Hi hubbers

 

I at looking at getting a new Bike Light an am considering this:

 

https://www.rydercycling.co.za/ryder-products/lights/900-lumen-front-detail

 

Does any know how wide the beam is? I can't find any information on this on the interweb.

 

I am wanting a Wide Beam for MTB night riding not a SPOT light. I have lights similar to the Marvel Pro 900 and Streak lights but I am looking for a strong Light and Battery in one.

 

 Thanks for your input.

Bought one of those yesterday, it works pretty well, but not a very broad beam I dont think

 

I would maybe look at this https://ride.lezyne.com/collections/led-lights-performance/products/1-led-25f-v204 instead, a little more expensive, but in hindsight I should have got this one rather

 

It did not look as bright trying out in the shop, but I think it is because the beam is broader

Go for the Ryder Light Concept 1000 rather, much broader beam than the 900.

I have a Lezyne Deca Drive 1500i or something...it's great. But a lil pricey...not too bad...However, having been with someone with one of these recently, I would FAR rather recommend this.

They are great and with a lil eBucks...buy 2. One for bars and one for lid and you can shred trails at night no problem :)

If I may ask, where did you buy your batteries?

 

Thanks for your input Savage.

 

You can get 18650 Rechargeable batteries quite easily now... i even think that i saw some on the self at Builders Warehouse the other day, they come in 3.7V and 4.2V make sure you get the correct one.

I have a similar light to your Marvel Pro on my bars, and then use the Ryder 900 strapped to my helmet.  The combination works well, the Ryder gives a fairly even spread, wide beam, that helps with peripheral vision, the light on the bars then lights up the path ahead. 

 

On its own, I'm not sure I'd be too confident to tackle anything technical, though for riding dirt roads at night, it is fine.

Thanks Thermophage, a little out of the budget range and no internal battery.

 

I current have a similar setup with MagicShine 1000lm headlamp ( with external Bat) on my lid and and MagicShine 1000lm  bar mount ( with External Bat) on my bars, I bough them about 10 years ago. The lights still work great but I am looking to simplify with the internal Batteries.
