Detour Bike Light
Detour Bike Light
Outbound's original Road Edition set the bar high for the last several years. So they were challenged on how to improve it.
Right away, we've ditched the large battery pack. This is all internal, self contained, USB-C rechargeable, and slim enough to fit in your pocket. Then they fine tuned the heck out of the beam pattern. Extremely smooth and progressive light field from the front of your tire all the way to where you are looking. Outbound also added sidemarker lights to help with visibility from the side, much like on cars.
Outbound incorporated their quick-release fiberglass-reinforced nylon mount that they, ahem, “borrowed” from those clever camera guys to keep everything pointing in the right direction and easy to put on and take off with one hand.
Proudly and capably made in Chicago IL.

What is adaptive mode? Nothing too fancy, it is just the default mode when the light is turned on. It stays on high for about 5 minutes, and over the course of 30 minutes it will very slowly reduce brightness to medium mode while your eyes ADAPT to the darkness. Letting you get more runtime, without noticing a thing by tricking your brain. All other modes are solid output so you know what you are getting at any time.
