Testing…the Exposure Joystick Mk 6 front bike light – product review – 4/5

   Words by Aaron Scott

♥♥♥♥ 4/5

The Exposure lights worked great at the Plymouth 24-hr MTB event - we have these on our demo fleet at our stores

The Exposure Joystick has become a classic all-in-one bike light. It's light weight, with a high-power beam and some very smart design features, and it's just as good for evening commuting as it is for extreme night off-roading. Speaking of which...our staff rider Wiggy has been riding 24-hour endurance mountain bike events all season with one strapped to his head, so we figured he could tell us a thing or two about them! 

"Having been cycling for some 15 years now and most of it spent pounding the roads of the UK come rain or shine I have used a lot of bicycle lights, but during the last 2 years participating in 24hr team mountain bike events a whole new level of bike light was needed.

The Exposure Joystick is great for commuting or night training rides on the lanes.

A light on your handlebars is a prerequisite, but even more so is a light on your helmet; enter the Joystick from the high-end light producers Exposure. Its easy-to-fit clamp will fit on any helmet and with a weight of just 86 grams makes it almost unnoticeable during those night laps. For those night training rides around the roads and woods it works really well, having a wide beam and a 325 lumen power output, but the ability to turn your head and look around tight switchbacks is a massive added benefit to night rides. With a battery life of up to 24 hours it gives you great confidence that you won’t be left in the dark during your rides.

As far as I can see the only down side to the Exposure Joystick is the price. But if you’re a keen cyclist and want to experience night riding to its - and your - full potential then you are paying for true quality. A very solid build with internal rechargeable battery will see it last a lifetime.
