    With a built-in sensor that automatically adjusts light output from 7 - 215 lumens without a single button press, the Petzl Tikka® RXP is ultimate lighting solution for runs, hikes and climbs.

    • When you're looking at an object at very close range, such as a map or piece of equipment, the Reactive sensor adjusts the light to a very wide beam with low output
    • As you make your way down the trail, the beam widens and adjusts to a medium light output in order to illuminate objects in the path
    • If you raise your head to see something in the distance, such as a trail marker or rappel anchor, the beam becomes focused and the light intensity increases
    • Reactive lighting keeps your hands free longer because you don't need to press a button to adjust light output; it also extends battery life by efficiently using power
    • Download OS by Petzl software to modify the functionality of your RXP headlamp; you can adjust light intensity, burn time and distance according to an activity
    • Create custom activity profiles or select from pre-configured profiles such as trail running, mountaineering and hiking; load these onto the RXP and you're ready to go
    • OS by Petzl software is available for download from Petzl at
    • Headlamp can also be operated in constant mode, which disables the sensor and gives you standard high, medium and low output settings
    • LEDs shine light 2 - 110m and outputs 7 - 215 lumens on high Reactive mode, 2 - 90m and 7 - 160 lumens on medium Reactive and 2 - 70m and 7 - 80 lumens on low Reactive mode
    • In constant mode, LED throws light 100m and outputs 215 lumens on high, 75m and 100 lumens on medium and 25m and 45 lumens on low
    • Red LED positioned to the side of the white LEDs lets you preserve your night vision or use the headlamp as a blinking light to increase your visibility in urban environments
    • Integrated 1,800 mAh lithium-ion battery recharges with the included micro USB cable via any standard USB port; battery charge indicator lets you know when charging is done
    • Battery recharges in 4.5 hrs. and can be recharged up to 300 times, making the battery life equivalent to that of hundreds of alkaline batteries
    • Battery provides 2.5 hrs. of use in high Reactive and constant modes and 10 hrs. in low Reactive and constant modes
    • Lithium-ion battery can be replaced with a 3 AAA batteries (sold separately) and a battery pack adapter (not included) for use when you can't recharge
    • Comfortable headband is easy to adjust; two-part construction at the back of the head supports the weight of the headlamp during active adventures
    • Two independent switches simplify use: one switch for choosing between Reactive and constant lighting, and the other to choose between high, medium and low
    • Lock function helps avoid accidentally turning the headlamp on when it's stashed in your backpack
    • Petzl R+ headlamp provides IPX4 water resistance for reliability in inclement weather

    Petzl Tikka RXP Headlampis rated4.0out of5by4.
    Rated5out of5byfromGreat for nighttime running!I bought this for a nighttime trail run. It was really bright and let me navigate the trail easily. It has a good strap and didn't bounce around on my head. Loved it! Really happy with it! My friends joked that I had a spotlight on my head :)

    Rated3out of5byfromNice Headlamp, but Not PerfectI'd give this product 3.5 stars if the website had that functionality. I was excited to see that Petzl had released a headlamp with their reactive light technology under $100. At half the price, 2+ grams less weight and with a considerably smaller footprint, I was sold. My experiences have been largely positive, but I'm always left wanting a little more. The headlamp has three LEDs: a red one, a white flood light and a white spot beam. The two white beams combine quite well to illuminate the ground immediately in front of and around you as well as a further distance away. In this regard, the lamp beats any single-LED headlamp I've used. The reactive lighting technology is very nice. It requires no input from the user and happens quickly. I wouldn't go so far to say it's unnoticable, but I don't find it distracting. It's nice to be able to see the distance and then look at something by your feet without blinding yourself or having to adjust the light. My biggest gripe with the light is the battery life. My old light (that used lithium batteries) used to only need a battery change occassionally if I was using it on a medium setting. This light's status LED will blink red (indicating that the battery is low) after about 1:30 to 2:00 of usage. If you're headed into the woods for more than a weekend, I wouldn't bring this light. There does appear to be a battery compartment that takes AAAs and fits this light, but of course it's sold seperately. Charging the light takes longer than I would have expected, but not overly long. The micro USB cable that comes with the headlamp is too short. It's six or eight inches long, but I'd rather see it at two or three feet. There's a decent chance you've already got a better one sitting around your house, though. The two-button operation is not extremely intuitive, but it works well enough. I don't think you'd have a problem operating the buttons in light or medium gloves, but you might have trouble with gloves that are particularly thick or inflexible.

    Rated4out of5byfromSome Good and BadI was really excited to try out this headlamp. I have a lot of different headlamps and I was excited about the sensor technology. After purchasing the headlamp I immediately put it on the charger. At first it didn't want to charge. I had to mess around with the connection numerous times and it finally started working. The sensor technology works great and as intended. I also really like the fact this headlamp runs primarly on rechargable battery pack. I got the white one (only one in stock). The white is a horrible color as it shows dirt or grime VERY easily. The redesigned headband looked cool at first, but because it's thinner, not too sure it is as comfortable as the old Tikka headband.

    Rated4out of5byfromStrong light, reactive light works wellUsed to walk dog in neighborhood at night. Encounters with coyotes, javelina,other dogs, and fast car drivers makes having a strong headlamp essential for safety. The wildlife will typically scamper away at a safe distance (although coyotes tend to hide, so headlamp will reflect their eyes so can avoid), drivers slow down (sometimes), and other dog walkers can cross street to avoid bothersome barking and growling. The reactive light will dim with the oncoming car headlights and lighted areas. The boost function is useful when needing to find the droppings left by dog. Had to recharge the headlamp after 2 weeks of night walks. Would have preferred rechargeable AAA but Li-Ion makes headlamp very light. Headband is ok, haven't fully adjusted to comfortable position but ok for the hour or so walk. Selecting modes was initially awkward. Button on top (offset to right side versus previous headlamps in center) is used to turn on/off (hold for 2 sec) and boost (2 short pushes). Button on right side is use to cycle through reactive/constant lighting modes. After a few uses though, becomes easy to control. Debated on selecting higher lumen headlamp, but with boost option, pretty strong beam. Recharging done with supplied microusb cable (very short) and is straightforward. Small LED indicates charge level (green -good, yellow, and red -recharge). So far, best headlamp I had (Black Diamond Storm, Petz Tikka Plus, and Rayovac K2).
