Petzl E99 PG Tikka XP 2 Headlamp, Graphite
The Petzl Tikka XP2 Headlamp integrates two light sources, as well as a wide angle lens with simple open-close feature, so it’s easy to choose between a long-distance focused beam and a proximity flood-beam. Compact, lightweight, and powerful, this headlamp can be used with lithium batteries to decrease overall weight and improve cold-weather performance.
Power and Versatility
With three different brightness settings, two flashing modes, a wide-angle lens, and a red light for tactical missions, the Tikka XP2 handles any dark backcountry situation with ease. It’s ideal for backpacking, hiking, camping, travel, working under a vehicle hood, and more. And thanks to its compact, 3-ounce design, you won’t even notice it’s there until it’s lighting your way back to the car.
Light Choices and Signalization
For power and versatility, this headlamp is equipped with a white high-output LED and a red LED. The white LED delivers 60 lumens in maximum mode and lights up to 60 meters. In economic mode, it can reach a burn-time of 160 hours. The red LED provides lighting to preserve night vision or to become a flashing light for safety.
In addition to the flashing mode, the Tikka XP2 provides an integrated whistle that allows you to call for help.
The Tikka XP2 features an electronic push-button switch that lets you choose between three white lighting modes (maximum, economic, and flashing) and two red lighting modes (continuous and flashing). Also, this switch is designed to lessen the likelihood of the lamp turning on during storage. And to ensure that the Tikka XP2 is ready when you are, it offers a battery charge indicator light that will come on when the headlamp illuminates for less than five meters and there is only 50% burn-time remaining for proximity lighting. When it’s time to change the batteries, you’ll find that the battery compartment is quick and easy to access.
Finally, the adjustable headband provides a custom fit for comfortable wear, while water-resistant construction helps guard against the elements.
