My Outbound Ultimate DH kit arrived and I’ve had it out for one ride. This lot combines their trail light on the bars with their road light for your helmet
GoPro helmet mount
90 minute ride with 60minute climb at start - had the bars on low and the helmet on medium. Went to high on both for the ride down. Ended the ride at greater than 75% battery left on both (shows as full so I don’t know exactly)
Construction is awesome. Both were solid and didn’t move. Battery stayed in position too,
Helmet light is light enough it didn’t bug me on my Fox Flux
Beam pattern is wicked. The bars (trail) project a wide rectangle across the trail to maybe 20feet infront. The helmet (road) mount slots in above that - not as wide but more square. The two work really well together on the slower tech I was riding.
Cable was long enough to put the helmet battery in the rear pocket of my jacket.
I don’t have any true negatives after just one ride but:
On high, while the two were certainly bright enough, they were not as bright as I expected. I think that this has to do with the beam pattern being dispersed over a broader area- which is why I chose these lights.
Not easy to tell what setting you’re on for the helmet because you can’t see the gauge- took some cycling through to figure it out.
I don’t think that the bar mount (trail) would be enough to ride with alone without a helmet light of some sort.
Shipping from the US meant $40 duty. Total cost for the Ultimate DH kit (bar and helmet) was c$500 ish to my door. I picked it up black Friday sale for us$335
It’s nice having killer lights. Safety first!!!
