Born into the world of endurance and mtn. bike racing the joystick crosses over nicely for weekend or longer [w/solar charger] wilderness trips.
At 85 gms. it is a few grams lighter then a surefire executive elite and 22 gms. lighter then a aa minimag light w/lithium batteries.
The light is 28mm in diameter and 108mm long. Because its designed for bike racing it throws a usable beam joystick with helmet mountwell down the trail.
A 3 watt luxeon sled [super led] is powered by rechargable lithium-ion batteries. The spot beam throws a usable light of 100 feet down the trail on high, about a third less on low. The led is nearly indestructble compared with hid lamps.
There are three settings available by double clicking the "on" button. High,low, and strobe.
Burn times of 2 1/2 hrs, 7 1/2 hrs., and days for each setting.
The light comes with a helmet mount and the light has a small lanyard hole on the back for hanging. It is easily rigged for hiking use on a shoulder strap with a heavy duty rubber band.
Pros: Cannot be accidently turned on
Beam pattern lights well down the trail
Led has a lifetime warranty
Strobe function handy for rescue situations
You could also use this light for cycling ...
Cons: The $249.00 price tag keeps this from being a 5.
Recharge time required.
