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.

Tremendous lights!

The Road light I bought is terrific. It has the horizontal cut-off so lights do not blind oncoming drivers. I strap the battery on to the boom of my tadpole road trike. The light mounts easily on to a mount. Great throw of the light. Several interesting light patterns. What are you waiting for? Buy one!

An outstanding design

An outstanding design. The "cut off line" should be required for all bicycle lights.

I've used the road edition for several years, and hundreds of nighttime rides. The light is reliable, and by far the best bicycle light I've owned.

When I needed a new rubber strap, they sent one immediately.

Excellent light but be careful the bike you use it on.

So I had this light for a season. It outputs great light and long run time. However my only gripe is the strap is too big for the battery pack. You must need a very thick Down tube to have this attached properly. On my Trek Ds 2 the battery pack slides down the tube as I ride so I’ve had to zip tie it on each ride I go on. Which isn’t a huge deal but it is a slight hassle.

Trail Evo: not on par with the trail/road edition

I'm a long-time OL user so I was excited to see a USB-C version with the Trail Evo. It's well built, very bright with a broad an even beam. Unfortunately it has two serious flaws:

1) The beam shape doesn't have the sharp upper edge of my old Trail Edition, so you *will* blind oncoming traffic. Compared to other lights the shape is quite good but it's markedly worse than the trail edition.

2) The mount is very high quality (solid metal) and I appreciate what they tried to do, but it doesn't work well. First, it only works for circular handlebars and my Scott has decidedly square-ish ones. Easy to fix with some rubber strips, but unfortunately that's the smallest problem. Worse, it doesn't allow up/down adjustment of the light (to go to "high beam" mode on a dark path with nobody coming). Last but not least, the klick-in/klick-out mount just doesn't work reliably, I never quite know whether I securely attached the light or whether it's just somewhat wedged into the mount and will fall off.

In summary, I really wanted to like it but for almost all practical purposes I think you're better off getting a standard trail/road edition. (Plus, please make a USB-C version of the trail edition!)

Super happy with Road Light

A tremendous step up from any lights I’ve used in the past. I run it on the lowest setting almost all the time, and I can verify the 12 hour battery life even when in temps around freezing. It’s also really nice not to blind oncoming traffic and pedestrians—I don’t know why more manufacturers don’t offer similar lenses. Great product!
