Now this is just mountain bike jewelry. It is small, expensive and coveted. The size is diminutive and it only weighs 145 grams, but turn it on and it packs quite a punch displayed in big, even beam pattern.
It is really hard to believe that such a big 928 Lumen light comes out of such a small package. The one hour run time is not long but put it at 560 Lumens and you’ll get two hours out of it.
But alas, the US price is $399 so don’t lose it. I may use it as a safety key chain for everyday use.

Backyard Beam Pattern Photo: Compare all lights here.
We photographed the lights in the same location setting with the same camera settings. The photos were taken in the back yard that is approximately 25 yards long. These photos feature many objects and a distinct background to analyze detail and beam pattern.
Tunnel Beam Pattern Photo: Compare all lights here.
The location is useful since it has walls and a ceiling that can display a bike light beam pattern. The walls have a lot of graffiti on them and actually show detail when they are lit up by a light with a wide angle. Cones and targets are set up with the far target set up at 80 yards.
