Wonder claims:
WONDER CICLU front cycle light is designed for cyclists to see and to be seen from a distance when traveling in the darkness. Clearly seen over 650 metres and from side view due to lens design.
WONDER CICLU remains illuminated even when a cycle is stationary, putting an end to the disadvantages of a dynamo which only works when a cycle is in motion.
WONDER CICLU is also ideal for use as a camping light using the clamp provided.

Slacken wing nut to loosen to loosen grip: adjust to fit cycle. Next place ball joint into cup housing and partially tighten wing nut. Insert lamp into retaining clip, adjust for final position and firmly tighten wing nut.
WARNING: Fix only to handlebars or steering head of frame. Do not fit to fork of cycle.
