Show Description

Never outrun your beam again. The Exceed 2XT’s machined aluminum light head houses 3 LEDs mounted in a custom-engineered reflector, lighting obstacles both near and far. Knowing that there isn’t a single best type of lighting for every sport, Silva developed Flow lighting, a mix of flood and spot. Flow lighting lets you see up the trail with the spot, while making sure you see what’s in front of you with the flood light. For those moments you really need to see further, a boost mode throws 2,000 lumens of dark-defying light wherever you need it. Whether you’re in your hiking boots or running shoes, on your bike or on your skis, Silva has included a mount for you. And the easily rechargeable battery pack makes sure you have full batteries any time you want them.

  • Flow lighting provides a mix of a flood and spot beam, specifically engineered to avoid the tunnel vison effect that can come from using a bright spotlight.
  • Boost mode throws a scorching 2,000 lumens for 10 seconds, cutting a path through the darkness.
  • USB-rechargeable battery pack is easy to top up, so you'll never have to make do with "good enough" batteries again.
  • Battery extension cord gives you the option of putting the battery pack in your bag or inside a jacket pocket, which both removes weight from your head and lets you keep the batteries warm for better cold-weather performance.
  • 5-level LED power indicator lets you know when your battery pack needs charging.
  • Power reserve mode gives you 1 hour at low output to get to safety.
  • 3 different mounting options (helmet, handlebar and head) let you use your light for many activities.
  • Anti-slip headband stays in place when you're on the move.
  • Large, 1-button interface is easy to use with or without gloves.
  • Rugged aluminum housing has integrated heat sink fins, making sure your light doesn’t overheat.
  • Lumens and runtimes measured to the ANSI/NEMA FL1 standard.
  • IPX5 waterproofing stands up to any weather you’re willing to go out in.
  • In the box: Exceed 2XT headlamp, rechargeable 9.9Ah battery pack, extension cable, USB charging cable, handlebar bracket, helmet bracket and carrying case.
