You've learned the hard way that your trusty headlamp, usually a champ on night hikes, has an uncharacteristically hard time keeping up with you and your trail bike on dark singletrack. To make sure you can actually see on your next ride, outfit your dirt companion with Exposure Lights' Axis Mk4 Headlight instead.
Sitting comfortably in the middle range of trail lights in price and power, the Axis Mk4 won't project a spotlight into every crevice of each shadowy root lattice ahead of you; rather, its 1000-lumen beam preserves some of the excitement of night riding that most of us are reluctant to give up. If you're racing, you may want to upgrade to one of Exposure Lights' more powerful models, but if continuing your after work trail rides into the fall is the goal, the Axis Mk4 is a great place to start. That's not to say it's weak—its brighter than typical car headlights—just that there are stronger models out there for longer, darker rides.
Exposure packs a host of intuitive technology into its lights' tiny bodies, and the Axis Mk4 is no exception. CNC-machined aluminum housing shields the light's LED bulbs and the rest of its internals from the elements without adding unnecessary weight to its lithe silhouette. Unlike much of the Exposure line, the Axis comes with the brand's new TAP Activated Power setting, which changes mode in response to a tap on your helmet or the light's body to make mid-ride beam adjustments less of an interruption when you're trying to stay on your line. Expsoure includes both helmet and handlebar mounts with the Axis Mk4, which are both equally easy to set up with the light's cable-free design, and features like a fuel gauge and Intelligent Thermal Management keep you up-to-date on battery life and prevent overheating.
