Seca’s proprietary custom reflector delivers an optimized beam pattern providing ample flood coverage and a concentrated center spot for a long line of sight.

  • Output on high: 900 lumens // Run Time: 2:30—10:00 hours // System Weight: 520g

the seca 900 is so dope. I originally thought that it would be overkill, since I currently had a seca 700 on bar, and stella 200 on the lid. But now that I replaced the 700 with the 900, holy sh#t!! I’ve never experienced anything like it on a night ride. I might as well have not had the stella even turned on!
