it's a sub $100 light. I can put up with a fair bit extra weight and older-school functionality for that amount of light at that value.Cash Hunter - I'm guessing you're the Fenix rep on here?
As soon as I saw the "cycle through lots of modes to get back to the one you want" UI I lost interest. I appreciate that Fenix are a torch company, but the whole fixed torch/ flashlight UI is so 2010 Magicshine. A lot of bike light companies are now innovating with programmable UIs, so you can pick the modes you want and how many, their brightness and how you go between them. I'm disappointed that Fenix didn't do something similar.
it's also going to be competing against a plethora of Magicshine and other Chinese bike lights at a fair bit less than that price point, plus a bunch of all-in-one bike lights (NiteRider, Cygolite? forgot the brand) at the same price or a bit more, with a bunch more features. The bike light market at that price point is incredibly competitive and I just don't see anything that particularly stands out about this light.it's a sub $100 light.

I'm using this light on my road bike. I was a bit concerned that it would blind other cyclists when I'm on the bike path and I wanted to put the light that just goes up in the treetops to some use on the road.ragnar.jensen,
what kind of a lens set-up are you running? The top half looks like a MagicShine Wide Angle lens.
It is a Marwi mount with a MS 900 adapter and a Marwi Mount Kit, that I bought here: LED Bike light partsAlso, the bar mount for the light housing looks very custom, certainly not Magicshine's little rubber band mount. What is it, or how did you put it together?
Androgen, do you realize those beam shots are not from a Fenix light?Looks like a regular bad bike light. I have a Fenix flashlight and it is OK, but i was not blown away with its quality by any means. My old SureFire flashlight is better made. This bike light doesn't seem very different from my flashlight. Nothing special IMO - just a low quality product with a lot of hype - it is insulting to the intelligence frankly.
No concerns, it absorbs very little light. I've had it on for almost three years.Ragnar,
good stuff to be sure. Now I need to source some of that magnifying vinyl here in the U.S.
I'm thinkin' any office supply store would have it.
Ragnar, is there any concern about the vinyl getting too hot?
