Our highly anticipated Gloworm X1 Light System (950 Lumens) is the second light in the Gloworm range ? designed 100% in NZ. The new X1 is the first bicycle light system powered by the new Cree XM-L2 U2 emitter ? approximately 12% brighter than last years model!

The X1 gives out an astonishing 950 lumens from a unit weighing in at 58g (remote and mount included) and 32mm in diameter. It boasts the same characteristics as the X2 in being waterproof, robust and CNC machined from 6061 Alloy ? No plastic parts here!

The optics are a custom solution designed to provide maximum throw while maintaining a beam pattern that is easy on the eye ? no discolouration, round beam and no artifacts. The kit will include 3 interchangable optics: Flood, Spot, Super Spot.

This tiny unit will utilise the same low profile style mounting solution as the X2 for the helmet, however will not have a bar mount included in the set. Instead our new QR bar mount will be available as an extra accessory. The QR mount will also be compatible with the X2.

The X1 will be supplied with a 2 cell battery, once again containing high capacity Panasonic cells. Its capacity will be 2900 mAh giving a runtime of 2hr 15min on maximum. The 2 cell battery is completely compatible with all Gloworm X-Series lights.

Controlling the X1 will be managed through a remote switch. It will also present the same selectable programmes as its big brother.
