Details
The Ixon IQ Premium front battery light utilises a new radically designed special reflector with an integrated cooling system. The white light comes from a high powered LED that is used as an indirect light source creating a uniformly illuminated output which is very bright, wide and homogenous. The high power mode provides 80 lux output for five hours or 15 lux for twenty hours in the City Eco mode. Supplied with NiMH batteries and charger. Standard (BMD42) and oversized (BMD43) handlebar brackets are also available (seperately). Approved by German road traffic regulations. The lux output is measured at 10 meters from the headlight not just directly in front!

The most remarkable technical feature of IQ-Tec is a radically designed special reflector with integrated cooling system. The light comes from a high powered LED that is used as an indirect light source. For this reason, there is no bulb or diode to be seen in the centre of the reflector. B&M aptly describe this concisely and clearly as "nothing but light". That is exactly what the cyclist experiences at night: The useable lighted area of the Ixon IQ is uniformly illuminated to a maximum extent and twice as wide as with conventional reflectors.

IQ-Tec Premium - the light revolution for bicycles

IQ-Tec Premium is the central technology for current front Busch & Muller lights. 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. Busch & Muller developed a special reflector - if you look into the reflector one only sees the metalised surface. When the light is turned on what takes its place is 'nothing but light'.

How to attach to cantilever fork mount?
By
30 Sep 2018
Hi - I bought this light along with SJS Cycles part number : 4667 to mount it to my fork. However, it appears I also need to replace the handlebar mount that came with the light with a mount that attaches to the cantilever fork bracket (4667). Can you point me in the right direction please.
Thanks.
Hi there,

The part that you need 45777. You should be able to just swap out the bracket and use the one you already have.

Thanks.
Can I recharge this on the go from my hub dynamo please

When I brought my Raven from you I had her with a dynamo and sinewave revolution USB charger,Is there a cable that I can connect my sinewave to the light to allow charging please and if there is do you sell it please,thanks for your time.
Hi,

Unfortunately this light requires mains power for charging so there is not a charging cable available for it from a USB port like that on your Sinewave.

Thanks.
Is it possible to mount this on the fork crown?
By

I assume it might be possible to use a different bracket.
I occasionally use a bar bag, and lights are obstructed.
Hi,

Busch and Muller do offer a fork crown fitting bracket as a separate item, these are SJSC part number 45777.

Thanks.
I have several questions listed below...
By

How big/heavy is the charger it needs in grams? Is it USA voltage compatible? Is it waterproof? Can mount fit on an aero bar? what type of 'normal' garge store accessable batteries does it require? What are burn times when running on standard batteries?
Hi,

The charger comes as an EU plug with a UK adaptor, the combined weight for the two is 130grams. The light is water resistant, so will cope with all but the most extreme weather. It only comes supplied with a round clamp so would not be suitable for mounting to an aero bar. The light requires 4 AA sized batteries, if used with high quality standard batteries the run times should still be the same.

Thanks.
Will This Light Also Run On Disposable Batteries Eg For Multi Night Rides
