    Picked up my new bike today along with the usual goodies.

    Once think that i am really impressed with is my front light, i was a bit unsure about it to start with but the guy in the bike shop swore by it, so i brought it.

    Its called a bressner photon torpedo 1 its uses led technology (900 lumen max)

    tried the light out earlier and have to say i was really surprised how bright it is even in daylight, will get some pics up when i go out riding in the dark to show how good it is

    Has anyone else heard or uses this light??

    Here is link to site, someone local to me sells them, can give u his details if anyone wants them

    The problem with a lot of these ‘adapted for a bike’ high lumens units is that they give a very narrow beam, something that would work on a torch but would not really do the job on a bike, TBH.

    I’ve got that one, nice and bright beam with a very usable ‘halo’ around the side for peripheral vision. If you are getting one buy the rechargeable battery and charger from the same site, It’ll give you 12 or so hours of continuous light. I’ve used it in some underground situations away from biking and it proved to be better that similar lights in the 200 quid bracket.
