Title: LEDRider LED Floods and Spots - ST.n discount
Post by: Justin on October 11, 2013, 12:11:29 am
Update 10/14: New product posted below, LED Mini Lights (https://www.sport-touring.net/forums/index.php/topic,80247.msg1888437.html#msg1888437). Also, our new shipment of LR4 floods now features the XM-L U2 chip which is the latest, most efficient bin. Translation, 40-50 more Lumens per chip driven with the same current :)

Update 10/19: LR6 series long range LED spots added below. (https://www.sport-touring.net/forums/index.php/topic,80247.msg1890335.html#msg1890335)

Original Post below:

Howdy ST.n folks :)

The first order of our new LR4 LED Floods arrived today, and I wanted to offer them to friends here on ST.n first.  

LR4 features listed below:

Heavy Duty Mounting Hardware Included
4x Cree XML U2 LEDs
Custom Engineered Mirrored Reflector for a Focused Beam
3000+ Lumens
2 Amps
12-36 Volts DC Input
IPX7 Waterproof
100% Aluminum Housing
Thermal Protection
Shatter proof, Scratch Resistant Ultra Clear PMMA lens
CE Certified
54mm/74mm/18mm (Diameter/Length/Mounting Standoff)
Compatible with all PWM 12v LED Dimmers (Skene Etc)

Full details on our new site: http://ledrider.com/shop/?model_number=LR4  (Work in progress :))

I'm very pleased with these lights compared to my existing quad cree XML LED flood lights from other vendors. The reflector has a better design for a more focused beam, and I find them more visually appealing. Also, heavy duty mounting hardware is included free, instead of an extra $$ option like other brands.

Overall a much sturdier feeling light, stronger mounting hardware, and a cleaner look.

Any questions, please post or PM. Special coupon code for ST.n members is "STN15" - you can order using the store URL above. Special pricing is $80 each right now, plus another 15% off for ST.n members.

Thanks for looking!

Looks to be for one light.  From the website...

The LED Rider LR4 Flood's 4 Cree XML T6 emitters put out over 3000 Lumens of bright white light. The state of the art optics design ensures the LR4 throws more light where you need it, than any other comparable light on the market. Sold individually.

Can you PM me (or email customer-service AT ledrider.com) your address so I can look into shipping costs? I haven't shipped to Canada yet, but it shouldn't be a problem.

Actually, just go ahead and place an order on our site. We're not setup yet for international shipping, but that's our problem :). We'll cover any additional costs.

VFRide - you're shipment went out today. Shipping was pretty reasonable to CAN. Thanks for you business  :thumbsup:.

FYI for others. We've managed to run out of stock on the LR4's before our new shipment got here. We'll have new goodies by Friday, or Monday at the latest.

Howdy folks - we just added the LR6 series LED spots to the web site. The LR6 series lights couple Cree XM-L T6 LEDs with large reflectors to throw a true long range spot pattern. The beam pattern on all LR6 models is 15 degrees. All LR6's have a far reaching beam, with much less near field glare than other LEDs.
 
 
LR61: http://ledrider.com/shop/?model_number=LR61 (http://ledrider.com/shop/?model_number=LR61)
Model Number: LR61 Spot
1x Cree XML T6 LEDs
Large Reflector for Long Range Spot Beam
850+ Lumens
.85 Amps
10-30 Volts DC Input
IP67 Waterproof
100% Aluminum Housing
Thermal Protection
Shatter proof, Scratch Resistant Ultra Clear PMMA lens
CE Certified
50.5*50.5*80mm
Compatible with all PWM 12v LED Dimmers (Skene Etc)
LR61 and LR62 model lights can be joined together with included hardware.
 
This little light is a great bang for the buck at $40 each.

LR62: - http://ledrider.com/shop/?model_number=LR62 (http://ledrider.com/shop/?model_number=LR62)
Model Number: LR62 Spot
2x Cree XML T6 LEDs
Large Reflectors for Long Range Spot Beam
15 Degree Beam
1500+ Lumens
1.2 Amps
10-30 Volts DC Input
IP67 Waterproof
100% Aluminum Housing
Thermal Protection
Shatter proof, Scratch Resistant Ultra Clear PMMA lens
CE Certified
110*91*61.5mm
Compatible with all PWM 12v LED Dimmers (Skene Etc)
LR61 and LR62 model lights can be joined together with included hardware.
 
I run the LR62 on my FJR endurance/rally bike, along with a set of the LR4 Floods. Like all lights in the LR6 series these throw a tights 15 degree spot way down range. The large reflectors also cut back on the near field glare with typical LED designs. Price: $55.00

LR64:  http://ledrider.com/shop/?model_number=LR64 (http://ledrider.com/shop/?model_number=LR64)
Model Number: LR64 Spot
4x Cree XML T6 LEDs
Large Reflectors for Long Range Spot Beam
15 Degree Beam
3400+ Lumens
2.4 Amps
10-30 Volts DC Input
IP67 Waterproof
100% Aluminum Housing
Thermal Protection
Shatter proof, Scratch Resistant Ultra Clear PMMA lens
CE Certified
110*120*92mm
Compatible with all PWM 12v LED Dimmers (Skene Etc)
 
 
Are you brave enough? If you're the kind of guy that would stick a 2.5 Lb HID on your bike, then this is the light for you. These lights aew 4 inches square, and weigh in at 2 Lbs each. 4 huge reflectors focus the 3400 Lumens into a far reaching spot beam.

I'll see what I can find. I remember someone posting them up here before. Have you ever been behind an ambulance with those really bright red LED brake lights? I know fire trucks and other emergency responders have them too.

They really get your attention when they out on the brakes. It would be nice to add an auxiliary brake light on the bike like one of those lights.

FYI Folks - We're back in stock on the LR4's.

Here's some shot's I was able to grab the other night. Bike is on center stand. The fence is @150 feet from bike. Farthest tree in the background is between 400-500 feet. Crappy camera, non scientific 3 foot per pace measuring, for comparative purposes only.

Stock FJR Low Beam (55 watt halogen)

FJR Low Beam + 2 LR4 Floods

In other news, WynPro is working on light brackets for the LR4 for 2nd/3rd gen FJR's. Very impressed with the initial mock-ups  :thumbsup:

I finally got a decent camera to use for a few months and I'm still learning to use it. What I've found is that even with a good camera, it's hard to get a picture to come out exactly as what you see in real life. I've been playing with different aperture and shutter settings in manual mode, and I think I'm getting close. Hopefully these pictures look good on your monitors.
 
Bike was in turnout on right side of road on center stand. Camera was on tripod on the left side of road. 1st tree is at 750 feet, second tree is at 1000 feet. I reset the GPS at the farthest tree and drove up and turned around where I took the pictures: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-c-tgnYwIsB8/UndK8_eavnI/AAAAAAAACnc/pfYmP4xFgpA/s912/IMG_20131102_235944.jpg
 
Note: you can click on the pictures on drop box to zoom in to full size.
 
First shot is stock low beams with +80 Halogens:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/6u9bfo4i5q9ohd6/1low.jpg
 
This is stock highbeams, +80% halogens:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/kkdv8k420lwq46d/2high.jpg
 
This is low beams plus 2 LR4 floods:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/55exx1h6o4fhgc9/3LR4.jpg
 
And just for fun, this is low beams + LR4 floods + LR62 spots:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/vp8b5g4kwiurtzi/4LR4%2BLR62.jpg
 
The more I use the LR4, the more I like it. Unfortunately, when you adjust the camera settings to show the distance of the lights, the close in light looks a lot brighter than it is. Unlike other quad cree XM-L lights on the market, the LR4 doesn't have nearly as much close-in glare, and a farther light throw. If I could only have one aux light on my bike, I think the LR4 is the clear winner.

For those of you that have Gen2 FJR's, Dave at WynPro has designed some awesome mounts for the LR4's

http://i1320.photobucket.com/albums/u535/Winstar333/WynPro/100_0960_zps50aab4b9.jpg

More info on his FJR Forum thread (http://www.fjrforum.com/forum//index.php/topic/155221-wynpro-anti-vibe-light-brackets/).

On another note, we are working on developing a quality, low cost, rotary dimmer that can be used with our LED lights (and just about any other LED that does not have it's own built in dimming circuitry). We opted for the rotary design as it's simple, and does not require the use of a RF dongle that can be lost or have a dead battery. There will be a high beam over-ride on the dimmed setting. At first it will be available in a single 7 amp channel. Once we are happy with the results, we'll expand to a dual channel as well, with independent over-rides, to control multiple lights with their own settings (for example, you could set your left light to 0% with low beams, and your right to 20% - or control multiple sets of lights). I'll post up more details as they become available.

It's hard to depict any sort of lights' effectiveness unless you have a better-than-average camera I've found.  

I'd like to suggest that you grab a GoPro or something comparable and do a video at night - preferably a road with curves.  I think this might go a long way in helping folks see how effective your lights are.

You don't need something sophisticated, you need a camera with full manual exposure capability. Auto exposure will try to average the reflected light in the scene, which will result in different exposures depending on the amount of light, not apples to apples comparisons between frames. A fixed exposure is needed to really compare the output differences.

The pictures linked above were done with manual settings on a Canon Rebel DSLR. I have to get out and do some more one of these days. Since the high for the next 5 days is 21, it'll have to wait.

Right on... that's as good as you can do without digging into the differences between device sensitivities and calculating compensation - the 'average' human eye vs. that specific CCD. It's more difficult with digital because of the significant differences in dynamic range between the eye and typical CCD's and processing algorithms. Conventional (now historic) mid speed color negative film had much more 'natural' dynamic range.
