Great headlamp, I'm able to ski downhill in the dark full gas!

This light is awesome for running at night. It lights up a wide area.

On a run, on my helmet for my commute, or out early, this is perfect!

Hiking in winter usually means you’re starting and finishing in the dark. We spotted the Light and Motion Solite 250 EX on a couple of mountain bikes in Vail, CO earlier this year and after getting blinded by their 250 lumen output (seriously, think car high beams) it was an easy decision to pick one up. With detachable headlamp straps, bike mounts, and as a standalone system, it is the most versatile flashlight we’ve ever used and now sits ready to go in our packs all year round.

L&M is not a large company, and is made up of around 50 full-time
employees, all working under one roof. This gives L&M the ability to
be flexible in an ever-changing market. “We can update products and
innovate much quicker than our competitors,” explains Jacob. “We can
update to a more efficient LED, reprogram our lights or redesign a
mold to improve assembly workflow. Most businesses would have to
wait out an entire season before they could make changes like that”.

It’s advantages like these that keep L&M competitive in the market.
The feel-good factor of buying local can only get you so far in a market
where consumers are becoming increasingly comfortable buying Asian
made products, whether it’s a $100 light or a $6,000 mountain bike.
Like every other brand, L&M has had to innovate to stay ahead of the
curve.

Evan Chute at ActiveGearReview.com

The first thing I wondered when I received the Light and Motion Solite 250EX, is how bright is this thing?
A standard battery-powered headlamp is often enough to hike with, so is the Solite 250EX enough to run
with? Bike? How about MOUNTAIN bike? With 250 lumens it doesn’t turn the darkness into full daylight,
but it’s plenty bright enough to ride pretty quickly down a hill on your mountain bike with plenty of
visibility to see what you’re doing and where you’re going. Road cycling? No problem either, and unless
the speeds get really fast (maybe 35mph plus) the Light and Motion Solite 250EX offers up plenty of light.
So for running or hiking, this thing would absolutely work perfectly as well. Pro tip: pair this light on your
helmet (aimed further out) with another light on your handlebar (pointed closer in) for the ultimate night
mountain biking experience. One of the best things about the Light and Motion Solite 250EX are the versatile mounting options, which
include a strap-mounted headlamp, bike-mounted light, helmet-mounted light, and handheld flashlight.
The strap mount is easy-peasy, very comfortable, and weighing in under 5 ounces (with light and battery)
means it won’t bog you down when strapped to your head or helmet. The vented helmet mounts are the
same to attach to the handlebars or stem of a bike. Lastly, the light itself mounts directly to the battery,
making a handy hand-held flashlight of sorts. Useful for camping and other activities where you don’t
necessarily need the light attached to your head. The Light and Motion Solite 250EX has great battery life and will fully charge in 8 hours, giving you at
least 4 hours of use at full power (250 lumens) and up to 150 hours in the conservative camp/read mode.
While you’d need an additional battery (or second light) if you were doing an all-night adventure race, I
can personally vouch that the “4 hours on high beams” number is true and should be plenty for even the
longest of after-work rides or runs. The Light and Motion Solite 250EX charges with any micro USB
charger—which is not included with the light. Fortunately, I have tons of electronic gizmos hanging around
the house with a USB plug so this wasn’t an issue. Light and Motion does sell a separate wall plug and you
can also charge it using a portable power pack, solar charging system, the majority of cell phone chargers,
and virtually anything else USB. With a solid battery life, light weight, and versatile mounting options this light is a good choice for the
after-work hiker, runner, cyclist, or mountain biker looking to stay outdoors and active in the dark. So far
it’s proven not only capable, but durable as well. I currently keep the Light and Motion Solite 250EX
mounted to my commuter bike at all times, so I’m never without when going back and forth to work, and
I’ll throw it on a helmet for a weekly after-work mountain bike ride as well. The Light and Motion Solite
250EX retails for $179, which is a bit nicer on the wallet than comparable lights in the $300-400 range.

If you're looking for a light to extend your ride time, or perhaps keep yourself visible for those dark commutes to and from the office, the Solite 250EX from Light & Motion is a solid option worth checking out.

Out of the box, this light comes with three different mounting options. There's a handlebar mount, helmet mount for vented helmets, and headstrap for either hiking or non-vented helmets. The light also clips into the portable battery pack, which makes it easy to use as a handheld flashlight. My light came ready to ride with a partial charge, but I would recommend topping the battery off before you take it for a spin.

For a light with a portable battery pack, they don't come much more compact than this. The battery measures out to be 3 inches long, 2 inches wide, and 1 inch tall. The light itself is more or less 1 inch in length, width, and height. Total weight of the battery, light, and handlebar mount comes in at 4.5 ounces. You probably won't care about the weight too much if you're mounting the light to your bike, but you'll appreciate it if you're using the helmet mount option.

This is a great light that fills a lot of needs. I'll be putting it to use for commuting, night riding, camping, and cross-country skiing.

As summer turns to fall, some of us start to get this creeping feeling while trying to squeeze in bike rides after work: We notice that it’s getting dark earlier, day by day, and pretty soon we’re riding the last bit of trail into the parking lot. It is not such a happy time.

You have three options:

1. Retire to your garage to wax and tune your skis.
2. Get depressed and start streaming entire seasons of your favorite TV shows so you can watch them when it’s dark outside.
3. Get a better light for your bike.

Light & Motion launched the Solite 250 this fall to help with option #3. I tested it on night rides on a couple of familiar trails. At 250 lumens, it’s bright enough to ride reasonably fast downhill on trails that don’t have huge drops. It has 2.5 hours of charge on the high setting, which is enough for a full ride starting in the dark and ending in the dark, covering you before work and after work as we make our way into the short days of winter. On lower settings, of course, it lasts way longer—up to 100 hours on its lowest “reading” setting.

I used the bike/helmet mount kit (which Light & Motion sells separately for $15) and found it easy to put on two different helmets. The USB-recharged battery back is surprisingly lightweight (the entire headlamp weighs a little over five ounces), and the headlamp is designed to be used a number of different ways (strap-mounted headlamp, bike-mounted light, helmet-mounted light, handheld flashlight), but it’s fairly bulky for my personal general-use-headlamp needs — backpacking, a just-in-case light for long rock climbing days, trail running. That said, it’s a great light to mount on a helmet or handlebars or keep in my mountain bike pack for late nights and early mornings. It’s much less expensive than super-bright bike lights in the $300-$400 range, and while it won’t get you through all the night laps in a 24-hour race, for the motivated after-work and before-work rider, it’s a good deal.
