IQ(2) & IQ Premium

Everybody who has ever been cycling at night, using an LED IQ headlight to light his or her way, will never want to do without the comfort this outstanding light output provides. At its core is the revolutionary idea not to have the LED light source in the centre of the reflector. The complete reflective surface is used to focus and guide the light. If one looks into the reflector of an IQ headlight, one only sees the metalised
surface. Once the headlight is turned on, what takes its place is “nothing but light”. Since 2007, our innovation has continually been developed further. State of the art are “IQ2-TEC” and “IQ-TEC PREMIUM”. In comparison with the first IQ generations, the new IQ-TEC versions offer double the light output and an almost twice as wide, very extensive field of light.

A light source sits in the centre of the reflector. The result:  stray light and loss of efficiency.

A special reflector uses one high output LED as an indirect light source. This creates an extremely homogenous field of light that is much wider.

 

The first Headlight in the world to use IQ2 Optics is LUXOS.

The smallest LED dynamo headlight to use IQ2 is LUMOTEC IQ2 Eyc, and our LED Re-chargeable headlight IXON Core also uses IQ2-Technology.

 

The following headlights all use IQ Optics:
