new light? not trouties /dx p7
I'm selling a 1000 lumen set of Lumis http://www.singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/fs-lightsPosted 8 years agoTrailseekerMember
Just stuck them on the scales & the lot comes in at 588 grams – lighter than Lumicycle quote!Posted 8 years ago
The lamp units are 72grams so very light & I think that weight includes the bar mount that would be removed if helmet mounting
Helmet mount kits are available here (includes extention lead) http://www.lumicycle.com/product/58/hel_kit1/helmet-kit-for-one-lamp-unit.htmlTheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber

I have a Lupine Tesla, great little light and works perfectly on your lid. £225 from Swinnertons
Dont let the 700 lumens fool you either, the optics are so good it is as bright as a Hope 4.
That's because the quoted 960 lm of the Hope is closer to 700lm.
Saying that, I have one and I'm very pleased with it.Posted 8 years agoEwanMember
I've seen the Four4th lights in the flesh. Given they're not expensive compared to some, they're the only ones that are making me um and ah about just getting the deal extreme light. Seriously bright, very nicely made, and most importantly don't look like someone has knocked them up in a bedroom and slapped a 200 quid price tag on. The bar / helmet mount predefined angles thing is a work of genesis.
The helmet light battery is *tiny* as well.
(FYI I don't have any connection to Four4th what so ever, beyond having seen a set on a ride)Posted 8 years agoCountZeroMember
The Leddite Luma is a DX Bike light. Fact. If you look at the review it says you can buy the light for $80 from the Far East, (Deal Extreme), all you need for the DX light is a plug adaptor costing about a quid. Buy the DX from source and save £100. The AirBike light from On-One uses the same SSC P7 emitter, but is much more 'floody'. This I know as I have both lights. The AirBike is perhaps a bit better made, but the DX is just as good, and a lot cheaper. You can also get P7 torches from DX which produce the same 700 (not 900) lumens as the Exposure lights, just not as stylish, and will cost about $40, around £20, plus another tenner for a couple of 18560 batteries and a charger. You'll save yourselves around £200. Yes, I've got a DX Aurora SSC P7 torch, which is incredibly bright, with a tighter spot than the DX.Posted 8 years agoTaylorplayerMember
I want a light that can be toggled between lo/hi without going through flash/off cycle first (most of my riding is on the road, single lane unlit country roads). Something along the lines of the he exposure strada, but £220 seems a lot for 480 lumen light.
I'll probably keep up with the indecision untill next april by which time i won't need a new light.
Though a smudge battery with a lumi lamp might do the job (no dip mode though).Posted 8 years ago
