    looking at buying a new light for the SITS , but cant decide between the hope 4 led or the lumicycle led , does anyone have any bad things to say about either or both

    cheers

    Stunpy,i used the hope through last winter. i've struggled with night riding in the past.Not anymore. 9out of 10.
    I'm sure that the Lumicycle will do the job aswell.

    Deal extreme light – cheaper and brighter

    And would receive no product support at sits, is not proven, and finally fits the adage of buy cheap buy twice.

    I've got a lumi led and its spot on!

    Mates have hope 4's and are equally impressed!

    AYUPS, very light and loads of battery life. Comes with an in car charger too. And you have lights on your bars and helmet.

    Exposure FTW

    I'd like to know which is best too – no alternatives, I'm only interested in these two.

    DX bastid. Mines been fine. Extra battery pack off smudge.

    Or a troutlight if you've got more money.

    Rob – the two in the OP – 'tard.

    Well I flogged my Lumis last winter in favour of a bar mounted P7 from Deal Extreme and a helmet mounted Fenix L2D from the Photon shop. Absolutely no regrets (or wires for that matter). I could easily get away with just the P7, but I had the Fenix already.

    Product support at SITS isn't an issue for me (that was a joke, yeah?).

    Not sure – but defo go for the one with the best helmet mount – best place for lights by a mile.

    +1 for Exposure

    Lumcycle, fantastic service, great light and great burn times with the bigger battery. And you can by a battery with the y cable so can always run an extra lamp in the future.

    I run a lumi HID on the bars and the LED on my helmet, very good and 1300+ lumens 🙂

    AyUps for a good system and a bright light – new models out anyday now.

    Hope 4

    best on your lid.

    Spoke to hope at the earls court show and they mentioned it's "upgradeability" – seems that they may be using more powerful leds in the future and that they will retro fit into the current unit.

    Would recommend Hope 4, very good spread of light, good run times and amazing aftersales.

    Bought Lumi Led's this year and they're superb. I like the fact you can run your own home made batteries or older Lumi ones, the LED's can be changed in the future, multiple power settings, long run times and excellent customer service. Only downside is the cost if you want a flood and a spot but that looks the same with other LED's.

    Hope 4 got me through MM well enough and it's a lovely bit of kit to look at IMHO. Comes with a helmet mount and mine also came with a head strap thingy so you can wear it without a helmet.

    Davegr, the lumi led's use cutter led's and optics, get on of there 35mm triple optics and swap them around!
