I'm going to be getting either a Stryker or Stryker Pro as my only "light-the-path" headlight, which will go on the bars. I already use a L&M Vis 360 on my helmet, which is used to "be seen" and doesn't really do anything to light up the ground in front of you when its dark. Also I won't be doing any trails with this setup, this would only be used on roads.
I e-mailed Shannon asking about the beam pattern difference between the Stryker and Stryker Pro, he replied:
"The Strykr has a very wide angle with that reflector installed (it also comes with a spot reflector) while the Strykr Pro has a combination reflector that is half spot/half wide both of them are 700 lumen systems. Brightness is the same but the beam pattern is different."
So for those of you with both lights, which do you think would be better for riding on roads when its totally dark? Either light will be an upgrade from my MagicShine, but I'm just wondering which would be better for my uses, or if there would be no significant difference between the Stryker and Stryker Pro. Like I said, it won't be going on my helmet so the weight/size is not an issue.
