A cast aluminium lamp unit and compact Li-ion battery — both with illuminated battery life indicators — results in one of the lightest and neatest light systems we’ve seen for quite a while. Attaching via a wide Velcro strap, the tiny battery fits either under the stem or under/over the top tube. The lamp itself utilises rubber O-rings, and three sizes are supplied to fit most bar diameters.
Thanks to an in-house reflector the four-watt LED lamp kicks out a good beam, but like any LED it lacks the ability to really penetrate darkness to any depth. That said, it’s plenty bright enough for familiar trails. For most winter rides we doubt you’ll need longer than the three-hour run time but a low beam setting increases run time to six hours although we’d only use it when climbing.
All told the MiNewt is light, well-built and excellent value.
