Gloworm X2 £174.99
Gloworm have been evolving the extremely adaptable X2 over the years and this latest version is the toughest yet. The cables – a previous weak point – are now properly stout, with bombproof connections to the head, wired remote and boxy battery. It comes on a helmet clip mount, with bar and GoPro mounts included. The X2 is light and angle-adjustable enough to work with a helmet-peak mount too. Its three-mode trail menu can be custom tuned. You can even change the default tightly-focused, clean-edged output by unscrewing the faceplate and switching to the diffuser or spot lens included. Small LEDs set deep into the battery face make the five-stage run time indicator slightly awkward to read but battery life is reasonable for its small size and reliability has been rock solid now the cables are sorted.
