    Recs for a new light bar and/or helmet mount

    I'm looking to upgrade my light so I can actually ride at night, I have an old nite rider that was mainly for riding at dusk/emergencies. I've been over the 2013 MTBR Lights Shootout, but still not sure what to get. I want to ride about 4 hours at night once a week.

    On technical single-track and descents is it best to have a bar mount or helmet mount or both? I want something bright, budget is around 500.

    Tonka,

    I just purchased a Dual XML-3 set-up from Dinotte Lighting.I really picked them based on the reviews here, 2013 MTBR light shoot-out, plus the fact it was made in USA.

    You could afford to go with the Dual set-up like me and still have some budget to spare. The dual set-up will allow one light on the bars and one light on the helmet.

    Together thats about 2,000 Lumens....and accoring to the shoot-out they actually measure 1200 giving you 2400 Lumens.

    If you can wait till Sunday Ill update with a report from Saturday night.
