    Bruce,

    When will the GoPro mount be available in the US? I saw a pic from Interbike and would really like to check it out. Thanks!

    New versions of the X1 and X2 should be here in 3-4 weeks.
    Two reasons you may not want to wait. The prices (on our site) are going up about 10% with the new lights, and I'm offering a 10% discount (from the current price) on existing stock. Discount Code MTBR-GLO.

    Wondering if someone can help me, I just received my X2 V3 and I love it, have used it twice, but I think its faulty (unless im doing something wrong) when cycling through the lights power settings it gets stuck on full and then wont turn off. The only way to turn it off is to pull the power pack, then it wont turn on and the only way is to hold the button in for 15 seconds to reset the light.

    After a reset the light works ok again for a few more cycles but then locks again on the highest cycle and wont turn off. I only press the button once to change cycles and I wait a good 10 seconds between presses. I love the light but this is so frustrating

    Rotaholic,

    Sounds like you have a problem. If you got the light from us let me know and we'll get a new one on the way to you. If not, contact who ever you got it from and a replacement light head should be simple.

    Hey thanks for the quick response Jim, I purchased the light here in New Zealand but wasn't sure if it was user error. I will contact the store I got it from for an exchange/warrenty. Thanks again

    Hi all, quick question for those who use this light on different bikes regularly (eg, MTB and Commute, on the same day) Is it possible to replace the pivot screw with a thumbscrew of some type ? it seems to me there must be a quicker/easier way of switching between helmet and bars ?

    No reason you couldn't leave the helmet mount bracket on the helmet and just unscrew the mounting bolt. It might be hard to find a thumb screw with the right thread. (I'll have to check on what that is tomorrow) you could also put the O-ring mount on the light and use a Gemini or Magicshine O-ring type helmet mount but you would lose the low profile of the Gloworm mount.

    Thanks for the swift reply !
    Yes, leaving the mount on the helmet was the plan. I hadn't considered the gemini helmet mount though. The DUO was the alternative to getting the X2, and the mount doesn't look too much more bulky than the X2 native mount.
    Re. the thumbscrew, I haven't got the light in front of me, but I kind of assumed it was just an M4 or M5 bolt - was mainly wondering if the light body would suffer, given that it would be screwed/unscrewed at least 4 times a week, at least during the winter months, and also if the clamping pressure would be sufficient with 'finger tight'.

    Many Thanks, once again.

    Yes, finger tight with a thumb screw would do the job. Your tightening against a couple of O-rings to provide friction. Keep a little grease on the threads and they should be fine as long as your careful and don't get them crossed.

    DIY remote control handlebar mount

    DIY remote control handlebar mount made from BBB Easyfit bicycle bell and 3Mô Dual Lockô Recloseable Fastener . I replaced original velcro hooks on remote control with 3M Dual Lock and the same fastener was used for handlebar mount. Eeasy to do, very nice fit to handlebars, rock solid.
    Bruce, what do you think about such mount as a standard accessory?

    Gloworm Switch Mount

    Gloworm has now come out with a mount for their remote switch. Attaching the flat bottom switch to a round handlebar with the included velcro patches has been a less than perfect solution. This new switch mount zip-ties to your bar to give you a secure, flat surface. There now standard with all Gloworm light or available separately if you need an extra or want one for an older light.
    Find it HERE

    Looks like a nice solution, and glad to see the company continually improving.

    I've had great luck using these velcro tie wraps. Also let's me position/rotate the switch if needed and doesn't leave any adhesive residue/portion on the bar when not in use.

    Gloworm is indeed working on a quick release mount that is compatible with GoPro mounts. I don't have an exact date for availability but it should be soon. Individual brackets will be available to convert current lights. Future head strap will use this quick release bracket. It will also be possible to add a QR bracket to existing head straps.

    That's great Jim, thanks for the response. I thought I'd seen something about this ages ago but thought you might have some licensing issues.
    Glad to hear that it's coming along, and look forward to seeing it.

    Hey lads,

    On my X2's the indicator is stuck on the 20% red mark. And doesnít turn off either?

    Is it possible to reset the battery level circuit? Charging it to full and attempting to drain it to nothing currently

    Regards,

    Hey, have just received your email. You'll need to return it to the retailer from which you brought it. They will warranty it. Any issues, drop me another email and we can sort it out for you. Cheers

    X2 plus triple

    FWIW, I thought I'd try a photo with my new smart phone on tonight's ride. Gloworm X2 is on the bars and a D/X triple Solarstorm clone on the helmet, both on high. Photo didn't turn out as good as I first thought but then again the phone's screen is HD. Not bad though considering I'm not using a tripod.

    Directed toward ActionLED:

    Jim, I've noticed on my last couple rides that ( at least once every ride ) that I will inadvertently enter the "Stepless adjustment" menu while changing modes on the fly. This usually happens when I am riding fast and switching from standard low to high. To do that fast I have to hit the remote button TWICE in order to skip medium. Problem is if you hit the remote button twice VERY QUICKLY the lamp enters the Stepless program mode. Kind of a buzz kill when in a hairy situation. When it happens you have to stop and reset the mode which is very much a buzz kill. I know not to change modes so fast but sometimes I get caught up in the moment. I know that there were some changes to the user interface with the newer model. Do the new versions still work the same way? Have there been any other complaints?

    Going forward I suppose I could try setting my modes ( L-H-M- ...). That might work but if I'm in mid-mode and want high I'm back to double pressing the switch ( slowly ) again and more often than not I like using the mid-mode for general all around riding. ( low I use for slow climbs and yes I use low a lot too ) I'd rather not mess with my mode set-up because I like the current set-up. Sometimes my finger though has a mind of its' own. Would be great if there were some kind of way to lock the stepless feature while riding. Any thoughts?

    Cat,

    I will pass the thought on to Gloworm. I've done that myself occasionally. I assume you know that if you double tap when you start up the light you only have two brightness modes. If you find yourself in programming mode, an easy way out is just to unplug the battery for a moment. It reverts back to how it was.

    Yes, I know Double tap start up for the two mode menu.

    Pulling the plug would be a simple fix but you still have to stop the bike. For people who race perhaps the better option is to use the two mode setting and program the ( press hold ) sub mode to low power for the slow climbs.

    Yes, please pass the idea of a "programming lockout" setting on to Gloworm. With lockout in place the lamp could likely change modes very rapidly just like the earlier editions. If you get any positive feedback on this idea let me know as I'm likely their favorite fanCAt.

    Hi Teppo - it was shipped over a week ago as notified by email. Please check your spam folder.

    Peter - sorry, not sure what went wrong there.

    Thanks for the update. It would be worth checking that the plug adapter that slides on to the charger is pushed in to place with a click so that it is flush with the bottom of the main charger body.

    The new Gloworm Quick Release mounts have arrived. They will be included with all X1's and X2's orders and are available separately HERE. The head straps now use the same mount. They are compatible with the Go-Pro QR brackets. The helmet bracket is designed to me mounted with a velcro strap but there are also adhesive mounts readily available such as HERE.

    What's the difference between the X1 and X2 helmet mounts. It looks like the latter has a wider base?

    Correct. The wider X2 has a wider base so either light is centered over the mounting bracket.

    Recieved my gopro helmet mount bracket.

    From what i understand from action-led website, it says it includes a velcro strap.



    The one i received did not come with any velcro strap. Did i understand wrong?

    update:

    also ordered the Gloworm quick release bracket and right away encountered quality issues.

    the quick release bracket is attached to a modified gopro mount by a screw that goes into a nut. while attaching the quick release mount to the helmet mount bracket the screw came loose and came off. i thought it just needed further tightening but no matter how i tried to screw it in to its nut, it just would not tighten!.

    just decided to glue the assembly which i hope will solve the problem.

    i have not tried to fit my X1 yet to the bracket and hopefully i would not have issues on that aspect.

    also noticed the picture of the gopro mount on the action-led website comes with a washer which i hoped the mount i ordered will come with the washer included.

    as this washer is small and is easy to misplace, i just thought i would not have to bother to look for a replacement since i thought the gopro mount would have the washer included (as pictured).

    Looks like we have some details to work out.
    You should have had a strap for the alloy helmet mount that came with your light. I'll have to see if I have straps to include.
    The washer you are seeing is the larger O-ring of which there are a couple of spares in the small parts bag that comes with the set. You can also use the one off of the alloy mount you are replacing.
    I'll send you a replacement mount for the one with the stripped threads and inspect the ones we have here.

    The washer you are seeing is the larger O-ring of which there are a couple of spares in the small parts bag that comes with the set. You can also use the one off of the alloy mount you are replacing.
    I'll send you a replacement mount for the one with the stripped threads and inspect the ones we have here.
    Thanks

    Anybody else have trouble with the new Gloworm quick release mounts? The large velcro band the Gloworm system uses to fasten the helmet mount to the helmet irritates my head, so I purchased a genuine Gopro vented helmet mount. Sliding the Gloworm quick release into and out of the genuine Gopro mount is a bit of a project. It's difficult enough to nearly defeat the purpose of "quick release". It's more like a friction fit than a slip fit.

    I looked at a number of the ones we have in stock here and they go together well. (though a little silicone spray makes it easier) Being a new product I would be interested if anyone else is having trouble. bapski above did have one with a small bump on the center rib. You might look for that and sand it down.
    Using 2 straps, one on either side, might work better to fasten the mount to your helmet. If you pull the pads out before installing it shouldn't rub on your head. We do also have self-adhesive ones.

    To clarify, the two parts from Action-Led fit together nicely and clip in and out easily. Compatibility of the Gloworm male clip with a genuine Gopro female clip / helmet mount is what I'm having trouble with, but I've only tried the one Gopro mount. I'll see if I can tinker with it to figure it out someday when I'm in the mood.

    Hi Guys
    Could someone confirm the switching off of the X1 or X2 latest models

    to turn off the x1,
    holD the remote switch.
    the light will cycle through SM, then
    it will turn off.

    Does this means that the light will go through the flash mode before turning off. ie your light going from your steady chosen ouput to a flashes then eventually turning off! I hope I have misunderstood this and the light will turn off without flashing like some light do (very annoying to me)

    Also do they have a memory, ie if you are in high and you turn off the light for a few minutes, when you turn it back on would it still be on high or would you be back to what ever your first set mode was?

    Bearing in mind the difference in price between an X1 and X2 with the twin cell battery pack which one would be better choice as an helmet light. Thanks

    You have it right in that the light will cycle through Special Mode and then turn off. What that special mode is depends on which program your in (2 levels or 3) or what you have the special mode programed to be. (you can select from dim, flash, or beacon) The only way to avoid the special mode is to unplug the battery.
    No, the light does not remember which brightness level you where in. It always starts in the first level, which can also be programed to be what ever you want. (Such as Hi-Med-Low or Low, Med, Hi)

    In case you missed it in the XS thread, Gloworm now has a new wide angle optic available.

    We will be including one of these with all Gloworm lights we sell from this point on and have them available for existing owners HERE.
    It does an excellent job of spreading the light horizontally only, not up in the trees were you don't need it. Add one or two of these to customize the light to suit your needs.

    Hi Jim, I am glad to see they have a wide angle which works better than the flood from before. My question is, how would it be running a wide and the spot in the X2? Planning to order and X1 from you soon, so I am trying to decide if running the spot in the X1 on helmet and 2 wides in the X2 on the bars would be better than one spot, one wide in the X2 with the spot in the X1 as well. Have you run any tests with that configuration?
