Winter is nearly upon and ready for the night riding season, Exposure Lights have massively ramped up the output of their flagship Exposure Lights Six Pack light, upping it to 3200 Lumens. That’s up from 2000 Lumens last year. That’s a mighty increase, but it needed to be, there’s a lot of competition in the high-end lights market these days.
Despite the massive extra increase in brightness, the Exposure Lights Six Pack light is a tiny bit smaller, though it’s still a chunky light. It’s also the same weight as the current model and is the same price too, £399.
The 2015 range looks like this:
Six Pack – 3200 Lumens – £399
Maxx-D – 2400 Lumens – £345
Tora – 1800 Lumens – £275
Race – 1200 Lumens – £225
Exposure Lights have expanded their novel Reflex Technology to all four lights. The clever technology comprises an accelerometer that senses your speed and adjusts the brightness of the light accordingly. Exposure tell us they have refined the technology so it should adjust a bit more quickly.

Each light also has a brand new backplate with capacitive switching. Press the silver disc and the whole backplate moves a tiny bit, just enough to change the resistance in the circuit and register the touch. They’ve also updated the small screen to an OLED which gives the displayed information much more clarity.
That’s the new bar-mounted light range. Exposure have also added a cool new feature to their Diablo helmet-mounted light. It’s called TAP technology and after switching the light on with the usual button, you can cycle through the different light modes simply by tapping the light unit.
It only takes a light touch to activate it and is going to be much easier than fumbling for the small rubber button with gloves on during a ride, it’s the cool sort of innovation we’ve come to expect from Exposure.
The Diablo provides 1300 Lumens and costs £199.95. The same technology is also available in the 900 Lumen Axis costing £169.95.
