Thread: #3 FOURSEVENS - New Preons P1 and P2!

  1. #1

    Buttrock #3 FOURSEVENS - New Preons P1 and P2!

    Here's our 3rd of 5 weekly announcements! The new and improved Preons P1 and P2!
    We incorporated the top feedback from the last 6 years and now present you the new Preon!
    They are brighter and better in every aspect!



    Four main improvements:
    1) Improved grip with axial micro cuts throughout the body - enhancing both the grip as well as the look - it now has a new rugged industrial, functional, and aggressive look!

    2) Stronger, forward (momentary tactical) clicky is less prone to accidental activation. You can still lock out the light with a slight twist of the head.

    3) The clip (inspired by Jason/Prometheus) is simple yet strong and rugged - a huge improvement over the previous generation.

    4) Configurable interface - choose between five difference configurations like the MMR-X. You can now have a single max output - not more toggling modes. It come by default in config 2 which is High and Low.

    The P2 is putting out an incredible 220 Lumens on high with the Cree XP-L HD
    Also available in limited stunning FOURSEVENS Blue!

    Preon P2 is $50

    Very cool. I've gifted a few Preons but never bought one for myself. L@@Ks like that is going to change.

    It's like a tactical Preon.

    Nice. What are the available configurations? Maybe a ti option?

    EDIT: never mind on the modes, saw the video.

    Very nice looking! Will the new clip and/or tail cap fit on the classic Preon?

    EDIT: just noticed that the clips on the new Preons in the VIDEO are different from the still pics above and on the product pages on the web site.

    There are no plans for it at the moment. Doesn't mean it won't be considered in the future.
    Ti lights account for less than 10% of what we sell.

    Nice catch! The pictures above are inaccurate. We're getting the pictures re-shot and will update tomorrow.
    Not likely it's backward retrofittable. Even if it is I'm not sure if you want to do that.

    Ah, good. The Prometheus-'blessed' clip is sharp. Glad that's for real

    I don't see any mention of mode memory, so I'm presuming (in the case of UI#4) that the light will reset to low after X seconds off. Speaking as someone who will want to skip that strobe mode all the time, I'm curious how long does it take to reset?

    Blue P1 ordered. This will be my first Preon. The Lovely Mrs. Gardiner just informed me she won't be giving me anything for Christmas. She saw me take the credit card out of my wallet.

    My Tuxedo Preon 2 has been my constant carry go to light for years, now it will get replaced, I love the programmability and forward clicky of these new guys.
    You are once again digging into my wallet, and deep. PS, a Tuxedo version would be the bomb.

    A Bluetooth light? Change mode programs and get battery data via Smartphone?
    Edit: If my guess is right I use a Windows phone so an app would probably not be available?

    P2 has 7 modes, P1 has 6. Which one is the P1 lacking?

    I love my titanium Preon 1. I do believe that you will have a ready market for all things titanium, especially here on CPF. Please do reconsider doing a run on a titanium version.

    We will definitely consider. At the right now. If you want to help it happen you can indirectly do that by purchasing the aluminum one and telling others about it. After enough sell we'll consider it.

    A very interesting light. No information what so ever about the keychain attachment? (Except that there is a "split ring included").
    In God we trust, all others bring data.

    Those look to be nice lights!

    I do have a couple of questions, though:

    • Is the P1 clip reversible for hat mounting?
    • Is there an automatic stepdown from high mode?

    Unlikely. The light won't turn on with the head loose and putting the clip there would not allow the head to tighten down fully.

    OK, will be ordering the blue Preons (both of them). What's the PWM frequency (noticeable in the video on low mode)?

    Definitely interested in Ti Preons and Ti Bolt Mini. I still have the LE Ti Quark collection.

    According to Selfbuilt's review of the P1 and P2, the originals had a PWM frequency of around 2.40 to 2.43 kHz. I wouldn't be surprised if it stayed around the same for the new preons.

    Thanks. I was hoping they had increased the frequency. Unfortunately we can't tell from the video.

    The UI seems great.

    I'd love to have NW tint option and no more PWM.

    I may have missed it, but is the flat cap still an option? I really like the twisty interface of the original Preon and how much smaller it is.
