Product Spotlight: The 100-Lux IQ-X Headlight from Busch and+ Müller: even, bright and wide

Customers often ask what is special about the B&M lights I use, recommend and sell for HP Velotechniks and Cruzbikes. A picture is worth a thousand words, perhaps. The photo above shows the even, bright and wide throw of light from a Busch + Müller (B&M) Lumotec IQ-X. The cones are about 5 yards apart.

With its state of the art optics, the IQ-X from Busch + Müller has made it possible to break the 100 Lux barrier for Dynamo Headlights, making the IQ-X, at 100 Lux, the brightest dynamo powered bicycle headlight. In addition, this high-end headlight emits an extensively wide beam pattern that is superbly even, bright and wide.

In addition, the light assembly is as attractive — don’t you agree? — as your HP Velotechnik or Cruzbike bike or trike. The CNC alloy housing doubles as a heat sink, which helps keep the LEDs cooler and, therefore, brighter. Side visibility is ensured by allowing light to emit via the lateral slits in the housing. The light switch is embedded in a ring of blue light at the rear of the housing. Includes a sensor-controlled Ride Light and stand light.
