Description:

The V4 Adventure set includes both helmet lights and bar lights.

Light Meter Measurements:

Lux measurements were 34 Lux for the wider bar light and 33 Lux for the helmet light. This is fairly accurate with its 400 lumen claims. This

Strengths:
  • ultra light system perfect for racers
  • updated switch and dim modes are a nice addition.
  • slick helmet mount system works very well.
  • excellent charging station and car adapter accessory
  • solid and weatherproof carrying case
  • tail light option and headband are a great addition
  • use of lipo batteries offer best light output and run time for the weight
Weaknesses:
  • The 2011 lights use the same Cree XRE emitters of last year and are not as bright as the current crop of lights.
  • The bar light needs to be wider.
  • The bar light uses zip ties for mounting
  • New fancy case has no handle.
Bottom Line:

This was fantastic light set last year only held back by a narrow bar light beam pattern. This year though these XRE emitters show their age as they are outclassed by the new crop of Cree XPG powered lights.

It's still a good lightweight XC racer set but we'll have to knock the rating a couple ticks just because the LEDs were not updated.
