Magicshine Ultimate MTB bike lights combo kit, with MJ-900 helmet light and Monteer 6500 handlebar light. The Monteer 6500 does most of the heavy lifting by offering a very well rounded beam with superbly high output for most situations. With its 2600 lumen spot beam and 4000 lumen flood beam, the trail will be lit up clear as day. A helmet light such as the MJ-900 gives the rider an extra degree of control on those tricky technical trails, providing extra definition, diffusing shadows and allowing the rider to spot obstacles not covered by the main light.
Note: Monteer 6500 is Garmin mount compatible, for helmet mounting, a Garmin helmet mount is required.
Media Reviews on Monteer 6500 by Michael Welch,Singletracks——
“A beast of a light, fantastic beam pattern that illuminates even further down the trail.”
“Magicshine’s newly released Monteer 6500 is a beast of a light. I’ve historically taken lumen claims from this company with a healthy grain of salt, but the Monteer may very well be 6500 lumens. Besides being insanely bright, the light comes with a quick-release handlebar mount that uses the same insert-and-turn system as some Garmin devices. It was the only mount that required a Hex key to attach, but once you put in on it won’t budge no matter how rough the trails get.
The Monteer MTB headlight has five LEDs, and three provide a flood light while the other two throw a spotlight further down the trail. You can choose to run the light in spot mode, flood mode, or both, and each setting has four different brightness levels. With all five LEDs burning on high, you’ll see everything in front of you for up to an hour and a half. On the lowest setting, you’ll get 650 lumens of output and a runtime approaching 15 hours.”

“In Sachen Lichtausbeute steht die Magicshine der Lupine kaum nach. Auch sie leuchtet sehr weit und bildet einen breiten Lichtkegel. Ohne den extrem hellen Spot in der Mitte vor dem Fahrer fällt die Ausleuchtung etwas homogener aus, als bei der Alpha.”
“In terms of luminous performance, there are barely any difference between Magicshine and Lupine. The light shines very far and forms a well rounded cone of light. Without causing any visual hotspots for the rider. The beam pattern is somewhat more homogeneous than the Lupine Alpha.”
