Exposure Lights Diablo – 2012 Mtbr Lights Shootout

Lights Shootout Video

The Exposure Diablo is the leader of the self-contained light phenomenon. It crams three Cree XPG emitters in a tiny housing and packages it in the slickest flashlights you’ve ever seen. It has a nice bar mount but it really shines with its pivoting helmet mount. It provides, the ultimate hassle-free helmet attachment.

With the light output nearly doubling from last year, this is now a great light. And it is completely useable in descents at mid power and it lasts 3:20 on one charge. If you want the ultimate hassle-free and bike light, the Exposure Diablo is a great option. It is only hampered by the short run time but the optional piggyback battery addresses that issue with an extra hour of run time.

Helmet mounting is done with a snap-in pivoting ball system. Once installed, the light can be popped in and it can be adjusted in any direction. It rides a bit high on the helmet but it can pop off in the even of a collission with a low hanging branch. The light can be easily used as a trail flashlight too since it’s so easy to access.
