    Question I am looking for a Bike light with a remote switch like the Niteye B20

    Hello,

    I have a Niteye B20 whose switch broke two times. The first time I was able to get a replacement via Niteye, but now they seem to be bankrupt. They do not answer emails, their website has not been update in ages and their facebook is dead. I spotted a very similar switch on the Klarus B30, but I am not sure if it would fit and I was unable to find out so far. Maybe someone knows here.

    If I cannot manage to get a new switch, I'll probably need a new lamp for my bike as the days are getting shorter. I still want a lamp I can operate with a remote switch, so the possibilities are not endless. It should also have multiple brightness modes. Any suggestions as to which lamp meets my requirements ?

    Cheers,
    Para

    The Fenix BC30 has a remote pressure switch.

    The Magicshine lights come with one, it does look a tad clunky though.

    If I remember correctly the Fenix BC30 remote switch only turns on turbo and doesn't control all the modes. I have one and decided to not bother with the remote switch because it has limited functionality. You might want to double check that though and it's possible they've updated it since I bought mine. I love the light but just make sure it will do what you want before buying it.

    Very good point. I hadn't considered that. Sorry OP!

    Gloworm X2
    Dual XML and remote, so should be much like your Niteye.

    I bought the Fenix BC30 in the meantime. The switch is not changing modes, but it is enough for now.

    Awesome, I hope you like it! Mine has served me well for sure although I've mostly used it on the road rather than on trails. I imagine it would be great on trails as well though. Hopefully I'll get to try that out this fall in addition to riding on the road.
