- The Road CC 2013 light test…
OK it’s not got every light available on it, but it’s a pretty good indicator for most current commercially available lights. I particularly like the beam comparison graph at the bottom which shows the spread and shape of the light beam as well as the Lux level at 2m. For instance, comparing a £20 ebay special vs the Gemini Duo, you can see that at the centre of the beam they are equally bright, but the cheapo light has very little spill and is an exceptionally narrow beam.
Oh, and as I’ve just found out (after initially criticising the pictures being taken on a bend) that if you hover over the centre line in the beam shot pic, you can then drag it each way with your mouse to see more or less of each beam pattern you’re comparing!

Have a look and take your pick. ‘Best’ is partially dependent on budget. I run Ay-Ups and love them, until the Far East revolution (DX/Magicshine/SolarStorm etc) came along they were the best value on the market, plenty bright, and came as a pair (helmet and bar lights plus batteries) for the same price as a single Exposure unit did. I’ll be upgrading the LEDs this year, but even on the ‘old’ (c. 5 years) set, they’re still cracking lights.Posted 4 years agocuriousyellowSubscriber
I want one with no cables, and want three lights in total. Two for helmets so I can use them on the road helmet for commuting, come home, swap helmets and be out for a night ride. And one bar mounted light for the MTB.
I can spend up to £1000 (C2W accessories voucher if going for Exposure etc) or £2-300 if buying in a shop/online).
I looked at the Torchy site and the Fluxient looks good. However, the cables put me off.Posted 4 years ago
