Our latest Collective Reward comes courtesy of Blackburn Design, who are setting up one of our Bikepacking Collective members with a bundle of lights to help see and be seen. One lucky winner will take home a powerful headlight, versatile set of front/rear lights, and a unique headlight that doubles as a headlamp. All total, this giveaway is worth around $300.
Outpost Bike and Camp Light ($60)
New for summer 2019, Blackburn’s Bike and Camp Light doubles as a headlight and headlamp, meaning you’ll never again have to find creative ways to strap your bike’s front light to your helmet when you arrive at camp only to realize you’ve forgotten your headlamp. Its unique mounting system makes it easy to swap between duties and it puts out an impressive 400 lumens of light on its brightest mode. It also features a pull-out silicone lampshade that brings the light sown to a soft, ambient glow.
Countdown 1600 Front Light ($160)
The powerful Blackburn Countdown 1600 packs in (you guessed it) 1600 lumens of off-road power, flooding even the darkest trails with light. It features a backlit digital display that tells you precisely how many minutes of runtime remain on each of its six power modes, ranging from 12 hours on strobe to 1.3 hours on blitz mode. Like the other lights in this giveaway, it’s USB rechargeable and fully charges in four hours.
2’Fer-XL Front or Rear Light Set ($85)
Blackburn’s versatile 2’Fer-XL is the larger version of their popular 2’Fer light. It serves double duty as a 40 lumen rear light or 200 lumen front light and features great side visibility in both modes. Using its clever mount design, it’s easy to pop it on your handlebar or seatpost, or mix things up and throw it on a backpack or belt. There are four different modes: white solid, red solid, white flashing, and red flashing. Depending on the mode, it lasts up to 12 hours on a single charge.
