    #TeamRutland | Chris's Moon X Power 950 Light Review

    Words by #TeamRutland ambassador Chris Teagles.

    Riding in the dark can transform how you see your local trails, making every turn feel new and faster than ever.

    Moon X Power 950 Front Light - A Review

    Winter is coming, with the recent weather it feels like its been here a while but with the clocks having just gone back now feels like a perfect chance to be talking about lights. Many riders want to head out after work and get some miles in before heading home. Lights are a very important thing to consider when riding in low light conditions. Off road there is more to think about, with lumens, throw, spread and concentration along with run time and durability too.

    Moon-Light-1

    The Moon X Power 950 is a battery pack unit with some very secure and well designed cables connecting the battery unit with the light. Securing it on your frame is simple and the rubber covers protect your frame from any rubbing. Cable length is great with a longer cable supplied in the case if required. The bar mount is slightly limiting with a belt buckle type attachment meaning it can sometimes feel like its too tight or too lose but the rubber strap grips well and feels secure.

    Moon-Light-2

    The quoted run time of 2 hours on full power (950 Lumens) is pretty spot on for local night rides. With good spread illuminating the trail to maximise confidence at lower speeds and enough throw to give you a god idea of what is coming up. For technical rides at trail centres with longer ride times I would want a bit more power and ideally a second light on my helmet.

    For keeping you safe and providing some punchy light to get you home when the light drops this light is perfect. Having used the light in some pretty terrible weather conditions it holds up well and wasn’t affected by the rain at all. The single button works well and means no faff and simple operation.

    Moon-Light-3

    Lights can range from very cheap to eye wateringly expensive and buying lights that suit the type of riding you do and the budget you have is really important. This light is great for XC rides and getting you home safe, and coupled with a helmet light would be a perfect pairing. In the deepest darkest woods I would want something with a bit more punch and Moon have plenty of products available to suit every need.

    Riding bikes started two years ago, as a new way to keep fit and quickly it developed into a great way to escape sitting at my desk, and an amazing way to see more of the world. Despite living in the rather flat Northamptonshire I am a keen mountain biker and whenever time allows I am in the car, heading to Scotland, Wales or the Peak district. I love the adventure and variety of a natural ride but it’s always great to hit a trail centre and revel in fantastic man-made berms, jumps and drops. Getting on my bike and turning my legs clears my mind like nothing else. I love the connections I’ve made and the people I have experienced some truly amazing adventures with.

    I don’t think there is anything quite the same as pointing my bike downhill and threading my way through some sweeping singletrack, rocky bridleways or rooty woodland. It’s one of the best things in the world and I love sharing that experience with other people. Over my relatively short time mountain biking I have inspired other people to get out on their bikes - sharing my love for this sport is really important to me and I can’t wait to inspire more people to join me. I’m a firm believer that anyone can ride a mountain bike anywhere in the world, it’s not all about fancy kit and amazing trails, it’s about getting out there and having fun.
