Knog Boomer Wearable light updated

Knog’s Boomer Wearable light has been given a major update in time for the fast-approaching autumn/winter season.

The Knog Boomer Wearable LED light is rated to 20 Lumens

The nights are quickly drawing in and the clocks will go back in just over a month so it’s time to get the lights out for the ride home from the office, and for those late afternoon rides that creep into the evening.

The new Wearable LED is a versatile light, with a small curved clip that’s held in place with four Rare Earth magnets, which combined have a pull strength of 1.8kg. That what means is the light isn’t going to detach from your jacket, backpack or other item of clothing you’ve fitted it to without a struggle.

As well as attaching to a piece of clothing, the light also has an integrated clip to can be used to fit it to a pocket, belt or bag.

We have previously experienced problems with Knog lights switching on and off over rough roads, but the Australian company have updated the electrical circuit to eliminate this bug. They’ve also take this chance to revise the compression seal between the two housings so it’s now completely waterproof.

And as for the lights output, it’s extremely bright thanks to a high-powered red LED rated to 20 Lumens. And with a burn time of 12 hours on constant and 36 hours on flash mode, it’ll last ages before the batteries need changing. There’s a choice of four modes too; strobe flash, strobe pulse, random strobe and constant.

The new Boomer Wearable will be available in the UK soon, available in six colours with a retail price of £20.49
