    Good job! Vote for the best single track triple lens

    Long time I haven't published news here. And all this time I was looking for better alternatives to CARCLO 10507 triples.

    Let's vote now, I have tree beamshots:
    #1 - classical CREE XP-G2 + CARCLO 10507
    #2 CREE XP-G2 HD + T11 lens
    #3 Nichia NCSW219BT HD + T11 lens.

    For me I like #2 as it has the best near field and overall even beam pattern,, also seems to have a warm color rendition which is good for trail detail. I would pick #3 if deciding on a helmet light at seems to have a bit more punch,, that been said it could just be the appearance of it having a whiter light that is giving me the impression.

    Looking at these again I see some different things. Hard to focus on detail with the scene changing every second. Would of been better to just post the three photos and let us scroll through them.

    Number two looks good for bar use but both #1 and #3 seem to be illuminating the trees with more throw. Hard to say which optic is best because your comparing apples to oranges. ( using different emitters and or different bins ) Just too many variables involved.

    On a side note I didn't know Nichia made LED's that could rival the Cree's.
    Glad to see you're still getting good results with these mini lamps of yours.

    in fact #1 produces as twice less cd as #2 and #3. The record value belongs to #3 with around 12.000cd running on full.

    These are the separate shots:







    Yes, it's too many variables. But let's keep things simple - which light you'd set up on your bar for single track?

    It seems forum doesn't allow posting images from fb. I have all these shots on my fb page -

    For the bars, #2......but from your FB page I like the Carclo lens with the Cree XP-L which is even better.

    If you have a triple optic more designed for helmet use ( more narrow beam pattern ) I'd like to see it.

    at this moment I have only one custom lens - it's called T11 and it provides the same cd/lm rating as CARCLO 10507 but the light distribution is more smooth with a more compact spot and even decade on the edges

    I have a few beamshots of T11 in my fb page (I still have no idea how to post it here)
