The R8 light is Hope’s flagship light model, which it claims “turns night into day”; a bold call
It’s officially autumn now (according to the Met O) so here’s a lights review for you.
Small, compact and self-contained. A no nonsense choice, that throws more than enough light to tackle the techiest of trails.
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.
A cleverly designed, well-made bit of kit. The single LED packs a mighty punch, in a compact, light housing.
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.

Simple to use, bombproof and yet easy to program to be as complicated as you’ll need
