HM65R-T vs HM65R-DT | DT or Not to DT, that is the question.

The Fenix HM65R-T headlamp – a trailblazer in the world of trail running since its debut in early 2021. Born from the success of the HM65R model, this headlamp boasts constant runtime circuits, an enhanced output, and the striking SPORT BOA Headband that catches the eye.

Fast forward to this year, and Fenix unveils the HM65R-DT, sparking the inevitable question: Fenix HM65R-T vs HM65R-DT – what sets them apart?

Let’s keep it straightforward:

-         The Secondary/Floodlight on the DT now features a focused TIR lens, maintaining a wide beam but with a distinct central hotspot for a brighter focal point.

-         The Secondary light adopts a warmer colour temperature, strategically chosen for improved visibility through fog and mist. Think about how warm light cuts through adverse weather conditions, unlike the harsh glare of bright white headlights.

And now, the exciting addition of COLOURS! The HM65R-DT is available in three vibrant options – the classic black body with a red headband, the sleek Dark Purple, and the lively Pink/Purple Nebula.


Here's the clincher: the battery, weight, and run times remain unchanged. It all boils down to whether you value the enhanced fog and mist-cutting ability, especially in the gloomy winter months of the UK.

So, Fenix HM65R-T or HM65R-DT? The choice is yours.

But wait, there's more! In addition to these stellar models, we present two more gems in the T trail running range – the HL18R-T and the HL32R-T. Perfect companions for short to mid trail races or those enchanting summer nights on the trail.
