November 15th 2021

As the industry leader in the trail running market partnering with Ultra-Trail Show organized by UTMB, HK100, Jiangnan 100, UTMS (Ultra Tour Mt. Siguniang) and more trail races, we have designed and released various lightweight running gear solutions including headlamps, carbon fiber energy bricks and running belts which have gained a worldwide popularity in the trail running community.


After thorough analyses and researches on the habits from thousands of trail runners in the past years, we have selected the premium materials for our latest products and implemented an ultra lightweight design with minimalist elements in every detail.


"Runners place great emphasis on the gear weight as every gram matters in trail races. They usually feature a long distance and a harsh environment. The lighter we need to carry, the easier we can run.", the advice for the UT27 from NITECORE ambassador Jiasheng Shen.



The UT27 has an unimaginable light weight of 74g with extreme simplicity to make you feel zero sense of weight whether TIR lens system, body, headband or bracket. It has dual hybrid power source, powered by the HLB1300 Li-ion battery pack with a USB-C charging port to avoid power outages outdoors and compatible with 3 x AAA batteries. With the polarity labels easily seen in the dark, the glow-in-the-dark battery compartment is designed for locating and replacing the battery with no hassle.


The UT27 is equipped with dual beam, spotlight and floodlight. 520 Lumens Search Mode is suitable for short-term searching; in 400 Lumens Spotlight mode, it provides penetrating long throw suitable for signage searching or in rain, snow or fog; in 200 Lumens Floodlight mode, the lighting is ultra smooth and comfortable, ideal for downhill and high-speed running; and 55 Lumens Floodlight is for going uphill and short-range illumination.



Based on the max output of 520 lumens, the UT27 provides warm white penetrating spotlight (3000K) with the max beam throw of 128 meters and better penetrating ability in rain, snow or fog and cool white TrueVision floodlight (5700K) with precisely calculated lens curve and consistent illuminance to ease the visual fatigue. Meanwhile, it is equipped with an auxiliary red light, effectively protecting the night vision and ideal for wildlife observation, stargazing, emergency response, night photography and more.


The UT27 has Power Indication and Lockout Mode designed for preventing accidental activation so that the UT27 can be stored or transported in the pocket or the backpack. Included diffusing stuff sack is creative to turn the headlamp into a camping lantern or an ambient light, and store it when it is not in use.


The elastic and breathable headband with silicone sweat diverting strip can divert sweat to the sides of the head, preventing irritation on the eyes that caused by sweat ingression, while preventing sliding of the headband. And the reflective strips effectively guarantee the safety of the wearer at night. The UT27 also has a 90° adjustable tilt angle to ensure no blind spots combined with the included headband and bracket. And 180° full opening of the battery compartment is more convenient to replace the battery with no hassle. It is all weather applicable as IP66 rated and 1m impact resistant.
