Beam Pattern Photo
We photographed the lights in the same location setting with the same camera settings. The photo was taken in the back yard that is approximately 25 yards long. The backyard beam pattern allows you to gauge the throw and the width of the light. Compare all Beam Patterns here »
Integrating Sphere Measured Lumens
This light measured 706 Lumens in an integrating sphere. Claimed Lumens by the manufacturer is 700 Lumens. The Lumen-hour graph below shows how the light performs over the first three minutes of its battery cycle. Compare all Lumen Tests here »
This light indeed has a nice beam pattern and the output is now 706 lumens which matches its 700 lumen claims. Weight is still a mind-blowing 119 grams making it a very modular light where the rider can use more than one to dial in the brightness.
Due to the small form factor and lack of any cooling fins, the light can heat up when used in warm conditions or on rides with a lot of stops. But the temperature management of the Ion 700 is sophisticated enough as it steps down in brightness when it heats up. It also ramps back up as airflow is achieved to cool the light.
