Cygolite TridenX 750 – 2012 Mtbr Lights Shootout

Lights Shootout Video

This light features a small but wide aluminum light head with good heat-dissipating surface area. Quality of materials is instantly obvious in the light, acessories and packaging.

This light features 4 light levels and 4 flash modes. It also has on site light level programming called OSP.  We tested it and it’s one of the easiest to use.  The rider can scroll through the four light modes without having to go through flash. Furthermore, OSP allows the rider to adjust each light level very easily just by pressing the button on the left and releasing it when the preferred light output for that setting is reached.

The packaging stands out as one of the best in class. It is compact and very professional. As you can see in the photos, everything is neatly organized and the box contains many of of the specs and important information.


  • Price: $350.00
  • Claimed Lumens: 750 Lumens
  • Light Head Weight: 113 grams
  • Installed Weight: 275 grams
  • Run Time: 2.5 hours
  • Measured MTBR Lux: 81 Lux


Mounting is excellent and easy to use. It has a very high quality mount that can take both bar sizes and it is screwed in to place with a handy thumbscrew. The light can be aimed left to right easily and the tension can be adjusted.  There is also an available helmet mount included in this kit.
