By incorporating a new high powered LED, the MiNewt.X2s output more than doubles for 2008 to 150 lumens on high and 92 lumens on low! Regulated run times also increase for 2008 to 3:30 on high and 7:00 on low. Put in perspective, the new MiNewt.X2s lumen output on low is greater than the first generation MiNewt on high! Optics are very important to the performance of any lighting system, thats why a Borofloat lens and custom reflector are used in the MiNewt.X2 and other NiteRider LED lighting systems. This combination delivers superior performance levels when compared to traditional glass lens or T.I.R.s. A new titanium finish with an additional clear coat for added protection, faster charge time and tabbed mounting rings for easier handlebar mounting, round out the MiNewt.X2s 2008 features.
