If you are a runner and you like running at night, it’s good to have headlamps in order to avoid accidents. Some of the best units that are in the market include:
Black diamond sprinter
The good side with this unit is that it’s not only a single-strap headband, but it’s also an overhead band as well. The band comes with great features such as a rechargeable double power LED headlamp and a red taillight strobe. It has three settings: full length, strobe, and dimming and you only need to choose the setting that you like the most.
The 68 lumen maximum setting and ovalized beam ensures that the unit is very bright and as a result it brightens even the darkest running routes.
Princeton Tec Fuel
The lamp weighs only 2.7 oz thus it won’t strain you when running. It offers four ultra-light LEDs that shine with 43 lumens. It also has an asymmetrical single arm bracket that allows you to easily adjust the beam of light up and down without the need of adjusting the position of the headband.
This unit has all the other features found on a Princeton Tec Fuel and is powered by three small batteries.
This unit uses a special system of lenses and reflectors. The good side with it is that it allows you to adjust the beam so that you are able to see a wide area. You are also able to adjust the beam in order to see close-up and narrow areas.
It has very powerful 140 lumens that allow you to see up to a distance of 590 ft.
There are two models of the headlamp: Model 7497 which is powered by three small batteries, and model 7498 which comes with three NI-MH rechargeable batteries.
Petzl Tikka Plus 2
The most unique thing about this unit is that it provides light from multiple sources. For example it provides white LED light that is ideal when you are in need of maximum lighting and red LED which is ideal when you need dim light.
The red LED can also be used as strobe light; therefore, you can wear the headlamp backwards thus providing lighting in urban areas. It’s powered by three small batteries; however, you can also use lithium batteries.
These are best headlamps for runners. You should note that getting used to wearing the lamps requires practice.
