General information about our shipping
This thing is insanely bright. I needed a new handlebar light to replace my aging Cygnolite that I use in conjunction with my Lupine Piko helmet mounted light and it fits the bill perfectly. The battery however is cumbersome and heavy. It can be mounted onto your frame although it needed minor adjustments every so often while traversing rough terrain. The light comes with an extension cable and I was also able to put the battery in my jersey pocket, run the cable underneath my jersey and connect it to the R8 light with the helmet mount provided. It looks goofy as the light protrudes pretty high, but that's another way you could run it as long as you don't mind looking a little funny. The light by itself on your helmet isn't very heavy. There is no way however you're going to want to have the battery mounted onto your helmet. If you're in the USA and order this light, you're going to need an adapter that will convert a UK 3 prong plug to a US 3 prong. I was able to get one on Amazon for $6.00. The Hope R8 does not come with it. The battery takes a very long while to charge, I'd charge it the day before you plan using it. Also the battery will not take a charge if the battery is at a certain level according to the owners manual. I had to deplete some of the battery power, per the owners manual, upon receiving it so it would take a full charge, Something to do with how the battery interacts with the charger or something.
I trusted HOPE always provides high quality products. When I opened the package of the R8 Led Light, I appreciated a wide range of accessories attached. I also satisfied with multiple light levels and the battery life indicator. However, the main drawback is the weight of the battery. It's too heavy!
Awesome bike light. Very high quality. Hope R8 is an excellent package with many accessories. Handle bar mount, helmet, an a nylon head rig if your not wearing a helmet. Illumination is outstanding. The light is a little heavy for a helmet light but still usable. Best bar mounted and paired with another smaller helmet light. The one thing Hope needs to offer is a wireless remote option for their lights to mount on a helmet. That way you are not blinding your fellow cyclist everytime you look at him. The button is pretty hard to Reach on top of a helmet. I know bikeray IV has this feature., but the R8 is a better light.
This is a very powerful light; I actually bought it to use with my yacht as I have other hope lights for mountain biking, it is a super bright light, quite heavy of course but super bright! Usual Hope quality
What other company will fix a well out of warranty item at no cost.... Hope did for me hence why I will never buy from anyone else! Beyond comparable service however quality is also superb, and the level of light and display of the light is phenomenal.
Excellent, lamp, it weighs a lot, but I use the smaller batteries from my R4 for shorter rides..Stupidly bright, really lights up the trail. Great build quality as you can always expect from hope.
This light is very impressive, and its overall power is like no other bike light that I have ever used. Highly recommended - Whats not to like ??
The hope R8 defines new standards in quality, fit and performance. It is in effect bottled day light, you will not get a better light on the market today. The mounting system used on the R8 places the light exactly where you want it over the front wheel. The finish is outstanding and although this light is not cheap you must be aware that hope never made it to fit a price range, they made it to be incredible.
The usual hope quality no surprises there. The amount of light this thing puts out is amazing the spread is brilliant. Its like having the sun in a little cnc box. The lamp is not too heavy for the helmet with the battery in a back pack. Only small downside is the battery is a bit heavy but this much light output for as long as it can do needs a good battery. Amazing bit of kit.
