First of all, sorry for my English. It is not my native language, nevertheless I will try and do my best.
Thanks to Xeccon and their global lighting exposure project I was lucky to receive two lights from them: The Sogon 900 and Spiker 1211. I was asked to review them.

5) Xeccon Spiker 1211:

As you can see the Sogon 900 is super bright. I think it has great throw and IMO is perfect as a handlebar Light. I think that for the $$ this is definitely great value and a winner.
As for the Spiker 1211- I was not as impressed with it like I was with the Sogon. It is not bright enough compared to my cheaper SSX2. It is probably built better and more durable than the SSX2 and definitely has a much much better battery but IMO not bright enough to use as A helmet Light.
Xeccon is a name you should consider when thinking of buying your next light. This is a brand which has great lights and the prices are right. The batteries on these light are very good too, much much better than those found on the cheap Chinese lights.
They also have very good customer service: I had a problem with my first Sogon and they sent me a new one right away.
For my current rig I use the Sogon on the handlebars and the SSX2 on my lid.
Hope this has helped.
