The Gemini Xera is interesting. Although it looks like it has Magicshine roots, Chris Lai and his friendly Canadian crew have worked hard to innovate and spec some good lights in the Gemini line. The Xera has a nice, tiny light head and it puts out a good amount of light. It's ideal for the...
The Gemini Duo is ideal for helmet mounting as it it provides a lightweight head, very similar to the Lupine Piko 4. It throws out a nice 1208 Lumen beam pattern for a run time of 1:30.
