Niterider Pro 750 – 2012 Mtbr Lights Shootout

Lights Shootout Video

MTBR Light Meter Measurements:

This light claims 750 lumens and we measured 590 lumens in an integrating sphere.  That is pretty to close to claimed and is actually better than industry average when matching up to claimed output.  On the Mtbr Lux Meter, it measured 60 lux.  This is right there with the Exposure Diablo at 59 lux and the Lupine Piko 3 at 63 lux

Light Meter Charts and Comparison Table »

Strengths:

  • Good brightness at $250
  • Good lens optics and good beam pattern
  • Helmet and bar mounts are included with the system
  • Very light at $250 grams
  • Battery can be stem mounted.

Weaknesses:

  • 1.5 hour run time at high is too short
  • Too close in output and run time to the self-contained Minewt $600 at $150.
  • Small light head can get quite hot

Bottom Line:

This a decent light from Niterider that is light with good brightness. Competition is tough though including other lights from the Niterider line like the Minewt 600

The beam pattern is fairly wide and it looks pretty good on our backyard beam pattern below. It’s not that strong though and doesn’t have a center spot. So as you can see on the trail beam pattern. you can’t see very far on that trail with the orange marker at the 100 foot mark and the green marker on the 200 foot mark.
