Hi WW,
I currently have 200 lumen front light and it's nowhere near the output I need for dark rides but it is great at dawn and dusk.
I'm in the market for a bright front light and would like it to be go-pro mountable.
So far I know of:
Exposure series
Lezyne macro drive and lezyne powerdrive with adapter shipped from overseas
Anyone have other recommendations because the exposure are like $250.

Thanks :)

The other approach is that most lights have a mount held on with a screw (often hidden under rubber). In a couple of case I’ve used these little $1 dollar adaptors to make a light go-pro mountable which opens up the range of options significantly.

One was a Lenzyne one piece unit and the other a generic two piece unit and it worked a treat. I’ll see if I can post a pic

Light & Motion have lots of options. Many are the same form factor just brighter/more expensive. Very solid choice.

Light and Motion are very smart with GoPro mounts. The Urban lineup has lights up to 900 lumen and recharge with simple micro USB cables. They also have quick charge lights that run up to 800 lumen. Recharge in a couple hours. I use two of these for 24-races. On the lower settings of 400 lumen, I can see just fine on the road. For MTB 24-hour, I run them at 600 lumen.

K-Edge has an adapter that will work with Niterider Lumina lights.

I just bought a Fabric Lumaray

Clean and I don't even need the GoPro mount.
However it is a light "to be seen" and not "to see"

I use a Bontrager Ion 800 RT. You can get a mount for it that allows it to attach to a go-pro mount. I have it attached to the bottom of my K-edge combo mount. The Ion is a fantastic front light (800 lumens, multiple modes, yada yada).

Here's a link to the mount. Although the pic shows it attached to a Bontrager "Blendr" stem, it fits perfectly into a go-pro mount.

Thanks. I looked at their lights and they look great, very light as well. Would you suggest 700 or 1000 lumens for road?

Looks neat. Love the integration but don't like how it raises the Garmin. Anyway I want a 'to see'

I also have the bontrager ion with the go pro mount. I am very happy with it. It is a clean look and I was able to support my local shop.
