Exposure Lights MaXx-D 4 LED – it’s the daddy

Exposure MaXx-D 4 LED light
The march of LED lights moves ever forward. I think it’s generally the case now that high power LEDs have won the lighting arms race for Mountain Bike applications, not excepting Dave’s unique light solutions.

In practical terms it’s now common to find yourself riding in shadow even when using a HID such is the output of LEDs from following riders. But, with a new winter season approaching, so new models are released.

Exposure Lights are staying quiet themselves but Bikemagic reports the sighting of a 4 LED Exposure MaXx-D (for Daddy) at the recent Merida TransWales, looking for all the world like one of those 1,000,000 candlepower torches from Halfords strapped to the bars. I’m sure in the flesh it’s much more discreet but it certainly promises to give Hope’s 4 LED Vision light a run for it’s money since it looks as though it uses the same lens arrangement.

Guess it comes down to whether you like the CNC’d look and separate battery of the Hope Vision or the more integrated approach of the Exposure. Either way you’ll be toting a pretty hefty lux punch, for this year at least…

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years then a 2016 YT Industries Jeffsy 29er, he now rocks a Bird Aether 9 and a Pace RC-627.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.

    Hope HID or Hope Vision 4 LED?

    What’s the best lighting set up between the Hope HID and the Hope Vision 4 LED? For the LED you could substitute the Exposure MaXx-D as well.
