This dual-purpose light from Hope looks flashy – but how did it fare with our testers?
The brains behind Hope’s highly regarded bike products are also keen runners, and their bike lights can be used for both sports. The Vision 2 LED comes with a head harness so you can strap the bike light to your forehead for those times when night running is a necessity.
On the highest setting it belts out 480 lumens for two hours, giving enough light to run anywhere without fear of falling down a hole, and takes just three hours to charge. The light and battery pack are a bit bulky for running and the power cord can get annoying, so you’re better off sticking to long, slow runs rather than high speed reps.
The head strap was also a bit loose on some of our pea-headed testers, so they needed a thick woolly hat to stop the light from shifting about on their noggins. If these niggles don’t worry you it could potentially open a whole new set of night training opportunities.
