    Ixon IQ Premium Bike Light may be the best Bike Light I've ever seen (Lumotec Cyo Pr)

    I cross posted this in the commuter forum as well, because...well frankly, it has more readers, and I thought it belonged both here and there. :-)

    Check it out - it's the most amazing bike light (for road use) I've used so far. When Peter White's site put up preliminary beam shots I was skeptical, but it really is impressive -

    Nice, I was waiting for a refresh on these lights as it seemed like they used the same emitters for 3+ years in a row. The regular IXON IQ has gone up from 30 to 50 lux and the Premium 80 lux. Would have been nice if they had 3 brightness settings as there is a huge gap between the 10 lux low setting.

    I know what you mean, I find the 10 lux setting to be so low it's useless. While the 80 lux so far I'm finding amazing, the "low power" is "only barely better than nothing". Having 2 settings, but the lower setting being 20 lux or something like that would make far more sense to me.

    Any idea how it compares to the Edelux II?

    According to the Peter White site, the Edelux II is 10 lux brighter (80 lux vs 90 lux, doesn't sound very significant), but uses the same reflector. That's about all I know, unfortunately.
