I'm really excited to have Full-Beam on board as a sponsor for the winter season and beyond. As the nights draw in and dusty trails become a distant memory, it's good to always have a decent bike light on hand.
I opened up the jet black box. Full of excitement and anticipation of what was contained inside. A Night-Nemesis awaited me. It's sleek looks and quality finish was very impressive. I charged her up and headed out into the cold, wet night
The bar attachment supplied bolted on without any troubles and I was away. The battery pack is held in place with 3 clips which you can attach to various places on your bike. I went for a combination of two straps around and top tube and one around the seat tube. The battery pack held secure throughout the whole ride. Even in the most rocky and fast paced sections, the battery pack remained in place.
The cable can be routed neatly along the top tube to prevent any snagging with the velcro strips provided. A nice touch.
The battery cable attaches to the back of the light via a twist and push connector. It slotted nicely into place and the connection was secure.
The light also had Full-Beam's SpeedLED technology which adjusts light output according to the bikes speed. The wire on the left (see picture) feeds down to a sensor which picks up a magnet attached to the front wheel spokes.
The light will adjust automatically without the need for manual input. It's a seriously impressive feature and sets Full-Beam apart from other light brands.
On trail performance was nothing short of exceptional. The light lights up the whole trail, not just what is directly in front on you. The night nemesis punches a sizeable hole trough the dark forest.
It was a wet night and I was thankful for the waterproof casing around the light. With its robust looks Full-Beam assured me it would survive even the most flamboyant of my crashes.
So in summary the Night Nemesis Speed LED provides;
I am really thankful to have Full-Beams' support and their products will help me considerably during my training for the 2016 race season.
