A vey specialist item; expect this to go very cold but stock to disappear

2 year warranty , made in the UK

3300 lumens uk made, with SMART reflex technology, built-in accelerometers to automatically increase power when it senses faster/rougher riding, but throttle back on smoother terrain. maintaining burn time

If you ride your mountain bike off-road at night then exposure branded lighting is the defacto option
these are what the vast majority of 24 hour race mountain bike riders use for the night sections

Yes you can buy cheap faulty Chinese high lumen for £15-20 if you prefer

Restocked yesterday 28 units,10 already sold, 18 units left

Use British cycling 10% code to get these for approx £236, rrp £375 next cheapest £300

Would be great if cyclists only used these off road.

But round here, cyclists on the busy main roads to work use retina burning LEDs that are actually dangerous in the fact that they can distract "cagers" (as cyclists like to derogatorilly call car drivers) away from other more sensible cyclists and other traffic.

It wouldn't be so bad if they directed these lights downwards so they could see 100 metres ahead, but ohno, they seem to think it necessary to light up the road half a mile away (like in the picture), which most cars don't even do, even when using main beam. At least main beam can be "dipped'. Not these though and they are just at the right height to temporalliy blind the regular car driver duly checking his mirror when a cyclist approaching from the rear in slow moving traffic.

Doesn't bother the seasoned mamil/mawil though with his/her undeserved, super elevated level of self worth tho.

I understand cyclist want to "Be Seen", but personally, I find it insulting that any cyclist would think most drivers are that blind they do not see them with regular lighting.

.....and then there's the cyclists who have these retina burners on flash mode.

I welcome the day these super bright LEDs are made illegal for road use.

There's even one guy on my daily commute that has two handlebar-mounted + helmet-mounted super bright front facing LEDs as well as seat-mounted + helmet-mounted super bright red rear facing LEDs and not forgetting his GoPro and I'm not joking either

ALL FLASHING AT DIFFERENT INTERVALS!

I'm sure he's not the only one though and guess he just one of those attention seeking types who just like to just annoy other people and capture their reactions for posterity and not forgetting Youtube monetization of course.

Besides which, £200+?

Was this a mistake? You could get something very similar direct from the FE for under £25.

Probably shouldn't have mentioned this as it may end up there being more super-bright LEDs on the road, but come on, over £200?

Never really got why this site doesn't actively encourage more niche deals/ hobbies like these, potentially with a different rating system other than heat as they just get buried. For stuff like this I'd assume the people interested in buying it already have a sense of the quality of the product and will be able to establish for themselves whether the price is hot for them or not. Appreciate OP taking time to post, heat for me, just outside of budget at momentum. Have a Chinese cheapish version, its fine but no where near the lumins promised and this would be a big step up

Exposure Maxx-D Mk10
Exposure lovingly refer to the Maxx-D Mk10 as the “Big Daddy” because it is an awesomely powerful and filled to the brim with every bit of tech that you ever dreamed you bike light would have. With up to 3,300 lumens of pure light output this is a light that will not only make sure that you are seen from multiple angles but it also makes sure that you can see every nook and potential danger appearing on the track ahead. Ideal for night time MTB riders, or road cyclist that like to train at darkest night.

Reflex Technology
Instead of manually having to switch your bike light between different, static lighting modes Reflex Technology enables the Maxx-D Mk10 to adjust itself to different levels of brightness to suit your changing environment. The makes these changes dependent on your current gradient, acceleration and cornering force. At the same time the light will still work within your chosen burn time for the light. For example of how this works, when cycling at high speeds down a steep descent the light will go into full power mode, and yet when your bike is stationary the light will automatically switch to a battery saving mode.

OLED Status Display
The Maxx-D Mk10 comes with a built in OLED display screen that gives you more control and knowledge about your bike light than ever. The display gives you program and mode information before switching to a burndown countdown. You can also track your battery better than ever in light mode, or when charging.

Thermal Management
When it comes to super powerful bike lights using LED it’s important to control the temperature to ensure that the light doesn’t get damaged and the body of the light can be touched without hurting you. Exposure have guaranteed the intelligent thermal management of their entire light range and especially with this light that can produce up to 3300 lumens of output.

Features
3300 lumen light output
Weighs 310g

Minimum battery life 2 hours
Maximum battery life 36 hours
Dimensions: 115 x 54 x 50cm

Includes reflex plus technology
OLED status display
10 built-in light modes

If u need the helmet torch joystick mk12 try Rutland use code have6 to get the limited edition blue red or purple (or black) for £6 off at £105.97 delivered includes all the mounts
Good price for now, but Evans recently finished sale had some amazing bargains.
Not sure who wrote the blurb but Exposure called this model the Maxx-Daddy, hence Maxx-D, and with the six-pack it's not their brightest anymore! Having said all that.....its probably enough for 99% of people.
Good luck getting heat, I know plenty of cyclists who won't pay exposure prices. It's a shame as my Mk2 Sixpack is still as good as the day I got it despite drops, dents, etc.

Yep never expect a hukd when it’s quite specialist, if it had been a latest TV or a 12 pack of coke this heavily reduced I’d be a vip today.

im happy saw this Thursday and was os, I,d got a refund on a moon light that broke a week before warranty and so paid a bit more for this, I’ve found wired battery packs always move about and scratch my frames

ps. That’s the only problem with exposure lights they continue to work and don’t lose performances over time, iPhone 10 just out, I’d hazard a guess an IPhone 3 would be near useless

Couldn't agree more... I say if a Standard (brightness and non flash) white light up front and similar red on the back with a hi viz jacket is not enough to be seen YOU'RE doing something wrong.. And no amount of extra lights etc. will stop the drivers who just don't care and will cut you up regardless. I can see quite clearly the (admittedly equal) idiots riding with NO lights/ reflectors on the pavement on my commute.... That is once my eyes have recovered from idiot I just passed with the strobeoscope strapped to his handle bars.

There was this one guy a few years ago who had a blue flashing light amongst the many different speed reds on his bike/person... Now I'm sure that's already illegal

Please send me details of this £26 3300 lumen mtb light ,
that will still work next winter let alone 5 years time, oh yes I can buy new ones every winter, that’s great for the environment and let’s boost the Chinese economy to make more cheap plastic, and sod the English manufacturers who make absolutely quality products and offer warranties and even fix products long out of warranty..

ive heard all the same arguments, out of interest have you ever been on high moorland 7 miles from home when your cheap Chinese light have failed due to overheating, faulty connections getting wet etc.. let me tell you it’s not a great experience when the temperatures hovering around zero and it’s a long peddle home in the pitch black
this is a niche product,

is an iPhone or galaxy a rip off , is a goretex jacket a rip off over a cheap mac from Tesco..
Do you're own research! You seem knowledgable enough and I'm too hungover to entertain you...

Then you have never caught a glimpse of one in you door mirror as a cyclist passed on a cold dark morning that's caused negative after-image that lasted for a while afterwards then?

Pretty dangerous, no?

I thought not.

Being a driver, I suppose you also don't mind when oncoming drivers don't dip their headlights? Which let's face it, are nowhere near as bright as some of these "Off Road" cycle lights.

Christ, if car drivers fit anything above 55w to their vehicles (with proper beam pattern), they get fined and points on their licence. But if cyclists could use a 500w halogen floodlight to see a few metres ahead, some of them would without a thought

Oh, and FYI, the "YM" part was "You Muppet" (or other "M" word if appropriate).

I don't mind it, no. No malice intended. Again, tend to either look away or do that anti-dazzle thing with the rear-view mirror. Either way, I don't drive a car on off road bicycle trails (which is what this light is intended for), so it's never been an issue.

I am glad that you recognise the desire for cyclist to be seen, they are pretty vunerable on a bike against a car/van/lorry.

If you are cycling in well lit city roads then there is no need for these and I agree most ( not all lights ) should be sufficient. Where it is different is if you are cycling on country roads where there is no lighting.

As a seasoned commuter, I also do a fair amount of MTB as well I completely agree that there are drivers who simply wont see you no matter what you do. However in my experience using a couple of good rear lights has had an impact, high vis jackets have been proven to be ineffective in anything but fading daylight. In complete darkness something like proviz ( actually grey and lights up when light shine on it ) is more effective.

Lastly to the "offroad" lights, yes you can get something equivalent from ebay (solarstorm x3 for £15), and they are actually better for both on road and off road. This is because they use a band rather than fixed mount, which means if you crash the mount doesnt rip your light apart ( my experience with a moon light ) and it means that you can have it on "full beam" for cycle paths thus avoiding nija pram pushers and dogs, and simple swivel it round to avoid blinding fellow cyclists on the path or drivers when you get on the road.
I thought this was a deals site and the idea of the comments box was to comment on the deal or product and draw on personal experience not engage in mud slinging I'm sure there are forums to discuss personal opinion elsewhere .

retina burning LEDs


You are not wrong about that. I'm sick and tired of being blinded by these lights and I'm a cyclist. They are wayyy too strong.

They need to be regulated so the design is not an open circle pointing in all directions, but focused to the ground (like dipped headlights on a car).

I hope the government steps in soon and regulates these. Over a certain lumen and they need to have some kind of dipping. These are absolutely overkill for 99% of the people using them, especially in cities where there is already lots of street lighting. All you need is a decent flasher to catch drivers eye, rather than blinding them and other cyclists with these intense beams of light.
I've started saving all my clubcard points to use in Evans Cycles. I got the Exposure six pack. I used clubcard points, 10% off discount code and the light was on offer... cost me £14 in actual cash!

Great light but doesn't last that long on full..
You have to love that the internet has given folk the ability to give their opinion on all sorts of things, be it an informed decision or otherwise.

Non cyclists giving an opinion on the value of a deal for a particularly niche type of cyclist is laughable.

Off road bike lights need to be bright as the trails are dark at night. But they also need to be reliable and have a good mount to the handle bars. Cheap Chinese lights have neither of these qualities. In fact, the majority of 'affordable' lights attach to handle bars with rubber bands - which is a reason why they end up dazzling drivers. The batteries in cheap lights are also terribly put together and of low quality, hence having to either use a soldering iron or replace at least annually. I know - I've done both.

This light has internal batteries, rather than a cheap pack and to stop it pointing north as a result, it has a metal clamp, so it stays rock solid even when being used off road - where it's designed to be used. So it's not comparable to cheap lights in many respects and I know what I'd find more useful in the pitch black in the middle of nowhere.

This is a good deal for what they are.

Some people rave about Chinese lights I’ve had bad experiences,
I go out in all weathers snow, sleet, rain, even dry, in the dark and on my own, as with a decent waterproof I’m happy to pay the premium and get the user experience I require.

I had had some decent branded lights that had an external battery pack, the connection into battery broke no lights to get home,
I’ve had Chinese lights die due to overheating, getting wet , I’ve had batteries that should be fully charged but die after 30 mins ,
i also prefer the helmet mounted light with no wires, I don’t want to be garrotted by a stray branch catching the wire .

I always felt they were overpriced at £375 they are damn expensive
£236 and a little Quidco makes me happier.

if you do a 24 hour mtb race in the future hire some exposure and test them, you may be surprised not all things in life are equal.

Fair enough for not jumping down my throat, it’s just on the flip side I’ve spent quite a lot less and not had an issue at all, my solarstorm is a beast!

I just can’t get my head around the cost of these, it’s a massive amount for a few leds and battery. I take on board the build quality and self contained unit though. If I get the chance, I’ll take a look though but even for me to take a sniff at buying it would have to be around £100

A few mates have banged on about them for years to me, I’d never pay £375 either . I was at ardrock last year and we had a good chat with a couple of the marketing/sales guys , it was obvious they didn’t need to push a sale, as good products sell themselves, a few mates got some ex demo, approx 45% off rrp, no deteristion on battery life whatsoever , after sales service is second to non and the products keep going , a friend has a 3-4 year old maxx daddy and it charges and runs pretty much the same as when new

I sold a bike today, so thought I’d treat myself this weekend
12 units left in stock, 6 sold yesterday. Expected them to be gone if I’m honest

131 hot votes clearly some people appreciate a discount, if it was a TV with the same saving it’sd be smoking, but it’s a Torch
Only 3 left in stock, buy now to avoid disappointment
Sold out, definately not a hukd
