XML T6

Price: £67.00

From: MTB Batteries, www.mtbbatteries.co.uk

With a Cree T6 XM-L single LED offering a claimed 1000 lumens for less than £70 including postage, this light screams out bargain. Combined with the supplied 7.5V 4.4mAh Li-Ion battery, it offers between three hours burn time on high and 30 hours on low. Battery condition is easily assessed via the illuminated rear button which offers a green and red indicator; once it hits red you should be able to squeeze 30 minutes of light to get back home. A flash mode is available for commuting purposes. The light body attaches to the bars via a rubber ring and a lengthy cable allows for plenty of choice in battery placement.

In use, we found the light offered a concentrated bright spot with a halo of dimmer illumination. The medium setting was fine for easier trails but high was required for more technical sections. Swapping between the two settings allowed a burn time of around four hours to be obtained, although leaving the light on high will still allow a decent three hour ride length.

Overall:

Not the best light spread out there, but it delivers great value lumens with a decent burn time too. If you’re on a budget look no further.
