Choose TIKKA R+ Headlamp For Reactive Light Technology

See also

It’s not always easy to let the sun dictate your outdoor adventures. Now that the winter solstice has come and gone the days are getting longer, which means more time to take on the outdoors. On a quest to find a reliable, comfortable and compact headlamp I found the TIKKA R+ by PETZL, which uses Reactive Lighting Technology for power and performance. With reactive light, you are guaranteed to be spotlighting the right amount of light at all times.

There are so many activities that make the headlamp a must companion including climbing, trail running, camping and canyoning. Even if you think you won’t be out past sunset, it’s smart to have one on hand.

I like the TIKKA R+ because the light output adapts instantly to whatever environment you find yourself. Output is also optimized to your chosen burn time. These automatic features ensure that you can keep your hands free to hold on, climb, or whatever else you need.

The Lithium-ion battery is rechargeable through USB connection so you won’t find yourself constantly buying batteries. The battery can also be replaced with a standard AAA battery pack, for use in more remote areas where recharging can be a challenge. Another great element, the maximum light output is 170 lumens.

Construction and Specs

The headband adjusts in the back to fit your head perfectly and to stay put during activities. Headlamp weighs in at only 115 grams and is water resistant.

The TIKKA R+ is available in blue, coral, or turquoise.

Active people seek quality, performance, and intelligence. PETZL’s performance series Headlamps bring light to your adventure!
