    Helmet Mounted Companion for my ARC

    I'm looking for a helmet mounted light that I can use in conjunction with my ARC.
    Basically, I'd like the following:
    - latest generation LED (Cree or Seoul) for efficiency and output
    - long distance pencil beam projection
    - min run time of 3 hrs
    - price, within reason
    - light weight
    Does anything currently fit this description or should I just wait.
    Really won't need it til Aug when I have a 24 hr race coming up.
    Thanks all,
    Lenny

    The new Dinotte spot sounds like it would fit the bill. At 200 Lumens, it will be among the brightest single engine lights with 2 to 4 Li-Ion cells pushing it.

    However if it were me, I would put the brighter more powerful light on your head and put a wider beam Dinotte on the bars. To me a pencil thin light is useless. On a bike, I don't need to see 100 yds away. I want a good sphere of light in my immediate area though. You need enough throw to see what's coming ahead at maybe 20mph (<50 ft) but that's about it. Any more throw is a waste.

    And as the others have said, more and more stuff is coming out all the time. I'm sure all the light companies are targeting the August time frame for having the new lights out. So the longer you can wait the better.
