"Guys, drove in the Mille Miglia in a 1954 Alfa Romeo last weekend and, on a whim, I took the Exposure Race off my Trek Top Fuel EX9 just in case I needed it. I needed it. The lights were original, you could read a newspaper headline at two paces but it cost five horsepower. After a battery failure on the last night, we drove for 200km from 11pm in the rain with the Exposure Race held out the passenger window from Modena to Brescia at up to 140km/h. I knew how good it was from riding through snow in high winter. My co-driver had no idea and was astonished (moreso when I told him this was nowhere near your most powerful light). Thank you, guys, because without you, we would not have finished the event. Keep up the awesome work." May 2013
"I've just ridden Mountain Mayhem at Gatcombe Park. Both the six pack and joystick I own worked superbly as expected. Even better than that was the service from your staff at the Exposure marquee - I was adjusting my si pack bracket on the course on Friday evening and dropped the screw. I visited the marquee to see if they could sort me out and they did so brilliantly - no fuss, no questions, just happy to get me sorted and back up and running for the event. Cheers!"

“I am absolutely delighted with the lights; and the remote switch finishes off the package perfectly. It’s not just the performance that is so good, it’s the whole package, the simplicity of attachment of both lights and being able to dip easily for oncoming traffic. It’s only after having used them for a while that one really appreciates how good they really are, there are not any ‘niggles’ they just work - really well. I’m almost sad to have to put them away for the summer (except for those occasional off road late night stealth missions). So thanks.” Andy Plewes, March 2011
