Continuing the success of their Tikka headtorch range, Petzl have introduced the Tikka 2 Plus. It offers high power LED lighting with the addition of a smaller red LED for safety and to preserve night vision.
The Tikka 2 Plus combines two LED light sources for maximum versatility: one white, high-output LED and one red LED. The white LED delivers 50 lumens in maximum mode and lights up to 35m. In economic mode, it offers a battery life of up to 140 hours. The red LED provides secondary lighting to preserve night vision or, in strobe mode, for increased safety in low light conditions.
The TIKKA PLUS² can be used with lithium batteries to decrease weight or increase performance, particularly in cold weather.
