    Any reason for 2' of Velcro on Nitefighter helmet mount?

    Im moving my BT40S for my bars to my helmet for the first time. I took the included helmet out of the box and saw there's about a foot of Velcro on each side.

    I've never mounted a light to a helmet but assume you just weave the Velcro through the vents and pull it tight. I don't need half the Velcro it has!

    Am I missing something before I cut off a bunch?

    Different helmets have different vent layouts. I actually use most of it on my Giro Feature, but need quite a bit less when I use the light on my MET Parachute.

    Ya that's the thing, make sure you have plenty of strap sticking together and mount is secure. If you don't need all of each strap, then cut down.

    Be advised the bt40s isn't a great helmet light, doesn't have long range throw. But depending on what and how you ride it may work well for you.

    Cut off what you don't need.

    Cut off what you don't need...all of the MS-type helmet mounts are that way.
