What is the best headlamp for running?
The Ledlenser NEO series are the best running headlamps on the market. Light and compact, they will sit comfortably on your head as you run. As you run you need to be able to see as much as you can of the space in front of you to keep you safe from obstacles. Illuminating the space in front of you with its wide beam, headlamps from the NEO series are the best running headlamp option.
How many lumens are needed for running headlamps?
The best running headlamps have around 400 lumens, sometimes less if you are running in high density areas. Trail running headlamps in remote areas on the other hand call for no more than 400 lumens.
How do I choose a running headlamp?
Some key areas to consider when choosing a running headlamp are the weight of the headlamp, the position of its battery pack and its accessories. The best running headlamps are light and compact due to the ongoing impact. As you run, the lighter the headlamp the more likely it will be able to stay in place as you run. The position of the battery pack is also a key consideration, typically you can opt for a rear or front battery pack location. Headlamps in the Ledlenser NEO Series has a rear battery pack, while the MH10 has a front battery pack with a lengthy run time.
How do I run with a headlamp?
The addition of a headlamp to your run should be quite seamless, so choose a headlamp that is light and compact enough to sit on your head comfortably for the duration of your run, with a wide beam to cover the span of your surroundings and you should be set.
Some headlamps come with alternate wearing options including chest straps, or clips to attach to a hat. If this is something you are looking for, be sure to invest in a headlamp with these additional accessories.
What is the brightest headlamp for trail running?
A running headlamp does not need to be exceptionally bright, particularly if you are running in highly populated areas, therefore 400 lumens is sufficient for a running headlamp. However, something important to consider is battery run-time, we would suggest you opt for a headlamp with a lengthy runtime to ensure you have enough light for the duration of your run. Headlamps like the Ledlenser NEO10R and MH10 have long run-times.
