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. We encourage you to check out our videos and comparisons if you aren’t convinced yet!

Very impressed with this light. Very good coverage, long lasting, and decently light for the light duration that you get.

My $.02, I would rather have some extra functionality than a cool carrying case. I can't think of a single reason why I would need a very nice padded and zippered carrying case after I install the light on my bike. It's a very nice case, but I don't see any need for it. I would rather have things like BLE and ANT lighting profiles so that it would work with my bike computer, or maybe a decrease in price and nice cardboard packaging.

Still very happy with the lights though.

This light is perfect for my pre-dawn and post-dusk commutes! It has a big and bright beam and it covers the sides of the road well. In traffic (NYC) cars see me way better and give me more respect than with a blinker. Very happy with this purchase.

Road Edition light purchased by my partner for me a few weeks ago. Have now gotten a few hundred miles on it and have some earlyish thoughts.

Build Quality: overall, excellent. The fasteners are super-snug--you really need some muscle to disconnect the battery, but you'll figure it out. I appreciate that fact, as it rains here a lot and I have confidence that the water is a non-issue. Certainly has been so far. Though lightweight, the lamp housing is plenty rugged. I've ridden over some massive ruts and potholes and no problems at all. It remains completely silent in operation. The battery itself is super-solid, but not terribly heavy.

Mounts: I love the battery mount system. It is basically a stretchy velcro-based setup with a big, sturdy buckle. I put mine on the front of the underside of the top tube and it stays where I put it. The lamp mount is one of the more modern designs, with a big, wide, sturdy, elastic fastener that you pull as tight as you need depending on what diameter you are mounting on. It should fit any diameter bar you can throw at it. Mine are aero bars and it fits, no problem at all. Once snug, it stays where I put it. If you don't fasten it snugly, then like all such mounts, when you hit a big bump, it will tend to tip teh light down and you will have to readjust it, so just figure out how tight it needs to be to stay in one place. I prefer this type of mount, because it allows me to mount the light just about anywhere, unlike the older, screw-in mounts such as on older Cygolites and such. Those are way more limited in where you can mount, which is a hassle now, as there are so many different types of bars on the market now.

Beam Pattern: World-class. Simply the best I have seen. I did look at one of teh German STVZO lights that gets a lot of attention before buying, but the beam pattern on the Road Edition is far superior in my estimation. It is super-wide. Crazy wide. The beam in the immediate 10 or 15 feet in front of the bike is v...

I don't know how I was riding at night before this light, what a game changer!
The beam is incredible, the mount is sturdy and never wobbles out of place on rough terrain, the battery life is lengthy. Overall, it's made night/dark rides 100x more enjoyable.

Keep up the amazing work, can't wait for a tail light!

I've happily used a Light & Motion light for the past few years, but I wanted the cutoff line and better beam spread the OL light offers. Now that the holidays are over, I've been able to do two night time rides with the road light - one on gravel and one on road. Even after these two 2-hour rides, the battery indicator is still showing full from my initial charge, including a couple of weeks in storage. I had plenty of light in the low to medium settings, and the "be seen" flash-mode is handy for the pre-dark portion of my rides. The battery pack isn't very large; it's similar in size to those used by other lights. It goes on/off easily & quickly and stayed in place. Even though it overlapped an exposed rear brake cable, it didn't interfere with braking at all.
If there's any weakness, it would be the light mount. I've found I have to cinch it as tight as possible or the light would drift up or down slightly over time, maybe due in part to some bad winter roads, maybe due to me doing the initial aiming in daylight before I started the ride. That was with a conventional round handlebar. With the oval/aero "all-in-one" cockpit, the mount worked on paved roads, but on gravel there just isn't enough contact to keep it in place on washboard roads. This isn't really the fault of the light; very few manufacturers have mounts designed for non-round bars. I do have the outfront GoPro adapter to address this, but I haven't put that on yet as it makes it more complicated to swap the light between bikes.
If I had a wishlist, it would be for OL to offer the light head units separately, so I could have a trail light on the gravel bike (with the more permanent outfront mount) and the road light on the road bike. I don't need 2 battery packs like the Ultimate Downhill Package offers.
All in all, a light that makes night rides very comfortable. Good visibility for advanced warning when there's a deer in the road, and bright enough even on medium that my riding partners ...
