Dual - 3 x CREE XM-L2 LEDS Bicycle Head Light Demo!!!

Postby Krellon » Thu Mar 06, 2014 9:15 am

As a follow up up from another forum post regarding my Dual CREE XM-L2 Head lamps I decided to do a live demo to show there performance.

http://youtu.be/bqJViFBPg1U

Pretty impressive even if I say so my self.

In the demo both lamps are on but under normal conditions I tend too right with just one on low and pointing further down.

Enjoy

Duel or Dual?

PS remind me where you ride so I can be sure not to be anywhere near the front of you.

Good narrow beam of light. Not much spread though.

I reckon the first post deserves an honourable mention in the spelling thread. :lol:

What appears in video/photos typically bears little resemblance to how it appears in person.

The spread is ok if I lift the lights back but then I kill on coming traffic so I have to compromise.

This is the problem with cheaper lights, round beam that shines too much up. Fine in the bush, not so much with oncoming traffic.

It can be controlled a bit through positioning.
TBH, I prefer these as opposed to the alternatives which cost 10 times more.

I sorted the spread problem for my cheapo cree headlight with one of these. $5.
