Situated in the darkest corner of England, Kielder Forest has wilderness riding unmatched by any other trail centre and starry skies to ride under.
The Xeccon Zeta 1300R's wide beam pattern smoothly lighting up the trail in front is what we tend to look for in a bar mount.
It is a bit of a surprise to find that a helmet mount isn’t actually included in the - already pretty salty - price of the Niterider Lumina 1100.

Very little to complain about the simple yet effective Light And Motion Seca 2500 Enduro. If they could just tweak the cable layout it would be perfect.

The Exposure Joystick Mk11 is at the upper end, price-wise, but low profile, lightweight and has a near perfect beam and focus.
In a world where external battery packs and endless cabling constitute the norm, Exposure Maxx-D all in one approach is a breath of fresh air.
