Princeton Tec Yukon Extreme Lights

4.33/5 (3 Reviews)
Weight : 419 grams


Product Description

The compact 8-AA remote battery pack is designed to attach to a frame rail or insert into your hydration pack or backpack. Yukon Extreme 's versatility is second to none—it offers users the ability to switch between a piercing high-power Xenon bulb for long-range, high-intensity requirements and three Ultrabright LEDs for when a cyclist needs to be seen or when burn time is more important.

Strengths:    Lightweight, easy helmet fastener, battery pack fits well in my camelbak

Weaknesses:    Battery replacement

Bottom Line:   
Great for my first helmet mount. I was used to using the Sigma Evo on my handlebars when I found this set on Chainlove.com.

The Yukon mounts easily and lasts for the advertised amount of time. I will probably go for a rechargeable unit sometime, but for now, this set works for a helmet mount for me.

Strengths:    light weight. Mount on helment or bars. Take standard AA batteries.

Weaknesses:    A combine mode of lights would be cool

Bottom Line:   
This light make a great inexpensive backup and secondary light to a hardle bar systems. I used it all summer and only change the batteries once to be on the safe side before a 24hr race. I used light as a complement to my 30 watt halogen system. My system broke I decide to replace in it with the switchback 3 because I like the manufactures quality. The light is not powerful enough to be used for full time trail riding. I was fine for conserving power during long slow fireroad climbs or for sunset while trying to get back to the car.

Princeton Tec Yukon Extreme Xenon????

Well I am pretty new to this whole riding at night thing, so bear with me. I have been looking at some of the DIY LED setups, but I just don't have the time between work and school to do that and have it done anytime soon. So I was looking around for a fairly inexpensive light that will hold me ti ... Read More »
