EXPOSURE SIX PACK MK7

The Six Pack light has been in Exposure’s range for years and has undergone a steady process of development as new technologies have arrived. Now in it 7th generation it sits at the top of the Exposure range and is their most powerful handlebar mounted light.

The Six Pack showcases Exposure’s ‘Lead free design’ and after a long winter of testing we’ve been converted to this hassle-free set up.

There’s a real quality feel to Exposure lights and as with all their models the Six Pack Mk7 has a CNC aluminium body with a tough crystal ‘optical plastic’ lens. It may look like a bulky light but the overall weight of 386g is low in comparison to competing lights with a similar output and burn time.

proven light system with a separate battery will usually weigh between 450g and 700g. With all the weight in one place it leaves the bike tidy with no battery, leads and cables getting muddy but you may ask the question of how secure it is on the bars. Exposure got it right from the start and their quick release aluminium bar mount has needed very little development. Small and sturdy, it holds the Six Pack light steady and leaves little clutter on the bars when the light is not in use. An updated bracket to fit 35/31.8mm bar clamp diameters, is now available.

‘It’s a dedicated handlebar mounted system in a clean and simple design with a low overall weight’

The Six Pack is programmable using just main switch and the settings chart etched onto the light’s body. You can choose between settings using the low/medium/high outputs, with varying burn times or one of the Reflex settings.

Reflex setting? This technology enables the Exposure light to intelligently adjust its own brightness to suit your riding. A combination of gradient, acceleration and cornering forces are interpreted to match output to your need for light while automatically maintaining the burn time you have selected. The digital OLED status display (OSD) confirms the mode you have selected and shows the remaining burn time in each of the light settings. A full charge from empty is three hours.

With a maximum of 3400 lumens from six LEDs on the brightest setting, the output is more than enough for high-speed riding in technical terrain. This is further boosted to the 4500 lumens in Reflex mode when your speed increases on descents.

With all the power you need, a useful beam pattern of light and the wide (and easy to understand) range of settings, the Mk7 Exposure Six Pack is an impressive package. It’s a dedicated handlebar mounted system in a clean and simple design with a low overall weight and is our favourite light in 2017.
