For me all in one unit & the run time were major deciding factors. If you want to go for long expeditions, you can easily bring extra lights, or mount extra light to the bar, or the helmet, but most of won’t need that. but these lights will suit most riders. the Diablo is nice as a flash light too
Be careful with the Diablo, don’t run it at full strength all the time, as it will run out of battery, but the six pack won’t, so keep Diablo at low most of the time.
The light has the same type of input cover as Six pack light, which is great.
I had to bail when doing side hops down the stairs, the bars slammed on the ground, the light spun on impact.
I have posted on Instagram about this hopefully Exposure will fix this, they liked my post.
The bike was laying in the stairs, drive side down, but I rolled it to a flat area, and centred the light & tightened the bolt. So far I don’t think this is a big deal. but under trail riding with no crashes it stays in place, but I time will tell.
Nice cover keeps the input clean, very tight to get on. but in some instances I managed to get it loose, it might be due to me hitting it with my knee or something getting caught in it, because my knee hits the handlebar, the fork crown, the stem, I think it’s most likely because I hit it with my knee. but with no crashes it never came opened up.
Easy to read display, showing battery time, and mode.
one button to switch modes, and change settings.
The red thing under the mount is the quick release pull lever, which works great, it makes removal and install of the light easy, nice when you want to take the light with you or just take it off.
after the winter ended I noticed the pin was out to the right, but I fixed this easily.
The mounting clamp works for up to 35mm handle bar diameter, for 31.8mm there are two plastic half spacers for top and bottom, you can use the thin spacer with the plastic spacers for smaller diameters, for 35mm there is a thin rubber band is secured with a 4 mm Hex bolt.
Even the packaging is great, comes in a nice case , it’s light weight. there are of course more extreme options, but those require huge battery packs, cooling fans: https://kit.com/mtbboy1993/extreme-bike-lights but exposure lights stay cool, they don’t overheat as easily, some lights will overheat in minutes, but Exposure can run for the whole ride without overheating, they stay cold most of the time, only noticed very slight heat from six pack once, I mean barely, which went away quick. so great performance. I rode in low plus and subzero to -5 or 6 I think. my old Gemini Xera overheated in few minutes in -10C, basically useless light for mtb. at full strength indoors in room temperature when being still the light actually gets very warm, but during riding in the winter it never gets warm.
Other review: I won’t do any light strength/distance tests as this has already been tested by others. videos won’t do it justice, but in 2018 & 2019 I have used these lights, and have several videos with them in use, but as I said video does not do it justice, it does not show well how wide the spread is and how good the light lights up the trail, but you can see from the videos that it’s great, but not how great.
