Description
    The Ixon IQ Premium front battery light utilises a radically designed special reflector with an integrated cooling system. The white light comes from a high powered LED that is used as an indirect light source creating a uniformly illuminated output which is very bright, wide and homogenous. The useable lighted area of the IXON IQ is uniformly illuminated to a maximum extent and twice as wide as with conventional reflectors. HighPower mode provides 80 lux output for five hours or 10 lux for twenty hours in the LowPower mode. The electronic system (90% efficiency) shows battery capacity, charging process and condition. Supercharging is not possible. This light is supplied with four rechargeable NIMH batteries and charger. Charging time is approximately five hours using the charger supplied. It is also possible to use four non rechargeable AA batteries. The lux output is measured at 10 meters from the headlight not just directly in front! Approved by German road traffic regulations.

    IQ-Tec Premium - the light revolution for bicycles

    IQ-Tec Premium is the central technology for current front Busch & Muller lights. At its core is the revolutionary idea not to have the LED light source in the centre of the reflector. The complete reflective surface is used to focus and guide the light. Busch & Muller developed a special reflector - if you look into the reflector one only sees the metalised surface. When the light is turned on what takes its place is 'nothing but light'
Accessories

Mounts
    Supplied with standard size handlebar mount bracket with quick locking mechanism. The headlight can be tilted, pivoted and
    removed from its mounting bracket with one click
How To Recognise A Good Head Light
    Illumination levels of headlights can be measured using different units - e.g. Lux or Lumen. B&M states the light output of headlights using the unit Lux. A Lux value provides the illumination level in relation to its distance from the light source. It is exactly this relation which is a deciding factor when considering a headlight, because it states the amount of light on the road. The value Lumen in turn states how much light exits the headlight at the light source, no matter if the light shines onto the road or is lost as stray light. That is why this value as excellent as it might sound can be very misleading

    However even the Lux value provides only partial information about the out put of a headlight. Also important is the quality of the light field which is created on the road. Its width and depth; its light quality that is both homogenous as well as comfortable to look at with the human eye and its Lux values does not say it all. And finally its glare free light/dark boundary are all qualities that cannot be stated using just measured data. What is important is how and what the rider can see for safer more comfortable riding

    It is notable that some manufacturers cite "visibility from x metres" as a means of evaluating headlamp quality, a rather meaningless value. There is no objective measuring method and the safety gain is only an individually perceived factor because it implies ideal conditions (i.e. no interfering light, "clean" air, unhindered visibility, universally identical abilities of human eyesight ...) that in reality do not exist. That is why B&M forgoes quoting a value that they consider useless and that only feigns objectivity. The most relevant question is this: Is there any real value in being seen from a distance of 1000 metres?
