    Strength:

    Nice product 15watt spot works super
    easy to set up

    Weakness:

    MR-11 light 6 volts 2.5 amp equals 15watts hard to find other then from Norco

    Looking to find a cheaper source for the bulb

    This is the perfect setup . You really dont need more then this at least i dont. The battery lasts 1hr 40 minutes (uses 6volt 5amphr battery) I purchased a 6v 7amp hr battery and now get over 2.5 hrs ....This light cannot be beat for the 129.00cdn i paid with tax... Nobody can touch this light and with the battery im unstopable

    Strength:

    I ride with KAAB and this light like he said rocks

    Weakness:

    Hard to find 15watt bulb

    This lite is wicked works super, average 1.40hrs of bright white lite. I also bought a single bar beam 10watt flood.
    If you havent tried night riding its a blast
    Do yourself a favor and buy a BLT Blitz Helmet light.
    Best light for the price ...
    P.s. if you need more run time buy a 6volt 7amp hour battery for around 25cdn dollars and you should get around 2.5 hrs of light ...YEHAWWWWW

    Gotta have 5 for both . This cannot be beat!

    Strength:

    Extremely light weight, compact and very durable, CNC Aluminum light housing. Well built, 1hr 45 min. burn time 7.2 volt Ni-Mh battery. Over volts the 6 watt lamp for incredible white light.

    Weakness:

    None

    Simply amazing, wow, and incredible is how I would rate the new BLT Terminator. My first ride just blew me away at how bright this puppy is.

    A little history first. I have been mountain biking since 1988 and bought a Nitesun Endurance light set that same year. This was a 10 watt and 20 watt 12 volt 5.0 A/hr SLA set up which was the hot ticket back then. What impressed me was the beam angle, light output and burn time the Nitesun offered. What didn't impress me was the price and weight, the battery alone weighed over 4.5 lbs. I bought the helmet mount kit and mounted the lights, which were welded on to one plate, to the top of my helmet. This set up added over half a pound to my helmet which was not the greatest but offered 30 watts anywhere I wanted it.

    I ride twice a week in the Victoria area with a bunch of guys with various light sets. There are NiteRider's, Nite Hawk's, VistaLite's, my old Nitesun's and some BLT's. In my opinion, beam angle and light output are paramount in off road riding at night. Many manufacturers have built some nice systems like MR-11 bulbs, composite construction and Ni-Mh battery packs. What they have missing is a usable beam angle.

    About a month ago I took my BLT Terminator out on our ride. When it was time to turn on the lights I was dumbfounded at how much pure white light streamed out of this tiny light. All the other guys compared their lights with my Terminator and none could match it, they were all yellow with narrower beam angles. Some where downright pathetic in comparison. Even my beloved Nitesun's (which I had mounted on my handle bars) were in the shadows of the Terminator. The only exceptions were the guys with BLT Blitz lights which weren't as bright but had the same beam angle. What I couldn't believe was the white hot light combined with the best beam angle I've seen in such a small package. One guy who bought a very expensive VistaLight Ni-Mh set was embarrassed by the Terminator and cursed his lights.

    I didn't manage to drain the battery as I was using the bar lights alone some of the time and both some of the time. Overall, the BLT Terminator is the best set up I've seen and should be a real winner for BLT.

    Now, if you guys made a bar mount of this light with let's say a 9.0 A/hr Ni-Mh bottle battery, combined with the Terminator helmet light, you would own the night.

    Strength:

    Simple, durable machined aluminum, solid helmet mount, interchangable bulb wattages

    Weakness:

    no beam pattern focus

    This is a well made durable system that can take the pounding of some good crashes without a wimper. the helmet attachment is versatile and rock solid and the beam is pretty clean. All in all a great system.

    Strength:

    it's a helmet light, with bright long narrow beam

    Weakness:

    6volt bulbs/batteries/chargers not as common as 12v, battery is heavy, coiled cable tugs at my head when it catches on camelbak, only one wattage setting

    Shines pretty bright, lasts a good amount of time. night riding is a must, and no better way than with a helmet light. if u can get one cheap go for it, u wont regret it.
    handlebar light complements it well.

    Strength:

    Easy to maintain, switch is easy to locate, spot the light were you want to go. Good burn time.

    Weakness:

    Somewhat heavy

    This is a good little light. It gives you a good entry level pricepoint. It is versitile you can use it for hiking or crosscounty sking. You can aim light were you want to go. Good for finding side trails. Loves to be charged so you cant overcharge. Same idea as a car batt always charge it.

    Strength:

    Very powerful and strong aluminum case. The light is very lite.

    Weakness:

    cost way to much. The battery is a bit weird and heavy to ride with at first but you get used to it

    Helmet mounted lights are far better than handle lights because they go where you look and can shine in any place. This light has tons of power and works very well on trails. The battery is also good because it will last longer and you can charge it whenever.
