My setup includes: 1) Backup light, which is a Blackdiamond Ion. Takes a single AAA Li battery. Tiny. Waterproof and good enough to read maps, narratives and limp along to a SS. 2) Helmet lamp, which is a Lupine Piko. Has a wireless handlebar remote so can switch on during technical descents without taking my hands off the bar. Attached to a 3,5mAh smartcore battery (the bat has some red LED’s that can flash and are a backup rear light in effect. 2100lumens will seem like overkill, and is for touring, but for racing ive found it very useful for night nav to see features you can’t with a lower power light…battery life astounding. Generaly off, but switched on for map / narrative referral (low low power) and technical riding (high power) 3) Handlebar mounted light 2 options. For the shorter races and touring where I’d only need limited or only 2 or 3 nights with no charge, a 2nd Lupine Piko on the barbwith a 6,5 or 13,5 mAh battery. Lupine system is comprehensive. Lupine 2 allows light and odometer to be connected and simultaneously charged/ and or cellphone charge from the battery. Racing RASA would choose my SON Dynamo to Synewave Beacon through a flow through battery (Voltaic). This means load shedding not an issue and can charge odometer, headlamp battery and cell without Eskom, only 700lumen, but more than enough for roads, also has a banana plug connector to keep linens up at low speed. 4) Rear light, Spez USB / Ryder USB chargeable red tail light with backup from Lupine Smartcore Battery LED’s Lupine are expensive, but have had no issues in 4 years untill this R2P ( headlamp Bluetooth connection failed, so sending in for repairs).
