...man are these things sexy. The system is so light weight that at first I thought the battery was missing! These guys don't miss any detail when it comes to setting up lighting for solo24's
On twisty singletrack I found myself descending faster with this [radical] light than any of the others on the test. The Niteflux, Lumicycle and Lupine came close but this beam pattern was clearly the least straining in the twisty stuff, and to me that says a lot about the lighting game - it's beam quality for a particular application, not sheer quantity.
I didn't get a full appreciation for how bright the lights are, and for how well suited the beam patterns are for railing singletrack, until I was actually out there *racing*, at full speed. They are unlike anything I have ever ridden with. The difference compared to all the other riders I was passing out there was quite noticeable. Some people moved over for me WAAAAAY before I was anywhere near them, that's how bright they were. I had to tell a couple of them "not yet, I'm not even close!"
Our top recorded speed was 60 miles per hour, in the pitch dark of the desert night. The confidence and safety I was afforded with my Podda ensured I would not need my brakes on any of the downhills.
