Summary of products tested

We tested the Fenix ​​HL60R headlamp, ideal for running, caving and site lighting to fit into your helmet.

A lot of rechargeable batteries from the brand Canwelum to increase the power and increase the autonomy of your frontal Fenix ​​torch.

Features of the Fenix ​​HL60R

Today we are attacking a frontal torch from Fenix.This headlamp will be your ideal ally for all outdoor activities requiring free arms such as climbing, trekking and more.

This model has a power of 950 Lumens maximum with a range of almost 100 hours in low intensity lighting mode!You can light up to about 110 meters at full power, enough to see the obstacles in the night without being surprised at the last moment.

Features of the Fenix ​​HL60R:

  • 5 lighting modes with a maximum of 950 Lumens of power and 1 Lumens in low consumption
  • Lighting up to ~ 110 meters in powerful mode
  • 1 battery type 18650 (included in the box)
  • Made of aerospace grade aluminum alloy
  • Dimension:87 mm (Length) x 46mm (Width) x 51mm (Height)
  • Weight:200 grams with battery
  • Waterproof to IPX-8 (2 meters)

Our lab test

To carry out this test, we tested the lamp during two activities:a bike ride and running.Not much interest to test this frontal torch in laboratory since it is intended for activities where the body is moving.

Manufacturing quality

The quality of manufacture refers to the different materials that make up the device.And it would be an euphemism to say that the HL60R is built like a tank .

Indeed, this frontal lamp is almost entirely covered with metal, except the strap and the splint that hangs on the front.We also appreciate the strength of the strap, which, moreover, is manufactured with durable nylon and very elastic.

The model HL60R is therefore really tough but it will still have to take care of it, although it is shock resistant it will soon be damaged if it falls from your bike directly on the LED.

This front lamp has a high degree of protection for water resistance, namely the IP X8.This means that the HL60R is waterproof under 2 meters of water.Moreover, you can be sure that it will always work even during heavy rains.

In short

We remain on a Fenix ​​quality identical to torch flashlights.

What autonomy?

The Fenix ​​HL60R is powered by a 2600 mAh battery, but it is possible to buy and use a more powerful battery of 3400 mAh.

If you want to change batteries and have more power and autonomy, you can consult these:Canwelum. These are the batteries that are used most of the time.

Moreover, with a rechargeable battery of 3400 mAh, the autonomy varies from 48 minutes to maximum power and 100 hours in economic mode.

After our test, for running we will tend to adjust the lamp on the low consumption mode that illuminates within 30 meters which gave us a 29h autonomy.

For mtb it can be a more greedy and opt for the medium mode which will reduce the lighting time under 10 hours.The status of the battery is indicated by 2 red LEDs which will flash as soon as the battery level reaches a critical threshold.

In short

A real autonomy that is between 48 minutes and 90+ hours in eco mode.In other words you will have time to see, especially since this lamp is recharged in USB!

Power

To begin, it should be noted that this model has only one LED XM-L2.The light emitted is of neutral white color and the beam is fairly wide (8-10 meters in diameter).

This makes it perfect for cycling at night on one track and can see everything.The light covers a wide range of action in turbo mode.Personally during my balance by bike, I saw the road in full.

The 950 lumens will illuminate a very wide beam as you can see in the picture on the right.Nevertheless think that at this power the beam will dazzle the vehicles and people coming in front of you.

The lighting power varies depending on the selected operating mode.For example, in turbo mode, the lamp will use all its 950 Lumens for a maximum range of 110 + meters.While in normal mode, there will only be 150 Lumens used for a range of about 46 meters.

This model also has a specific “Red LED” mode which allows to illuminate to 1 Lumens via red lights in order to have a night vision that does not dazzle (but of short distance).

In short

With its 950 Lumens you will not lack power for activities requiring a large ray of light.In the majority of cases, we will use the modes of medium and low conso lighting for running and cycling for example.

Use and ergonomics

The strength of the lamp is not to the detriment of comfort.

Indeed, we did not feel great inconvenience after wearing the lamp on the forehead for 2 hours of cycling.

Like the majority of headlamps that have the device on the front, one will necessarily feel the weight of the electronics but nothing good wizard and one forgets it very quickly during the activity practiced.

With regard to the mode setting button, it is perfectly accessible once the lamp on your head even with the use of a pair of glove.Same for the on/off button, it is sensitive enough to light the lamp quickly and without difficulty.

In short

A head lamp that knows how to forget and that is easily adjustable once equipped.

Guarantee

The Fenix ​​warranty is 2 years for this lamp and even covers the LED unlike Mag-lite lamps!

Our opinion on the Fenix ​​frontale HL60R

After use, we are quite conquered by this model of very good bill proposed by Fenix.

What we like most about this model HL60R is the waterproofness, the brightness, the long life of the battery and the various practical elements (recharging micro-USB, indicator of the remaining battery level).

The autonomy is really good and adjustable according to your needs, especially if you buy a battery of higher capacity.

In short, a headlamp ideal for caving, climbing, trekking etc. thanks to its solidity, its lighting range and especially its neutral light and not cold (like many other lamps) which makes it possible to better discern the colors.

In summary, the Fenix ​​HL60R is recommended as the first headlamp if you do not have one and you have a small budget to invest in a quality product.

Better to invest in quality from the beginning, especially as this one is rechargeable and will hold over the long term if you take care of it.

Where can I buy the Fenix ​​HL60R?

If you have decided to buy your Fenix ​​HL60R, you are advised to take a look here to find the cheapest model of the market.
