We recently received this quirky little helmet light by Topeak®. First impressions were good as it’s design is very sleek and relatively compact. The fact that the one unit contains both a white and red light is great as this saves the need to buy two individual lights, as is the norm when attaching lights to the front and rear of your bicycle.
It is lightweight too, weighing in at just 24 grams and also comes with two CR2032 batteries.
It has three settings on it, all controlled by the main central button. It has a blinking red and static white, followed by blinking red and white lights, then finally it has a static red and white.
The Topeak® Headlux not only looks nice but it boasts some pretty impressive statistics too!
It says it has 100+ hours life on the blinking setting, 70+ hours on the constant/blinking setting, and 50+hours on the constant setting. It also says it has visibility of 360°, which is really useful on dimly lit roads. It is also water resistant, so will provide decent and reliable viability even in the rain.
It comes with a strap that makes attaching to your helmet extremely easy, just follow the instructions on the packaging and you’ll be set up in next to no time!
The Headlux doesn’t have to be solely used on the helmet, the manufacturers claim that the attachment bracket is versatile and strong enough to be attached to the frame of your bicycle. The strap is made from strong Velcro so I have no doubts that this would hold well on the frame of a bicycle, but seeing as though it is clearly designed for the top of your helmet, I’d suggest it be used there to get the best result from this little light.
The brightness is impressive too, the LED lights provide a decent amount of visibility. You can be sure to be seen from a good distance with this light.
You can get your hands on one of these from Amazon, and other good bicycle retailers for around about £10!
Overall, The Topeak Headlux is an impressive, small, versatile and surprisingly bright helmet light!
