NOW TIME FOR SOMETHING NEW!
Nothing seems to have changed with mountain bike lights for what feels like a decade…. because nothing did change! 10 years ago ushered in the age of LED’s which transformed bike lighting from heavy halogen and HID products to longer lasting LED units. Problem is that everyone just put an LED inside a bowl reflector…. and kept doing that. Nothing different than a flashlight you buy at the hardware store.
Every year brings more reported lumens, more new housing designs, some fancy electronics, but nothing changes for what really matters in a light, the actual beam pattern. That is until we came around.
Traditional bike lights have the same beam pattern that everyone knows and is used to. The flashlight-like spot round pattern. Why is this so? Because it is extremely easy and extremely cheap to make. There are lots of off-the-shelf reflector designs to chose from that are put into custom designed cases. No need to hire an engineering team to develop a custom reflector.
What would it look like if you did have an experienced automotive lighting engineer design a custom reflector using the latest in LED technology? Would be something like this:
The wide evenly lit hotspot is the core technology in our lights. Even though peak measured intensity is much lower than other lights because we are spreading that energy out evenly, the result is dramatic when you start your first ride with the Trail Edition.
Movement on the handlebars doesn’t move the beam pattern around which allows your eyes to be focused where you are going without losing sight.
The massively wide illumination field also heightens your peripheral vision, so your depth perception isn’t lost, a common complaint about night riding. This makes your rides less stressful and more fun.
The Road Edition light that goes on your head concentrates the beam pattern more, allowing for more “punch”, but it maintains the evenly lit light carpet in front of the bike.
When you combine the Trail Edition on your handlebar, and the Road Edition on your helmet, it creates a system that works together that elevates your night riding to the next level. Zero hotspots, illumination where you are looking ALL the time, and one continuous wall of light that makes night riding an absolute joy even when looking deep into the corners.
This package outperforms ANY expensive single high power light because the beam patterns work together in harmony to do two separate but crucial jobs.
Bright lights are awesome. It’s easy to make a really bright light (it’s all over eBay and Amazon). What isn’t easy is to make a bright light last a long time without an enormous bank of batteries.
Our LED driver is just as well engineered as our beam patterns. This means the Outbound light is more efficient with the energy it uses. Allowing for longer run times, cooler operating temperatures and increased reliability.
The “Adaptive Mode” is a mode that starts out on the high setting for 10 minutes, then over the course of 35 minutes as your eyes adapt to the darkness and the available light, the brightness is reduced to the medium setting. You do not notice it, but it adds nearly an hour to your ride time. It’s a feature designed to make your ride more enjoyable and worry-free. No more having to check the status of your lights hoping you have enough to get another couple miles in.

I do a lot of my riding in my neighborhood at night due to strange work hours. There are street lights and very little traffic, but the roads are glorified minefields.
I’ve been using just basic lights the last couple of summers, and finally decided to get myself an upgrade.
I’m upset I didn’t do it sooner.
The lights are AMAZING. The Downhill Package cones with everything you need to make sure you can see what’s ahead.
I love how the Road Edition has a cutoff. With my old spot lights I’d sometimes get cars turning their high beams on at me, but since using the Road Edition this hasn’t been an issue. It’s just solid light directed where it needs to be directed.
The Trail Edition gives me the confidence to actually try riding my MTB at night on the trails, which before this light I’d have never even entertained the idea of trying that.
The package is great, and holds everything well. Batteries hold their charge well and the included chargers work great.
Overall I’m EXTREMELY pleased with this purchase.
This is the start of my second season with the "downhill" light package. I am still loving these lights and think they are amongst the best performers in the the market. When you consider the price and value they are the best overall package for sure. Turns night to day and I never worry about battery life.
Customer service is top notch.
I ordered the Trail light first to do a test before committing to the full DH package. After 1 ride, I placed an order for the road edition as well. I don't have any experience previous to these lights to compare to, but these lights are great! I am comfortable riding full speed with just the trail edition light, but when the pair are used together, It feels almost like normal daylight riding. Dark spots are minimal, and can even see into the trees off trail. (this is important for spotting the moose up in Alaska) I am extremely happy that I decided to go for this lighting system. Fit and finish is solid, nothing feels finicky or weak. As stated in the description, these lights feel like they put out way more lumens than their specs indicate. I don't have any excuse for not riding at night anymore! Looking forward to exploring any new products that Matt releases in the future!
Aside from the quality product, customer interaction/ support from Matt is top notch. Emails are answered promptly, and it is clear that he takes the time to think about his response rather than just blasting off an email in a rush.
I cannot recommend these lights enough! I like supporting the "little guy" especially when the product is as solid as these.
Wow, wow and crikeys - it's daylight again!!
Where do I start? I've only had two rides with these lights so far, but the difference is nothing less than outstanding.
1) Well made, I mean they feel really solid and the button has a very nice positive tactile feel. Not some spongy "I think I pressed it" type feel, but nice positive click.
2) The battery packs aren't too big especially for the power and life they provide. Also, the little pouches they come in are easy to attach thanks to the longer than normal straps with velcro at the join and the end and including an extension cable is a nice touch which means I can take it off the helmet and put it in my Camelback taking just a little weight off my head.
...and now the fun part...
3) I was riding with a mate last night who has a not so bad LED type light with a separate battery with multiple light settings (sorry, didn't take note of the brand). Anyway, he turned his on and it was nice (much better than my previous Ayup lights - still a good amount of light). Then I turned my new puppies on. WELL, the soft light began to spread as the handle-bar mounted lens energized. Up came the intensity and when it reached full brightness, my mate's light may as well have not been on - couldn't even see it's beam. In fact, there were a couple of times I was riding next to him and he simply turned his off - they weren't doing anything. The noticeable difference was the significantly increase in light either side of center. The increased panoramic vision at night is simply breath-taking and adds the peripheral vision I didn't notice I didn't have previously. (I think I was laughing to myself for at least 2kms). When I turned the helmet mounted light on..........well, holy sh$#!! IT's DAYLIGHT AGAIN!! I used to have all sorts of excuses "I couldn't see all those rocks"; the track contours looked flat"; "I couldn't see around the corner as my light beam was too narrow". Not anymore. Can't use them.
I should mention two things:
Just got my Ultimate Downhill package and can’t say enough about how great this setup works. Did a short 1 hour ride first night I had these and went with my brother in law who has a very nice “traditional” setup and I will tell you there is NO comparison. The outbound trail handlebar light floods the area around you with even bright light and then the road version mounted on your helmet reaches out and covers where ever you point your helmet. Because both lights have a fair bit of width to their beams they are far more forgiving and better light twists and curves which come with any MTB riding.
The lights, batteries, battery cases, connectors and even the case are all exceptionally well made and thought out. Run time seems to at least match the specs (though a bit hard to judge based on my one short ride so far) and output is every bit as much as you see in the videos. Overall I’m very happy with this set so far and happy to recommend this to anyone looking for a very useable MTB night riding solution. Matt was great to deal with and I love knowing I’m supporting a small US business owner with this purchase. Order yours now - Matt will have a hard time keeping up with demand as word get out about the quality and value of this lighting set.
