25 miles offroad...

And I would have to agree with Sanjoh. Though I didn't have the lights wired up, I rode 25 miles off road, gravel, large rocky river beds, sandy whoops, etc. Nothing weeny here. Those mounts held the lights with ease. No distortion in the metal, no visible vibration. Great quality mounts.

After wiring up my two 24watt flood lights, I can't imagine lighting up the road at night with oncoming traffic. These bad boys really are impressive. I'll try to get some beam patterns up tomorrow night also. These lights are bitchin.

Left or right.

In the pics of the lights hitting the trees/bushes, I assume the flood is on the bike's left side, and the spot on the right? (ie hence it's opposite in the view facing the lights on page 2, where flood is right, and spot is left?

Have these lights been tested in ongoing high heat? Especially if stationary (eg no air flow over them). Running them with night time temps of ~80F for a couple of hours, and prolonged stationary stops. Just curious at how they survive.

Also what is the temperature of the glass like?

Can we also get some beam patterns, those shown from the pool, don't do it justice. Shone up against a garage from a reasonable distance would be good.

thanks :)

Yes flood is on the left, spot on the right.

I live in Florida and have had them on for 9 hours at one time with no heat related issues. I've ridden single track at less than first gear speeds for 2+ hours on the same set of lights without issue.

Please see the tree pics and comments from others on beam pattern.

Just looking at the arrow below, looks like a bending prone area. Hard to tell from the picts as how thick it really is.

New LED Light Model available next week

New model has 3 levels of dimming built in. Based on the 24watt version, the dimming is controled by cycling power (on/off) for less than 2 seconds. Each power cycle reduces the light output, goes back to full power after the last power cycle.

Use full power when needed

Dim the lights so retinas are saved


Cost (shipped in conus)
Pair spot - $100
Pair spot/flood - $115
Pair Flood Beam - $125
Pair 3 mode 24 watt flood - $160

Payments via paypal, please contact me for stock status prior to payment.

Previous purchasers, thanks for your business, contact me for a deal on the new light model.

Did the exterior appearance or anything else change on the new model with the built in dimmer?
Is this dimmer feature part of the Spot and the Flood model?
I really want something I can leave on for day riding to be more visible, and also have a night mode where they can stay on without frying the car ahead of me, perhaps the combination of the dimmer feature and tipping them down just a bit would be good.

No external changes, 24 watt flood only.

The dimming feature will meet your needs.

My friend and I are going with the separate Dimmer switch option. This will be wired in series with the lights.
So an On/Off switch to control the whole thing, thus keeping the previously set brightness level and the 6Amp dimmer switch from eBay to enable 0%-100% brightness level adjustment for the lights.

D'oh! Bad timing, I guess. So I presume that the dimming module can't be sold as a retrofit option? These are a whole new set of lights?
