One of the best bike lighting decisions I’ve ever made was to take a chance on the Outbound Lighting Evo/Hangover MTB combo. It is AWESOME!!! So, I have no doubt that their new $179 Detour road/gravel light is equally awesome. Although, I would probably only use it for gravel with one of these guys, because every dropbar bike I have, has an integrated GoPro mount under the computer.
Our original Road Edition set the bar high for the last several years. So we were challenged on how to improve it.
Right away, we’ve ditched the large battery pack. This is all internal, self contained, USB-C rechargeable, and slim enough to fit in your pocket.
Then we fine tuned the heck out of the beam pattern. Extremely smooth and progressive light field from the front of your tire all the way to where you are looking. We also added sidemarker lights to help with visibility from the side, much like on cars.
We’ve incorporated our quick-release fiberglass-reinforced nylon mount that we, ahem, “borrowed” from those clever camera guys to keep everything pointing in the right direction and easy to put on and take off with one hand.
We do have a custom mount solution to fit underneath most bike computers for that clean and tucked look: Quick Release Action Camera Adapter
Proudly and capably made just down the road in Chicago IL.
Pulled the trigger on this. Longer commute to work means 90 minutes of runtime on high for my current Niterider 1000 is cutting it close. Also wider bean should be a bit better with traffic. Looks like a good deal for the price.
