This headlamp is an impressive addition to Petzl's Tikka range. This headtorch casts a wide beam of 450 lumens and makes use of an included CORE rechargeable battery with a power indicator, so you will not get caught out in the dark. To protect the eyes of those around you and to maintain night vision there is an option to shine a continuous red light. For battery preservation there is an ingenious lock setting that you can engage so this torch will never annoyingly turn on accidentally when stored in a pocket or in storage. Extra safety is provided through the reflective headband and the strobe light setting that can be used for emergency signaling.
