The R8 LED is Hope’s most powerful light: 3,000 lumens on max power!!! We could dwell on that figure for a bit, however it’s best categorised as ‘amazing’. In our own tests on the dirt, we found that we could remain as competitive as during the day. If it’s in the zone; you’ll see it. What more could you wish for? Oh, ‘looks’? Yes, it definitely has those too.

It’s eight LEDs work together to reduce shadows by softening them with it’s incredible ‘glow’. You can also raise it higher than a regular light to ensure that it illuminates low hanging tree branches as well, all without losing sight of the trail.

Of course, it can also power the District+ Rear Light from it’s battery, if you require it to. Just remember to turn it down a bit if you’re navigating between people! Alternatively, mount both batteries and use the District+’s battery pack for the ride home.

If you’re serious about riding hard at night, this is a very good investment!
