    looking for some quick information on a headlight

    Im looking into buying a headlight for my roadbike that i can also use for night time mountain bike rides and as a headlamp when needed.
    there are quite a few options out there but im not looking to spend 120$+ at this time.
    Im wondering what Lumes would be a good option for both and what shape would work better.
    right now im looking at 2 options, a 7000lm x5 cree round light that is low on functions ( only has high / low ) and a 6000lm x3 cree rounded rectangle with more functions ( super bright /high/med/low )
    both of these lights look to be about 1000-1200 lm on low setting then brighter as needed from there.

    any input would be greatly appreciated, and if anyone knows more viable options im open to suggestions.
    would like to order one in the next day or 2 so faster you reply the better.

    Having more modes I think is better.

    4 modes:
