But if you choose to mount it on the handlebars, the mount is rock solid and attached using a simple thumb screw to tighten or release. It’s quite unobtrusive without the light mounted, but perhaps not quite as graceful as those used by other brands.
The remote control is a great little feature if you use it as a helmet light because you can cycle through the functions without having to reach all the way up on top. That said, it isn’t wireless, so you’ll also need to mount the controller on your helmet, but it gives you a bit more flexibility in where it is. If the light’s mounted to your handlebar then the remote control also means you can change modes without taking your hands off the tops.
There are seven different functions on the LX-760 – overdrive, high, standard, low, flashing, strobe and SOS – and battery length varies according to which one you choose. Perhaps unsurprisingly I found standard to be the one I used most as it offers a good balance of burn time and brightness (340 lumens, 5h 55m). Similarly, the beam pattern is wide enough to offer some peripheral vision but with enough centre focus for clarity while riding at night. The full list of run times can be found on the Moon website but, with brightness ranging from 150 lumens (15h 20m) to the full 760 lumens (2h 20m), it’s a versatile light for either commuting or night riding.
