Glowworm X2 Mk3

The X2 gives the kind of programmability that you only used to get with super expensive German lights. While it’s not quite up to German levels of fanaticism, it’ll suit trail riders everywhere who are after a great, versatile light for not too much cash.

Lupine Piko 4

A superbly well-made product. Easy to use and programme, and efficient in operation. A fair amount of cash for a backup or second light, but if running it as your sole source, you’ll get on fine.

Silva Trail Speed Elite 2

It’s a well-made tiny, multi-purpose light. To increase the number of helmets it would fit, providing a strap would have been great.
