Our review

A relatively heavy system considering its average run times but a decent balance of speed-friendly depth and singletrack-happy width
Skip to view product specifications

Niterider’s new Race series uses a simple battery connected to their proven Pro head. The head is a relatively compact single-LED unit, attached to the bar with a multi-angle adjustable bracket. This puts it dead centre ahead of your stem but at 75g alone, it’s nearly as heavy as the head unit.

The actual output is a decent balance of speed-friendly depth and singletrack-happy width though, with no obvious dark spots or rings to detract from detail. The four-LED battery indicator lets you accurately judge use of the three evenly stepped output levels too. The long solid battery needs careful siting though, and it’s a relatively heavy system considering its average run times.
