    Hey,

    Both sites are up and running. Not sure about Action LED Lights.......must check with Jim.

    If you continue to have troubles, let me know....also try Amazon, there is def some stock in the US.

    Cheers

    Just got an X2 from Action LED. Was extremely impressed by the customer service, thanks Jim! I haven't been able to test it on the trail yet but it sure lit up my back yard. All of it. Nice job.
    I'm enjoying my childhood way too much to ever give it up.

    I wrote a nice long review a minute ago, the moment i hit quick reply the browser says it could not load and when i hit back its all gone.

    I am writing again but this time its short.

    I got the X2 2 weeks ago directly from Gloworm international website and managed to ride last night after i received the missing extension cable from Vag. Lets just say I m glad that i bought the X2 instead of mj880

    We rode under heavy rain last night, it started to pour down heavily after we rode for an hour and with all those water pouring on the light, I had no problem at all.

    The o-ring mount was very good for me as its simple and easy to mount and release from the handlebar. It will be a shame if this is changed. One thing i would like though is the battery level indicator to be place behind the light instead of on the battery because i keep the battery in my saddle bag.

    Thanks to Vag for his quick response and top notch customer service, anyone thinking of buying the light please go ahead, you cant go wrong with this.

    I've had this light for a couple of weeks now, I would recommend without hesitation.
    Bought through Gloworm international website, customer service was excellent.

    My goal was enough flood and throw to use as a helmet light, without bar lights, use and forget, it met my expectations.

    Riding off road, technical and fast trails, usually wet and rainy, visibility was excellent. The remote switch on the helmet is excellent for climb/descend mode.

    Also use for commuting on low, feel nice and safe!

    I've been searching some time for nice bike lights. Already it's getting earlier dark and when the wintertime kicks in, I just need some good lights for training at night. Not only so I'm able to see where I'm going, but also that other road users are able to see me going.

    First I went through Magicshines 808E, 816E, 872 and 880. Pretty good stuff but then I saw the light: there are more manufacturers

    So I've read the 36 pages (881 messages) on the Gloworm X2 (v1.0 and 2.0), the 5 pages about the Gemini Duo and like a dozen user reviews. I actually learned a lot by reading all that stuff.

    Conclusion? The X2 sounds pretty much exactly like what I've been searching for. Compact design, pretty light weight, water proof, a good mount, nice beam pattern, remote controlled and a affordable price. Big plus are the smart light programs and the quality feedback from Bruce and Vag.

    Good! But where should I get it? I live in the Netherlands.
    Regular options are Glowormlites.com (NZ), Action LED lights (US) and CRG (UK). By ordering in the UK I probably should pay VAT but no other duties. Any thoughts?

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention: Fooh Designs is the EU distributor. Sent them an e-mail.

    On the up side if you can live with a good 150 ft. of wide throw on the helmet you'll have no complaints. Adding to that when helmet mounted you almost don't need a bar mounted light. An X2 on the helmet would make a great one lamp system if you are into that kind of thing.

    With the X2 ( V2 ) on the helmet and the V1 on the bars I had no problems seeing anything into the 150 ft. range. The V2 will reach farther but doesn't give as much detail as a true thrower. Anyway, you'll hear no complaints from me. I love the V2 on the bars and that's where it will stay.



    I have used my V1 and V2 enough to figure out what I do and don't like about them. I wanted to see what others thought or experienced.

    I agree with what Cat-man-do posted up with his observations (aside from the 150ft). For me the usable distance seems shorter. I run the V2 on the helmet at it is much brighter and tends to drown out my V1 on the bars. Is it really that much better or is that something that the optics help out with. I'm just using default factory setups on both. I that I have plenty of light for the most part but would enjoy more throw especially when I start rolling faster.

    Has anyone run the V1 and V2 on the bars with a Y cable? I'm thinking about that and putting my single XML thrower on my head.

    thanks for any comments / feedback.

    I've thought about doing that as well but the X2 doesn't have any led mode indicators. With one lamp going it's not an issue but if you run two on the bars if would be hard to remember "what lamp" is in "what mode"
    If you did decide to run two on the bars ( with Y-cable ) you will need a very good battery to handle the load. A six or eight cell 18650 or 4 ( or 6 ) cell 26650 set-up would be mandatory if you want any kind of decent run time.

    FWIW, Xeccon X-12 on the helmet and Gloworm X2 on the bars is a sweet combo set-up. The X-12 will give you that little extra "Umph" for throw.

    I should also note that Gloworm is coming out with a "thrower" lamp. Should know more details by sometime this week or next.

    Hey,

    You're quite right, we have a distributor in the Netherlands - Fooh.eu....his name is Jaap. We all have distribution in the UK through crgmoto.co.UK, Danny can sort you out with an X2 and any spares.

    Cheers

    I have both the Gloworm X2 version 1 and version 2 and the Version 2 beam is a great improvement. The throw and overall pattern is really good on the version 2. My version 1 which has a more floody beam even with two spot optics, but it is very smooth throughout the beam pattern. I ended up not using my version 1 on the bike at all, I use it strictly mounted to the headband and use it for trail running, hiking, walking the dog, etc. It is very effective at this because of the flood characteristics and smoothness in the beam. When running you don't get a bobbing hotspot bouncing around, you just get a ton of flood that still has decent reach. It sure beats pants off the other runner's lights I see out there at night. They usually have these weak spotty type headlights that are very blue in color.

    So I am glad I bought both a version 1 and 2 of the Gloworm X2 light. On my bike I use the Gloworm X2 version 2 on the helmet and am still very happy with my Lupine Betty bar light which is the 1,750 lumen 22 degree version. They work really nice together.

    Hey All,

    We are about to make an announcement on the X1 (1 x XML LED/2 Cell Battery), but can tell you we have finally confirmed an optic that out throws the X2 (and other lights in the same class as the X1), but this is only the start! We are also working on a reflector

    Finally we are developing and testing super spot optics for the X2 - the expectation is the new optic will really maximise the throw capabilities of the X2.

    Regards

    Yes, it will be compatible with the current 4 cell and other 7.4v batteries.

    Bruce, will the new spot optic and reflector be compatible with the existing X2 hardware?

    Hey

    Yes the new X2 optic will fit the current hardware....it'll slot right in there!

    As for the reflector, this is a project and may not even come to fruition but we will see what we can do

    I have two X2's and use one on the helmet (with 2 spot optics) and the bar has one spot and one flood. The one on the bar doesn't seem very bright compared to the helmet with the 2 spots. So I am thinking about getting another spot optic and run 2 spots on the bar. Anyone doing this?
