We caught Light & Motion last year for an initial review of their 150 and 250 lumen head lights. Although those provide great lighting, this one is the whopper. The Urban 500, as the name explains, packs a 500 lumen punch. It weighs in at 112g and mounts on your handlebars. The safety light on the side is a nice feature. It blinks yellow at cars in your peripheral. The Urban 500 has 4 power settings:
- High – 1.5 hours
- Medium – 3 hours
- Low – 6 hours
- Flash – 18 hours
Lodged in it is a 1 cell Lithium Ion battery. A battery charge indicator is featured so you can know beforehand whether or not it is going to be a rough ride home. The pricing is $159. Check it out at Light & Motion’s Website. Click more to see how bright the Urban 500 is…
Featured is a 60ft beam test in a terrifying cave. In addition to the massive lumen output, I speculate that they are also demonstrating the Urban 500’s vampire-repelling capabilities.
