The impressive new Eyc (rhymes with "bike", of course) headlights from Busch+Müller are super compact, light, and affordable. They use the new Lumotec "IQ2" reflector technology to throw a beam that is similar to the original Schmidt eDelux light (which was state of the art for lighting just a year or so ago) at less than half the price.
The asymmetrical beam puts the light on the road where it is needed, and not in the eyes on oncoming riders, pedestrians, or motorists.
The Eyc is plenty bright for spirited riding on dark roads.
Two models are available:
- The Eyc N Plus has a simple on/off switch and a stand light that shines when you stop (like at a stop light). It glows for several minutes and is a significant safety feature.
- The Eyc T Senso Plus is the more expensive model which has an on/off switch with an incorporated light level sensor and daytime running lights. When it is "on" in bright light, LED's glow to make you more visible (think "be seen" lights). When the light level is low, the main LED automatically comes on for greater illumination for navigating ("to see" lighting).
