Serfas Cranks Up the Lumens with New Lights for 2014

Serfas Lights TSL_2500_1

It’s hard to think about shorter days and night riding just yet, but they are quickly approaching. Serfas is looking to provide you a head start on your lighting needs with 5 new lights for the coming season. From the whopping 2500 lumen TSL-2500, to the compact TSL-350, Serfas has lights at just about every level of lumens and price.

Flash through for more.

All new for 2014, the TSL-2500 is the new king of lighting from Serfas marking their highest powered light ever. An interesting feature on both the TSL-1500 and TSL-T1000 is a USB port integrated into the battery pack allowing you to charge other accessories on the go. Traveling with your lights and run out of juice for your phone? Just plug in the USB cord to the battery and power it up. We’re not sure how much this feature will be utilized, but if you ever need it, you’ll be glad it’s there.

The body of the light is constructed from tough nylon and alloy for shock resistance, and features a ram air cooling system to keep the four LEDs from frying.

Specs:

  • $425
  • Includes Handlebar Mount, Helmet Mount, Wire Switch, Extension Cable, Wall Charger and Ballistic Nylon Hardcase for storage.
  • Run time: 1.45 hours (HIGH)
  • Charge Time: 4 Hrs (WALL)
  • Wired Remote Switch for on-the-fly mode changes of headlight and optional Taillight (TL-80, retail: $50)

Serfas Lights TSL 1000

Not to be confused with the TSL-1000+, the TSL-T1000 still offers 1000 lumens, but in a smaller, more compact package than the 1000+. Using just two LEDs instead of 3, the T1000 also has an innovative feature with a Thunderbolt tail light built into the battery pack. So, by strapping your battery pack to your seat post, you are also strapping on a tail light. Like the 2500, the T1000 has a USB port built into the battery pack as well for on the go accessory charging.

Specs:

  • $320
  • Includes Handlebar Mount, Helmet Mount, Wire Switch, Extension Cable, Wall Charger and Ballistic Nylon Hardcase for storage
  • Run time: 2 hours (HIGH)
  • Charge time: 4 Hrs (WALL)
  • Wired Remote Switch for on-the-fly mode changes

okay… i’ll better see what’s Uncle Lao has to offer, last time I checked it was 900 lumens in cnc anodized body for $80, free delivery included. no such novelty as a red light on battery pack though…

I’d pay the difference to get the wider diffusion pattern, but what does it weigh?

P.S. night riding is for when the nights are short, too, but the days are too damn hot for climbing.

I hope it’s lightweight and easy to remove.

In my area, headlights are, more often than not, replaced because of theft.
As a commuter, it would be frustrating to spend $425 on a light…then spend 5 minutes removing a light…lug it around all day…then spend another 5 minutes re-attaching it

…and repeating EVERY day!

cycling commuters don’t have a lot of cargo space…nor do we have a lot of extra time to spend getting our vehicles situated

Hey David,

You should look at options that aren’t meant to be uninstalled – like these

or http://www.bikerumor.com/2013/09/30/ib13-seamless-light-integration-from-sparse/

and alternatively, get something that mounts on your helmet? I love my Nightrider Lumina!
