Our View - Black Diamond Sprinter 500 Lumens:
The original Black Diamond Sprinter headlamp was hugely popular with runners and general outdoor enthusiasts and the updated version look set to be even better thanks to the increased 500 lumen output.
It is purpose-built to handle everything from early morning urban runs to all night mountain running adventures. Ultralight and well balanced, the Sprinter 500 now features nearly twice the lumen output of previous versions, emitting 500 lumens on the light’s brightest setting.
Maximising flexibility for runners on the move, the Sprinter is Dual-Fuel compatible and can be powered with either the rechargeable BD 1800 Lithium-ion battery which is included when purchased or it can run off three AAA alkaline batteries as well.
The single front lens has an extremely smooth universal beam that minimizes hot spots and eliminates harsh transitions on the trail. It includes our intuitive single button interface for easy on/off actuation, PowerTap™ Technology for quick on the fly brightness adjustment, and variable dimming for fine tune adjustment of your brightness setting.
The Sprinter has a lightweight perforated elastic headband for increased breathability and the top strap is quickly added or removed depending on your preferences. With reflective logos and a rear red flasher, it will help to keep you visible on the road and on the trail.
The Sprinter 500 headlamp is our premium, purpose-built solution for runners who start early in the morning or for those who keep running long after the sun has set.
