Niterider Pro 750 – 2012 Mtbr Lights Shootout

Lights Shootout Video

The Niterider 750 sits in a middle of a crowded line of lights  with a small lighthead and small battery that provides 1.5 hours of output at a claimed 750 lumens.  It does the job pretty well as it has a good beam pattern and is bright enough to be used by itself for trail riding.

The light switch is now on the light head instead of the battery. The battery window is now just a charge status indicator.

It delivers this in a $250 price point. It is pretty competitive but it threatened by a host of new self-contained flashlight lights including the Minewt 600 at 600 lumens for $150.


  • Price: $250.00
  • Claimed Lumens: 750 Lumens
  • Light Head Weight: 95 grams
  • Installed Weight: 250 grams
  • Run Time: 1.5 Hours
  • Measured MTBR Lux: 60 Lux
  • Measured Lumens: 590 Lumens


Bar mounting on the handlebar is performed by rubber bands hooking on to holders on the light head. The light can be aimed and rotated slightly by loosening a mount screw. The battery can be stem mounted. On the helmet, a handlebar ‘pipe’ can be mounted to the helmet and the light head attaches to that. The battery can go on the helmet but the system is slightly too heavy at about 270 grams complete.
