10 thoughts on “Topeak HeadLux Helmet Light

  1. Strap too short to center light on helmet.Good light but the strap is short and I can’t attach it in the center of my helmet, only off to the side. The strap is Velcro, but there is only a small area that will stick to itself. This product could be greatly improved with a longer strap. The light is nice and bright. It would be better if rechargeable, but so far the battery has not run out.

  2. this is an improvement, although a tad costly.I am an avid road biker with some 35 years of experience. Because I live near the resort town of Shediac, NB summers get brutal with the traffic. I Have a flashing red/blue light on my seat post and this helmet light gives me another layer of security. It works because if I fail to turn it on before a ride, cars come closer to my bike, as they pass. The flashing light is just one more in the safety arsenal. The red could be brighter, that is always true. The front white I cannot comment on, as I do not ride at night. It is attached to my helmet with the extra piece of velcro. I wish it was a plug-in re-charge rather than a battery…but no major deal. Its not goofy looking on the helmet, rather small but powerful actually. Am pleased.

  3. Pas assez de LuminositéManque de luminosité même à pleine puissance comparativement à une autre lampe que j’ai

  4. the strap on this sucksThe media could not be loaded.

     tl;dr: straps are finicky for certain helmet designs but the light is decent enough for head visibility.it’s a nice and lightweight light and it’s bright enough as a helmet light to be seen. the front light definitely will not be good enough to use as a headlight.the provided straps are terrible, though. can’t mount this in the middle of the helmet cos the straps are a weird length and won’t stick onto itself beyond a certain position. had to do a lot of adjusting to get it to work and the only position it works is off-center.oh well.

  5. ConvenienceThis is a neat little headlight/taillight for your helmet.It securely mounts to your helmet with a little velcro strap. With the single button on top, you can toggle through the modes to control what kind of light you want (steady white/red, blinking white/red, etc.).Now be aware that the light is not bright enough to use as your sole light source. It is to be used primarily as a safety light. Because it’s helmet-mounted, you can aim the headlight at drivers at intersections to let them know you’re there. The rear red light is just a bonus.The light weighs so little that I keep it permanently mounted on my helmet and never have to worry about getting caught in the dark while on a ride (I also keep a handlebar-mounted light and a rear blinkie in my saddle bag).All in all, a great safety addition for your rides for just a few bucks.

  6. A little on the flaky sideI’ve had this for several months now. It worked pretty well at first, but it hasn’t held up particularly well under what I would consider mild use (~30 minutes of riding in the evening, usually not during the rain). In moderate cold weather/humidity (upper 20s to the mid 30s Fahrenheit), a few different things tend to happen. First, the brightness of the light diminishes very noticeably from the start of the ride to the end of the ride. Second, the switch sometimes loses the ability to turn off until it’s been back in the house for a while. Third, in the first mode where the white light is supposed to be steady and the red light is supposed to flash, there is a pretty substantial strobing effect with the white light. The only modes that work as advertised are both lights flashing or both lights steady. For less than $20 I’m not going to fuss about it, but when this one gives up the ghost entirely I’ll be looking for something better.

  7. Peace of mind that can be seen at nightAs other reviewers have stated these are battery hungry but am not surprised given the brightness of the lights. You can start a ride with both flashing but if battery is on it’s way out then only the rear will be going by the time you get to your destination. I would recommend changing batteries when the light intensity starts to fade a little. Can get a large pack of the button batteries for not much money so no big deal and they can be changed without removing the strapping of the light. This is a good job as the thing is a little fiddly to attach in the first place. Overall decent value.

  8. Good for being extra visibleBrought this light as I’ve seen a few other people using similar and thought that they helped make them stand out more at night.The light itself was easy to mount on my helmet, you do need to be care that you mount it in the right place so that both lights can be seen. The front does give off a reasonable amount of light, not to be used as a main light of course but if you want to check your speed or something then you can see well enough.Certainly a good choice if you want something to help you be more visible in conjunction with your other lights.

  9. Nice compact additional bike lightI have this attached to my bike helmet and is a nice compact additional bike light.Easy to operate with three light options, and reasonably bright, not bright enough to use as a main light though. A bit tricky to mount as the base is flat so it wont hold steady on a curved surface like a bike frame or bike helmet but its ok the Velcro strap is pretty secure as well and comes with a strap cushion cover for use inside your helmet, batteries included so overall not a bad price.
