Strength:

Light small and compact easy to use and set up with out any special tools required all products for set up are included in the kit. Easy to charge and battery life is as promoted and run times are great for any of the weekend rides we do.

Weakness:

Locating rubber strap needs to be removed after every ride

Would reccommend to anyone

Strength:

A light, tough and long-burning set. Ample light for fast trail-riding. Allthough one could always wish for more light, at this price the set is unbeatable.

And great customer service. The AC-converter for the charger stopped working, and they offered to send a new one the same day. No questions asked.

Weakness:

None.

Great light at a great price!

Strength:

So light! Battery and light mounted on helmet so no cords trailing into backpack. All comes in nice carry pouches with batteries having neoprene pouches to protect them in use. Really light (again!) on my helmet - could hardly feel that they were on my head. Very bright too!

Weakness:

Can't think of any

Used an HID set and really noticed how much faster I could go at night. Back out the next week with the old Vistalites and I was slower and all over the place. Decided to get some lighter version lights as was about to do the Scott 24hr. Bike shop had a couple of models with 3 LEDs and one 3 hr battery included. Ayup MTB set has 4 LED's and 2 x 3hr and a 6hr li-polymer battery included for the same price. Not much thought required for that decision! Raced the Scott and my lap times at night were only a couple of minutes slower (over a 45-50min lap) at night - Wow. Very happy with purchase and very impressed with the quality and feel of the gear - also to clean - chuck in the sink and scrub (not yet been brave enough, but they reckon the lights work underwater for fresh water!) Definitely a great light for the enduro racer and or commuter weight weenie

Similar Products Used: HID - older version quite heavy - sore neck after a 3 hr race.
Vistalites - look like a dim torch in comparison.

Strength:

light, relatively inexpensive, waaay bright, simple, good design

Weakness:

would be nice if it also had a flashing mode for commuting

great product, waaay bright for commuting on trails, regularly dazzle cars and cyclist coming in opposite direction (ha ha ha). Soo much better value than overpriced American kit - which generally have shorter burn time & heavier batteries.
Customer service from these guys is great to. Received my road kit within a few days of ordering.
Great product.

Strength:

Excellent service from Ayup.
Excellent price. You get a set of lights for the helmet and another set for the handlebars for $440.
Batteries are long lasting a small.
A very neat package that includes a car cigarette lighter battery charger.
Lights look good and work well.

Weakness:

Nil

These are an excellent value for money light. They provide good light for the job and I like the way each light can be adjusted separately. You could spend a lot more and get better lights but for me there is a point of diminishing return.
The lights look good and are tough. For Australians, they are Australian made and should be supported because they are a good product.

John Barnes   Cross Country Rider [Feb 03, 2008]
Strength:

Long lasting batteries and very good light

Weakness:

Really great lights but expect £60 -£80 import duty/ tax / admin fees when you import to the UK!

The UK tax kills the cost as you can find better lights cheaper!

Steve   Cross Country Rider [Apr 09, 2008]
Strength:

Bright lights, great run time, light set up, cheaper than other two light systems, independently adjustable beams (x2 on helmet and bar)

Weakness:

Helmet mount should be mounted permanently. Handle bar mount rotates around bar if set up perfectly strait.

These are awesome lights. That is all I can really say about these lights. Great value, great run time, great amount of light and light use. All around awesome lights. I am really looking forward to racing with these.

Matt   Cross Country Rider [Mar 30, 2008]
Strength:

The ayups throw out an excellent amount of light. The genereous kit includes lots of mounts, cable ties, extension leads, spacers. The included batteries are light and small and deliver the stated burn times as a minimum. The lights and batteries stay cool during a ride. The charger can charge two batteries at once from either a 12v cig plug or from mains power.

Being able to aim each side of each pair of lights allows the spread of the beam to be adjusted very well. I went with narrow and intermediate lenses and am happy with this choice.

Weakness:

They've become more expensive, but are still are great value kit.

Light bright lights!

Gavin Dunlop   Cross Country Rider [Feb 17, 2008]
Strength:

Low weight, flexible & secure mounting system (just use spare mountings supplied to move between bikes and helmets), Comes with multiple batteries with fast charge time, (charger does 2 batteries at once), Waterproof Great customer service. Great range of colours and good looking set up.
Above all - fantastic levels of bright white light

Weakness:

None

I bought the 08 kith with the new Cree lights which are apparently 20% brighter than the older models tested in the MTBR shootout. I got the narrow for my helmet and intermediate for the bars.
They were delivered overnight for a very reasonable p&p. I use them for on and offroad comutting all year round.
I think the bike mounting is great, very solid and the kit comes with extra mountings so you can transfer lights very easily between any other bike or helmet with a mounting. (And a headband will be available soon increasing their flexibility and saving me money on a new headtorch).
The light output is sensational, both quantity and quality. Bright white light makes colours stand out. No hot spots and a great distribution. I've not had a head / bar combo before and it is a real improvement. I'll never need more light on a bicycle.
Not cheap but still great value considering performance, flexibility, kit contents and life expectancy. The customer service was great(I asked a couple of questions by email which were answered immediatly) and this and other feedback would indicate support will be good should I ever need it. (I've been known to stack)
So far as bottom line goes, I've had some really good bike bits over the years but this is the first time I've been inspired to sing their praises to the world.
