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!

The best light that I'm aware of.

I got compliments from pedestrians on the firts ride. This light's beam pattern is perfect for urban environments. It doesn't blind others while illuminating the road ahead extremely well. It is assembled in the USA and looks to be very high quality, which is a big plus.

I did a lot of research looking for a light with a good cut off beam pattern that didn't cost more than my cheap bike. I couldn't find any other options that are comparable for the money. It is an amazing light.

The only flaw I noticed was a superficial scratch on the outside of the lens. It didn't affect the function of the light and should come out with polish.

The only other drawback is that you are forced to buy the battery with the light. Pity this is standard practice for the industry. There's no option to buy the light only. Eventhough a 4 cell 18650 pack is pretty good, I didn't want it.

Superb bike light

I often ride at night so a good light is paramount. I have tried just about everything on the market but, to date, the Outbound Light is the best. I have not really tested battery life but the medium setting provides plenty of light and the claim is 7 hours. It would be nice if a smaller battery (lighter) which could be carried as insurance was available. I am using the under Garmin mount and it works beautifully.

Great light

I picked this up for my e-bike because I felt the one that came with the bike wasn't enough light, especially for the speeds you can get on a e-bike. This is a great light. I really appreciate the cutoff.

User friendly, exceptional lighting, long lasting

I am always made obviously aware the level of the battery so I can make changes to the lighting level on the fly in order to conserve. I really didn't want to make the leap to a dyno light and now not sure I need to for some trips and event coming up. If I have the time I just let it go full and enjoy the light, if I need longer I just dial it down - and extend it into daylight hours for additional visibility. Two thumbs up, 5 stars!

Feel like a car!

One of the biggest issues I have with most lighting systems is the beam shape. I can't see to the sides or ahead enough to feel safe at speed and down unlit park paths. But this light...... Let me tell you, this light....takes a huge step forward in bike safety. Helps that you can light your path and not blind cars and pedestrians thanks to the beam shape. All the advantages of a automotive headlight and the battery pack is pretty light for the amount of juice you get, lasts me about four to six hours.

All in all, I tip my hat to the engineering team that polished this design. Multifunctional mounting, stable electronics, quality components, just everything I want in a light. The price is real steep, but I think this well worth it. I look forward to the next few years of use.

Thanks Outbound
