Planet Bike Superflash Turbo Rear Bike Light Review

Momentum Mag reviews the Planet Bike Superflash Turbo Taillight.

PRICE $33.99 USD


The Superflash Turbo uses a 1-watt power LED plus 2 red LEDs for visibility up to 1 mile (1.6 km) with power from two AAA batteries that provide up to an estimated 100 hours of light. The small vertical design is weatherproof and lightweight, and includes bike and clip mounts. Soft-touch button makes for an easy switch between flashing or steady modes.


Keeps you visible on rainy days or dark nights with no fuss – simply slide it into the clip and light your way home with safety or hit the turbo flash and roll along as your own little bike rave!


I usually opt for USB-chargeable bike lights, but they need charging often whereas this little light just keeps going!


I have been a user of several Planet Bike lights, the simple, weatherproof design, brightness and battery longevity of the Superflash Turbo make this light top-notch in my books.

The Turbo Mini is now available in the Momentum Shop!

    I own this light in all its variants; Blinky Superflash, Stealth they are all phenomenal but the Superflash Turbo is the best, I don’t know why everyone doesn’t have one of these lights on every bike they ride. It lends visibilty to your bike at night and during the day. They have been a staple of my riding for years and they just keep going; rain, snow , sleet, slush, etc..

    I have fancier lights and more expensive lights but the Superflash and its companion Blaze headlight stay on my commuter bike all year round. I don’t have to baby them or remember to recharge them or worry too much about leaving them unattended when I lock my bike up because they slip off in a second and go into my pocket. And the redesigned Blaze is pretty sexy looking!

    Best of all, Planet Bike gives 25% back to cycling advocacy, so it’s a good feeling to support them!

    I purchased the PlanetBIke Superflash turbo last year. It’s a great taillight for the price and, when combined with Sanyo Eneloop rechargeables batteries, it makes for the right solution to stay visible at night.
