Light Meter Measurements:

This light measured 40 lux on our light. This was a bit lower than expected as most of the competition rated at 700 lumens came in at 45-50 lux.

Strengths:

  • great value at $199
  • good battery and charger for the price and upgrade paths are available
  • CNC’d head unit is A+
  • bar mount and helmet mount are excellent
  • helment mount crash detach feature is a good safety feature
  • US made and US supported.
  • connectors are bulletproof!

Weaknesses:

  • light output came in a bit lower than expected
  • ultra long wires are not ideal

Bottom Line:

If you want a basic, handmade helmet light with a traditional design, this is a good solution. You will be blown away by the light output possibility of a single helmet mounted head unit.
