    Exposure Maxx-D on road?

    Hi all

    First post here - just want to say great forum and a brilliant goldmine of information! I know this isn't a forum for road cyclists, but it does seem to be the most informed place on the internet when it comes to bike lights, so I hope you don't mind me asking my question here.

    I'm just wondering whether putting an Exposure Maxx-D on my road bike for the coming winter training rides would be overkill? I understand that using it on Maxx setting would be dangerous where there is oncoming traffic, but I'm thinking it could be useful for those darkest, winding lanes when going at high speeds (30mph+). With the remote switch, it would be easy to dim the lights if there are cars/pedestrians.

    And how many lumens does the "low" setting put out (I can't find this information anywhere)? Would this setting be too bright even for road use?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Adjusting the light beam correctly on a bike would prevent blinding oncoming traffic and is more important than how bright a light is.
