Everyone, without exception, was amazed at the sheer grunt of this tiny unit when they switched it on the first time. With Exposure’s ‘Cable Free Design’ there is no extra battery pack to worry about; it is all contained in the uncluttered body. It is light and compact enough to throw into the pocket ‘just in case’, but has more than enough power and smooth beam spread to act as an excellent bar light for everyday use, or a super-powerful helmet light using the natty mount.
This has been done at the expense of run time, of course, with only one hour riding at maximum power possible, even if you juggle the power settings.
This is where the Exposure system kicks in. For another £40 you can buy an extra battery cell to plug into the power socket (total weight becomes 210g), doubling the run time. £90 will get a triple to get you up to four hours on max. You can also get an ultra-bright ‘Red Eye’ rear clip-on light, powered off the rear socket, among other options.
It all leads to a very flexible system you can build on, taking out only the parts you need for each ride.
