Utilizing innovative Reactive lighting and equipped with a large, high-output white LED bulb and a smaller red LED bulb, the Petzl Tikka R+ is a compact, multi-dimensional headlamp. By analyzing the available ambient light, the Tikka R+’s intelligent beam adjusts to maximize efficiency.
Petzl’s Reactive Lighting employs an integrated light sensor that measures and analyzes reflected light to instantly and automatically adjust the headlamp’s light output to your needs. Lighting adjusts automatically to the distance of the object in front of you and it adjusts so quickly and indiscernibly that all you’ll notice is that your headlamp gives you the illumination you need in varying conditions. If you’re hiking or running and looking toward the ground in front of you, the beam is wide and at medium strength in order to properly illuminate obstacles in your path. When lifting your head to see further into the distance, the light output increases and becomes more focused.
A user-friendly electronic push-button allows you to choose between the Reactive setting and a Constant lighting mode that provides a stable, unchanging beam. A second button allows you to toggle between Maximum power, Standard (which balances power/battery life) and a Max Autonomy setting that prioritizes battery life over brightness. These three settings are available for both Reactive and Constant modes.
At the Maximum Power setting in Reactive Mode, the Tikka R+ produces up to 170 Lumens of illumination and casts a beam up to 213 feet! The Standard setting increases burn time to 6 hours with a maximum brightness of 130 Lumens and the lowest, most economical setting increases burn time to up to 12 hours at a max of 70 Lumens. In Constant Mode, the three settings vary between 120 max Lumens to an energy-efficient 40 Lumens. There is also an available red LED mode that allows users to maintain night vision for when the light is turned off. An integrated reserve mode ensures that you have 25 Lumens for up to an hour even when the indicator alerts that the battery life is low.
The Tikka R+ is powered by a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery (included) and includes a micro-USB charger. The total weight of the Tikka R+ is 4 ounces.
A hinge on the housing of the lamp enables you to aim the beam where you need it most. A comfortable, adjustable headband with 2-part construction at the back of the head offers maximum support for aerobic activities.
Water-resistant and suitable for all-weather use, the Petzl Tikka R+ is available in your choice of colors.
