More from Chris ...
Whilst collecting the prizes for last season I was shown two very exciting new products:
BrightBikeLIghts Orienteering Headlight Set (2018)
The Orienteering Headlight has been updated for 2018 and now features TWO LEDS to provide 2200 lumens, a reduced weight for the light unit and a high capacity battery giving over 20hours on the low setting.
There are 4 setting giving a range from 300 to 2200 lumens and it comes with all the necessary bike and bike helmet fittings, making it a truly versatile light.
Orienteering/Runners Headlight Ferei HL65
This headlight has an LED Light providing upto 1500 lumens. The battery is contained on the back of the headband and the whole unit is very lightweight. It has 9 light settings and an emergency mode when lower light levels are required, for example for map reading.
This is ideal for the Night Street League events as run by SROC, MDOC and DEE.
There is an additional option available for either a 2 or 4 cell battery pack and extension cable to increase the duration on maximum brightness. This means it can also be reliably used on the Traditional Forest/Moorland Orienteering Night events.
There are other models in the Ferei range which you may be interested in. I have been using an older version in the Night Street League for the last three years and highly recommend them.
Please check the BrightBikeLights website https://www.brightbikelights.com/ for the full specifications of these two headsets.
