Lupine Piko Dual-LED Featherweight Lamphead

Last updated 2011-02-08 - Send Feedback
Related: lighting

The Lupine Piko is the lamphead of choice for anyone looking for a very bright light with long runtime at absolutely minimal weight and bulk.

I have two Pikos:

  • One Piko is on a headstrap for use as a very bright but lightweight headlamp for evening meat grilling, under the desk searches, tent use, etc.
  • A second Piko is mounted semi-permanently as a daytime running light.

Mounting options

Lupine Piko (flashlight alternative) on headband

Most useful for runners, evening meat grilling, under the desk searches, tents, etc is the Piko headstrap.

The Piko can be mounted on the helmet conventionally (a velcro strap), or via a special UVEX helmet which accommodates the battery as well— an elegant solution.

A handlebar mount can also be used, and for that the Piko CNC-machined bar mount is a great way to go but this is intended for semi-permanent mounting, and requires removing the Piko mounting plate needed for headband or helmet mounting.

My mounting setup

Shown below is how I mount the Piko on my road bike. This is my daytime running light setup, something I highly recommend for all road cyclists. Total weight is under 200 grams.

A special UVEX helmet can be obtained which allows mounting both the Piko and the battery in one elegant setup as shown below.
