From the Goretex lined battery box – threaded connectors – cooling specific grain alignment in the aluminium headlights – ten position dimmer – helmet mount as standard to the fuel gauge, everything on the System X-6 has been designed to facilitate user friendly ness, and reliability. All backed up with Blackburn’s lifetime warranty.
Two multi level 2watt headlights cut through the gloom well, although they lack a little long distance penetration on full beam, using a single light on the lowest second allows you to eek nearly 20 hours from the lights. Although not massively useful off-road, it is possible to use the lights on the trail for nine or ten hours with careful use of the bar mounted dimmer. The quality is great and the battery life top notch, if only it could loose a little weight.
MBR RATING: 9/10
