Where to buy TIR optics online in Europe?

I currently have an EagleEye X2 which I’m planning to use as my primary bike light since I’m into cycling now. The problem is that the current orange peel reflector which I believe is somewhat of a 20° circular beam which is not exactly very useful for me while riding at night. It sure lights up everything in front of me but it would be really helpful if the beam was more wider than it’s current circular form. So I was searching for a solution and found that there is a striped TIR optic lens/collimator available for the Convoy S2+ which if I’m right is having the same form factor/host of an EagleEye X2. I saw the screenshots of how it changes the beam and I’m really convinced that this will do the job for me.

I currently live in India and since we now have an outright ban on shopping online with Chinese e-tailers, I just can’t buy them from Aliexpress anymore. They stopped shipping as well as accepting payments from my country. So I was thinking are there any sites in Europe that sell these optics? If so then it would be really helpful since I can get them delivered to my friend who lives in Germany who in turn can send them over to me.

for example

But if your German friend re-ships to you then he can order on aliexpress on Convoy store or Yajiamei

Thank you, I didn’t want him to take the trouble of buying it for me.

My Flashlight uses a Cree XML2 U2-1A.
Are you sure the Carclo lens will fit into the convoy host? coz the picture of the lens in convoy store looks a bit different than this lens.
I see that the Carclo ones have like a little tab on one side whereas the ones in convoy store is clean.

Convoy store lens

EDIT:
the dimensions mentioned in the convoy store is
Diameter : 19.7mm
Height : 12mm

Carclo 10192 is
Diameter : 20mm
Height : 10mm

Will these Carclo lens fit inside the Convoy S2+/EagleEye X2 host?

The provided dimensions of the lens seem a bit odd compared to the one shown in Convoy official store.

You’ll need spacer to install triple in S2+. I was just answering question about EU store, not suggesting any particular item. I’m not familiar with their current offering.

Alright, thank you. Those Carclo lenses are also available in my country, although at twice the price.
