HOPE R2

PRICE: £182
WEIGHT: 289g

Originally designed for bike riders, this unbelievably bright torch is sure to get you noticed on the trails. With a maximum of 1300 lumens, the Hope R2 lasts a full night on 'Trail' mode and up to 30hr on the lowest setting. It’s a little heavier than most of the others on test, but it’s comfortable to wear, and the vibrant light is a real confidence booster on difficult terrain. 

VERDICT 

Added weight is a small sacrifice for serious brightness.
