Manufactured in the UK, Exposure has many decades of experience in making some of the brightest lights available, and doing so without the need for external battery packs or wiring.
Their ability to combine amazing brightness and long burn-times with the convenience of a self-contained light has made them a hit with mountain bikers, roadies and commuters alike.
While being able to see clearly on a pitch-black night has long been a drawcard for Exposure lights, the safety benefits of using them during daylight hours is sometimes overlooked. Daytime running lights are now commonplace on modern cars and well-designed bike lights can markedly improve visibility and safety for daytime cycling too.
In addition to their super-high-powered off-road lights, Exposure has a number of models that are optimised for road riding with features that make them ideal for commuting and training, regardless of whether it’s daytime or after dark.
The Exposure Strada Mk10 Road Sport (RS) is one such example. It has a dual beam pattern that has been adapted for road use with a distinct cut-off that reduces glare for incoming vehicles in low-beam and a spot that illuminates way up the road for fast and dark descents.
It also incorporates a clever ‘AKTIV’ sensor; this detects oncoming headlights and automatically dips the high beam, then turns it back on once the traffic has gone passed—it’s all automated, so you don’t need to take your hands off the bars!
With a maximum output of 1,200 lumens, the Strada Mk10 weighs just 199g and offers run-times of between two and 36-hours depending on the modes selected. Being a self-contained unit, it’s super convenient and easy to fit via a tool-free quick release.
It also incorporates an easy-to-read fuel gauge and there’s an optional remote switch that can be placed within easy reach to change modes. Using the SPT+ port, the built-in 5,200mAh battery can even be used to charge other devices. It really is a feature-packed and high-tech unit that will retail for around $530.
Backing the Strada up Blaze Mk2 ensures cyclists will be seen by passing motorists, regardless of the light conditions.
Pumping out 80 lumens of red light in a 240-degree halo, the Blaze Mk2 is visible from a kilometre away, even in broad daylight. Run-times range between six and 48 hours and the compact 77g unit straps to any diameter seatpost via a simple but secure O-ring system.
As with other Exposure lights, it’s solidly built from 6063 aluminium and for $180 it presents excellent insurance when riding on busy roads.
