Beam Pattern

Beam pattern is a key factor in lamp selection. Be sure to select a beam pattern that works well for your chosen application.The TIKKA XP offers wide, mixed and focused beam options.

Wide Beam

A uniform, close-range light for stationary activities or those requiring slower movement.

Activities: travel, family, children, camping, DIY, home use, repair work, reading...

Wide Beam

Mixed Beam

Combines a wide beam for good ground lighting with a focused beam for added depth. This beam is adapted to close-range vision and to moving around.

Activities: hiking, trekking, mountaineering, caving...

Mixed Beam

Focused Beam

Concentrates the light to shine long distances and therefore allows long-range, precise vision.

Activities: trail running, expeditions, technical mountaineering, back-country skiing, multi-activity races, biking, orienteering...

Constant Lighting

Constant Lighting  © Petzl
Comfortable lighting that does not decrease over time.

The TIKKA XP’s CONSTANT LIGHTING technology features electronic regulation that maintains constant brightness over a predetermined time with a BOOST mode giving temporary access to maximum brightness. When the constant lighting phase ends, reserve lighting offers a weaker light output for many hours, allowing the activity to be completed.
