Tikka

I bought my first headlamp in 1994 for my first trip to Patagonia; it was a heavy/bomb-proof Petzl Zoom. Since those day, I never tried another brand… for my Bikepacking trip through South America I chose Petzl Tikka RXP, a compact, powerful, USB rechargeable, and intelligent multi-beam (reactive lighting) headlamp.

Overview
  • Greater burn time, visual comfort and minimal handling thanks to REACTIVE LIGHTING technology:
    – the light sensor automatically adjusts brightness and optimizes burn time
    – depending on the chosen burn time (3h30, 6 h, 12 h), brightness automatically self-regulates in three modes : MAX POWER, STANDARD, MAX AUTONOMY,
    – Reduced manual operation
  • Two beam patterns (wide and focused) and several lighting modes meet the need for high-performance lighting in dynamic outdoor activities: proximity or distance vision and rapid movement
  • Maximum brightness: 215 lumens
  • Lamp can be used with CONSTANT LIGHTING technology, to ensure constant lighting over time.
  • Lock function to avoid accidentally turning it on during transit or storage
  • Red lighting mode preserves night vision (red LED and strobe mode)
  • Rechargeable 1800 mAh Lithium-Ion battery:
    – universal charging with micro USB port
    – battery charge indicator
    – performs well at low temperatures
    – can be replaced with standard battery pack (not included) for use in remote areas
  • Washable headband, designed for dynamic activities (secure and absorbent)
  • Profiles and customized burn times with OS by Petzl software, free for download at www.petzl.com/OS
