Hong Kong is a region that is characterised by its busy streets and its mountainous surroundings, and one popular way of getting around is by cycling and that is exactly how Edward Jacobson gets around. He makes the use of this method of transport to regularly cycle the Sha Tin to Tai Po route, taking in the beautiful Tolo Harbour district as he goes. Within such a cityscape safety is of vital importance and it is for this reason why he uses the Unilite PS-H4. This Head Torch provides the perfect companion for cycling within Hong Kong’s many districts. It is often difficult to be seen in an environment where there is the presence of so many existing lights and illuminations. The PS-H4 gets around this with its non-threatening 2Hz safety flashing mode, providing the wearer with a way of alerting passing traffic but in a way that won’t dazzle and disorientate.
When Edward uses the headlight in the mountainous areas of Hong Kong where light is minimal, the PS-H4 can be turned onto high power mode, providing Edward with a flexible light source that will be directed by the position of his head and not stationary. This has many advantages over just using the rigid bike lights, as he can see directly in his own eye line vision, lighting the way to provide a safe cycling experience on what can be some very tough and arduous routes. The PS-H4 can also be directed in a 90-degree tilt, which enables Edward to point the light downwards or straight ahead, depending on the road incline/decline. The PS-H4 uses 3 x AAA Duracell batteries and has a runtime of 7 hrs 30 mins on high and up to 60 hrs on the lowest setting with a water resistant rating of IPX4.
