Disclaimer: I received Knuckle Lights to try and review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews! As always, all opinions are my own and I was not further compensated for my review!
I don’t know about you, but unless I am coated in reflective gear, I don’t feel completely safe while out running in the early morning or evening hours.
While reflective gear is great for other runners or cars to see me, it is not the best for seeing everything around me!
I have used several different brands of headlamps, but somehow, I always end up holding it in my hand so I can see the road better…
When I had the opportunity to test and review Knuckle Lights, through being a BibRave Pro, I jumped at the opportunity to be able to see better on the road! As you have read before, I have several tools and reflective gear to keep me safe on the road. But actually SEEING the road is just as important!
I typically run in the zero-dark-thirty of the morning…and running in areas that have adequate lighting is not always feasible!
Back country roads, main roads, side streets, and old neighborhood streets are where you can typically find me! Most of these areas are not well equipped with street lighting and my 20/20 eyes aren’t always the best when it comes to seeing my way.
Knuckle Lights are small, lightweight running lights that you wear across the front of your hands – the front of your fingers with a closed fist. The adjustable strap is perfect to modify the tightness from bare hands to thick gloves. These running lights are also waterproof – so you can run with them in any weather!
The lights come as a pair (one for each hand) and have 3 light settings – high, low, and blinking. With 280 lumens, Knuckle Lights not only help me see the road, but other runners and drivers can see me – and from a good distance! Even running with one running light, I am able to see where I am going without any problems!
One of the great perks to these running lights is that they are rechargeable! No need for extra battery purchases and upkeep! I set the small base station by the front door and lock-and-load before heading out!
Green means go; Red means charging.
While I do not always charge after my run (they sometimes just get tossed in the pile of post-run stuff), I have not had any issues with low battery life or dying lights.
Update : per Knuckle Lights website, the battery life per charge is 4 hours on high power, 8 hours on low power, and 14 hours on the blinking setting.
Another great perk of these lights is that the two hand-held lights are magnetic to one another! This way, I place them together and toss them in my bag, and no lost lights!
