StVZO approval no: K514 + K602
See the camera settings page for more on the setup and settings to make pictures of the beams of taillamps.
Out of a corner (showing how much light is cast upwards, forwards and to the sides) [ F3.9 & F1.8 ]:
Wallshot (showing the beam pattern):
Visibility from various angles (0°, 45°, 90°, 135°) [ 0.5m, zoom x3, F3.5, ISO80, 1/250s & 1/60s ]:
Wide light with a bright dot in the middle from the LED, it's quite annoying for people riding behind you. Better than the Flat plus, but still a poor rear lamp because of its annoyance to other road users.
This lamp, in contrast with the predecessor flat plus, has proper overvoltage protection that will last. So if the front lamp is defective (which normally has an overvoltage protection), you can still cycle on with just the taillamp working.
As to size and weight: It's amazing that this taillamp is about the same weight as the Basta Ray which is much bigger!
Annoying for following traffic until which distance?: ≈12m
Visibility: Surprisingly quite poor in the long distance visibility test, just like the Flat plus.
Visibility by reflection: To be tested.
Ease of connecting wires: Good for 2.8 mm plugs.
See Theory for taillamps.
Annoying for following cyclists, visibility is fairly poor as well, therefore: Not recommended.
