    New Princeton Tec LED headlights

    There are three new lights that look like the Catete Double Shot, and Triple shot. They have 1,2, or 3
    3w leds. I saw a brochure at the LBS today. I have some other Princeton Tec lights, they make quality stuff.

    This is a stupid short animated page that will finally show you what the lights look like at the end of the video.

    Has anyone seen one? They are not on the Princeton Tec website yet. They mailed some info to the bike shop today. The video implies the triple is not being shipped yet. The catalogue I saw had longer run times than the Cateyes . I left the catalogue at the shop. Li-ion batteries and a two (2) hour charger.

    I'm going to have take a picture of the catalogue.

    They aren't available yet. I hope to get one as soon as they are and will report back. I wrote a little more about them HERE.

    They are expected Spring of '07.

    From the press release:

    "The Switchback Bike Light Series consists of three models; the Switchback 1.0, the perfect light for long distance road riding or as a back-up light for trail riding and mountain bike racing; the Switchback 2.0, designed as a primary lighting system for trail riders as well as a secondary light for mountain racing and the Switchback 3.0, with six hours of constant light output this is the perfect choice as a primary light source for mountain bike racing!



    Each model utilizes a powerful, bright 3 watt Maxbright L.E.D. bulb combined with a Collimated lens system for optimum light output; is waterproof to withstand harsh weather; has a lightweight Lithium Ion battery pack; LED battery power indicator; multiple output modes- High, Medium, Low and Strobe; and comes with a 12 volt car charger and both helmet and handle bar mounts.



    The real strength of this series lies in its rapid charge system, which takes only two hours to totally recharge the battery pack; the voltage regulated design for constant light output; and its proprietary circuit design for maximizing light output and efficiency. "
