Supernova E3 Pro Terraflux Generator headlight w/Fork crown mount BLACK
The asymmetrical lens offers a non-blinding beam ideal for use on roads and in cities. The multimount mounting is very versatile. It can be fitted on bicycles with disc brakes, v-brakes and most cantilever brakes.
The E3 Pro can be mounted on any fork with a central 6mm hole. For bikes with road style caliper brakes already attached there, we recommend the handlebar-mounted version (E161-B). For road bikes with Shimano shifters, we recommend the central handlebar mount (E780) to place the light higher than the cables.

This unit was purchased for a touring bke and had just a little ove 2200 miles on it in three years. I had just transferred the unit to another bicycle that I use regularly in and about [...]. I noticed condensation inside on the lens after the latest rains and opened up the unit to dry things out a bit. I also noticed that a spring inside had begun to corrode. Once it was re-assembled it stopped functioing. Now I'm not an idiot and I know I didn't "do" anything detrimental to the light when it was transferred or by simply opening it up.The jury is still out until I hear what SuperNova has to say about waranty and what not. This is one complex little unit and if this is an example of what *might* happen on a long tour or how this thing acts in the rain? I'm not so sure I can recommend it all that highly. Quite frankly I expected a lot more for the money and at this point I am very disapponted.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
