    DIY Dinotte build Help!!!

    I would like to build a Dinotte style light for trail riding. Desired light output would be between 350-550 lumens. And desired burntime would be 3-4 hours.
    I would like a bar mount with a flood beam.
    I use a cygo-lite mity cross on my helmet and am fairly happy with it. It provides plenty of light and throw for me.
    My question is....what parts should I use to accomplish this? (350-550 lumens in a Dinotte style light.) If you are willing to help fillin the part and where you would buy it.

    Bulb/emitter:
    Optic:
    Driver:
    Switch:
    Connectors:
    Battery and Charger:

    I am totally new to this and am very confused with matching the correct parts together. Everyone's input is very appreciated.

    Thanks a lot in advance..

    About as close to DiNotte size you get with ~500 lumens: Triple XP-E Dinotte Style

    Ktronik has a much cleaner version in kit, or complete form: CNC XPG bike lighting system *now in black*
