Nightride Bicycle/Scooter Handle Flashlight Combo Setup

Hello fellow 2 wheelers or 1 depending on insurance coverage. Big Smile For night bike/scooter riding, wanting to get an idea on flashlight combos that people here might have on their handlebars? Not bike lights but flashlights.
For me I’m thinking…

1) S2+ with Samsung LH351D, 4000K ( tilted down @ 50’ ground beam spread)

2) Convoy C8+, 5000K ( mounted straight for spot @ 50’ and beyond)

I’ve got a electric scooter coming and will mount 2 lights in the handle bars.

Sounds like a nice combination, just a red bike flasher for the back
What’‘s inside the C8+?

The C8+ has the SST40, 5000K. It’s gotta be light. Plus it’s quite a thrower.

Well I always got my BC30 with BLF A6 and some headlamp too, SP40 or HC30 on my helmet. Got bracket also for MF01 Mini which probably sees some use later this year.

I got the Astrolux H01 headlamp. Gonna try it out but I wear a full face helmet though. I also have the MF01 Mini. Two actually @ SST20 4000K and 6500K. Anyone ever use the silicon flashlight straps like in the picture?

I’ve tried using a Convoy S2 back when I didn’t have a mount. It works… ish. Give me the flat beam of the Lumintop B01 any day over useless vertical spill.

I have not tried the silicone strap mount you linked, but this style works well.

You can find clones on Chinese websites as well.

Main reason for picking S2+ is I already have bunch of TIR optics to try. Plus I have few 3000K-4000K leds to try too. That Amazon one looks pretty good. For sure you’ll be able to wrap a flashlight up tight!
