Show Description

With its maximum range of 210m, you won’t outrun, outski, or outride the Ultra Vario’s beam. 4 output modes and the ability to flick from spotlight to floodlight let you dial the right brightness for any situation. The lithium-ion battery is unfazed by cold winter nights, and the large control knob is easy to turn on when you’re wearing gloves.

  • 4 output modes: 45, 200, 330, or 520 lumens.
  • Accu 2 Ultra battery, rated for 2600 mAh, is lightweight enough for your head and provides a respectable burn time.
  • Quick charger is included. Charges battery in 3 hours.
  • Lasts for approximately 500 charges.
  • IP 67 watertightness stands up to endless rain and even quick dunks.
  • Regulated, constant lighting level switches to save power when battery is almost drained.
  • Contoured headstrap for comfort over long runs.
