Focussed trail light with impressive run times

Lumicycle has been producing brilliantly practical and bombproof lights in the UK for years.

The three-LED Summit head unit (previously know as the 3XPG) is relatively focused but natural bar movement offsets that and there’s always plenty of light and reach on the trail.

The foolproof toggle switch lets you flick back and forwards in the menu and the three-minute on, auto off ‘boost’ setting is great for descents.

There’s a battery/power LED and a ‘peak’ to stop upward glare. Run times are impressive from the small, easily fitted battery bag, there’s an extra lead for a second head, and all Lumi lamps and batteries are compatible for easy upgrading.

The mount is 35mm bar compatible and reliability is legendary, but the Lumicycle Explorer has double the power for only a small extra expense, so really, that one is more tempting.

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.
