|The Battery and Control unit|
|Comes with Ladder Sling for attachment to cycling helmet or any other surface|
This is how the sample unit attach itself to the bicycle helmet. The Ladder Sling attachment were used for this purpose. The color (green) of the knob denotes what color this FibreFlare is. That is also the activation knob for the MVP.
|One screw to open/close the control/battery unit|
|Battery cover removed to reveal 2xAAA battery. The round knob is how the suction cup or the Ladder Sling attaches to this unit. Shown is the YELLOW (on loan to me) unit. The MVP wording in Yellow denotes the FibreFlare Color|

|Loop over the Ladder Sling and insert the notch on the hook|
|And You are done!|

On Motorbike Helmet
A simple swap of the Ladder Sling with the suction cup convert the MVP into a Motorbike helmet ready light. The unit comes with 2 pads (3M quality) to be used on non-smooth surface helmet. What this meant is that it can be used on matte surface helmet.
|The Suction Cup|
As my helmet is smooth surface, sticking the MVP onto the helmet was not an issue. The biggest (petty issue) was to put the MVP dead centre. Yes, I am anal when it comes to things like this.
|The MVP switched ON.|
I first experimented the MVP on my Givi helmet (Review of this practical everyday use helmet soon). and it lighted up well in a semi-dark room.
|In fact, it lighted up the whole working desk|
|Looked like double light source|
|Stuck On You - as Elvis would sing|
This is how it looked like in early evening as I was preparing to go home.
|Uneven light beam is due to the flashing mode I set.|
|Imagine the visibility earned at night fall|
