QECP/Four4th lights test
For our usual midweek night ride this week we were joined by Derek from Four4th lights, as I was keen to test their Holy Moses bar light. The weather forecast said rain would clear, but typically it didnt, in fact it got worse! I met Derek in the car park and quickly attached the Holy Moses onto my bars to accompany my very reliable and well made Exodus head light (3 years old and still as good as new). Derek had gone 1 or maybe 3 up on me! He had 3 of his latest lights, the immensely powerful OMG , each at well over 4000 lumens!! 1 on helmet and 2 on the bars – well I suppose if you own a MTB light manufacturing company, then why not? :-p
Unfortunately along with the rain came the fog, which set in at the highest parts of QECP. It meant using our super powerful, state of the art lights, on lowest setting! Ahh well, it meant going slow for the top half (which given the sodden + slippy conditions I was quite relieved with!) , whilst halfway down the hill we could turn lights back to full bore and appreciate the almost daylight conditions. Glancing back I could see the unmistakable Derek with what looked like Anfield stadium attached to his bars!
As for my test, the Holy Moses is extremely neat for a light/battery combo and has a really secure mounting system. The light and cable never shook lose on the bars, there was no clatter and the width of the beam (which is customizable with different optics from four4th), is just right for my type of riding. As expected, the light is as equally well made as my Exodus, in a solid machined metal casing, unique mini DIN type screw on plug, and large easy button. The battery is in a solid, water tight case which fitted neatly under my 65mm stem. I thought it complemented my Exodus very well, although Derek reckons the combination of Holy Moses and OMG is the perfect match. Overall thoroughly pleased with my upgrade to the Holy Moses and thanks Derek @ Four4th for the test!
