First look: Nukeproof Reactor light

900 lumens for the road and trail

This Nukeproof Reactor light is the latest piece of kit to drop in the office, and we’re looking forward to putting it to the test as the evenings get depressingly darker.


Using a Seoul Semiconductors P7 Emitter with a claimed 900 lumen output, the Extreme package at £249.99 has interchangeable lenses – spot, wide flood or medium filter – and comes with a helmet mount and four-cell battery with a claimed full-power burn time of four hours. A cheaper Eco light is available at £199.99 with a two-cell battery that gives two hours’ run time at full power. 

There’s a power level indicator on the battery to let you know whether you can keep blasting at full whack or need to switch down a power level. For commuters who like their front light to flash, there are three modes to choose from, and we’re told that a rear light is on its way which will pump out up to 400 lumens. We can’t wait.


Available through Hotlines UK, keep your eye out for a full review of the light on BikeRadar.
