The Lowdown: CandlePower Tech TrailTorch TT3000
For this season, the runtime has been improved to 2:25 and the price has been lowered to $299. Given the incredibly light and bright head unit already on this light, these are very welcome changes indeed.
CandlePower Tech is a group of craftsmen that strive to build some of the brightest and smallest lights around. They believe in very bright helmet lights that have a very big and even beam pattern. With a 100 gram light head with 8 LEDs, the TT3000 is a very powerful little device that is ideal for the helmet but can be mounted on the bars too. The battery is 265 grams so it may need to go on a backpack or jersey pocket.
