A while back, I heard about Knuckle Lights from my friends Bari.
As soon as I saw them, I was like…
Hold on, there is a solution to my early morning running darkness issue?!? WOW
I have had 2 BIG spills involving blood and multiple less scary accidents.
All while running in the early morning, pre-dawn hours here in Trinidad.
(I am clumsy, but to be fair, the sidewalks and paths here are very uneven)
Plus, the sun sets quickly here too.
One minute it’s light out and the next, pitch black.
So, I sent an email off and before I knew it…
I had my own pair of Knuckle Lights to review and try out. Thanks a bunch Dan!
In early 2010, Dan Hopkins, the founder of Knuckle Lights was training for a marathon.
Like most runners, he had to do most of his training early in the morning.
Not liking carrying anything in his hands while running (that’s me) and after having issues with uncomfortable headlamps…
He designed Knuckle Lights. GENIUS.
Knuckle Lights are the “first and only light designed to be worn on your hands, in the perfect position to light your path and be seen on your next run or walk in the dark.”
I love that the lights come with batteries and easy to read instructions.
I opened and was running in less than 5 minutes.
Each light has 3 settings – high, low and flashing.
When I ran in the evening, I used the highest setting at first.
But eventually, I like the flashing setting best.
The flashing beam illuminates and also draws attention that something is moving and not just a street light or car beam.
Things that make Knuckle Lights a must-own running accessory
- Dramatically increased my visibility (no more tripping over uneven running paths, sidewalk cracks or tree roots) - The lights are BRIGHT - Comfortable to wear and easy to hold - Easy to use and switch between settings - Adjustable - Lightweight
They retail for around $40 for the pair.
Knuckle Lights are giving my readers $5 off per set – coupon code is KLTHA5
