Ravemen PR1600 Review: One Light For All Occasions?

by 0

Singletrack's 'other' Lakeland product tester, Piers, gets out after hours in order to bring us this Raveman PR1600 review  

I confess that I had not heard of Raveman before the PR1600 came through my letter box. So I open box and have a play with it without reading the instructions (We all do it, admit it.) Once unboxed the light feels well put together lots of nice aluminium, recessed buttons, fixings and a small digital display, USB in and out ports at the back covered with chunky rubber. A two button remote control with mount, charging lead and comprehensive instructions along with a battery for the remote and a 3mm Allen key are provided in the packet.

Here's what Raveman say about Raveman:

"Combining high quality and durable material with innovative design, along with the concern for riders and others' safety which has been fused into their genes, Ravemen promise their products will be not only reliable and easy-to-use to improve your riding experience, but also a trusted companion that will earn you respect from others."

We all read the instructions, right?

After reading the instructions, a few different features were to be found, not seen on other lights, that would be quite useful for long distance stuff. You can charge your other electronica from the 'USB out' port or boost your ride time from an external battery pack using the 'USB in'. Up front we have two LED: 2*CREE XM-L2s with a supposed lifespan of 50,000 hours. (I am not sure that the internal batteries or even my knees will last that long). The two lenses have differing lens designs. One lens is focussed to replicate a car’s headlights being dipped to oncoming traffic. This dipped mode is operated from the top buttons or the remote as are the different power settings including the flashing mode.
