- Gloworm X1 Light
Hi Mugsys_m8 – glad she received the bits ok. Has Béné got any 24 hour races planned for this year?
The X1 has been designed mainly as a helmet light to compliment the X2. The main differences between the X1 and the X2 are –
Single Cree XM-L U2 emitter
Lighthead 58g including switch harness and mount
2 cell battery pack giving 2.25hrs on max (upgrade to 4 cell battery pack available)
Helmet mount (optional QR bar mount available compatible with X1 and X2)
Comes with 3 new custom optics – Superspot, Spot and Flood
Gloworm X2Posted 7 years ago
Twin Cree XM-L U2 emitters
Lighthead 80g including switch harness and helmet mount
4 cell battery pack as standard (2.5 hours on max)
Helmet mount and O-ring bar mount (optional QR handlebar mount available – fits X1 and X2)
Standard Spot/Flood optics (spot and flood optics available to customise beam pattern)
Some exciting news for those of you waiting on their X1.
Gloworm X1 will now be coming with XM-L U3 emitters instead of the XM-L U2 that was originally planned. The U3 emitter will give an extra boost to brightness of around 8% (70 lumens).
They just managed to acquire U3 this week and for this reason delayed production slightly. They will be shipping to the UK on 18th December and so with a fair wind will just scrape in before Christmas.
The QR mounts will be available and ship at the same date.Posted 7 years ago
The Gloworm X1s have finally arrived and all pre-orders have been shipped so if you are waiting for one it should be with you in the next couple of days.
I have to say I’m pretty wowed by the finished article – it’s really small, light and throws like a good’un. On my scales it weighs in at 60g including the helmet mount and remote switch.
Here are some pictures of the finished article and some comparison pictures to show it’s size next to the X2 and a Smudge XM-L T6 light I own.

took my pair of X1 and X2 out on Saturday.
The X1 is an awesome bit of kit. Id say it outshines the X2!
Way more throw than the X2. Ive not used the X2 on the bars before, but was happy with it as a helmet light. The X1 blows it out of the water as a helmet light. i ended up setting the X2 quite low to flood the immediate trail and let the X1 light the way ahead.
great pair of lights, cant imagine wanting more.Posted 7 years ago
Sorry folks I hadn’t seen the updates to the thread
Did you get the beam shots?
Would be interested to see the comparison with the X2.
I did get some which I posted on MTBR but they aren’t very good as the wind was that strong it was moving the camera on the tripod during the exposure (the standard for MTBR beamshots is 6secs) making them very out of focus.
I’ll try to get more tomorrow.
is neninja still knocking around? i emailed him before xmas and got a reply – but have since tried and not heard a beep, just after a velcro patch for the button as mine has come off and my button unit is now flapping about everywhere
Hi Dave – sorry I thought we’d left it that I would send the new patch as soon as the spare ones arrived. You should have the strip of velcro I posted as a stop gap now.Posted 7 years ago
Cheers neninja apologies out was before I had a response, so my fault….Danny sorted Me out a strip of velcro out of his own pocket, so is a top bloke for me, hopefully I’ll get this to stick down but been assured when patches come in I’ll get one of those too….great service as always Id say! The x2 is s great light and I’m sure this x1 would be a perfect combo alongside the x2Posted 7 years ago
