Amazing! Great design, lightweight and easy to run with. Plus for the size this sucker is super bright! plenty of light on those dawn patrol missions for sure! So much better than my previous BD headlamp that I used for running but was really made to hike in. Perfect Trail Running headlamp!!! My only grip would be the during it lasts on high. Not an issue most of the time- but if I start doing ultra's it could be an issue.

I love this for running at night. The middle strap on top is what sold me since it prevents the headlamp from bouncing while I run. Also, I recently lost my charger. I called their customer service line and they took care of me with a replacement charger. Thanks!

Super great product. I use it skiing and running. It is perfect for both. Light weight. I don't even notice it on my head. A great look and I couldn't be happier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mikhail Great for road runners
After I saw the Sprinter in action during our late night run I went ahead and ordered one on Amazon. It stays very well no bouncing and I like the weight distribution between front and back. It covers a large area ahead of you, not just a spot which is great for a trail run and it is still very bright (you can't look at it). One big complaint though! Black Diamond made the strap about 2 inches shorter than they did a year ago and even extended full length it hurts my head. I didn't think it will be a such deal breaker. Please return the old strap!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sean Two runs - Best running headlamp so far
Living in Seattle, winter running before or after work always means running in the dark. I've used a couple different headlamps for running, including some that weigh less than the Sprinter. But after two runs with the Sprinter, I'm confident it's the best I've used so far, by quite a long way. It doesn't bounce like other headlamps, which I presume is because it's purpose built for running, as opposed to many other "do-it-all" type headlamps. It's super bright -- cars that used to ignore me now stop for me when I'm trying to cross the street -- and I love the rear-facing red blinking light. Basically, a perfect running headlamp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tamara Secure, comfy, and bright
Battery life is great and charging is simple and secure. I've only used the lamp for running with the extra top strap - but as such it's stable and not shakey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stan Ideal for running
I have had this headlamp for a couple of years, and I love it. The fit is comfortable, the lamp does not bounce around, and it gives plenty of light. I especially like the rear strobe for running on streets and roads in the pre-dawn hours. The rear strobe can be turned off, which is a great feature for the the comfort of the person running directly behind me. I like that the front lamp is dimmable, and I really like the strobe feature for the front lamp. When it starts to get light, and I no longer need the lamp to be able to see, I use the front strobe to make myself more visible to motorists.
Somehow I lost the charger for this headlamp, and I just purchased a replacement. The customer service rep was knowledgeable and helpful. I'm glad I could purchase simple a replacement charger without having to get an entire new headlamps and charger.

Great headlamp for running...I especially love the minimal weight, auto-on for the rear flasher (when front is turned on), and perfect amount of lumens.
