- I find dazzling lights annoying when I come towards them
- Dazzled road users are more dangerous to me
- Light shining above the horizon doesn't help me see better
- I want lights that comply with UK law (either BS6102/3 or StVZO)
I'm well aware that the police don't seem to stop cyclists for non-compliant lights. I want legal lights because that's the law, not because the law is or isn't enforced.
At the moment, I'm leaning towards the B&M Ixon IQ Speed Premium. I like the wide, bright beam, the long runtime, and the external battery pack, since I think I could rig a Li-Ion pack to it if there's too much trouble with the OEM NiMH pack.
I'm interested to know if there are others I should consider instead.
