This small form 1200 Lumen light sets the benchmark for quality, lightweight and affordable night riding like no other. Weighing in at a meager 69g (light only) and with the smallest footprint of the Gloworm range, the Gloworm Alpha is the perfect option for both helmet and handlebar mounting.
The Alpha is a premium price-point option for those looking at getting into night riding right through to the seasoned enthusiasts.
Biking not your thing but still want a performance light for exploring? Grab the Gloworm headband & the light will bolt straight on & you’re away!
Trail – Low / Medium / High. Special mode: Super Dim
Commute – Low / High. Special mode: Flash (1 Flash every 2 seconds – Flash pattern is High/Low/High)Special modes are activated by holding down the button for 2 sec. This allows the user to conduct any outdoor activity without having to cycle through the special mode and having an interruption of a steady light beam. Additionally, the X2 is shut down by holding the button for approx 5sec. IMT gives you the flexibility of refined programmes and modes without needing to access them every time you go from High mode back to low.
Customise Your Light Ouput – IMT (Intelligent Mode Technology)
IMT defines the Gloworm ethos of versatility. IMT provides the freedom to use the Gloworm light in the default settings or to completely customise for ultimate personalisation.
Gloworm Products are built tough with few moving parts. We use durable materials such as aluminium, carbon fibre and polycarbonate to create a tough and robust product. Our lights can withstand a significant drop to a very hard surface, whilst our batteries are a little less robust and can take a drop from 2 meters without suffering considerable damage.
The Gloworm Universal Mounting System provides unrivalled flexibility, allowing your light to be mounted to the helmet, bike handlebar or even head-strap (sold separately)
All Gloworm Products are designed in NZ to precise engineering standards. Following the design process, products are assembled in their own facility with components sourced from partner companies. Bruce Davey co-ordinates the design process in New Zealand, while the manufacturing of Gloworm Products is managed by Gloworm Co-owner Vaggelis Monogyios.
LED lights produce heat and are sensitive to excessive power. Without built in protection these characteristics can cause damage to a light. To ensure our lights withstand the test of time they all feature self-protection features that limit overheating of the electronics, overcharging of the batteries and excessive discharging. As a rider, you would never know this is occurring, however the light itself will constantly check temperature and power in an effort to make your experience the best possible.
Swap and change your lenses to customise a beam pattern that fits your needs (original spec bulb spares incl but different optics are additional cost )
SPOT OPTIC (ALL LIGHTS) 96% Efficient/FWHM 17 degrees
The spot optic provides the narrowest beam. It is also the most efficient, allowing the greatest light output. It can be used in conjunction with another spot optic to gain the greatest possible output and therefore beam distance. This configuration is best used on the helmet to see down the trail or to spot the exit of a turn. Alternatively the spot could be paired with another optic type from an alternative light pattern.
WIDE OPTIC (ALL LIGHTS) 87% Efficient/FWHM 40 degrees
This optic provides a wide rectangular beam, it utilises the light output to provide more peripheral light and less light in the vertical axis. While not as optically efficient as the Spot Optic, it provides very good output for a wide-angle optic. Two wide optics can be paired as a great option for use on the road, however when paired with either a flood or spot optic an effective hybrid beam can be created.
FLOOD OPTIC (XS, X2) 84% Efficient/FWHM 25 degrees
For a smooth diffused light pattern the Flood optic is the best option. It takes the light and smooths it across the width of the beam, making it slightly easier on the eye and creating even light from left to right. A pair of Flood optics would provide a wall of smooth light, however in doing so a significant amount of light intensity would be lost compared to a pair of spot optics. The flood is best used in tandem with a spot or wide optic.
HONEYCOMB OPTIC (XSV) 87% Efficient/FWHM 30 degrees
Designed for use with the XSV, the Honeycomb Optic is used to gain a smooth diffused light pattern when used with 2 spot optics or other honeycomb optics. It takes the light and smooths it across the width of the beam, making it slightly easier on the eye and creating a more even transition from the bright beam centre.
