The Niterider 750 sits in a middle of a crowded line of lights with a small lighthead and small battery that provides 1.5 hours of output at a claimed 750 lumens. It does the job pretty well as it has a good beam pattern and is bright enough to be used by itself for trail riding.

The light switch is now on the light head instead of the battery. The battery window is now just a charge status indicator.

It delivers this in a $250 price point. It is pretty competitive but it threatened by a host of new self-contained flashlight lights including the Minewt 600 at 600 lumens for $150.

Specifications:
  • Price: $250.00
  • Claimed Lumens: 750 Lumens
  • Light Head Weight: 95 grams
  • Installed Weight: 250 grams
  • Run Time: 1.5 Hours
  • Measured MTBR Lux: 60 Lux
  • Measured Lumens: 590 Lumens

Mounting:

Bar mounting on the handlebar is performed by rubber bands hooking on to holders on the light head. The light can be aimed and rotated slightly by loosening a mount screw. The battery can be stem mounted. On the helmet, a handlebar 'pipe' can be mounted to the helmet and the light head attaches to that. The battery can go on the helmet but the system is slightly too heavy at about 270 grams complete.

MTBR Light Meter Measurements:

This light claims 750 lumens and we measured 590 lumens in an integrating sphere. That is pretty to close to claimed and is actually better than industry average when matching up to claimed output. On the Mtbr Lux Meter, it measured 60 lux. This is right there with the Exposure Diablo at 59 lux and the Lupine Piko 3 at 63 lux

Light Meter Charts and Comparison Table »

Strengths:
  • Good brightness at $250
  • Good lens optics and good beam pattern
  • Helmet and bar mounts are included with the system
  • Very light at $250 grams
  • Battery can be stem mounted.
Weaknesses:
  • 1.5 hour run time at high is too short
  • Too close in output and run time to the self-contained Minewt $600 at $150.
  • Small light head can get quite hot
Bottom Line:

This a decent light from Niterider that is light with good brightness. Competition is tough though including other lights from the Niterider line like the Minewt 600

The beam pattern is fairly wide and it looks pretty good on our backyard beam pattern below. It's not that strong though and doesn't have a center spot. So as you can see on the trail beam pattern. you can't see very far on that trail with the orange marker at the 100 foot mark and the green marker on the 200 foot mark.
