The leader of the pack.
On a dark and dusty trail, 50 miles from nowhere, lies a path of untouched dirt that is hungry for your tires. The only problem is, your 9-5 work week just doesn't give you the time to get there before dusk falls and the coyotes start to howl. Embrace your inner wild animal and fly down the mountain like a Tasmanian devil with the Light and Motion Taz 2000 bike light. With 2000 lumens you won't have a problem lighting up the night as you storm down the trail with a pack of wild dogs at your heels who have decided that the dirt-machine with two wheels is their new master. Let them worship your dust as you roll into berms at high speed and launch yourself down rock gardens.
Optical designed lens offers a flooded beam that illuminates the lower part of the trail closest to your wheel, and spotlight brings light to the dark world unfolding in front of you for better depth perception. Certified to be waterproof up to 1 meter, the Taz 2000 will be trustworthy on stormy nights just as much as the clear, crisp, star-coated nights of summer. It mounts easily to your handlebars or helmet with included mounting systems, and an internal battery pack will keep it rolling for up to 6 hours on low or 1.5 on high. When the battery is drained, simply plug it in to recharge and you'll be good to go for another adventure tomorrow night.

Reference light for MTB
There are a handful of companies that make really good bike lights, but Light & Motion is universally regarded as one of the best by bike shop employees and experienced riders. There is a reason for this.
L&M is a cool independently owned company that specializes in cycling. Their lights are engineered, assembled, and serviced in the USA (near MTB epicenter Santa Cruz, CA). Great design, performance, experience, and quality.
Pros: For self-contained MTB lights, the Taz (great name) is one of the best looking and best performing lights available. I have found that a multi-bulb (wide throw) light is best to effectively illuminate the width of the trail and all the twists and turns involved in trail riding. This light features top-of-the-line Cree illumination and is extremely high quality all around.
3 hours of light at 1000 lumens will get you through most night trail rides. By the way, 1000 lumens is a lot of light!
Cons: None. Price? You get what you pay for.
A great light.
Arrives in Lock Out Mode
It may seem like the light does not work when you first get it, it does, it's just in lock out mode. Per L&M Instructions:
"Travel lockout mode is a way to lock your light off so that it will not accidentally turn on in your bag. This will help to preserve battery life. The lockout mode is crucial with the Taz because of the high lumen output. If the light accidentally turns on in your bag, it can generate enough heat to melt the lens.
To unlock press and hold the power button and secondary button down at the same time until the indicator light blinks green 3 times. Now your light is ready to be powered on. The indicator light is located in the power button."
