Got this to outfit a new bike. I really like the new mounting system (I got the GoPro mount adaptor) and the fact that I don't have a battery pack and cable cluttering up things. The brightness, lighting pattern, and run time are still excellent.
Light works good, not great battery life but came dirty which was annoying.
I had a night rider light for years, and I recently moved to a place where the roads are awful. I needed a light that much better illuminates the road on my commute. This light is amazing! So bright, and I love that it illuminates right below me and to the sides, as well as far in front of me. I keep turning around thinking there's a car behind me because my path is so well lit!
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.
