The Hope R2 is a versatile all-round light from the leading manufacturer of robust powerful torches. The R2 comes with a head harness allowing it to be used as a powerful torch for running and use in the outdoors when you need to move quickly and hands free. It also comes with a handle bar mount as well as a helmet mount making this another superb option for the mountain biker or even commuter. Output is governed by whether you are using Race or Trail sequence. Both have 3 modes with Race mode having the greater output. The mode is chosen by toggling through the power button with each mode lighting the power button with a different colour.
The R2's prodigious output is generated using two Cree LEDs, producing a very even white light, combined with refrractors that are designed to create an even flood beam pattern. The LEDs are built into a sturdy machined aluminium body which is designed for maximum heat dispersal. By dispersing the heat so effectively the R2 is able to improve efficiency and so increase battery life. The R2 comes with a 2 cell battery though is is compatible with the Hope 4 cell bettery which is sold separately.
