This lamp can maintain the high brightness of the original District lamp whilst increasing the run time with the 2600mAh battery to up to 200 hours. The lamp now features six power levels, three static and three flash settings.
The battery can be mounted either at the front of the bike as usual with the splitter taking power to the rear light, or vice versa with the battery running under the saddle or on the seatpost, thus leaving your bars that little bit more clutter free.
The lamp (even on max setting) takes minimal power from the battery, only affecting burn times by 6-20 minutes depending on mode used. The neat QR bayonet fitting securely attaches the lamp to the mount and releases quickly and easily to allow speedy removal from the bike when not in use.
Whether you use the light on the road or off the road, during the day or during the night - you’re sure to be safe in the knowledge that you’re doing as much as you can to stay visible from behind.
About Rear Lights
Almost all bicycle rear lights use LEDs instead of filament bulbs as they are more reliable and use much less battery power, whilst also offering much higher levels of brightness. Used in flashing mode, they are very good at attracting attention from other road users. It's advisable to use at least two rear bike lights, a common configuration is one flashing and one in constant, this is highly advisable just in case one stops or becomes obscured.
In order to cycle on the road it may be a legal requirement in your country to use a light certified to a specific standard or an international equivalent. Most but not all lights sold on Wiggle are certified and labelled with a European CEN standard. Please check your country’s requirements to see if this is sufficient and if necessary contact the manufacturer to see if this light has been additionally certified for your country. Strangely some of the very best lights are not legal on their own and should be used with an additional legal backup light.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
However I have just bought a new bike with an aero seat post and the bracket will not fit.
The Hope website says that they now have an aero post bracket available. When will wiggle be stocking these please...?
Our apologies for the delays this may cause.
If I wanted would it be possible to power this light as a standalone light using the 2600 mAh pack from the R4 pack?
It seems a cheaper option than buying the District with its battery and I may want to run a different front light from time to time
Your specification for the R4 does not give the Voltage only the capacity
"Both those batteries will work with either the R4 and District Rear light. One battery is 4 cell and the other is 2 cell, basically one will run twice as long."
I hope this helps.
