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 1585 Lumens in an integrating sphere. Claimed Lumens by the manufacturer is 1600 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 »
The small, CatEye standard mount still continues to do the job with its plastic strap and knob adjustor. It holds the light well enough, but it has to be tightened securely to eliminate any shake from this light head. No helmet mount is included but other ‘pipe’ type mounts from other manufacturers can be used with this light. If there are two lights in use by the rider, this 1600 is best used on the bars mated with a Volt 800 on the helmet.
We still love the Volt lights and our key suggestion is to make the beam wider as the Lumen output increases to these 1600 Lumen levels.
