    Yes this is a blatent plug and I will send a drink or 2 to the management

    This is a CNC`d housing for the perfect helmet light or bar light
    there is even a discount for the leds optics and Maxflex at Cutters
    for more info ask
    and if you dont want to do it yourself then I will do it for you at a small cost



    very small but very powerfull and will probably use your existing battery

    How does it mount and will it work on, say, a 6 of diamonds?

    If you are serious mail me
    the housing is Β£ 50 plus pp

    the led kit from cutters is 120 aus dollars +pp or Β£53.66 today +pp

    you then need a switch and power conector

    output on full is 1164 lumens with R2 leds
    and with the soon available R3s 1326 lumens these are of course max ammounts

    it mounts to the helmet with a simple velcro strap or to the bars with most clamps you just need to drill a hole and bolt it on

    6 of diamonds Dont know lost that out the pack

    will you not need sunglasses to use all 1326 lumens?
    Beautiful but you are a lumen whore and you know it
    PS I own a previous Trout light and cannot recomend it highly enough near indestructable and still going strong. He even answers your querries when you admit you cant even wire a plug in properly!!!

    well played – the deceptively subtle buildup meant the latter part caught me off guard, causing an embarrassing desk-based laugh concealment πŸ˜†

    pretty impressive, so is it going to melt my head, or even worse…my helmet 😯

    Premier Icon trout

    Nope it will not melt you or your helmet it will dim to a lower power level
    if it gets too warm

    watch out trout!! “the man” is after you πŸ˜†

    very lovely looking light sir, can it take P7 emitters? where does the cable run? any chance of a toggle switch on the back? oh and do you do soapdishes? πŸ˜€

    Are you seriously offering to build them, or have i read that wrong?
    If so i would be very interested.

    Personally I cant understand why a bikelight company hasn’t snapped you up yet MrT

    Trout, sir, that is a fantastic piece of work. I’m most impressed, and I’m trying to work out how I can afford one at the mo’, as I’ve rather committed to a pair of forks from classifieds. I’ll keep a bookmark of this thread and get in touch later.

    yes please mr Trout..mail in profile

    That is a lovely thing and I’m also interested – email addy in profile. I’d need the option for dummies of getting a built one. Would it run from a 14.4V Li-ion battery?

    Mr Nutt
    I hope so .
    no it wont take p7s they are so yesterday πŸ™‚
    XPE is the future , cable is where ever you want , and switch is also whatever you want . it is diy after all . and yes you can have a matching soapdish.

    swiftacular.
    the original idea was just the housings for the diy builders
    but as I am an underworked floor layer at the moment then a few quid is better than nowt so yep i will build some up , the list is a bit long and i am going to be a bit busy in the freezing garage.

    Smudge I agree totally .

    no problems it could be a while before I catch up with the back log now. πŸ˜€

    does that mean you want one too

    14.4 battery is the perfect one for this light
    12 v will still work
    so will 7.2

    Nice work Trout… Now much for a full setup, head unit, battery and charger?

    Pinkstiffee
    Member

    Cant you put it all into one tidy unit ala Exposure Lights πŸ˜€ And can you make it smell of candyfloss as well πŸ˜‰

    Would be interested to see a ‘full build’ before I go and buy a MAXX D this week.

    That would be defeating the object have you tried an integrated battery light combo on your lid .

    yes it does smell of candyflos if you want it to .

    anyone in west yorkshire can pop in and have a look at one built and working.

    thanks all who have emailed me . I will get back to you but it has gone a bit crazy in my inbox so just bear with me

    Really not bothered about it on my lid, dont see the point. 720 lumens on the bars makes a headlight pretty worthless. 1000 lumens plus and it really isnt worth it bar for fixing punctures!

    Just want to get away from the wires is all, fed up of them πŸ™

    Nice work though fella

    But remember youre sunglasses! he had his whole combo on last time i popped in to see him and my retinas haven’t recovered yet πŸ™‚

    Actually MrT have you thought about outside light replacements for the power zapping halogen security lights?

    details please!

    Looking good Mr T…I might have to get you to build on up for me too πŸ˜€
