Double Stryk System
Battery powered LED light for all your adventures – designed as a helmet light and handlebar light for your mountain bike or road bike. The Double Stryk can also be a great addition for your motorcycle or ATV. Producing 1800 lumens and weighing in at only 470 grams the Double Stryk will light up anything you toss at it. The Double Stryk will run up to 6 hours and is completely waterproof up to 33 ft.
The Double Strykr system includes:
We get asked quite a few questions regarding our Strykr II, Strykr SL, and Double Stryk light systems. Here's a pretty good synopsis on these systems given to a forum member on MTBR.com:
Battery with mounting strap
Offset Quick Release Handlebar Mount
2.5hr Smart Charger
Spare Thin Velcro Mounting Straps
- Double XM-L powered light head with wide and spot lenses included
- 30" Extension cord
The Baja Designs Strykr series systems have multiple levels that break down by halves, so you have 3hrs on High (925 lumens), 6hrs on Medium (roughly 450 lumens), and 12hrs of Low (roughly 225 lumens), the Flasher mode last for up to 30hrs on a full battery on the single beam systems. The Double Stryk gets half the burn time that the single beam systems get, but generally you are able to cruise around in the Mid and Low settings and still have more than plenty of light. Of course the ultimate combo is the Double Stryk and Strykr SL, but honestly with the level of light that is being produced you'll be stoked with any combination you'd like to go with. (but I recommend the most expensive one ;) )
The battery uses Sanyo cells, is fully armored, water proof, and is warrantied for two years (the rest of the system's electronics has a life-time warranty), I believe two years is twice as long as the best warranty in the industry. The charger that comes with the Strykr series is a smart charger (red when charging/green when done) that takes 2.5hrs to top off a battery that has been fully drained.

2012 Bike Light Shootout Review of the Baja Designs Double Stryk: (http://reviews.mtbr.com/baja-designs-double-stryk-2012-mtbr-lights-shootout/2)
"The Double Stryk is voted by us as the model name to be most likely misspelled in the lights category. It’s hard enough that Striker is spelled Stryker. Now, the dual version of the Stryker is called Stryk.
The good news is this new light is a force to be reckoned with and I think we will be hearing this name a lot. This light catapults Baja Designs into the arena of high-end ultimate lights and it can now compete with the best out there.
The materials and machining is now first rate ast the light body is machine aluminum and the quality is hardly masked by the tan-gray anodizing. The mount goes from zip ties in to a CNC’d center mount. It is a step up indeed not only in aesthetics but also functionality as it mounts the light right in front of the stem.
And finally, the beam is a tour de force as it has a very bright, slightly wide center spot. But it is still complemented by an extremely wide halo for good peripheral illumination.Now the light does get quite hot when run under in high, even with a powerful fan blowing on it. It did however keep running all the way through the battery for 1.5 hours. The run time at full power is a bit short but like most ultra powerful lights, running it at half power doubles the run time and still delivers and extremely bright beam.
- Claimed Lumens: 1800 Lumens
- Light Head Weight: 136 grams
- Installed Weight: 470 grams
- Run Time: 1.5hrs on High, 3hrs on Medium, 6hrs on Low, 12hrs on Flasher mode
Mounting is where this light takes a quantum leap over its Stryker roots. Where the previous generation used zip ties, this new Double Stryk uses an elegant, center-mounted piece. It features a knurled nut and is installed without tools. Three different sized, grooved sleeves are included with the kit, so proper fit is ensured on both handlebar sizes. It can still be aimed left although that is usually not necessary as this is now in the optimum position.
The mount is so good that users of the old lights will be clamoring to use this mount with the Stryker. The good news is that it is backwards compatible and it is available separately for about $35.
MTBR Light Meter Measurements:
This light measured 150 Mtbr lux on our ambient light measurement facility. This is a staggering amount of light and really puts it in the heavy-hitter category. The other lights in its company are:
Exposure Six Pack, $600- 135 lux
Light and Motion Seca 1400 -$700 – 114 lux
Light Meter Charts and Comparison Table »
- First class light head with machining and quality
- Good lenses and reflector deliver an excellent beam pattern
- Light switch stays out of the way and closer to the rider
- Very good center mount
- Warranty and customer service reputation is excellent.
- Light can get quite hot (*if left sitting with little or no air flow - the systems Thermal Regulator will lower wattage draw if necessary)
- 1.5 hour run time at high is quite short. (*most riders use the Middle and Lower wattage settings and High for fast sections)
This is a stunning light from Baja Designs as it doubles the output of previous light and the price only goes up by $100. With the included new mount worth $35, this is a bargain.
The beam pattern is one of the best too as it achieves the coveted ‘breadth and depth’ balance.
