    Mtbr Bike Lights Shootout - over 50 bike lights reviewed, photographed and measured here.

  • What’s unique about the lights is a very small head unit that houses two of the best LEDs available, the Cree XM-L. The light switch is on the back of the light with good action and a small blue led that lights up when the light is on. When the battery is at low level, the indicator light will flash four times and the light will switch to low mode to give the rider thirty minutes of final run time. Continue reading →

    Strengths:    Super light, Super bright, Perfect beam pattern, Very durable, Looks great. Uses GoPro mounting systems.

    Weaknesses:    Not a weakness at all but the housing gets a little warm on steep, slower climbs on HIGH but automatically switches to LOW if it gets too warm. LOW beam is more than sufficient for climbing.

    Bottom Line:   
    This light is made by fast riders for fast riders. You don't even notice this thing on your head and turns night into day. High VIS cables have a rubber grommet in the connection to the battery pack that only go together one way and snap together (but don't lock) making a water tight connection. So if you accidently catch some brush or tree branch the cable will disconnect not break, leaving you stranded in the dark. It uses the mounting system used by GoPro cameras so you can run GoPro by day and TrailTorch by night without the hassle of switching mounts. I also use it with a adhesive mount on my dirt bike helmet. The speed of moto is at times much faster than pedaling and this light has no problem lighting the trail far enough ahead. Bottom line is you can't out ride this light, but its fun to try.

    Strengths:    Lightweight, very bright, easy to adjust, simple buttons/modes

    Weaknesses:    Battery cord ends can be a little finicky

    Bottom Line:   
    This headlamp throws some serious light, even the 'low' setting is brighter than most other lights. Just one of these can completely drown out the rider in front of you, even if they are using 2-3 bright lights. The Trailtorch is a lighter weight than most riding lights and mounts very low to the helmet, so there isn't any 'bobble' sensation, riding with one is barely noticeable. Ridden with the light for about a year and never experienced any problems with it. Plugging the battery cord into the light takes some practice, but isn't too difficult once you get the hang of it.

    Strengths:    Lightweight and well made. Extremely bright! Great beam pattern.

    Weaknesses:    Could use bar mount

    Bottom Line:   
    As a shop owner, I get all kinds of equipment to test. It is pretty evident what products are made well and what products are not made well. This light is beautiful. On a recent ride, I was driving down a major street at 6am and cars coming the other way were flicking their high beams at me. As they drove by the other direction, I could see them staring at me in disbelief. Obviously they couldn't believe a bike light could be so bright. Light head is a work of art in design and build. It is light enough, that with a helmet mount, you don't even notice it up there. Beam is long, wide, and even. Cables are high quality and the connector snap together and disconnect positively. Battery may be a little rough looking, but as a fellow fabricator myself, I can can attest to the fact that two layers of industrial heatshrink and sealant have made it bomb proof. From what I understand, they are currently working on a more pleasing looking packaging. Great light that I would highly recommend.

    Strengths:    weight, brightness, clarity

    Weaknesses:    i tend to push things and messed up the connections playing jimi hendrix behind my head guitar, called them, within 24 hours new battery end at my door, only questions asked, what can we do to improve the product, the connection, gave my 2 cents, and they didn't make me feel like a dunce...

    Bottom Line:   
    with my ageing eyes, it get tougher every year. this year, with the torch light on my helmet and my lupine tesla (used to be on the helmet) on the bar...it's like daylight. I feel guilty with this set riding with others..

    Strengths:    Wicked light output. This thing shoots a beam so far down the trail I'll never worry about crashing my $4k carbon bike on some unforeseen object in the trail. Great battery life for 1800 lumen output light. Got the thing out of the box and realized the mount is compatible with the mounts that came with my GOPRO camera. Battery pack looks like military grade. Yellow cables are easy to see in low light.

    Weaknesses:    Haven't noticed any yet.

    Bottom Line:   
    If you ride fast and love the technical descents in the dark you need this light.

    Made in the USA.
