Piercing but pricey lamp

The Seca 2000 Enduro from Light & Motion has an exceptionally well-balanced beam, but it’s hugely expensive and low on ‘in-flight’ information.

By using six LEDs in two rows, with diffuser glass over the lower three, it gives a broad lower-powered peripheral from bar end to bar end and right down to the wheel, then lots of saturation and really good reach in the centre. The simple fat-hook and strap mount keeps it stable on head or bar, and the diving-quality connectors on the really long cable plug together and seal with a proper ‘pfft’.

Run time is good but the tall rubber-ended hard-case battery can be hard to fit and the three power settings are interrupted by a wavy flash setting. There’s no life indicator until the ‘last gasp’ warning, which is disappointing for a premium-priced light.

Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
