Edelrid's Tauri is one of the new generation of ultra-bright headtorches aimed at a range of sports from night walking to trail running.
GP Batteries in this latest offering bring three headlamps each with individual features to fit various needs. Starting straight out of the box, the packaging gives it a premium look but at a low cost. At £34.99 it sits in the middle with its offering compared to other headlamps on the market. Personally, I feel £35 for a rechargeable and waterproof headlamp is a good price for both new comers or those serious about the outdoors and sports.
One of the leading exponents of reactive lighting the Petzl RXP combines a powerful 215 lumens headtorch with an intelligent multi-beam system that automatically adjust the brightness and beam pattern according to the users needs. It's probably the most popular headtorch available for trail runners with software reducing manual operation to an absolute minimum.
The Princeton Tec Remix comes in a variety of flavours from basic to plus to rechargeable.Designed for runners with a 200 lumens top setting and the option to swap the rechargeable battery for 3 AAAs and a street price around £25 below its £105 RRP we had to put it to the test with our Parkrun enthusiast Jon Barton.
