Show Description

The Trail Runner Free Ultra is a light and streamlined headlamp that exists to illuminate your low-light runs. Two included battery packs give you a USB-powered option and a replaceable battery option. Equipped with Silva’s intelligent lighting optics, it offers a mix of flood and spot lighting, letting you see where you're headed and where you are.

  • Free Technology™ integrates the cord between the battery pack and the light into the headband, so there is nothing to snag or bounce around.
  • 4 modes: high (400 lumens), medium (200 lumens), low (50 lumens) and flash.
  • Intelligent lighting combines flood and spot lighting, covering the near and the far.
  • Dual battery packs give you options: use the large USB-powered pack for long runs from home or anywhere you have easy access to USB, and enjoy the convenience of the AAA battery pack while traveling – the AAA is the world’s second most readily available battery.
  • Included hybrid battery case has a rear facing red light that helps keep you seen.
  • Battery extension cord gives you the option of putting the battery pack in your bag or inside a jacket pocket, which removes weight from your head and lets you keep the batteries warm for better cold-weather performance.
  • 4-level LED power indicator lets you know when your batteries need swapping or charging.
  • Anti-slip headband stays in place when on the move.
  • Large, 1-button interface is easy to use with and without gloves.
  • Lumens and runtimes measured to the ANSI/NEMA FL1 standard.
  • Overall IPX5 waterproofing stands up to any weather you’re willing to go out in.
  • In the box: Trail Runner Free Ultra headlamp, Hybrid 3 x AAA battery case, rechargeable 4Ah battery pack, cloth wrapped extension cable, soft battery case, USB charging cable and manual.
