Description


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.

Amazing beam pattern!

After trying out the Hangover for some off-road riding and seeing how great that light was, it was time to prep for some nightime commutes and the Road edition is perfect! The beam pattern perfectly illuminates the entire road in front of me WITHOUT blinding other road/trail/pathway users. The hard cutoff at the top of the beam means I can keep the light as bright as needed without having to worry about burning the retinas of oncoming riders - completely essential if you're riding on shared trails and paths.

Battery life has been great so far and it charges up quickly between uses. The five bar battery indicator is super helpful and the adaptive light mode is perfect. The stretchy neoprene/velcro wrap around the battery case gives plenty of options for securing the battery on the bars, frame, in a bag, or wherever.

Stoked to have the combo of the helmet-mounted Hangover with the focused handlebar beam of this - means I can commute home and hit a quick lap on the trails along the way. As expected, stellar build quality again. I'm almost upset that it's spring and the days are getting longer!

Just perfect!

I purchased the OL ROAD EDITION as a recent work assignment change is now allowing me to commute to work since I no longer have a company vehicle. It is a 24 mile (one-way) commute of which the ride home starts at 9pm. I knew my current 325 lumen Joystick was not up to the challenge. I needed a light with sufficient brightness and a battery run time that had plenty in reserve. Also, the cut-off beam pattern was very appealing as part of the commute is in traffic.

Tuesday 3/17 was my first opportunity to commute. The light performed past my expectations. Light distribution was outstanding. The rectangular beam was pleasant adding light more to the sides making bike path corners a breeze. Throw was plenty for the speeds I was riding. Even though it has only been 1 proper ride with the Road Edition light, I’m looking forward to many more night commutes with OL showing me the way. THANKS OL!

Amazing Road Edition

Before purchasing a light, I sent Outbound an email to ask about the best light as a best fit for all ride conditions and received an immediate response with a suggestion. Thanks for the direction and great customer service! My initial impressions during the unboxing of the Road Edition was its size... more compact than I had envisioned, and the quality of all the components is top notch. I especially appreciate the robustness of the stretch silicone wrap mount on the light, and the engineering concept behind the battery case scratch free & soft grip material... pure genius. The battery mount strap is long enough to accommodate any mount situation. Switch functionality is large, easy to navigate, and allows changes on the fly without disrupting the mount configuration. All in all, you can't go wrong with this light. It is obvious the lights are the result of a creative engineering mindset combined with actual users of the product. Congratulations Outbound Lighting, and thank you for offering such an amazing product to the biking community! I have plans to order the Hangover soon. Thank you!

Great light at a great price

I had been searching for an LED light that threw a wide, defined beam with a cutoff, so that it wouldn't blind oncoming traffic. Since there is no US standard regulating bicycle headlights in the same way the Germans do, it was difficult to find a US version that both operated on a battery pack and had a beam with a cutoff pattern. Many of the German top brands were designed for use with E-bikes, or they were too expensive. Overall I would highly recommend, it is a well thought out, engineered product that is very high quality.
