Nice!!! I was just thinking it is getting dark outside much too quickly. Time to pull out the helmet light. This might compliment it nicely. How does this compare to a Diablo or a Tecate? I have my 8 inch sitting in the garage, but don't like it for tight woods riding. (Bought it for Baja). I can feel that weight up front a bit too much in the singletrack.

This light compares very close to the Diablo HID Race Light. It has a wide peripheral and good distance. This light I would recommend for trail riding or technical single track. Its much brighter than a HID light lumen comparison HID is 3200 lumens and Squadron LED M/C Light is 3600 lumens. Feel Free to Pm Me for Thumpertalk forum member discounts.

Sweet. I will PM you. Thanks for providing the spec. That's what I was wondering. Quite a bit lighter in weight than the Diablo too. The new light is only 24oz ?? 1.5lbs ??The Diablo is 3.75lbs according to your site. Sounds like this is the new way to go.

I know this light is not road legal, nor I expect ever intended to be: but is there a way to fake a low beam, so one can get home at night.

Police here are pretty reasonable with Enduro marginally legal bikes, but meeting a patrol car head on at night might raise an eyebrow. Once one stirs the pot, the conversation can ramp up.

Here is a image of the Squadron with our Tecate bracket mount system. You will get a more adjustment with this set up so you can aim the light more towards the ground so it ain't blinding on coming traffic! :lol:

led typically dont burn out unless the heatsink was designed wrong

I like it.

Anything to go wrong other than bulbs burning out?

If one, two or three bulbs burn out does it still work fine?

thanks.

If one LED bulb goes out the remaining three will still work :lol:

Is this unit equipped with it's own voltage, current and thermal regulation? Is the PC circuit potted or conformal coated?

Thank You.
