MTBR Light Meter Measurements:
This light measured 50 lux on our ambient light measurement facility. In a laboratory, we measured actual lumens at 485.
- Very bright at 50 lux on the Mtbr Meter for the $150 msrp
- Excellent beam pattern
- Excellent flashlight
- Great value at $150
- Bar and helmet mount are included
- Bar mount can be a bit shaky on rough trails
- Goes on medium every time you turn it on instead of high mode
- Lock mode is confusing and just leads to frustrating situations
- USB cover won’t stay in place
- Light head can get hot as only the silver part is used for dissipating heat. The black part is plastic and stays cool.
It’s got some flaws but this is a great value self-contained light from Niterider. It is great for commuting and is one is good enough for mountain biking. Buy more than one if you want to ride at higher speeds.
