Some of you may remember that I tested out, and reviewed the Knuckle Lights Advanced back in January. Knuckle Lights are a great tool for safety for any runner that ventures out for their daily runs early in the morning or later at night.
Back in July, I was given a chance to try out the Knuckle Lights Color. There are 3 color choices to choose from; Pink, Blck, and Blue. I choose the Blue set (pink wouldn’t look too good on me). Just like the Advanced set, the Color sets come with 2 lights. They also have 120 total Lumens, they are waterproof, and come with 2 AA batteries. They have 3 setting: High, Low, and Blinking.
The difference between the Knuckle Lights Advanced and Knuckle Lights color is simple, power source. The Advanced set isrechargeable and the color set takes AA batteries. Basically it’s up to personal preference. With the Advanced on the high beam setting, last around 5 hours. With the Color set, My batteries lasted just over 15 hours before the batteries finally died on me this morning. So I got a little over 3 weeks in with batteries that were included with my Knuckle Lights Color before they died.
The lights connect with magnets that connect the pair of lights together. This makes it easy to keep track of your nights and possibly not lose them.
I have been running with the Knuckle Lights Color for a few weeks. They have been very comfortable to hold while running. They have adjustable, soft silicone straps for maximum comfort and the ability to adjust them as you wish.
The best way to test them out is to run in the dark (of course) and see how oncoming cars react. There is a noticeable difference in drivers reactions including drivers moving to the other side of the road far soon than when wearing just reflective gear.
If you are like me and run during the early morning hours or late at night, you have got to get a set of Knuckle Lights. Not only will they alert cars that you are out there, but they will help you see where you are going. Keep yourself safe!
