    Bright light for about $200

    Is there any lights that will make the trail really bright for about $200? I have absolutely no idea. I bought a light from a store and it was really crappy, no better then putting a flashlight on my helmet. It was one of the night hawk k2 emitter. Any know a helmet light that I could get online? Thanks so much!

    ...sorry, not laughing at you but with you. I bought one of those too hoping to get the claimed 700lm.. One of my Cree P-4 torches puts out more light than the Nitehawk k-2 did. Anyway I returned it. I was so mad I wrote the manufacture and asked them why they claimed it was 700lm. They wrote me back saying that different people use different standards for measuring light...blah, blah, blah,....etc... I did do a review, it is probably still in the review section somewhere.

    For singletrack 400L should be just adequate, 500L is better and anything more is very nice. Just make sure that they are real lumens and not some marketing hype.

    You don't say what your intended use is. If you're thrashing downhill then a lot of lumens would be nice, but if you're a moderate rider I've used the Dinotte 200L and it's fine. It's crazy small, and costs $159. As the name implies, it 'only' puts out 200 lumens, but that's plenty bright for riding fire roads at moderate speeds, at least in my opinion.

    I'm intrigued by the Airbike Geoman mentions. Has anybody else used it?
    To the troll mobile, away...

    I almost forgot about the Kentro. I do remember that the beam shots were impressive but that was a while back. I really like that they added a wired remote for easier mode changes on the bar. Looks like they lowered their prices too since I last checked. Unfortunately when I try to pull up the Litemania website half the stuff I cannot read ( Korean web site ? ).

    Geoman would you recommend going with 1 900 on the helmet or 2 200's..helmet and one on bars? Do you have any links to what these look like using them on a trail. Very interested in these after reading your post.

    Enough Light ??? Dry ground 300Lumens is fine for me full speed ahead, wet darm muddy ground which doesn't give a good return, 1000lumens isn't enough for full speed.

    I sent one by clicking on your name and then under send e-mail. I sent it last week. I was just asking about pricing on one of the lights that were mentioned above. My main question that I asked earlier in this thread is this......

    Would you recommend going with 1 900 on the helmet or 2 200's..helmet and one on bars? Do you have any links to what these look like using them on a trail. Very interested in these after reading your post.

    I believe I was asking pricing on the Niteflux photon.....I think. You mentioned different pricing for MTBR.

    Do Niteflux still make the photon?
    They stopped selling them in the UK as far as I can see. A bit outdated now.

    Torchy,
    You know you might want to check the date on the last post before you comment on a thread. I doubt many people really care to rehash what they talked about in June of 2009. If a thread lies dormant for more than 6 months I think it fair to say it's dead and time to move on or start a new thread if you have something new and interesting to talk about. ...
    ....Now how about that triple XML Fluxient! I hear there's some guy on e-bay selling them for $50....you know anything about that???? ....
