    I used to rate the single fenix as a great bang for buck night riding torch, but compared to the latest offerings it simply pales into insignificance. The Hope vision 4 from 2008 was well received at the time, with plenty of spread and light output, with a fantastic finish, but expensive at 299.

    The Cree XM-L T6 was a huge development, vast light and long throw, to the trail for less than 25, no reason to splash out on expensive lights.

    The Solar Storm X2 ups the ante again and floods the entire trail with a crisp pure white. Even on medium its impressive. Great run time, compact, and a wide spread. I honestly can't see a reason to buy anything else. Run one on the helmet and paired together its off the charts, and the pictures don't do it justice either
