There are certainly bigger, more powerful lights out there that produce 1000, 1500, and even more Lumens, but they’re also heavier, require a separate battery mount, and of course are more costly. We’re not saying they’re a waste of money (editor’s note: I love my 1000 Lumen Serfas), but they are a very different product.
Last week we featured the Serfas True 550 USB headlight, and pointed out that it can get you through most dark riding situations. But what if you’re riding beyond ‘most’ dark situations and into the deep unknown of night biking?
Comparatively the True 750 pictured above is built in essentially the same package and with the same features as the True 550 but with, you guessed it, 200 additional Lumens. Like its smaller counterpart it has interchangeable lenses for standard or wide beam patterns, a USB or wall charge option, and a handlebar and helmet mount.
At its brightest setting it lasts for about 1 1/2 hours while at the lowest setting (160 Lumens) it lasts a whopping 7 1/2 hours (run time is lower in really cold situations).
At $180 this is still a very reasonable price for a light with these functions, especially considering how bright it can shine. Actually, it’s a phenomenal price – for those of us who have been around for a bit it’s astounding how much better headlights have become and how much lower the prices are when compared to just a few years ago.
We have a few of the 750 and 550 Lumen Serfas models in stock now so feel free to check ’em out anytime (say, before the evenings get shorter this Sunday).
