Bike Light Combo MTB
heard on many occasions how some lights are just too much for the
normal rider. Most riders are of the opinion that a more powerful light
means more weight to carry, a big, clunky, light to add to your bike,
and far more light than any rider would ever need. Those assumptions
couldn’t be farther from the truth with the MJ-908 remote controlled,
front and tail light combo set from Magicshine. This light offers an
amazing 8,000 lumen output from the handle bar mounted front light!
Although the amount of light output is quite impressive and one of, if
not the brightest light on the market, many riders really enjoy the ease
of operation with the remote control and the power packed battery set
up. Adjusting to a remote light control comes quite quickly to most
riders making the transition to the Magicshine light a breeze.

unpacked, the setup includes the front light with handlebar mount, the
battery with Velcro mounting straps, the tail lamp with seat post
mounting grommet, the “Y” adapter connection cable to get power to both
light, and the wireless remote to control both lights and mounting
grommet are included, as well as the charger. The battery has 2 smooth
silicon mounting pads to protect the finish of your bike plus 2 mounting
straps that hold everything secure. The battery also has an additional
tie all strap to secure any excess cable between lights, so you can
mount everything nice and neat to stay out of the way while riding. I
found the whole assembly very well thought out and effective.
Mount, Adapters, and Setup
handlebar mount for the front light is as simple as adjusting a belt.
The silicon adjustable strap allows for the light to be securely mounted
to any common size handlebars up to 35mm in diameter. The grommet for
the remote is also very simple to attach and has two options to hold it
Battery pack secured and “Y” cable in place for a very clean installation.
battery is very simple to install. Magicshine recommends mounting on
the top tube or down tube, but any available location that a rider
prefers should work well. Some experimentation may be necessary in order
to find the best location for your bike in order to place the cables
and connections in optimum locations. The battery stays very secure
during rides with very little to no shifting while riding.
The battery pack is a 6x18650 Li-ion High Capacity Battery Pack
battery pack consists of 6 Lithium Ion batteries at 7.47V, 7.8AH with
runtime at 100% stated to be 3 hours. Testing run times have
consistently outperformed the 3 hour advertised time significantly. The
battery recharges at a similar rate and takes 3-4 hours to achieve full
charge. Battery life is stated by Magicshine to be 500 charge cycles.
The battery is also waterproof rated to IPX4, so riding in the rain
should not be an issue.

notions regarding using high powered light systems as a normal rider
will all but vanish after using this system. Not only is the system
amazingly powerful, but is super simple to install and use. Combine the
high level of performance, ease of use, and the long battery life, the
MJ-908 is clearly a force to be reckoned with on the trail. With this
system, even normal riders are armed with enough power to ride deep into
a dark forest and have the security of knowing they will be able to see
their way out of the forest.
ability to use the wireless remote to change lights settings is
comforting for any rider. Being able to keep both hands on the bar while
riding in the dark is usually a good idea and safe practice. This
system allows a rider to make adjustments with both hands where they
need to be. The front light offers a Low, Medium, High, Extra High and
Flashing modes. The rear light also offers 3 Flashing Variation Modes
and a Solid Mode. The ability to change via remote is a truly great
feature of this setup.
great feature is the front light display that tells the rider which
particular lights setting is being used, how much battery life is left
from a bar indicator, battery percentage, and then will switch to a time
left display. The rider is very well informed from the light display so
as to know exactly what the power status is while using the light
system. (See below images)
