I'm only making the 1200 Lumen version this year. Cree just came out with the XML2 led that is brighter and more efficient.

Most of the prepaid orders have been shipped or picked up. I'm trying to get some lights made up so that I can keep them in stock and not make you guys and gals wait on me to make them.

I forgot to mention shipping in the original post...  Undecided Please add $5.00 to the total if you would like the light shipped directly to you. I can also meet somewhere in the Charlotte area to hand deliver a light instead of shipping.

Here are the new estimated run times.

1200L - 1.5 Hrs
600L - 3 hrs
300L - 6 hrs
150L - 12hrs
75L - 24hrs+

The charge time will vary depending on 1 vs. 2 batteries, but 4-6 hours is typical.

Great Lights!  Used my new one (I now have two sets) at RRT last Friday.  On High for 90+ minutes and it was still going strong without changing the battery.  Thanks Kbark!

I have a few Black SL2K's in stock if anyone wants to buy one for a Christmas present. 

Some lucky young ripper is getting this sweet orange one from his dad this year!

No word from Kbark, but the batteries are 18650's.  They can be bought local at batteries plus or check amazon.

He never returned a message to me from this site or the other one.  I ended up buying two lights from performance that work great.  I'd still be interested in one of his light packages if anyone ever hears from him.  Good Luck with the batteries.

Hi guys, sorry I've been off the forums for a while. I haven't had much free time with work and family stuff.

I'm going to go ahead and make a few lights in case anyone wants one this winter. I'll start checking the forums everyday since the email notifications don't seem to work.

Thanks!

This light just got way more expensive for me.

Turns out that they changed the hours at Lake James State Park December 1st and myself and a friend were cited for being in the park after hours (1 hour past closing time).

$215 Sad

No warning, just pay up. Smiley

Essentially they are denying access during the winter for those who have day jobs.

Shout out to kbark for the SL2K light.  I got mine over the weekend and put it to use for the first time last night at WWC.  It was my first night ride so I was anxious and hopeful that I wouldn't have any issues seeing the trail.  Suffice to say it is very bright and did a fantastic job.  I got it with the bar mount and coupled with my helmet light I had no issues seeing the trail or where I was going.  Highly recommend it if you are thinking of getting a light.

Long time user shoutout to Kbark. I have owned four lights, two since 2011ish and 2 since 2012ish. 

background/usage:
My wife commutes daily on her bike, in Colorado, year round. Snow, rain, anything above zero degrees, she'll ride in it. For the portion of the year that she needs lights, which has already started this year, so mid Sept - Mid April I guess, she has used her ShartLight. 

My usage is strictly riding to town/bar/grocery store etc. And the odd night mountain bike ride. So less frequent.

I had two lights that were showing some age, mostly around the battery case. The cold temps caused one to crack (it was still usable but not sure how much longer) and the other to start cracking. I contacted Kevin to see what he could do about it and a few weeks later I had my lights back in like new condition for a very reasonable fee.

So 5 years later, with what some would call "abusive" usage, the Shartlights are all still going strong, with minor repairs. Money well spent. 

ps. They've also outlasted numerous blinkies and a few "cherrybomb" type rear lights.

If you can get one, get it.  I have 3 of them and use 'em all the time.  I run one on the front of the roadbike in the daytime and keep one with me during late evening rides at WWC.

Will there ever be a trend towards less lumens/more yellow lights?   The current trend for more lumens coupled with the very blue/white light sucks.  Always feels like I'm riding in a haunted house.

To me the yellow, lower lumen, light feels much better in the woods...

Higher lumens means a brighter light, not the color of it which is a reflection of the temperature of the light.  So a lower temperature will make the light more yellow whereas a higher temp makes the light more blue.  I agree with you that once a light gets very white or bluish that it makes the trail look a little funny.  A little lower temp with a higher lumen rating is ideal IMHO.

UPDATE: Kevin was spotted this morning!  However he was neither riding his bike nor making bike lights but merely eating breakfast.

I'm pretty sure he's out of the game.  Same thing with mine I've had them for 8 years or so and they are in need of a refresh.   

Looks like its time to try out something else.
