Up until fairly recently, helmet lights for mountain biking at night were pretty much only really worth bothering with when used in conjunction with a decent handlebar-mounted system. The beams were either too weak, or too narrow. Even when used with a bar-mounted light, the weight of the lamps and mounts of old-style helmet lights made them uncomfortable to wear for prolonged periods as you had to wear your helmet uncomfortably tight to prevent the dreaded wobble. Nowadays though we’re living in a new, golden age of helmet lights. Modern systems are powerful enough to be used without a second, bar-mounted light. They’re light enough to be unnoticeably comfy to wear on your regular riding helmet, tightened up to its regular degree. They illuminate wherever you point your head. This is a great thing.
