Just got the Hope Vision 4, subjectively it's about as 2.5 times as bright as my Cygolite Dualcross Pro with both on high.
Factory specs say 960 lumen on high setting, battery life is 2.15hrs on high, 4 power settings. Battery life is much longer on lower settings. 5200 mah li-ion battery pack. Reasonably price when compared to Lupine lights
Light kit comes with charger with universal mains plug, helmet mount, handlebar mount, extra long cable for helmet use, normal cable length for bars.
Waterproof battery and aluminum light head with cooling fins
4 x Seoul P4 leds, different lenses used to provide even light coverage
mode/ on/off button, full aluminum casing that is waterproof
Dual Cross Pro on left and the Hope on right, both on high setting
Wow. Ive been looking at this. Got a Lumicycle 12w spot but it is big and bulky and not too bright. This looks very good for LED.
I've been using this on the road at night, it's actually too bright on high (level 4). So I use mine on level 2-3 with double the battery life. The lens coverage is excellent which lights up the road verges very well. The quality of the build is evident from small things like the completely waterproof connectors. for the price probably the best on the market given the light output and the design. www.wiggle.co.uk has the best prices.
Wanted to get into the Lupine range but couldn't justify the spend. The Hope and the IBLaast http://www.nightlightning.co.nz/endurenz%20details.htm, are both very similar in output to the Lupine Wilma 4 but at half the price. I think from an output point of view they both offer the best value for the money.
