    Good job! Review of Bikeray lights

    Basic review of Bikerayusa,com lights models Ray I and Ray II

    I picked these lights up directly from www.bikerayusa.com, Upon placing the order the lights were shipped next day, I was provided an email with tracking information and the light promptly arrived within a week. Inside each box was a hand written card indicating that the light was inspected a tested which is a nice touch IMO





    Lets be honest here these are +- $100 lights, so let's remember I am comparing these to the MS, Gemini, light and go, etc etc..... NOT Lupine

    Manufacture Website http://www.bikeray.com/index.html

    The light comes with a 10 day money back return and carry a 1 year warranty from a US distributor.

    Each light comes with a helmet and headband mounts, plus extension cable.

    Available in different anodized colors red, blue black and silver.

    Build quality looks good, same cables as all the other Chinese built lights.

    My only complaint is the velcro straps seem kind of weak as far as latching together

    Overall I am happy with the lights. I haven't actually been on the trail with them yet but I am pretty sure they will meet my needs especially for the price!


    LEFT RAY I ------------------------ RIGHT RAY II























    beam shot on ceiling aprox distance 12-14ft

    I'd like to see the Ray 3 released. Any outside shots? ceiling bounce is almost useless for our needs

    First, thanks for the nice photos. I have to admit I'm a little confused. The ray1 and ray2 look alike. However in the wall shots the Ray1 has a narrower beam than the Ray2.
    I hate to say this but the heat shrink on that battery does not inspire confidence.
    Also, the web site claims these lights come with P-7 C and D bins...Huh?...Which do you get? The light only uses one emitter.

    As I see it the website leaves much to be desired...just my 2 cents FWIW.

    I'd say from the photo that Ray2 reflector has much more distinctive orange peel texture. That would explain more diffused beam.

    Having not ridden at night for over ten years wanted to get back into it. Since my schedule would limit the season's riding to a minimum I decided to pick up an inexpensive unit for my bar and will the intension of adding a torch later on for the helmet. The ad briefly explained the beam differences between the RayI & II. I ordered mine X-mas Eve and just got mine in the mail today. Here's a link for ordering:

    Now I just have to wait for the trails to dry out.

    Color me skeptical, but...

    1. Title of thread says "Review", but OP posts no actual use info. Instead,

    2. OP's post reads suspiciously like a spam advertisement.

    3. I don't see lumen output stated anywhere.

    A bit harsh.

    OP has been around for a while and has taken the time to post so pictures and info on these lights. Good work.

    Note the review is in english whereas the bikerayusa site is written in chinglish.

    Lumen ratings are stated on the website which he linked to.... they say 900lm but also say C and D bin. A reasonable guess would be the same 550lm as the magicshine.

    Yeah, perhaps a bit harsh. The ad copy just seems suspicious, and I'm paranoid by nature. Apologies if I was out of line.

    Yep....and sadly it comes from someone who appears to have lots of rep. Not only did they dig up a year old thread but really had nothing to add other than to post the spam links ( and most being completely off topic ). Please people, don't dig up old threads that haven't been posted on in over a year. A lot can happen in a year so just start a new thread. We really don't need people commenting on what someone said a year ago. Thanks.
