Niterider’s OLED Lumina are new, adding a digital readout up top so you know remaining battery level and run time per setting. Two models are available, the 600 and 800 with lumen output matching the model name.
Both get 90 minutes to 9 hours runtime on a full charge depending on setting. There’s a new solid output with strobe setting that lays a bright flash over top of a constant beam so you can always see where your going while still getting a safety flash to alert drivers.
Charge times have been reduced to just three hours for a full top off. Retail is $139 and $159 each.
Bar mounts grab on with easy to use rubber straps, and the lights click in and out with a quick release tab, making it easier to pull them on and off for security or charging.
For the rest of the Lumina line, they’ve dropped the 400 and 250, with the latter becoming the Micro 350.
The Pro Series trail lights get the expected annual bump in output for some models. The 1200 (top, left) goes to 1400 lumens, but the 1800 (top, center) stays the same. Race mode lets them run for 12-16 hours at 250 and 200 lumens. Retail is $249 and $299 respectively.
Besides output, the difference between the two models is that the 1400 has a single LED, and the 1800 has three LEDs, but has a lower output per diode to match the 12 hours of run time since it has to power three lights. Both come standard with their 4-cell battery.
The dual beam models start with the new 2800 Enduro (up from 2200 lumens) and includes a thumb switch and the 6-cell battery. The biggest of them all, the 3600, stays same but adds the thumb switch, too, and comes with an 8-cell battery. Retail is $399 and $499 respectively.
At the top of the range is still the $699 Pro DIY that let’s you program lumen output per and run times on your PC, giving you complete control over the settings. Still no Mac version of the software, though.
The larger 6-cell and 8-cell batteries now come with an USB output so you can charge your phone, cycling computer or other accessories simultaneously (or on their own).
Solas tail lights jump to 30 and 40 lumens, with retail at $30 and $40 respectively. The Sentinel, which was introduced last year and beams virtual bike lane lines onto the road via laser, bumps up to 40 lumens of blinking output. All of Niterider’s tail lights get new rubber strap mounts to fit any shape seatpost, aero or otherwise.
The Sabre is new aero tail light whose shape sits flush behind a standard round seatpost. It gets six modes of pulse, flash and steady, plus an amber side light. It, along with
The Lightning Bug USB front light bumps up to 150 lumens.
