The light is light weight, very bright and a good price. It brightens up the trails at night, and has a pretty good spread of light. Run time is also pretty good (I have run it for a couple of hours, switching between medium and high, and it lasted for the full ride). The rubber O-ring mounts for these lights are junk for anything rougher than a road. If you use the mount that comes with the light, before you know it the light will be pointing at the ground, or worse, blinding you. Also, the light connector plastic housing was too big for the power connector plastic housing. I could push the connectors together enough for them to work, but not enough to trust it to stay together on a bumpy downhill section. This wasn't a problem for me since I made up a spare battery pack, so I put T-connectors on everything. I trashed the O-ring mount, and modified another mount (which works brilliantly). My light doesn't move at all. However, DX offer a mount which should work without modifications (SKU 167007). If you are worried about the rubber band breaking, maybe you could use your o-ring for that or wire, or plastic straps... They claim it is 2500lm, I don't know if it is that bright, but it is certainly brighter than my 1800lm HID, and all my 900lm flashlights. I'd say it is about 2000lm on high. I find that 1500lm on a downhill section is plenty (when combined with a 900 lumen helmet light), so I rarely move it off of medium. Also, "high" is not significantly brighter than "medium" (maybe 15% or so, enough to notice it, but not a huge difference). Good value, solid light, but if you want to use it "off-road", you may need to make some minor modifications.
