The night can be a formidable barrier to cyclists. Even if traffic isn't a problem, unexpected changes in road and trail conditions in total darkness can make cycling downright scary. The solution? Powerful lighting.
Bontrager has been producing quality headlights for years, and the Ion Elite R is powerful headlight for a wide range of cyclists looking to ride at night. With a maximum output of up to 1000 lumens, the Ion Elite R will make fast road descents and technical trails clearer and safer. The output is also adjustable, with 650 lumens for up to 3 hours and 350 lumens for up to 6 hours. One-button operation makes changing modes simpler and safer when toggling between them on the fly.
Plenty of street lights, but still want to be seen? The Ion Elite R can run a nighttime flash pattern for up to 26 hours. A more intense daylight flash pattern can run for up to 22 hours on a full charge. On that setting, the Ion Elite R can be seen for up to 2KM/1.2 miles away! CREE produces the LED element, ensuring excellent quality and durability over the life of the light.
On-bike installation is equally simple, with a tool-free bracket that adjusts for handlebars from 25.4mm up to oversized 35.0mm found on current mountain bikes. Installing onto a helmet? Bontrager also produces a Blendr helmet mount for higher light positioning for technical off-road terrain.
The Ion Elite R boasts an internal Lithium-Ion battery that is fully rechargeable with the included micro-USB cable.
