  • Zip Dyneema® retractable cord allows the headlamp to be worn on the head or wrist, or attached to any other support, such as a tent pole or bicycle seatpost
  • Single high-output LED provides even, white lighting throughout your field of vision with no blank spots in the beam; special lens optimizes the reach of the beam to 40m
  • Red LED positioned to the side of the white LED lets you preserve your night vision or use the headlamp as a blinking light to increase your visibility in urban environments
  • Push-button switch easily changes between 3 white lighting modes (high, low and flashing) so you can choose the appropriate light level for the task at hand
  • Also change between 2 red lighting modes (continuous and blinking)
  • White light on low level provides up to 185 hrs. of use and on high up to 58 hrs.
  • Hold down the on/off switch to change between red and white lighting modes
  • Battery charge indicator light comes on when the beam distance diminishes to 5m and when there is only 50% battery life remaining for proximity lighting
