Tumble & Fall Pro 2000 light review£90.00

Bargain mountain bike headlamp

BikeRadar score4/5Find prices on Bicycle Blue Book

Tumble & Fall has solved problems we’ve had in the past with similar lamps to create an impressively practical light at a bargain price.

The lightweight head unit uses an O-ring and hook for a reasonably stable universal bar fit. The cable is securely locknutted into place and the backlit mode/low battery button stands proud for easy gloved operation.

The neoprene battery bag with stretchy wrapover strap is more stable than most cloth or hard case cells too.

The theoretical 2,000 lumens of light is tightly focused with a peripheral halo, but power is impressive for the price. That makes the flash and totally off ‘holes’ between the two power modes the only niggle.

Bar and helmet mounts and even a head strap in the box plus a two-year UK warranty confirm its total bargain status.

Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
