MTBR Light Meter Measurements:
This light measured 63 lux on our ambient light measurement facility. This falls in line with other 800-1000 lumen lights in the shootout. The Niterider Pro 750 measured 60 lux and the Exposure Diablo measured 60 lux (claimed 975 lumens) on our Mtbr Lux Meter setup.
In an integreting sphere, we measured this light at 590 actual lumens. This is very good and closer to claimed lumens than most of the lights in this shootout.
- Small and convenient form factor
- Impressive light output and beam pattern
- Excellent mounting
- 2 hour run time is very good for its size
- Perfect for helmet mounting with the battery mounted at the back of the helmet.
- Lupine build quality, safety and longevity.
This remains as one of the best lights in the category right now. it is small and bright and very useabale. Ultimately, it just disappears in the riding experience and that is an art that is rarely achieved.
