Not everyone has the luxury of picking certain time slots for their runs. Some of us have to take what we are offered, and sometimes, those are periods of poor light conditions. Running lights may come in handy for any runner, but they are an absolute must for those who run in the dark or in low-light conditions. Not only do they help you differentiate the path ahead, but also keep you visible to other runners and drivers.
Types of Running Lights
Running lights come in a variety of styles and sizes, from headlamps to clip-on lights to chest running lights. Headlamps are great for hands-free lighting while running. If you want to keep your head untouched, clip-on lights provide the same benefits while being attached to clothing or backpacks for added visibility. The same goes for chest running lights. Running lights provide up to 500 lumens of light and have adjustable beams so you can customize your lighting needs. Other types of running lights include waist belts with LED strips, reflective vests that make you more visible from all angles, and armbands with flashing LEDs that increase your visibility even further.
