You should just be aware that you're losing a very significant amount of light by prioritizing the look over the light. (Not that you shouldn't do it, I'm to lazy to ask about all your priorities, just that you should be aware).
The Lumotec Classic is 25 lux
light. The Lumotec Cyo Premium is an 80 lux
light. The Schmidt Edelux II is a 90 lux
I personally don't think anything with lower light output than the older Cyo (non-premium) is good enough for road riding at 60 lux - . I might be picky, but 25 lux is a serious shortage of light in my opinion.
Here's the Lumotec Lyt, a 25 Lux light -
This is the Schmidt Edelux II at 90 lux -
And both of these lights are going to look dimmer
than their pics when you're riding anywhere with city lighting or ambient lighting. In other words, that's the brightest beam you'll ever see out of a 25 lux light.
