    Niterider 1200 Pro

    Can anyone tell me what the total weight of the lighthead and helmet mount are for the NiteRider 1200 Pro? Also, has anyone had any experience with this unit?

    I was all set to get this light, but it is a lot of $$$.
    You might check this thread for lights that are 1/6th and 1/3 the price that put out a lot of light.

    I just ordered the Airbike Ever Light SLH P7 - SSC P7 LED - 900 Lumens for a little over $200, way cheaper than the 1200 Pro.

    Many are digging the even cheaper yet Magic Shine for $89.

    Call and ask Nite Rider. My rule is that if it weighs more than 150 grams for just the lighthead, it is getting a bit too heavy for a helmet. Mine weighs around 100 grams and is perfect. A heavy light tends to make the helmet top-heavy and pull my helmet forward onto my forehead more on steep and techy sections. I use the Fox Flux and Giro Xen...and some Specialized one of which I forget the name.- maybe Havoc.
    NR should be able to tell you though I suspect it will weigh more than 150 grams with two full lenses and two reflectors in the same unit. This weight rule is personal preference but others I ride with also prefer lights that are lighter- for the same reasons.
