  • Good light for it's price

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Beam is very good for nightrides through the woods. Heat dissipation is ok- while riding it doesn't get too warm.

    Build quality of the outer parts is quite good.

    Weight of the complete system is very low. Comes with a reuseable and noble looking packaging.

    Cons:

    Build quality of the inner parts ( solderings, led mount ) is not so good. But nothing that can't be fixed afterwards.

    The strobe mode is useless, a 5% brightness mode for the city would be much more useful.

    OtherThoughts:

    This is NO light for the City. Oncoming traffic gets glared ;-)

    Bottomline:

    If you want a light with >80% performance of the brightest branded products for 20% of their price, this is your deal. If you have technical skills: opening the light and checking for bad solderings is a good idea but normally not needed. Even for tuning or DIY projects this product is still a good base.

    Don't forget to buy a an adapter like sku.13525 if you live in Europe, the Light comes with an US Wall power supply.
