The light can be operated directly from the controls on the rear. Alternatively you can use the wired remote control designed to be mounted on the handlebars or stem.
Something very clever goes on with the beam pattern as you change speed. I thought this might just be hype from B&M, but as you increase speed, the beam moves forward lighting up a longer strip in front of you. As you slow down it becomes brighter and more downward facing.
What I particularly like is that because the dynamo charges the internal battery and not the light directly, you get full brightness when stopped (e.g. at traffic lights or when fixing a nightime puncture).
The light does have an extra 'flood' setting that can be used for a limited time for tricky descents and pothole detection. It certainly feels very bright. The manual suggests that under the flood setting, the internal battery will drain faster than it can be recharged via the dynamo, so this is for short bursts rather than default setting.
Finally got my new light wired up and running yesterdayaccordion wrote:Tonyk - that looks good. I'm interested in how easy it is to hook up and how it performs.
