Exposure might seem expensive compared to various Chinese lights but the build quality, customer service, genuine light output and beam pattern make them worth it if you can afford them.
Heat! These may seem pricey for a light but they are far far better than others. The biggest benefit is that the support is UK based and having used them in the past can say it's some of the best. You'll never get service like that with Cateye or Moon etc.
Excellent light. Love mine, wish it was that cheap when I purchased mine
How many Lumens?
Exposure website says 1000 max
Best lights for off-road cycling money can buy, when you factor in second hand value they are a bargain
Great price! Thanks for posting op.
Sadly Exposure lights always get compared with cheap Chinese £20 lights where the charger eventually dies, the Li-Ion batteries might burst into flames whilst charging, or more likely the batteries run out of juice 2/3rds into a ride without warning.

I have both, but don't really use the Chinese no brand ones because of the lack of reliability.

Ignoring the (brilliant) quality/reliability of these Exposures, this is a great price and worthy of heat - which all people should be judging upon.

p.s. don't forget the BC 10% discount if you are a member.

Heat good price.
Even with good build quality this seems overpriced. You could buy an Olight, Nitecore etc for a lot less with the same if not better specs. At the moment I personally would go for the Rofis MR70 on Amazon at the moment for £44 which is a superb deal. Just craft your own mount system. The battery alone is probably worth about £20 and it comes with a Cree XHP70.2 for an max output of 3500 lumens, is waterproof, can be used as a power bank and has excellent build quality. Just my 10 bobs worth.

Not sure you could even compare like for like. Manufacturers running time for the rofis (which seems overpriced for a cheap Chinese torch) at 1000 lumens is 10 minutes. The exposure is 90 minutes.

Edit: Apologies. I misread the manufacturers table (too much rum after night shifts). They both have the same performance at 1000 lumens.

Got two of these excellent light and this is a great price. Cheap Amazon lights look great on paper but in the real world ie this time of year these work perfectly and as advertised with run times.

"Craft your own mount system." That's the reason for the lack of understanding /cold feed back right there.
The joystick helmet mount works SO well. Perfect for night riding/racing without any DIY worries (I've been there and done that - even my Dinotte wasn't perfect)

Do you ride bikes, do you ride off road at night, then yes you may never need an exposure light and you can get by on cheap Chinese Tat, I’ve had too many of said Chinese tat fail on me when I really need it to be working
Ie in the dark off road miles from home

If you think Rofis is cheap tat then your clearly not qualified to comment on flashlights

From that reply I assume you don’t ride bikes off-road in the dark so clearly not qualified to comment

No mention of warranty on Amazon’s page, although if the rofl website is to be believed and you are happy to deal with an overseas company and the risks involved, then yes it looks good as a regular torch, but I’ll stick with my exposure arsenal for now ..

Yes I have a Scott Scale 720 which gets used a lot. I currently have an Olight M2T with the bike mount which has worked great for a long time. It also doubles as a great carry around flashlight. I’m not saying this torch is crap it’s probably a very good piece of kit but I’d rather spend less on the very good setup I have. But anyone stating the flashlights I originally mentioned are cheap Chinese are just showing their ignorance.

This is a headtorch for your helmet so when you are riding trails in the woods you see where you look, need bar mounted lights as well for optimal setup.
I have three now two on bars and one on helmet my old exposure joystick ie 5 years old and still going strong was a little dim compared to the new ones. 3 is a perfect setup on the bars one on the helmet for night rides . And on medium they last fot hours and when you ate in pitch black in the woods you need reliability unlike the cheap Amazon specials that have been hit and miss for me.. Great price
