Muon [Old] cree led headtorch
The ultralight 68g Muon is our lightest torch but still packs 134 lumens for technical trail running. Requires 1 x AA battery and is rechargable compatible. Comes with free Blip rear red caution light
Here at AKHQ, we are situated fairly close to the Peak District- this gives us plenty of opportunity to nip out after work and immerse ourselves in the sun-drenched gritstone surrounding. That is until darkness befalls upon us!
But that just increases the fun- because then we can get the gadgetry out! Muon is perfect for those of us that enjoy a bit of trail running in the evening. But of course Muon is not just limited to that-with 134 lumens of light it is ideal for ultra-races, hiking, climbing, dog-walking and camping.
Muon is lightweight; a mere 68 g which gives it a barely-there feel and great stability during wear. High powered CREE centre LED offering up to 134 lumens and 2 outer LEDs offering up to 31 lumens of spread floodlight beam.

Love This Head Torch
I am very impressed with this torch, the beam is very bright and the flood light has a very wide angle, handy for around camp. At this price I might buy a second as spare.
great little (inexpensive!) torch
excellent bit of kit for running in the dark or walking the dog.
Brilliant for Night Running
Switched to a Muon as was looking for something lighter than a gamma for night running. Its fab! I love the different easy to switch between modes including a white flood for great peripheral vision and a powerful spot for distance lighting. Comes with a great blip red light on the back and a useful pouch to store the torch in.
Brilliant (haha) value
This is part of my first Alpkit order and I'm impressed with the whole lot. This little head torch provides plenty of light from the central LED for a night run on paths and footpaths and the side LEDs provide a reasonable level of light for a ramble. on either setting. I was concerned that the plastics would be cheap and brittle but they feel very similar if not identical to those used in some of the better known brands. And the battery lasts much longer than the quoted times. Get one!
Fantastic Head Torch!
I'd been wondering which torch to get for a while and saw this mentioned on a forum. after seeing the discount price, I ordered two so my partner could have one too. I was NOT disappointed! Although only used on a flat hour long stroll, there was more than enough light, in fact I'd happily use this on my MTB! Very impressed, and I'm thinking about ordering a few more to stash at the bottom of various hiking bags. Thanks ALPKIT!!!
Brilliant piece of kit - highly recommend.
Needed lights for me and my 10 year old for early morning cross country runs. Brilliant - easy to operate, stays on the head, lightweight, and bright. Free red blip thing very handy for when we are on the roads: makes me and my son feel safe. Battery compartment is a little fiddly as pointed out by other reviewers, but just be gentle with it. Would also like to say that correspondence with the team at Alpkit was brilliant, down to the hand written compliment slip included with the order - a really nice touch! Thanks.
Average budget head torch
After years of using the Gamma, I gave the Muon a go (after stupidly leaving my Gamma on top of car, then drove off). It is perfectly adequate for running down country lanes at night, but the focused beam is not as strong as the Gamma (probably due to only having 1 battery) and when I took place in a night time trail race, it was next to useless - I kept having to rely on the light from other runners around me.
Firstly the Muon is light and small, it's fine for walking but for trail running I find it isn't sufficient to run confidently. In a group with other headtorches it's of very little use as it's nearly always outclassed. Interesting that other runners rate the Gamma as better even though it's lumen output is higher.
