NiteFlux PMini 12 – 2012 Mtbr Lights Shootout

Lights Shootout

MTBR Light Meter Measurements:

The Mtbr light meter measured 62 lux and the integrating sphere measured 660 actual lumens.  That’s not really close to the lumen claims so we were slightly disappointed.  But this is still an impressive light that is slightly brighter than the Lupine Piko 3 or the Niterider Pro 750.

Light Meter Charts and Comparison Table »


  • Excellent light output and wide and consistent beam pattern
  • Awesome innovation with wireless switch
  • Impressive output for the weight
  • Good run time at 1:45 on high.  It’s easy to conserve battery since the light switch is so convenient


  • Far off lumen claims of 1000
  • $500 is a lot money for this output

Bottom Line:

Good light with great technology but quite pricey.  Still, it’s one of the ultimate helmet lights around for portability and useability.
