    Bruce

    I tried to place an order on the International site and it stated that my delivery address was not valid?? Is this offer not available to Australia?? Can you order a spare 2 cell battery?

    Cheers

    Glowworm, the new lights look excellent. Very much like what I've been building for myself and my mates, only without all the labour and time.

    I can't see if there's a quick release on the helmet mount or not. For adventure racing we find this very handy to switch from headband/ helmet /bar. I'm not a fan of the o-ring system MS uses.

    I'll be recommending your lights on the Adventure racing/ orienteering forum I am on.

    Hey Ozzy, HERE is the link to the QR Mounts. They are the Gloworm Manufacturing - Gloworm Manufacturing site.

    The .co.nz site is only used for NZ now.

    @Offroad - thanks for the recommend, we've adjusted the mounting system to make it easier for that type of transfer. Still not QR on helmet, but the slot on the helmet mount are now a U shape, meaning you can simply slide the the light onto the head strap then secure the top part of the headstrap - done. On a side note, NZ top Adventure Racer, Steve Gurney (plus a couple of other top teams) has been using the X2 for racing etc. He loves it!

    Cheers

    Ahh, what does Gurney know? We met him at Coast-to Coast a couple of years ago.

    How quickly can you transfer the light from helmet to headband?

    I tend to race with a sack of lights- one for my helmet, a second on the bars, a third on the headband, and a spare for teammates whose lights fail. Most of my friends don't have that luxury, and need to transfer at least to headband and helmet in a hurry, often in the dark with numb fingers.

    Glowworm,,,from what you have shown the light does look promising. For those of us here in the US who preorder from you, what will be our option if we have a warranty issue, will Jim at action be willing to take care of us or will we have to have the problem shipped back to you?

    Thanks

    Canīt wait to see more pics and the beamshots! Looks to be one of the most interesting lights for this year. Because even the big brand L. isnīt able to produce a lot of throw in a small lamp.
    I have a diy light with 7 U2-XMLs Powered at 2,05A and the Polymer-Optics on my Handlebar at the moment but the problem is that this amount of light makes you "blind" on areas out of the light.
    On trails I normally reduce the power to about 15Watts from about 44Watts at maximum. The X1 would be great then to get a tight spot were I am looking at.
    Anyway, hope to get my hands on it soon.

    @Bruce: Thumbs up for your development that gives the customer the feeling to be a part of it. :thumbsup:

    EDIT:

    I have an other idea for a mount. Many riders, including me have Gopro mounts on nearly everything. On my frame, helmet, and even a suction cup that can be mounted on Flat surfaces like the rear window of a car to light the area behind the car after a nightride while cleaning the bike or doing repairs.

    You can even find the CAD models on the internet so it wouldnīt be that hard to develop such a mount (I am not able to post links at the moment): search on Google for "CAD Gopro"

    GoPro mounts are solid and common. I like the click-in version for helmet and headband, but the bar mount is a little cumbersome. I also find the Cateye click- mounts are small and light, but less common.

    Running a Gemini titan now and while it works well I am looking for something lighter that mounts lower as my neck is taking a beating. Would I lose anything from going from a larger diameter reflector light to an optic based one? I was considering a xera but this seems to fit the bill and can't beat the intro price

    I also ordered an X1 too...looking forward to having it with my X2 on the bars for TT intervals (aka, 20-25 MPH on the flats)!!!

    X2 weight?
    How many grams is the X2 w/battery? I assume the battery mounts to the helmet too. Just need something to compare. What does the X1 system weigh? Thanks.
  • 11-24-2012

    60g for the head with remote and 125g for the batter= 185-200 grams...
