MyTinySun Pro 3600 front light review£550.00

Highly tunable twin-headed mountain bike setup

BikeRadar score4/5

This unit offers serious power in a highly tunable twin-headed setup, but it’s not the sleekest or lightest.

The three ultra-bright Cree XM-L U2 LEDs on each side mean a vast amount of raw power, with swappable 19-, 25- or 42-degree lenses that configure the split between long-reaching spot and super-wide flood.

The big handlebar remote switch can be set in default hi/lo mode or in a six-step ‘Expert’ mode, with a slow, eye-friendly transition between levels. The sheer amount of light meant we sometimes had to throttle the power back to stop distracting bounce-back on wet nights.

The large battery bag has enough power for proper epic rides, but looks more like the cell off a £100 light than a £500 set, and with the remote switch it’s no lightweight.

Also, the flip-over clamp for the O-ring mount can be awkward to undo, although it’s certainly secure once you’ve thrown the switch.

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.
