MTBR Light Meter Measurements:
This light measured 71 lux ont the MTBR Lux setup. This is really impressive as it is on par with many lights that claim 800-1000 lumens. This makes it one of the most powerful self contained lights today.
The Exposure Toro retails for $400 and claims 975 lumens but only measures 66 Mtbr lux in our setup. Other lights that are around the same brightness are:
|Hope R4||$391.00||70 lux|
|Gemini Xera||$$200||71 lux|
|Jet Lites F-1||$179.00||71 lux|
|Jet Lites X-51||$200.00||72 lux|
|Baja Designs Strykr II||$300.00||74 lux|
|BikeRay III||$159.00||74 lux|
- Impressive construction
- Very good cooling with heatsinking, and heat transmission from the LED throughout the case
- Beam pattern has a big halo with a very bright hotspot
- Run time is better than most self-contained lights
- Good value at $179
- Battery is field replaceable
- Helmet mount is secure, well-made and detaches on a crash
- Dual action switch is convenient
- No USB charging and battery has to be removed to be charged.
- Center spot of beam pattern could be a little bigger.
At $179, this light really holds it’s own against the best that Germany and the UK have to offer.
