Show Description

Easy to charge, easy to use and easy to bring along, this headlamp is ready to run. With its low-profile housing, custom engineered reflector and stabilizing head strap, the Sprint 225 is a running buddy you can count on. The efficient internal battery charges via USB, making it easy to top-up nearly anywhere. Classic Black Diamond features like PowerTap™ and smooth dimming add to this compact light’s list of accomplishments.

  • Smooth dimming feature lets you dial in the perfect brightness.
  • PowerTap technology goes from any brightness mode to full power with a tap on the light's housing. Tap again to return to the previous output.
  • Mode memory remembers the last setting used and turns the light on in that setting.
  • Multi-faceted lens balances flood and spot lighting.
  • Vari-width elastic headband is wider at the front, offering more stability when on the move.
  • Strobe mode helps keep you seen.
  • Intuitive 1-button controls are easy to navigate with or without gloves.
  • IPX4 waterproofing keeps your light shining in heavy downpours, sleet, snow or pretty much any condition that is less than ideal.
  • USB recharging makes it easy to charge your light, taking 3 hours to fully charge from a computer’s USB port.
  • Multiple setting, 3-level LED power meter lets you know how your batteries are doing both in use and when charging.
  • Lock-out mode prevents accidental activation, so you don’t pull out a dead headlamp just when you need it.
