I think the wider beam is just the fact that the Jet is so bright that you are drawn to the main beam shot, where as the NR is more even, but the outside are is no wider or brighter than the Jets IMO.Low_Rider said:Thanks for that. The Niterider looks as though it has a slightly wider beam, but boy the Jet has some extra grunt!!
Thanks for posting.
EDIT: Ooops, didn't see achesalot's post - great points.
As someone else pointed out...... a reason that the Niterider HID is less bright is that the battery is low. You can see the red led is lit.(indicating a low battery condition) on the niterider.hammerheadbikes said:
I believe you about the Jet. They make quality lights.hammerheadbikes said:I will have to check my battery, it was on the charger long enough
we did a ride last night, there were 3 NR HIDS and a LUME HID
everyone there agreed the Jet was superior
I have 2 L&M ARC HID lights. They're great. I've haven't seen the Jet HID's, but I'm sure that the Jet lights are good. All of their lights are good.royta said:How do the Light & Motion lights fare against the Jet brand? I'm looking at getting one of the ARC lights, maybe even with the Li-Ion battery.
Who sells the most? I assume it's NiteRider. I have a NiMH NiteRider. After riding for years with their products, I'd call them OK. I'll probably switch for my next light, hopefully not for a number of years, when my kids get out of college!hammerheadbikes said:
Wow, that seems like quite a difference. I run NR HIDs helmet + bar mount to get the best of both worlds, but would look for an upgrade the next time one of the bulbs blows out again ($100/each).hammerheadbikes said:
On your last pictures, I saw that the nightrider switch had turned red.hammerheadbikes said:
