The new Lupine Alpha is nothing less than the most powerful bicycle lamp for racing we've ever built. A full 7200 lumens, perfect illumination and an enormous range of up to 840 meters make your bike the ultimate nighttime racing machine.
Whether directly in front of you or several hundred meters away: the Alpha will show you every detail on your way. The Alpha combines 3 different lens types to create a perfectly illuminated image tailored for racing use. Two 22° lenses in combination with two ultra-wide angle lenses ensure never-before-seen Illumination at close range. Four 18° lenses focus part of the light and generate a range that outshines any comparable lamp.
Reduced to the essentials
Where there is light, there is heat. To optimize the cooling of the Alpha, the button has been moved to the underside of the lamp head. In
combination with the one-sided mounting method, space was created for more cooling fins and the heat management was adapted to the high performance.
Even during the fastest of speeds you can immediately see at what level your lamp is currently set: The Alpha has an extra large, colored LED status bar for displaying light levels and selected functions.
With the new Alpha's 2-way-switch, it's now even easier to switch between the light levels. You shift back and forth between the light levels in a flash, similar to a gear shift.
With the FrontClick quick-change system, your lighting will be more flexible than ever before. You can swap your headlamp from one helmet to another in seconds, without any tools.
Daytime running light function
Sometimes you just don't want to be overlooked but want to save electricity at the same time: In this case you simply use the daytime running light function integrated in the Alpha.
Lupine Light Control 2.0
The app for the new Alpha offers many possibilities: You set your light levels and special functions as you like them. Save your settings, create custom profiles for your activities, and simply use them again when you need them.
To prevent you from confusing your batteries, the Alpha plug has its own distinctive shape and color, but if you want to charge your smartphone via USB-One: it´s fully compatible.
Our Statement: Alpha vs. Betty
Is the Alpha better than a Betty? From 25 years of experience we can answer this question with just one word: Yes! The Alpha seems much brighter and, thanks to its specially designed light pattern, is much better suited for fast rides on a bike/MTB.
You really need this light!, November 1, 2018 By Eric (Escondido, CA)
After many years riding on a variety of Betty's Wilma's and Piko's I was waiting for the next best thing to the BettyR 5000 lumen light. The ALPHA is better in every way. I ride about 100 miles weekly at night mostly on the road. Prevents me from having to use sunscreen. The real magic in this light is not the 7200 lumens, which is nice, but the beam pattern that is created by the various width LED's that are used. With the Betty you get a lot of light into the trees and no so with the ALPHA. The app works very well to create a variety of light profiles depending on what your needs are. I personally chose a 10W, 30W, 50W and 70W for my 4 light levels and with proper level usage have 40% battery left at the end of a 3 hour ride. You results may vary. And this is on city streets where you need more light. I would believe that out in the country where there is no ambient light you can ride for a very long time as you can run the light at lower levels and still see very well. No regrets here. In fact my buddy had to have one now to replace his Wilma after seeing my light.
