Lupine Piko R4 SC £314.95

Mountain Biking UK - - WRECKED & RATED -

The tiny twin-LED Piko packs an im­pres­sive punch and ad­vanced con­trol tech, if you can af­ford it and don’t need epic run times. As it’s de­signed pri­mar­ily for hel­met use, the 1,800-lumen out­put is fo­cused tightly for high-def­i­ni­tion longdis­tance vi­sion that works great at high speeds. Min­i­mal weight means no neck strain is­sues, and the 120cm lead al­lows easy pocket place­ment. The sealed hard­shell bat­tery in­cludes an LED run time dis­play that dou­bles as a back-up rear light. Lupine’s Blue­tooth re­mote lets you change modes from the bar. Power out­put and menus can be changed man­u­ally or via a smart­phone app, which helps eke out the short full-power run times. Apart from an oc­ca­sional need to re­set modes, our long-term Pikos have been bombproof in heavy use, help­ing to off­set the high price.
