At BrightBikeLights – we believe we’ve found another really fantastic light ! (and we’ve tested it extensively) ….
The RX02 was also reviewed and recommended by SingleTrack (see ‘reviews’ section for full review).
The 1600 lumen StarryLight RX02 has some unique design features making this a great choice for both serious off-road mountain bikers and bike commuters alike.
This is the first light we’ve seen at BrightBikeLights which has an angled dual beam system – one beam for close up in front and one for further away. This is achieved by the offsetting of the angles of the two beams. The result is a ribbon of light in front of the rider – great if you are riding down seriously rock trails at night or riding potholed roads at speed.
The RX02 also features an easily viewable battery level indicator consisting of 4 bright green / red leds segments on the rear of the light.
This is a very compact light unit – it is also tough and very solidly constructed.
Another feature unique to this light is the remote switch. The RX02 features a standard waterproofed switch on the top of the unit but it also features an optional remote switch which can be connected to the rear of the light unit via a small plug in connection. This lead is connected to a weatherproofed rubber strip which can be attached to the handlebars using the supplied velcro. This weatherproofed rubber switch contains FOUR switches – each carrying out the same function of altering the light levels and turning the unit ON/OFF. The fact that there are FOUR switches actually works really well in practice when altering the level in the dark most importantly without the need to remove hands from the bars or brakes.
The RX02 is supplied with a helmet mount for easily mounting onto a cycle helmet.
The RX02 is an excellent light for mounting on to a headstrap (not included but see the ‘Spares’ section) due to it’s lightweight size and compact design.
Supplied with a Solarstorm 4 cell rechargeable li-ion battery pack containing weather resistant screw fit connector between the battery and light unit. The battery pack is weatherproofed in a silicon case and supplied in a fabric case with velcro straps for mounting onto bars or frame. Also available with a high quality six cell extended Samsung battery pack (8400 MaH).
This is a fantastic light system with some unique design features. With 1600 lumens of light directed where you need it due to the dual beam design.
