Strengths:    Bright white light and the ability to stack the beams. Holds well to the bars and rarely require adjustment, once dialed in. Battery life is awesome.

Weaknesses:    Flood light is not as bright as the other beam nor does it "flood" the trail with light. Would rather have two unrestricted beams.

Bottom Line:   
These lights are awesome. Everyone in the group I ride with says the are blinding.

Strengths:    Long battery life. Rugged battery "sticks" to frame. Light weight system. Beautiful beam. Nice headlamp mounts.

Weaknesses:    Flood light is weak. Doesn't "flood" anything. More like just a "diffused" light with light being bounced back into the headlamp.

Bottom Line:   
3 hour battery life is key for this system. The competition (NR 400 Dual) only has 1:45 battery life.

The Stella 300 wins the dual tourney right here.

The NR 400 Dual's 1:45 mins is nothing. Keep in mind the annoying red warning light comes on at 1:15 mins. With the NR 400 Dual, you'll be stranded on top of the mountain at night with no light left.

The Stella Dual's flood capability is kind of a joke. Does not throw out much light. It almost seems like most of the light bounces back into the bulb with the diffuser lens.

But, the other 150 lumen headlamp with no spot throws a gorgeous beam.

Not sure why Light and Motion did not just go with 2 150 lumen headlamps (no flood).

Construction of light is outstanding. Connectors are watertight and snug.

Battery is a work of art. "Sticks" to top frame. Small and light. Rugged construction.

When it comes to duals, you don't have many choices.

The NR's run time is low, not practical.

Between the 2, the Stella is the way to go.

Once you go Light and Motion, you probably will not want anything else.

I am upgrading to a 100% Light and Motion line of lights on bikes for my entire family. After owning a Light and Motion product, I am now a believer. Lights with outstanding design and construction. And, the highest quality beams in the business!

FYI: I also own several NiteRiders and one Cygolite. L and M takes the cake!

Upgrading Stella 300 Dual

Hey Guys, Are there any mods to increase the light output of the Stella 300 Dual's? I really like tiny form factor and light weight but I'm looking for a bit more light - maybe an LED upgrade? Thanks, MikeRead More »
