Review: Xeccon Geinea I

Lights Lights Shootout

Editor’s Note: This article originally appeared on Mtbr.

The Xeccon Geinea is a 650 Lumen light with a tail light included in the system. A remote switch is included to control both front and tail lights.

The system is fairly interesting for commuters that could use a unified system of head light and tail light. But they did go a bit overboard with the wiring mess with the two lights and a remote switch. It is a far departure from the self-contained light systems so popular today.

Mtbr Light Meter Measurements

This light measured 61 Lux on our ambient light measurement facility. The light output measurement is performed by placing a Lux light meter beside the light. Both are pointed at the ceiling (five feet above) of a dark room. This measurement uses the ambient light produced by the bike light.

Integrating Sphere Measured Lumens

This light measured 617 Lumens in an integrating sphere. Claimed Lumens by the manufacturer is 650 Lumens. The Lumen-hour graph below shows how the light performs over the first three minutes of its battery cycle.

Beam Pattern Photo

The location is useful since it has walls and a ceiling that can display a bike light beam pattern. The walls have a lot of graffiti on them and actually show detail when they are lit up by a light with a wide angle. Cones and targets are set up with the far target set up at 120 feet.
