Your riding buddies with lesser systems will thank you, as you can really light up the trail when needed.
I have supplemented the 2800 with a helmet mounted Lumina 750 to fill in shadows and help see around corners. Maybe that's overkill for some, but I'm stoked.
Also I'm happy to be supporting a local San Diego company that makes high quality gear. I stopped by their office to pick up extra velcro straps, which they just handed to me and said "enjoy your rides!".
As with anything in the MTB world, you get what you pay for, and I wasn't about to scimp on lighting

The 2800 Enduro light has great coverage and is simple to operate with the included handlebar remote. There are four brightness levels and the lowest is definitely sufficient for singletrack and fire road ascents. The stronger levels are fine for quick singletrack descents. However, the helmet light is necessary for seeing where your eyes are pointing, and for really letting loose to bomb steep hills.
Also, if you get a flat or drop a chain, you'll be able to repair in the dark without unclipping your light from the handlebar mount and trying to position it on some nearby branch or rock to repair hands-free.
Unfortunately, I didn't realize this particular light does not include a helmet mount. This is because the handlebar remote, which is cabled long enough to fit a 800mm bar (in case you were wondering), would need to be secured somehow on top of your helmet if the light was helmet mounted. If unsecured, the remote would flail around.
The following is also a major drawback to the light: the remote cable ONLY extends from the right side of the main light housing and the remote cable is not really long enough to re-route to the left side of your bars and be close enough to your left thumb for easy operation. It really only works on the right side of your bars if you're running longer width bars. So, you better have some real estate and the right setup on the right bar side to accommodate the remote.
Another drawback to the light (which is complained about in many other Niterider light reviews on various sites online) is the quality of the mounts. These mounts are definitely all plastic, and not necessarily strong composite plastic. While the handlebar mount clamp will fit both 35mm and 31.8mm bars (there are two different length screws included), and the clamp is highly configurable and comes with a non-slip rubber insert, it overall still feels pretty cheap and there are hex head pivot screws that you should definitely avoid over-torquing at all costs :) And, even when feeling tightened adequately, the pivots feel like there's an unacceptable amount of play - i.e, the
My hope is that the compromise is that the mount will ben or break easily in a serious crash, hopefully saving the light itself, and the mounts are obviously easily replaceable, where as the light is expensive. I've read, though, that Niterider is pretty good about replacing light accessories that fail.
Another couple drawbacks, which are really nitpicking at this point, are:
• The power meter on the top of the light housing, consisting of four tiny square green lights in a strip, is quite difficult to read and guage while riding because Niterider uses the internal glow from the LEDs to illuminate the red brightness level selector button adjacent to the level meter lights, which then bleeds through the small green lights and inadvertently also makes them slightly illuminate - even though one or two might be off because the battery level has dropped.
• Last small drawback is the battery pack cable connection point to the light cable. The connection is maintained by uni-directional black connector heads which are male and female oriented, with a slightly raised notch that only allows the connection when both the connectors are very strictly aligned with each other. The male pin connector has the notch and must be inserted into the female connector. The problem I encountered is that both connectors (though there are VERY small tactile raised ridges on both connector housings that help indicate alignment) are colored matte black, which makes them impossible to see without direct light (no gloss finish, so reflective light won't even work), and the connection fit is quite tight to maintain water resistance. So, in a dark environment, you'd be fumbling around to re-connect the light and battery pack cables if for some reason you had to disconnect or the main light got disconnected in a wipeout. Both of these scenarios are fortunately improbable, though, so the issue has only occurred to me when swapping the battery pack and light to another bike in my dimly lit garage. It was more annoying than anything else.
So far I haven't tested out the full duration of the battery pack, as I only rode for two solid hours and I still had two small green power meter lights illuminated, while switching between brightness levels to preserve battery longevity. I'm not going to go out riding without charging the battery pack to full, so I have to assume at minimum the light will definitely last for three hours with good brightness level management.
**I have not tested this light in rain yet, although it's supposed to be pretty water resistant.
