Description

This is it. The road bike light that resets the standard for bike lights.


CUTOFF LINE FOR ROAD SAFETY

Developed by an experienced automotive lighting engineer using the same software and design as OEM headlights. This means is a unique reflector design that redirects and uses every lumen efficiently in a highly developed beam pattern that is unlike any other bike light on the market. Circular spot beam patterns don’t belong on cars, so they don’t belong on your road bike either.

The cutoff beam pattern uses the same standards that automotive car headlights are held to, so you will not blind oncoming traffic (which increases your safety), but can still put the brightest part of your light far downrange (even safer!).

This engineered beam pattern also redirects light around your bike to build a “light carpet” that evenly illuminates from your tire all the way to where your eyes are looking. Meaning as you are turning around junctions, tight turns on pathways, or just turning onto a trailhead on your gravel bike, you’ll always be able to see where you are going.

This is a unique take on a road bike light, and unlike anything available.


BEAM PATTERNS

This shows how the Road Edition has a sharp cutoff line, and then evenly distributes the light down towards your tire.

A traditional bike light is nothing more than a compact flashlight, they have large circular beam patterns that require you to aim the light far too low to keep from blinding oncoming riders, pedestrians or traffic.


EFFICIENCY

The efficient use of lumens means can use less power to get the same equivalent brightness and width as a traditional bike light.  This means longer run times, longer rides, and more confidence you won’t be running out of juice at the worst moment. We encourage you to check out our videos and comparisons if you aren’t convinced yet!

    I recently did an organized night ride here in Utah. Over 1200 people attended. Waiting at the start line I was able to compare my Outbound Light to those around me. I was amazed at the difference! It made me understand why a lot of people (me included) got a little nervous for riding at night – you can’t really see what’s going on around you. The brightness with the wide beam pattern had me feeling totally comfortable on the bike. Being able to see what’s going around me and my relation to it with speed and distance gave me so much confidence in my ride. I was able to actually enjoy the ride instead of being on edge the whole time wondering what I couldn’t see and if I was going to hit anything! Loved it!
    My light was heads and shoulders above every other light I compared it to that night – and there hundreds of ‘direct comparisons’ as I made my way through the ride that night.

    I’d like to test the Flux series from Specialized to make certain, but I hadn’t gotten much response from them as to if they are even still being made, so I went with the OL Road Edition. This is an extremely good light which I would put up against anyone, even the offerings from Europe, who have been doing asymmetrical lights for years and years. There are some things I’d recommend, being a recumbent rider. If Matt tested these for bents, he might not have had the power cord come out the side, at least not the drive side of the lamp. Noting the lamp is placed at the end of a long boom on a recumbent, there might be a more secure fastener, (like B&M’s), than a rubber strap which must be stretched more tightly than on an upright, because of the vibrations at the end of that boom. It has to be repositioned often. Stretching that rubber strap to accommodate may jeopardize its life, especially with long exposure to the sun. Also, I’d recommend a true, on/off flash for daytime use, rather than the barely visible “pulse” function, to really grab motorists’ attention. Truly, they ain’t looking for us, and will use any excuse to ignore us.

    Former Dinotte user (verified owner)

    I am replacing my Dinotte headlights with 2 Outbound Road lights.
    I have one Outbound Road light on the handlebars and one Outbound Road on my helmet.
    On the plus side I highly recommend the Outbound Road over Dinotte because the optics/beam pattern
    is far more usable.
    On the minus side, my helmet light mount has a short barrel which the strap mount fits around. I had to
    cut off part of the Outbound ridged rubber shim to be able to pass the rubber strap around the barrel.
    I thought about converting to the GoPro mount but I would have to remove the Air Scoop to install the
    GoPro adapter. I recommend a redesigned Air Scoop with a built-in GoPro adapter instead of a strap
    mount. The second minus is the extension cord is rather short. Depending on where I place the
    the helmet light battery, I have to use two extension cords to reach.
