It consists of the Buster 1100 front light and the Buster RL 150 rear light

A few weeks ago the new release of buster range of the SIGMA brand, one of the benchmarks in the world of cycling.

They launched the front models BUSTER 1100, BUSTER 800, BUSTER 400 and BUSTER 150 and the taillights BUSTER RL 150 and RL 80, with the aim of giving the cyclist a wide range of possibilitiess in benefits and prices to be able to choose the ones that best suit the needs of each one.

From Triathlon News today we analyze the SET Buster 1100, but first of all it is important to be aware of the need to have good lighting to avoid accidents when we go out with the bike since it gives us:

Why is a bicycle light necessary?

Greater visibility:

The lights allow you to be seen by other vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists on the road, increasing your safety by reducing the risk of collisions or accidents.

Greater security:

Being visible, drivers can anticipate movements and act accordingly, reducing the risk of accidents.

night visibility:

Lights allow you to see and be seen in low-light conditions, helping you maintain control of your bike and help you anticipate obstacles or hazards.

Increased visibility in adverse weather conditions:

They also allow you to be seen in rainy or foggy conditions, which increases the safety of the cyclist and the risk of accidents.

BUSTER 1100

This headlight comes ccomposed of a single piece that can be perfectly adjusted to each handlebar.

Manually or with just a screwdriver it can be perfectly adjusted thanks to the different rings that are included (22-31mm and 31,8-25mm). In addition, you can buy an additional accessory that gives us the possibility of also placing it on the helmet.

Regarding the technical part It has 1100 lumens and a range of 165 meters, It is the top model in the range, offering the maximum range of light both for seeing and for cars to see us.

It has a new double lens that has two different optics and two Osram leds that offer great luminosity and a wide and homogeneous light pattern.

This makes both sides of the road or path illuminate and facilitates vision in curves and possible branches or elements that we can find while we are driving with low visibility.

Like everything you make SIGMA is very easy to use. Just by pressing a button you can switch between the 6 lighting modes that this model has (an additional one to its predecessors, since in this model they include the "eco" that gives a range of up to 50 hours.

The modes are High, Medium, Low, Eco, night flashing and day flashing

How to turn it on and change lighting modes:

  • To choose the type of mode with the device turned off press for 5 seconds the button and it will begin to cycle through the different modes. Press again to select the one that best suits your needs.
  • If you just want to turn it off press for 2 seconds
  • If you would like to turn it back on press 2 times in a row and it will return to the previously selected mode.

It also has a charge level indicator that decreases according to use. This indicator will turn red, if the storage capacity is less than 20%, which means that you will have about 45' of use left.

In the package comes a usb c cable to be able to carry it comfortably.

As well It has a memory mode (by pressing twice) that allows, as we mentioned before, once it is turned off, it can be turned on again in the same mode previously selected.

We also highlight that it can be placed on the helmet if you want to have lighting where you look.

PROS:

  • High lumen level giving maximum visibility
  • Versatile: It can be put on the bike handlebars and on the helmet.
  • Robust and Reliable
  • Excellent autonomy, up to 50 h in “eco” mode
  • Waterproof
  • Reflective, on its side the logo is engraved with a reflective ink that gives greater visibility

CONS

  • Weight of 225 grams. From our point of view, something high for use with a road bike, although it is for the light power that it offers if you are going to go out or return without light, it is totally justified and more so for the benefits it brings.
  • helmet accessory you have to buy it separately
