For my 24h race Spitfire Scramble, I was given a pair of these Knuckle Lights. I have heard about them before as my team running buddy Corey were using them at last years event.
Last year I only had a head torch, but clearly the one was not bright enough so I had to hold another torch in my hand.
When I received them I was very please about the fact that they are rechargeable via USB and I could adjust them for my small hands.
I think this was one of the brightest lights I have seen during the race. Why? It’s a LED technology with 140 Lumen for each hand. The picture above shows a total of 280 Lumen in one hand. I ran 2x at night and I had no idea how long they would last. They have 3 power settings and on my first lab I had them on “High”. Amazing! I was so excited how bright they were that I got lost on the way. When I found my way back on the course again, I missed a few miles.

My 2nd night run was at 2:30am. I felt tired and the more important it was to have a good night view, not to trip over and fall. When Cory handed me over the relay button I asked how the lights were doing on a 2nd run and she was fine by using them on the 2nd power setting. And so did I. One and a half hours later, when my tired legs managed to cross the finish line, the Nuckle Lights were still working. People were cheering and loved the strong lights.

I would say they are also ideal for anyone walking a dog. You have the lead and the Knuckle Light in one hand and the other hand is free.
At the end of the night I was glad that I had a pair for the race and I will use them next year again.
How do you brighten up your run or walk!
Thanks that I could test the Knuckle Light however the review and opinion was all mine.
