PRE-ORDER - 2017 Gloworm CX Trail
Updates from 2016 Models
The revolutionary CX takes innovation to a new level. The CX is much more than a well priced commuter light – the CX series takes all-in-one lighting into the future. The CX uses custom replaceable optics to produce a beam perfect for the desired application, for convenience it is USB chargeable and can be mounted seamlessly on the bars or helmet.
Weighing only 200 grams, the CX can be charged whilst being used meaning it can be charged using a dynamo USB device. The CX is OTG (On The Go) capable and can be used to charge other devices, such as your phone or GPS.
The CX has a replaceable battery for extended runtimes and utilises common mounting sytems for ultimate versatility. It also comes with a removable wired remote allowing safe use of the light without needing to remove your hands from the bars.

TRAIL – LOW > MEDIUM > HIGH. SPECIAL MODE > SUPER DIM (10 days runtime) (All programmable to user requirements)
COMMUTE – LOW > HIGH. SPECIAL MODE > FLASH (2HZ – Low/High) (All programmable to user requirements)
Special modes are activiated by holding down the button for 2 seconds. This allows the user to use the light without the need to cycle through the special mode (or off) and therefore interupting the steady beam of light.
The light is shutdown by holding the button for approximately 5 seconds. IMT gives the user the flexibility of mulitple programme options without being restricted to factory settings.
Mounting Options: The light comes with options to mount on the bar or helmet.
The bar mount clamps onto the bar and has a 1/4 turn quick release bracket (Garmin style) to engage the light making it easy to pop the light off and slip it in your pocket.
For helmet mounting the light has an interchangeable GoPro style clamp mount bracket which can mount to any GoPro mount or to the included Quick-Release mount and base. Some helmets now come with this Quick-Release base built in or we have additional self-adhesive or strap-on versions available.
New for 2017, the GoPro style bar mount adapter
Urban vs Trail comparison:
Complete manuals for the lights can be found HERE.
Both are the same size and weight and share all features except for light output.
Both have the same runtime due to the larger capacity battery in the Trail version. The high capacity Trail battery can be used in the Urban for longer runtimes.
We ran both lights through our standard beam pattern test. The results are shown below in graphical form.
Though both lights use the same optics the Urban's XP-G2 led's produce a tighter beam that gives it more throw even though it has less total light output. This could be preferred for those wishing to use the light for helmet mounting along with a wide beam light on the bar. The Urban's beam can be widened by installing the included spot-wide optic giving it a general purpose beam. The Trail version provides more peripheral light which make it a good helmet or bar light, particularly if it's your only light.
