Beema’s updated twin-LED lamp is extremely powerful for the price but doesn’t skimp on features.
A new spot and flood lens set-up produces broad peripheral coverage with less halo effect than last year’s light and an OK reach for speed work.
It throws lots of light down in front of the wheel and in the mid-distance, which makes it comparable with lights that cost double the price, especially when using it on slower or rockier terrain. The three power modes are separated by a flash mode, which is irritating though.
Recessed lenses reduce upward glare. The O-ring mount and bag battery are simple to fit, and generous run times are indicated by the main switch changing colour.
Reliability has been excellent on all sets of Beema lights that we’ve used, making the AS-2000 pretty near unbeatable for the price.
