    The Tripple Cuboid has had a baby!

    Here's what I've come up with using a another quazzle tripple XPG
    lens is 0.75mm, so no whining about that please

    Weight with the ali clamp is 65grams

    It's not fixed to the clamp at the moment, i may knock up a helmet mount for it...







    Size comparison

    Those double depth fin beds look really ace.

    Pictures don't do justice to just how small that light is. What are the dimensions???

    Cheers Od, i figured if i went skinny on the diameter of the housing then double depth fins were in order..
    Hows this for showing the size? 29mm x 29mm x 36mm

    Awesome job!

    Wished I had a mill to mess around with a chunk of aluminum.

    Just what I thought. It's insanely small like all those Chelboed/Quazzle board lights.
    Thanks for posting up the measurements...

    Thats really nice Goldigger. Mk1 was good but Mk 2 is better IMO

    Mk 3 will be awesome...

    But alu bars would be better for cooling with alu case and clamp, IMO.

    Maybe, but carbon is the king of bling..


    This light will probably end up on the helmet anyway..so no thermal path to the bars

    Cheers Guys..

    Really nice looking light Jay, great proportions.

    I wouldn't bother with a helmet light if I were you, triple xpg with those optics are two floody to make a decent helmet light IMHO. As a helmet light the beam pattern just won't do justice to that beautiful piece of work.

    Bling the bling bars by leaving it there

    Have to agree. I kept my tripe xpe with narrow optics for my helmet light or the triple regina

    Nice job! Just be careful with the alu mount on the carbon bar. You don't want to have the light making gouges in the bar.

    Nice one Goldigger.

    I have just got home so this is the first I have seen of this. It must be nice not to have to try and fit a driver that is bigger than the optic into the housing.

    Thanks Yeti..
    It does make the whole process a bit easier.. just need to knock up the little remote switch for it...
    This one will be getting one of the L333 boards..
    Just tapped the hole and bolted on the clamp.
    Just found some rubber sheet, for the underside of the clamp on ebay for bugger all. Hopefully better than the strips i was using originally, 1.90 delivered http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/rubber-piece-b...item3363c11687

    Very nice mount! Although it is not flexible to different handlebar sizes, if used with a metal handlebar, the light housing can be smaller because the aluminum will act as a heatsink.

    Beautiful! Can I ask how it is for heat dispersion? (I'm mainly asking out of selfishness, as I'm just starting one that's basically two of yours side-by-side with 2-Quazzle 3-up 750mA.)

    I haven't had a chance to wire it up yet, been in the Philippines for the last 3 weeks
    I have one of the Quazzle 1370lumen tripple boards to put in..will see how hot that gets.

    Just noticed that Quazzle has XML boards in the pipeline
