MTBR Light Meter Measurements:

This light measured 150 Mtbr lux on our ambient light measurement facility. This is a staggering amount of light and really puts it in the heavy-hitter category. The other lights in its company are:

Exposure Six Pack, $600- 135 lux

Light and Motion Seca 1400 -$700 – 114  lux

Light Meter Charts and Comparison Table »


  • First class light head with machining and quality
  • Good lenses and reflector deliver an excellent beam pattern
  • Light switch stays out of the way and closer to the rider
  • Very good center mount
  • Great value at $450
  • Warranty and customer service reputation is excellent.


  • Light can get quite hot
  • 1.5 hour run time at high is quite short.

Bottom Line:

This is a stunning light from Baja Designs as it doubles the output of previous light and the price only goes up by $100.  With the included new mount worth $35, this is almost a bargain.

The beam pattern is one of the best too as it achieves the coveted ‘breadth and depth’ balance.
