Just noticed this today -
Same weight and runtime as the 900. $700.
The article says they've improved the beam pattern "The new Seca 1400 will also have an improved beam pattern from its all new bi-conic reflector, which L&M says delivers a broader spot and clean even fill light, tailored for confidence at speed."
I own a 900 - there's definitely no need for a "brighter" light, but I would definitely welcome a light that's has a broader patter up ahead, and although I've used it only for road biking so far, suspect I'd like a little more light to the sides for those twisty 90 degree turn trails we have in Minnesota (I'm not kidding - they're really like that!).
Being that I just bought the 900, I wonder what I should do with it. Hmm. My one disappointment is that there's no talk of being able to have more control over light output like the Niterider 1200. And I'm not necessarily surprised, but I keep hoping someone will come out with a light where you can turn on and off an actual cutoff, so I can use it riding on trails without hitting oncoming pedestrians in the face with the light, but turn it off for mountain biking and such.
