SECA Light on POC Trabec Helmet
Just picked up a Light & Motion SECA 1400 light and a POC Trabec helmet.
Given the helmet's hole layout, I'm having a hard time coming up with a mounting postion that I'm happy with.
If I run the velco strap from side to side, it's not long enough to engage the hook and loop sections of the strap. (Is it me, or is the strap layout a bit odd?)
If I run the the strap fore/aft, there's not a big enough flat surface for the mount to sit on, so it tends to rock back and forth.
I'm not against taking a Dremel to my brand new helmet, buuuuut...
Anyone else have this combo?
I just lost the last hour of my life dealing with the same situation.
Did you find a suitable solution?
I have the same helmet, with the new SECA & Stella lights. The mounts are identical - and identically "not ideal" in length/ratio/setup.
I did not find a great solution. I ran the velcro strap in the fore/aft direction and it sort of works. Doesn't seem that secure, and not happy with the position of the light. I don't do many night rides, but if I did, I'd use a different helmet. Post up if you come up with something good.
Initially I had the same mounting problem, although I have a DiNotte XML-3, I suspect the mounting is similar. I had trouble trying to mount the light on the forward part of the helmet. It just didn't seem secure. It would wobble fore and aft. Initially, I thought I would have to mount this on my previous helmet for night rides, but I have found I'm very pleased with this mounting.
With hesitation, I relocated it back thinking this would be funky, but to my surprise, it works great. In fact it seems to have better balance mounted farther back towards the crown of the helmet. I still have full articulation, which is mandatory, because depending on my ride, I'm always adjusting the light up or down.
