I fell in love with Knuckle Lights last year when I tested the rechargeable knuckle lights. You can read my review here. I have seen the beautiful vibrant colors that they come in now, and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try one of these pairs too.
I’m a total wimp, I don’t want to run in the dark. Sometimes, I have to. Like Ragnar for instance. Knuckle lights have saved me on my night runs when my headlamp crapped out on me.
The new line of color knuckle lights is not rechargeable. They operate on a battery. That’s a bummer, but these are still pretty invaluable. These arrived just before Christmas, so it was time to head out for a “Christmas light run”, one of my favorite things to do this time of year. Obviously, it wasn’t pitch black out, but I certainly appreciated the extra light these provided, as well as an opportunity to make sure I am seen more easily to others!
I really, really hate headlamps. The bobbing and bouncing is obnoxious. Plus, they sometimes don’t fit me quite right and slip. Since I have had both ankle and knee issues in the past, I’m super careful about where I step. I need the place LIT UP! To me, there is no comparison of the light you get (both brightness and width of the floodbeam) from a knuckle light compared to a headlamp.
Another cool feature that knuckle lights have is that when you are storing them not in use, they have magnetized sides so that you can store them together as a pair and don’t have to worry about losing them.
When I tried them out for the first time, they seemed just as bright as my rechargeable knuckle lights, even though they are half the lumens. I honestly couldn’t tell the difference at first glance. 120 is about the same as my headlamp. The fit is comfortable, it is an adjustable strap. The “colors” line comes in a vibrant pink, blue and black.
Summary of Features:
· 120 TOTAL LUMENS — The extra bright lights emit a wide flood beam, providing a steady, even light in front of you that does not bounce, even with your arms moving.
· 2 LIGHTS PER SET — The units connect together magnetically for storage
· ADJUSTABLE . The silicone straps easily adjust to fit any size hand, even over gloves.
· LIGHTWEIGHT They weigh less than 3 ounces each!
· 3 POWER SETTINGS — High, Low and Blinking.
· BATTERIES INCLUDED — Each unit operates on 1 X AA battery
· WATERPROOF — The units are fully waterproof, and will operate in below freezing temperatures down to -20 Celsius
Ok, here is the honest truth. These color knuckle lights are great at $39.99 and I absolutely recommend them. However, if you have the extra $20, I think the Rechargeable Knuckle Lights offer a better value $59.99 since you never need to worry about batteries and they do have twice the lumens. Either way, you can save 15% on your order with code “BIBRAVEPRO”! I think these are well worth the money if you do a lot of running in the dark. I know I feel safer with them.
More perks – they offer a 5 year warranty, a 90 day money back guarantee, and free shipping! You can learn more and shop here. They are the perfect gift for runners in your life. Safety first!
