Got a link (that works), a price, or an ADV discount?

How about an action shot?

Wow. $350. For ONE light.

That's a bit rich for me. I'm sure they're good. But $350 for a product that houses 4 $15 LEDs plus some electronics? Yes, you can buy those LEDs for less than $15 a piece (here). Don't get me wrong, someone spent a bunch of time designing the circuitry and the housing to make all this work and then of course there's the manufacturing costs.

For now I'll stick with my candle-bright stock headlamp for the once-in-a-blue-moon time when I'm out after dark on the dirt bike. For others, I'm sure they'll see this as a good deal...

That is a bit rich, BUT....

1) If you're so smart, why aint you rich? Feel free to whip up some competition with those $15 LEDs, your CNC mill, and an injection molding machine. And an EE and board manufacturer.

2) Those $15 LEDs list 260lm output. 260 x 4 ≠ 3600.

Personally, I'll stick with the $100 imports sold elsewhere on this site, but I can't fault someone selling high-end cutting-edge products for asking an appropriate price.

Never claimed that (the smart bit). Not rich either - definitely one of the 99%

Claimed. The spec says they use the CREE XM-L LEDs and the referenced URL shows the highest output LEDs available from CREE is 280lm. So either there's other CREE LEDs that are of higher output being used (likely), or their numbers are sales-speak and not based on anything real-world.

And I don't either. BUT, I can comment on it, can't I

I think we both basically agree: I wish I could justify that kind of dough for a great light! Sorry I sounded snarky.
That's almost twice the output of the cheap ones...

I still want to see a down-the-road pic! 3600lm is 3x the stock headlight on my KLR!

Hey Guys,

The pictures of our new squadron motorcycle light were taken on my personal 2008 RMZ450 and I must say I was absolutely shocked at how bright this light really is. Here is a link to a short video I made with the squadron light (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsBgISkvyrc). Sorry about the quality. I was holding a flip hd camera in my left hand and steering with my right. Plus it was 10:00pm and I didn't want to upset by neighbors too much.

If anyone has any questions about the visibility of the light or technical questions please feel free to ask. Also this is the same Squadron 3"x3" that All German Motorsports is running on their trophy truck.
