    Bike Ray III

    I want another light for another bike...

    I have seen the 3 x XPG Bike Ray III

    So do I get that or another P7 MS type light?

    Will the 3 x XPG be more powerful?

    More lumens, probably. Depends on what bin they use and how hard they are driven. Better beam quality, who knows?

    Check out the Light and Go thread. Good reviews from MTBR shootout. They have both XPG and P7 lights.

    The Bike Ray III is really nice, lightweight, has a 20 degree lens for nice flood on the bars. Triple XPG provides longer burntime on the same battery as a P7.

    No worries 9speed. The Bike Ray III lighthead is 130 grams and runs really nicely on the bars with a P7 on the helmet, we have been impressed with this lighthead.

    No worries at all, everyone is entitled to voice their opinions. We understand that many folks are disappointed that this process is taking so long. We take safety very seriously and our position has always been to address issues as they arise and after investigating the battery quality issues we have opted to perform a voluntary recall for the safety of all consumers. Bottomline, it is taking longer than we wanted but it will be a quality product that will be safe and reliable.

    Is this a sign of things to come?

    Wow that looks like a 130 gram triple XP-G paired with a 5.8 Ah German made Open-Light battery, if I had to guess I think run-time on high would be just over 4 hrs 20 mins.

    Run time: Boost 1280 lumens 4.4 hours

    Low 600 lumens 14.4 hours

    Flash 200 lumens 150hours

    No kidding 14 hrs and 600 lumens about how much are you going to ask for these Geoman
    Defiantly got to get one of these

    Geoman, SINCE you asked, there's actually a 12 hr race Saturday that I'm doing but, they'll have light rentals.

    Otherwise, no rush. Sounds like you're expecting some soon :P

    Hey Raku

    We think those manufacturers numbers are a little inflated as usual, we have been testing this lightset for quite sometime. We replaced the 5.0 Ah Chinese battery pack with a 5.8 Ah German Battery Pack (4 very high capacity Panasonic cells ). Our runtime on high was right around 4.5 hours but we think the output is probably closer to 950-1000 lumens. Beam pattern with the stock 20 degree lens is wide and floody, we suggested an easily swapped out 15 degree lens to BikeRay for helmet use, they are very proactive and have a great product. Pricing is yet to be determined but is just around the corner

    Nice, the 12 hour format is excellent, especially in winter. Best of luck and I hope the weather warms up for you. We'll have these available on the site really soon, excellent for barmounting with the stock 20 degree lens.

    @Geoman, correct me if I am wrong - do you intend on carrying BikeRay lights? or were you referring to the new battery pack replacements for Magicshine lights?


    @Bike ray, do you have complete stats for the IV version coming out in March 2011? Will you offer purchase options for "Light Head Only" WITHOUT battery packs?

    I can't wait to see what one of these will do with a 15 degree lens. It will still be floody but 15 degrees is better than 20. Geoman if you start selling these please make an announcement when you have them on your website.

    Hi Chromag, yes we have been working with BikeRay on the Ray III and Ray IV for several months. We have been testing Ray III units since late November.
