The Blinder MINI has three characters in the gang. "Dot" with a single powerful LED. "Niner", so called for its array of 9 LEDs. And "Chippy", with Chips on Board technology giving a panel of light. These surface mounted LEDs punch well above their weight, with the 20/11 lumens for front/rear getting you seen from over 500m away. Niner and Chippy have reflected faces for added safety, and Dot, vain as she is, has a faceplate for added style and comes in 4 colours. With a weight of only 15 grams the light uses its tool-less attachment to securely connect to handlebars and frames of 22-32+mm.
