Lancashire-based Hope’s twin lamp isn’t the most powerful out there but makes up for it in versatility and value.
The CNC machined alloy head uses a simple but effective cam quick-release as standard but there’s a stem plate mounted version too.
Hope include a helmet mount and extension lead, and new connectors make them impressively weatherproof.
The twin LEDs give a decent spread of light for overall awareness on tighter, slower trails and the big back-of-light switch is easy to ﬁnd.
The four different power settings are useful for prolonging rides beyond the relatively short two-hour minimum.
The lightset lacks punch and range at higher speeds compared to others though, and there’s no indicator to keep track of current brightness or remaining time.
