Show Description

Shovelling aside the darkness with a powerful beam, the Icon can lead you out of dark caverns, or illuminate obstacles as you fly along a trail. Independent red, blue, and green LEDs let you switch lighting to read charts or maps without impeding your night vision.

  • PowerTap goes from any brightness mode to full power with a simple tap on the housing.
  • Programmable brightness memory lets you set the brightness level when first turned on.
  • Regulated output keeps lighting levels consistent when batteries are new (once batteries reach about 80% capacity the light progressively dims for the remaining burn time).
  • Removable battery pack (longer cable included) gives the option of putting the battery pack in your pocket, keeping the batteries warm for better cold weather performance.
  • Red, Green and Blue night vision modes cover the spectrum of night vision needs.
  • Dimmable mode tunes brightness levels.
  • Lock-out feature prevents it from switching on when in your pack.
  • Power meter shows how much juice is left
  • Settings include: Full strength – in both proximity and distance modes, dimming, strobe, red/green/blue proximity, and lockout.
