Using the same design principles that are found in the latest high end automotive LED headlights, the Road Edition brings a sharp cutoff beam pattern with an intense evenly illuminated field of light to make road riding more comfortable, longer lasting, safer, and enjoyable for everyone.
No longer do you have to dim your lights or aim them way down to avoid blinding on-coming traffic or pedestrians. Increase your safety and enjoy the ride longer!

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.
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.
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.

When you stop for a beer and bikers tell you they thought you were a motorcycle when they saw your headlight, you know you have an Outbound.
My original lamp had a loose wire, but I was shipped a replacement the day after I emailed.
I'm a car-free year round bike commuter in Minneapolis. Winter commutes are cold & dark. This light is brighter than many car lights, even at Medium setting. The lensing of this light is amazing: nice wide field of view to the sides and ahead without blinding oncoming cyclists or drivers. Construction of the light is absolutely solid and I really like the external battery pack. Outbound lighting has been fantastic at answering questions about the light. I'm going to be buying more stuff from this company!
I have purchased several bicycle headlights over the years...last year I purchased a Cycle Torch headlight for my Catrike 5.5.9 recumbent trike. It was adequate until I purchased an Outbound Road Edition headlight. What an amazing difference! Now not only can I be seen, now I can see clearly. I am always happy when I can support American made products. Excellent product!
Punched a day like view in the night!
If you are thinking of buying your first light or adding, go with
This light is so so good. I used to run 2 bar lights and a helmet light and just the one Outbound light gives me better lighting than my previous 3 light setup.
Light feels well built and the battery pack strap has a nice rubberized finish to keep it from slipping around in the bike
Very bright, great coverage
I'm really like it. The light is bright look like my car headlights. Some time i wear sunglass to ride at night on the Coyote Creek trail in San Jose too.
On roads I use the medium setting and have no issue seeing the road. The "light blanket" design is something that should be standard for road lights but hardly any do. (The supernova 99 does and the outbound is easily it's equal - I have both).
On bike trails with full power - the light is really bright. Very very nice. And of course I just had to test it at midnight. Very fun.
I used my garage door to set the light angle. This is important. Too low an angle and you have six feet of blinding white light in front of you. Too high and other bikers are not going to compliment you on your super bright light. Get the top of the curtain about 5 or 6 feet high about 10 feet in front and you will really like this light.
