A few things to keep in mind though; 1. The battery only lasts about an hour and a half on high. Medium (500 lumens) is sufficient for most riding and will double your time. 2. Wear it on your helmet (accessories included). You'll feel the extra weight on your head, but it's a far more functional mounting location than your bars.
Cons: Spent a minute this morning trying to get it turned off at work. The one button and then hold for so long just doesn't work that well for me. Proprietary charging/connecting cord that is not well keyed, there seems to be a fair chance that you could bend a pin trying to connect it. I hit low battery on the way to work and I couldn't make it home with out the battery dying (I have a 25 minute ride to work).
I don't/won't carry the charging brick around. I wish they had made this one USB charge driven or USB adaptable like the rest of their range (it was a Christmas present, I didn't pick it).
With the quality they built into the light, I wish they would have spent more time thinking about the battery mounting system. The Velcro works ok....at the moment, but I think it will probably not make a year of use. They could have done so much better.
It seems like in the last year or so they have been able to focus the the LED beam where it actually lights up the trail, where before they just looked bright coming at you.
Up to now, I have been using a double beam halogen light, that worked well, but weighed in at 2.5 lbs, mostly the huge battery. Now with this light I get what seems like the same bright light, with maybe a better beam, and a whiter light, and with a 2 Lb loss in weight, all for $200. If you could get that a few years ago, it would have cost you $600. The only drawback is the burn time. It's not bad, but for most of my night rides, I have to conserve the energy by running on the low setting a little more than I would prefer. So while weight is very important to me, I would like to see a little bigger battery, therefore a little longer run time. And I do miss the remote switch I had mounted next to my thumb that my old halogen had. But I do recommend this light..
