As we approach the winter here in the UK the nights are getting darker earlier and the daily commute is following suit too, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to park the bikes for the next few months.
Light technology is so good that pitch black trails or unlit streets are fair game, opening up an exciting riding experience you may not have known existed!
Here’s a detailed look at one of the industry-leading lights on offer from UK-based manufacturers Exposure…
The Exposure Six Pack comes in this neat zip-up pouch, easy to keep everything safely together whether you’re taking it to an endurance race or simply protecting it in the shed. What’s clear is that if the case is this good quality, the light’s going to blow you away!
Open up the pouch and the case reveals two recessed cushioned sections, one for the light and the other for the charger, along with a pocket for a spare cable and instructions.
Here it is, the Six Pack light itself. Weighing in at a mere 362g, the CNC machined body has been crafted from aerospace grade aluminium and is ready to fend off everything you can throw at it from rain, sleet and snow to trail crud and road spray. If you’re lucky enough to be riding in warmer conditions then the Mk3 has also been designed to transfer heat as efficiently as possible too.
Because of its self contained design – the battery is within the unit – there are no cables or straps to worry about, so there’s less hassle in use.
The Six Pack is capable of pumping out 2000 lumens from its six Cree XPG R5 LEDs, which work together with the resin lenses to efficiently produce the optimum beam pattern – what this means in use is that none of the light is wasted, keeping you pinned to the singletrack or providing maximum visibility on the road.
As well as being 75g lighter and 10% brighter than its predecessor, this year’s Six Pack Mk3 also uses the company’s new Optimised Mode Selector (OMS) system, allowing you to precisely select from a number of settings to use the full potential of the light’s output – the battery will last between two to 36 hours depending on the mode you choose.
We really like this quick release handlebar bracket which has a solid quality build feel, you just know your light’s going nowhere with this clicked in. Other useful additions include a silicone storm cap, Smart Port technology for compatibility with a range of accessories and an LED information display.
