Premium and Super bright. 2,000 lumens output is known as the industry standard for the ultimate brightness that a bicycle light harness. Z2K is designed for providing 2,000 lumens in a compact form factor.
Z2K is our top of the line model, and it has to deliver premium and with the most powerful light output. The overall design direction followed JAZ's modern lifestyle design philosophy. Recess grooves are subtly sculpted on the light body to maximize the surface while preserving the silhouette of the cross section body profile. The alloy body is treated in either metallic grey or black and with a light sand blast texture to create a more technical and sophisticated appearance.
After prototyping multiple rounds of POC (proof of concept) light samples to test ride in the dark, a robust and secure mounting solution is needed to carry the weight of the full die cast alloy body. To avoid the light body from "dipping" pivoting downward from the handle bar when cycling through uneven terrains, we designed a bolt on mount for holding the weight of the light body securely on the handle bar.
For ease of use, a quick release mechanism is placed between the light body and the bolt on clamp so the cyclist can quickly remove and reattach the light body for recharging the battery.
