After my last 24 hour race it was an easy decision. Time for some new lights. Racing on a 4 person team meant riding full out. I was able to out ride my lights. So I've been doing lots of research. Do I get a new headlamp or new bar lights. Decisions, decisions.
I would like to keep my systems compatible, Don't want the support crew fumbling with 5 different style batteries and chargers. I'm also not in the mind set to build my own lights. I've seen a few creations and they are pretty cool but not for me.
Well the first debate, LED versus HID. I've been an LED user for years. Biggest reason was huge burn times and abuse level. Ya I crash from time to time. Of course when I started to use LED they were still no where near as bright as HID. Things have changed this year.
I'm pretty sure I'm just going to replace my headlamp for the moment. The options. Click the pictures for info on each.
This is my first choice. % hour burn time, 700 lumen, LED. I had a chance to see this light last year and it really caught my attention.
Of course there has to be a light from NiteRider. Super bright, good burn time etc.
Andrew wants me to check out this system and has offered to let me try it.
Of course there is this beast. Ben uses a modified version of this. 1850 lumen's. Yep it would be like riding with the sun strapped to your handlebars.
Ah decisions decisions. Well the decision right now it to head of to work.
