Industry-Best Customer Support
When I ordered my lights, I paid for faster shipping & put a note on the order that I needed them for a race that coming weekend. Within 20 minutes of placing the order, I got an email stating the order was being shipped. Boom! Plus, I was thrilled with the lights as well, I got the Downhill Package and used them flawlessly for my night laps at the 24 HOGG Race. The Hangover is a great helmet mount option that you don't even feel the weight of, I would recommend using it on a lower power setting to stretch battery life, I ran it down quickly in the "full on" setting. The Trail Edition bar mount provides ample light on the lower modes and I have yet to run it down during an outing. So far these lights do everything these guys say they do, at a great price point! Thanks Matt & Tom!
I have waited through both seasons to review my lights (so I don't know if this review will be marked as verified or not, since the email links I got with my purchase have expired). I wanted to be able to give honest feedback on cold winter riding and battery longevity, since I didn't see any "real" winter reviews.
I must say that I am thoroughly impressed.
I have taken the downhill package out on several multi-hour rides in -30C or colder and they have never failed to pull through (lucky me, unlucky bears). After one year of charging the battery almost daily during the winter (October-May, though I got mine in November 2020) and weekly to biweekly during the summer, there has been no noticeable loss of battery life.
I mostly used the Hangover in higher-speed settings and kept the Trail Edition on continuously in the winter, as the Hangover did run out of battery once (-34C and lasted about 40 mins of continuous use) but I had a cable with me to charge it on the way home (I don't recommend charging cold batteries, though - I had hand warmers with me).
The Trail Edition on its own was bright enough for me to use at night with tinted ski goggles on which was a very pleasant result.
You can see the beam patterns in the pictures that others have taken. In the snow it's like that but looks about twice as bright (to my eyes).
The battery connector is very sturdy and has dealt with the battery coming loose and flying around when my ski pants would grab the velcro or something. I do wish the cable extension came with the product by default, but that's mostly because paying the shipping/duties/etc. cost across the border comes out to more than the cable costs...
The Hangover provides a nice backup to the Trail edition for cornering or checking your surroundings for bears or whatever else might be watching you.
If I ever want more or newer lights for my bike, I can say that Outbound Lighting will be near the top of my list when searching.
My boyfriend has really gotten into mountain biking and wanted a nice set of lights for night rides. He loves them and they are super bright! Shipped fast as well. Very happy!
I've tried many lights over the years in the automotive world from high quality projector retrofits, top of the line aftermarket, to cheap ebay led lights. I've only recently gotten into the bike light industry but these lights use the same tech as some of the higher end automotive lighting focusing on beam patterns and light dispersion. They do an amazing job and build a great light but it comes at a price. You could buy a lot of lights on ebay or Amazon for the cost of one of these but if you're able to afford the price tag, these lights are the best money can buy for your bike.
