OXFORD UltroTorch Pro 300
|Description||Single LED 300 lumens output

Full / dipped and flash modes
2 - 8hrs run time
IP65 water resistant
Oxford's Ultra Torch 300 is a compact front light with four modes and a maximum output of
300 lumens. Modest though that might be by contemporary standards, the beam quality is
very impressive and more than adequate for suburban/urbanites who fancy adding the odd
semi-rural detour into their commuting/training.
Equally modest is the asking price, but build quality is extremely high. A CNC machined, anodised aluminium shell is nice to see at this end of the market, especially one with a screw-down base to protect the internals from water ingress. Talking of which, it's water repellent to IPX6.5 standard, which is pretty much everything bar sustained submersion.
Unscrewing the end reveals a lollipop style plug designed to slide straight into USB ports or mains adaptors.
Verdict: Well-made torch-type light with sensible power and output for darker
There are three steady modes, and one flashing. High is 300 lumens and pretty much holds its own alongside others boasting 300-plus. It's overkill for the suburbs in many respects, being bright enough that semi-rural roads were easily navigated at 18-20mph with a clear view of upcoming hazards.
