The Trail Runner Free is a light and streamlined headlamp that exists to illuminate your low-light runs. 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.
