Bike Light: Niterider TriNewt or Cygolite TridenX?
I am interested in a high power LED set-up with SSC emitters (about as powerful as the Fenix Cree lights)
I have found a NiteRider Trinewt at about 500 lumens, with 3 LEDs and a Cygolite TridenX with 3 LEDs with around 500 lumens.
Which would you rather get? Which is more reliable? I read some people with issues with the NiteRider products.
Check out also the Dinotte 600L - that is 520-600 lumen, high powered LED system.
I'm looking at buying one of these too. I'm thinking the Cygolite TridenX will be the way to go.
Well I pulled the trigger and bought a TridenX tonight. I bought it from "Seasonal Outfitters" on Ebay for $229.99 (239.99 shipped). The seller still has 3 more at this price; FYI.
I plan on running this as a bar light and using my Mininewt.X2 as a helmet light. I should have this light buy this Friday's local MTB night ride, I'll take some pics and let you all know what I think.
The runtime on high is a bit disappointing, otherwise I might consider it.
I have a couple of Dinotte 200L lights which I like very much. If I decide to go with something more powerful I'll likely pick up the Dinotte 600 L as the run time seem rather good. The workmanship is very good, and customer support is first rate.You may wish to check out their web page.
