Carry your own daylight.
Daylight Savings Time: the enemy of devoted after work dirt hounds everywhere. It arrives each year, as much as we hope it won't, casting us in a golden hour glow before we've begun our commutes home from work. Most of us accept the inevitable change of seasons, but if you're not ready to kick your trail addiction for the winter, you're going to need a serious light. If you'll be riding without a hint of light in the sky, invest in the Exposure Lights Maxx-D Mk9 Headlight. It emits a powerful beam that will illuminate singletrack long after sunset.
Exposure hasn't traditionally been a big name in the cycling industry, but the brands considerable experience in marine, diving, and emergency lights demonstrates that it knows illumination. The Maxx-D is one of its most potent products, featuring LED bulbs housed in durable aluminum that are capable of throwing up to 3,200 lumens onto the trail in front of you. That's no weak, wavering beam.
That much light doesn't last forever, so to get your battery to hang on for more than just a ride, switch it out of Reflex Plus and into low mode, where 2,350 lumens will still provide ample visibility. If you'd rather let the light take charge, trust its Reflect technology to factor in gradient, acceleration, and cornering forces when it customizes an output ideal for your ride conditions.
Exposure includes an OLED status display on the light, making sure you have access to information about what mode you're riding in as well as how much battery you have left—especially useful when you're trying to see if you have enough juice to squeeze in another lap. Use the solid aluminum mount to lock the Maxx-D onto your bars, and you'll be riding until the snow flies.
