Troute lights…talk to me.
Trout’s Lumen Liberator is probably the best MTB light out there. A bold statement I know, but given it’s ridiculously broad beam pattern, that lights from right in front of your front tyre to as far as you need to see and is also a very broad beam pattern. You pay for the privilege of course, but then you will do with many other makes too. I’ve used many of the expensive lights out there on the market, and for offroad use, none can quite match the Liberator’s beam pattern IMO. The Exposure Six Pack for instance, is very good, and very bright, but can’t match the Liberator.
Of course, for road use, the opposite is true really. The Liberator has too broad a beam pattern, which could be a distraction to cars. Something with a narrower, more intense, beam pattern would be better suited for on road riding.

JohhnyBoy, buy a Liberator off Troutie. You won’t be disappointed. (I have two).
Re the batteries I have a regular battery plus an enduro version which is more bulky. I reckon it makes sense to go for the regular battery and if you start doing the occasional longer night ride (or 12/24 hr event) then just buy a second battery.Posted 4 years agoTurnerGuyMember
I wanted one but went for the gloworm X1 and X2 setup as Troutie was in some sort of disillusioned state where he was more interested in making beer than doing anything with lights or answering sales enquiries or fixing his website so I could see details of the new liberator and order one.
So I decided that even if I managed to get one that I couldn’t cope with the potentially flaky support I might get if I had problems.
With the STW premium discount it brought the price of the X1/X2 combo closer to the liberator and it has the advantage of a bar light and a helmet light.Posted 4 years agokeithyrMember
ust a bit of feedback.
i have the darkness dominator on bars and liberator mini on helmet. Both are excellent products/quality. The DD is incredible and great output and good spread. The mini is perfect for helmt with lower output but slightly warmer light output which is perfect.
over a year after i bought them i broke the cable connector to the DD. Quick email to Troutie, sent the battery down and troutie fixed up another connector for minimal cost.
cant recommend them highly enough.
