    Any Info On The Upcoming Cygolite TridenX?

    Just curious about this light.

    It's due in the Fall.

    Anybody know anything about it yet?

    http://cygolite.com/ Can't find anything on the website unless someone has found a secret page on there. If so post it!

    Just looking at the light on the page it looks like the Dual Cross body with the same top buttons but I suspect they're using the Cree Q5 or SSC P4 LED's.

    Gonna be 3 LEDs, for the name "Tri"=Three
    "Den"=Teeth, the thing that does the damage... LEDs

    They will be next generation likely Cree Editions Q5 like Enig said. Price will be around $400 or less.
    Ultra powerful. Around 500 lumens or more, since it will be more powerful than HIDs.

    If it comes in under Four Bills that'd be kinda nice.

    they have to since you can get a high quality, heavy battery HID for $350.
    $400 and under is a good pricepoint and may be something beyondbikes

    500 lumens will be awesome. I mean the dual ion pro is twice the dual ion now...so that should be plenty bright too. I've emailed them, but they can't disclose any information as of yet.

    Welp, because of the new model(s) coming out this fall, it helped in lowering the price of the current models. That's good for the bargain hunters like me.
