Ni­terider Pro 1400 Race £215

Mountain Biking UK - - WRECKED & RATED -

The Pro 1400 is a trail-bright­en­ing work­horse. Its big plas­tic bat­tery, heav­ily-pro­tected sin­gle-LED head unit and chunky fi­bre­glass-re­in­forced bar mount (which is 35mm com­pat­i­ble and cen­tres the light over the stem) take it over the 500g mark. The in­cluded hel­met mount and fat ca­bles are equally sturdy, and it comes with a life­time war­ranty. While it gives a warm, rea­son­ably wide spread of light, there are a few dis­tract­ing ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties in there and a no­tice­ably fringed pe­riph­ery. Three steady modes and an eight-step fuel gauge make it easy to stretch the de­cent bat­tery life. We’ve had some bat­tery glitches in the dis­tant past but re­cent long-term sets have been trou­ble free. Keep it un­con­nected when trav­el­ling though, as the sin­gle-click but­ton is easy to power on ac­ci­den­tally.
