Magicehine ALLTY 1000 is a new concept 1000 lumen front light with built-in daytime running light and 4000 mAh high capacity battery to increase riding safety. Red dot design 2019 award winner.
The Magicshine Allty 1000 is a compact unit that packs enough punch to illuminate even the darkest of road rides. It has a great beam, mode selection is simple, and all options are easy to navigate, even on the fly. It's not programmable and the battery indicator could be more detailed, but if you're looking for a do-it-all light road light, the Allty 1000 is very hard to beat for the price.

The Allty 1000 features a rugged aluminium body that's nice to find at this price. Behind the lens sit two bright Cree XP-L V6 LEDs and a smaller, always-on 55-lumen LED for daytime running. The casing tapers to keep it compatible with most out-in-front mounts.

n the box you find a standard bar mount with three different straps to accommodate the majority of bar sizes and shapes. I mounted the Allty to everything from skinny 28.5mm bars to chunky aero ones without issue.
One thing worth noting is that the aero mount doesn't allow for rotation around the bars, meaning the angle of the beam cannot be changed. For me the light fell where I wanted it anyway, but others may not be so lucky.

The included mount and clamp may be simple, but that's by no means a bad thing! For commuting especially it's useful to have a mount that stays attached when it's necessary to lock your bike up in a public place.

The Magicshine has an integrated 4000 mAh battery which allows for decent burn times even at high power, and up to 28.5 hours on its most frugal mode. The six modes are:
DRL (25 lumen/28.5 hours) A useful and always-on option that doesn't deplete the battery quickly.
Eco (250L/12.5hrs): I didn't use this much, as it's not bright enough for full dark, but it's okay under streetlights.
Medium (500L/4hrs): Good for most nighttime riding, and four hours is long enough for most nighttime rides.
High (1000L/1.8hrs): Bright enough for even the darkest of lanes, although it might struggle with off-road singletrack.
Flash 1 (1000 L/3hrs): What I call manic mode... this one's definitely eye-catching, so brilliant for urban riding to attract attention even from a distance.
Flash 2: (500 L/7.2 hrs): A steady flash that's still bright enough to get you noticed from about 200m, but with a much longer burn time.
