    CygoLite Expilion 700 USB vs. NiteRider 650

    Anyone here used both the CygoLite Expilion 700 and the NiteRider 650? Trying to decide between both for trail use and some road use.

    Bump. Both of these came up in my hunt for a cordless headlamp.

    The main advantage to the Cygolite would be that there is a removable battery so you could purchase spare batteries and swap out on the trail as needed for longer rides. The Cygolite is also 30 grams lighter.

    Thanks for the comment. I ended up buying the NiteRider. I've been extremely happy with it and the battery is removable--if use can use a screw driver. As for weight, that's interesting the CygoLite is a bit lighter. Weight definitely matters after a long night ride.

    All and all, I've like my NiteRider and have about 15 full cycles (battery cycles) on it without fail.

    The Niterider definitely wins in the fashion department and looks a little more complete but I'll have to head to REI and play with both of them to see which I like.

    Thanks for the tip, sucks that I've got a few gift certificates that I won in a local contest that dont get in for another week or so. I was just thinking earlier about how all the holiday sales will be piling up soon.
