KnogBlinder Road 250 Headlight

Shine a light.

Knog’s Blinder Road 250 Headlight won’t speed up the Earth’s rotation to turn your early morning rides into full daylight affairs, but its 250 lumens of LED light will make it pretty easy to see where you’re going regardless. Despite its unobtrusive size, the Blinder packs eight different lighting modes into its waterproof case including single beam, dual beam, and flashing, and comes with a helmet mount and silicone mounting straps for wide and narrow bars.

At full gallop, the Blinder’s high beam illuminates up to 1000 meters of road—good luck finding a straightaway that long to test it, though. It’ll burn for up to six hours, and when it runs low, just use the integrated USB plug to bring it back up to full power in time for the next morning’s adventure.

Great secondary light

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use this light on my helmet along with a stronger light on my handlebars. It's great for being able to check my periphery and gears while riding. The helmet mount works great for my helmet.

Slick Design, Battery Could Improve

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Looks great, charges reasonably fast. Great for commuting but I wish it could hold a charge for longer rides. My only major issue is that the removable strap falls off too easily (not during use but during storage).
