I've had every light made by outbound, and I still have every light running made by outbound. I just use them on different bikes. I really like the light weight of this one. I use it on gravel and road. I almost always run it on the to lowest settings. Particularly when I'm out in the back country the very lowest setting is more than bright enough. And every time I've corresponded about the difficulty, I've received a prompt and appropriate and even generous response. Superb customer support. Beside a great trail light, it's even great for nighttime photography. My wife put the light on me for wonderful sunset photos in the desert.
Strong and sturdy mount
good light patten with wide visibility
fits well on my gravel bar
This is hands down the best road bike light you can buy. Full stop. There is to my knowledge not another product that gives you this kind of beam pattern and output. And I wouldn’t even want it if there was. We own two luxury cars that have exceptional headlights and these give me the same kind of crisp light with beautifully shaped beam, sharp cutoff, and great lateral vision they do. I personally loved it so much that I got another one and mounted TWO to double the light output for extreme lighting as I bike on super dark roadways. And this is doable because 1. The mount works facing either direction so you can mount one on either side of the main column and 2. The cutoff beam pattern means I can mount two and have the extreme light output without dazzling oncoming bikers or motorists (and yes, I have tested this to ensure even with two it doesn’t blind anyone). The only thing I’ll say that I personally could want is maybe a brighter version for people who want more light. Pipe dream—I’d love for them to have a full beam and dipped beam and then some way to either automatically or manually switch between them just like on a car. The version made for trails is brighter but doesn’t have the cutoff beam pattern so is far less courteous to motorists and other road users. Just buy it. I promise you won’t regret it.
This is the game changer. Not only did we bring the automotive grade cutoff beam pattern to your handlebars, we took it a step further by precisely controlling how much light leaves the light and hits the ground from the front of your tire all the way up to where you are looking. When you read "it's like riding in daylight" this is why.
We are the only USA-based manufacturer of cutoff (also referred to as StVZO) beam pattern bike lights, we also made sure the light has unreal width to light up the ditches and keep the spooky things away.
Rock Solid Mounting
A good light isn’t so good if
it’s bouncing up and down on the bars all the time. That’s why we made a bolt-on clamp mount for Detour so it’s solidly locked to the bar, With a simple shim it adapts from 35mm to 31.8mm handlebars (25.4 and 22mm shims available) and the beam won’t shake around like lights with rubber strap mounts do.
