BEAL Be Visi headlamp test



This lamp has been designed for use in the city or in dimly lit areas. During your night training, it's important in town to be seen by motorists. Be Visi is the lighting concept that allows you to be seen from all directions. This headlamp is made up of fixed or flashing light sources at the front and rear, to which are added reflective strips on the sides for 360° security during your night runs. The rear lamp has 2 colors, white for mild weather, and red for fog/light rain. Personally, I have often used red flashing on the back. The rear light source is independent of the strip. It can therefore also be fixed elsewhere, for example I clipped it on a backpack while going to work by bike.

I tested the lamp in the morning before daybreak and in the evening after dark. I accumulated a total of 55km in about 5 hours.

This lamp is very easy to position on the head, the adjustment is easy and its maintenance in place impeccable.

I used it mainly in the city in bright places but I also tested it in very dark places. Even if it illuminates enough in full power to see where you're going, I strongly not recommend it in places where the ground would be dented, because the discernment of the relief is not easy. It's better to stay on very flat places without ruts.

It perfectly fulfills its mission of making the runner visible, especially with its flashing modes. The reflective stripes all around the head is really a plus to be even more visible. Personally I also used it to go to work by bike. The advantage of having a light on the head is to be able to quickly signal to motorists by turning the light towards them.

This headlamp is affordable (35 euros). It's easy to use and you can really adapt it to your preferences. To be used for night racing in the city. It's not suitable for trail running.
If you are looking for a headlamp for trail running, I recommend the Led Lenser H14R2 headlamp.
