Exposure Equinox vs Diablo
The newer light will have a new battery, but it might also have a higher capacity
That’s a point. They’re both advertised as 3400mAh but I suppose one’s potentially been sat on a shelf for 3 years.
I’ve heard people say they don’t like the tap thing – E.g. it turns the light down when you go off a drop! I take it you haven’t had such an issue?Posted 5 months agoSuperficialMember
Hi all, a rather specific lights question for you – I’m after a new head light. I’ve got a Gemini Duo that I have been using on the head but plan to stick on the bars. I really like the remote control on that but it wobbles a bit and is heavy on the helmet.
For the same price I can get:
Diablo MK9 – this is the newest Diablo model, only released a few weeks ago. No remote (but has a tap facility).
Equinox mk1 – My LBS is selling NOS. This is a few years old now (2014 I think) but was more expensive and on paper it’s brighter than the Diablo, and comes with a remote. A bit heavier though (140g vs 119).
Given that I’m using this as a second light, I don’t need it to be ridiculously bright. I’m leaning towards the Equinox but if someone can tell me the Diablo is more modern and better, I’ll go for that.

I’ve had both. I have a very old Diablo and I had the first gen equinox. I found the remote to be such a faff that I never used it and even when I ran the equinox at full tilt I found that I couldn’t justify the cost over the old Diablo so I sold it.
Reaching back and touching a button or tapping the light really isn’t much of an inconvenience. I think my Diablo is getting on for 9 years old now. Sounds impoosible but I’m pretty sure my wife bought it to me as an engagement present or something around that time anyway.
