NiteRider Pro 1500 LED Race Light $0.00
May scorch the lenses of cameras at the finish line.
Is there a greater feeling of freedom than riding deserted singletrack after dark? The silence and the mysteries around each bend put these experiences at the top of our list of favorites. The NiteRider Pro 1500 LED Race Light makes it possible to ride at speed and in safety because its output ensures that the trail will be reliably lit.
Make no mistake, the Pro 1500 LED Race Light is a heavy hitter in the illumination field. At full blast, you can count on a whopping 1500 lumens lighting your way. NiteRider has more than doubled the output from the previous year's models by partnering with Cree, specialists in LED lighting advancements, to develop a proprietary emitter for NiteRider's mega powerful, heavy duty lights. And though it packs all this power, it's still lightweight at 435 grams for the whole system.
The Race model can boast such a gram conscious figure because it uses a super lightweight 4 cell Li-Ion battery. Lithium-Ion batteries have become the industry standard by virtue of their excellent energy-to-weight ratios and slow loss of charge when not in use. And with an easy 4.5 hour recharge time, you can have the light up and running again in time for the next ride. The rate at which the power of the battery is drained hinges on what setting you dictate for your beam. Since the Race version comes with three settings as well as a flash mode, you can run it at full 1500 lumens for 1.5 hours. The medium setting puts you at 900 lumens for 3 hours, while the most economical setting still gives you a more than adequate 450 lumens for 6 hours.
The NiteRider PRO 1500 Race Light comes with a helmet mount and a handlebar mount which will fit bars up to 31.8mm. An extension cable is also included so that you can carry the battery in your backpack while mounting the lamp unit on your helmet.
- Run time ranges from 1.5 hours to 6 hours depending on brightness
- DIY software allows you to customize your own lighting sequences and modes per your needs
- System includes docking station, handlebar mount, helmet mount, and extension cable
What community has to say
I got this because I was sick of cars cutting me off on my rides. It is super bright, and gets me noticed. Battery seems to last a little less than the claimed amount, but is still close. I ride with it in the mornings on medium (still plenty bright), and in the afternoons I use the flash mode. I only wish that the battery was slightly more convenient to mount, or had a cable long enough to run from my handle bar to my back pack. Can't wait to do some night riding on the trails!
Supernova, it Is
When I first brought this light out for a trail ride my buddies started to laugh because this light is ridiculously BRIGHT. So much so, I have to run the Pro 1500 on medium power (900 lumens) mostly. Believe when I say 900 lumens is VERY bright as is. I only kick in high power when on the downhills. I've squeezed out close to 3 hours out of one battery charge by doing so. The Pro 1500 model I have does'nt have the fancy computer tuning light capabilities which makes it much more affordable. Low-med-high works just fine and saves $$$. This light has three CREE LEDs. It's the brightest and most efficient type of LEDs available on the market to date. The light spread is the best I've seen out of the plethora of light models my buddies are riding with.
