Light Meter Measurements:
This light measured an impressive 72 lux on our ambient light measurement facility. This is twice as bright as last year’s Diablo at 36 lux. It is such a huge improvement that it has really doubled the useability of this light. The light has switched from using one Seoul P7 emitter to three Cree XPGs. The light is much brighter but it is not quite as wide as last year’s since it doesn’t have a reflector.
For comparison, the Magicshine MJ-808 claimed at 900 lumens measures 37 lux on our test bed.
- Almost twice as bright as last year at the same weight and price
- now features USB charging so you can charge it with your computer or any USB output
- No wires
- machining and quality are first rate
- carrying case is just right
- the light is very handy as a flashlight around the trail and around the house
- A bit pricey at $400
- Handlebar mount is not up/down adjustable while on the bike
With the light output nearly doubling from last year, this is now a great light. If you want the ultimate hassle-free and bike light, the Exposure Toro is a great option. If you want long run times in a compact bar light, the Toro is a great choice. Otherwise, the Diablo is an even more versatile light for bar and helmet use.
