Last year this light was called the Baja Designs Stryker Pro and it put out 43 lux on the Mtbr Ambient Light Meter and it was a bit of a disappointment. It was a bit lower than the Baja Stryker even though it shared most of the same components. Well, Baja Designs searched and found the problems and came out with the new and improved Stryker SL. It now leaps up to 74 Lux and matches the output of its sibling now called the Stryker II.

The purpose of the Stryker SL is primarily for helmet mounting as the Stryker II has a huge head. The Stryker SL is a much smaller, sleeker package with more advanced mounting system. It can be used for handlebar mounting as well for folks who prefer smaller system on their bars. In the end, we believe the ideal application for this light is as helmet light to complement a bar mounted Stryker II or the stunning new Double Stryk from Baja.
