Bilby Run 400 Headlamp
This product in currently out of stock
The Bilby headlamp range, an instant Kickstarter-classic, gets even better with the all-new Bilby run!
Our 400 lumen Bilby run headlamp, now comes in a translucent, one piece silicon strap which allows the red side illumination lights to shine through the sweat resistant strap. Fully customisable on ModeMaker, the Bilby run features 7 pre-programed modes with run times reaching past 100 hrs.
The Bilby Run comes in 4 flashy colours, and is the perfect trail-side companion for runners looking to light their way.
MULTIPLE LIGHT OPTIONS
The 5 LEDs on the Bilby Run are optimally placed for their individual purposes – a high beam to see by, 2 elliptical beams for mid and wide beam angles, a red light for night light purposes and downlights for reading. Within each mode there are four brightness settings. On the brightest setting, the Bilby Run has a range of up to 100m. Another unique feature of the Bilby Run is that the beam angel can be manually adjusted via an electronic tilt function, allowing the user to set to the perfect beam function for their use.
INTEGRATED USB RECHARGEABLE
The Bilby Run also features an integrated USB connector as part of the lighting pod – which means no cables to lose or break. To recharge the headlamp, simply plug the pod into a USB-A port, and you’ll have a full charge in just 4 hours from flat.
MATTE SILICONE FINISH
The Bilby Run’s body and strap are moulded in transparent matte finish medical grade silicone that won’t tangle your hair. It’s easy to clean and is adjustable to fit head circumferences from 300- 660mm. The extremely comfortable silicone strap adjusts with a toggle. Once you’ve found your size you can set and forget or adjust on the fly.
RED LIGHT HALO EFFECT
A unique feature of Knog’s running headlamps is the Red-light – Halo-Effect. As a result of its construction from transparent silicone, when the headlamp is in operation a red halo light effect can be selected which helps increase the user’s visibility to other road users. This feature has been specifically designed to keep runner’s highly visible to other road users and works independently of the main headlamp beam.

Bright, easy to use, comfortable. Light enough that on an ultra I'll just carry 2. Or 3.
My only gripes would be that the ModeMaker app is no longer available for Mobile- only Windows/Apple desktop. And, the functionality is fairly limited. You can't create your own light combination modes, only select from an existing set. Most of which are better suited for going to a costume party as a Cylon or KITT from Knight Rider. I can make do with the available set, but there are some practical things I'd like that just aren't available.
Best lamp I‘ve ever had.
This is a simple to use and comfortable head lamp. I wanted something that I could toss into my pack for running while traveling and this one fits the bill nicely. It charges via USB-A without the need for any additional cables and I can choose which features I want to enable using the ModeMaker app: I can make it flexible or dead-easy with one mode available if that's all I need.
The silicone band is comfortable and adjusts easily while maintaining enough tension that it stays put but doesn't give me a headache like some others do.
Since this is new, I am still learning the controls as I decide what I actually need/want to have available. I generally don't mess with the light too much while I am running, so a basic config with the "boost" ability and a low-power setting are probably all I need. I can see how all of the options may be overwhelming for some people, including me. However, once I decide, stripping it down to only what I need is simple and is what I'll do.
I really like this Bilby Run 400. I've used it on a number of night runs and have had plenty of light to navigate my routes. So far the routes have been on bumpy streets that are under construction. Fits well and stays put.
I like the fact that the head lamp is detachable from the head strap. This makes washing the head strap very convenient without fear of water logging the lamp. The lamp itself throws out a lot of light while not getting too hot.
