MTBR Light Meter Measurements:
This light measured 40 lux on our ambient light measurement facility. This is pretty conservative compared to industry averages for its 400 lumen claims. In the laboratory, we measured acutal output to be 330 lumens.
For comparison, the first Light and Motion Urban 500 measured in at 53 lux with 466 lumens. Dinotte’s own XML-1 measured in at 51 lux and 459 actual lumens. Both lights are much cheaper than the Dinotte 400 and are available under $170.
- Very versatile in applications as helmet, bar and tail light with sturdy mounting options
- Top notch design and construction.
- Heat dissipation is excellent
- best switches and connectors
- Flash mode is available but not in the way of normal operation
- These lights are just not bright enough now a this price point.
- There is no quick way to mount or un-mount the lights since they are bolted on
This is a great design but the LEDs have to be updated to keep up with the latest crop of XML lights
