Our View - Black Diamond Onsight 375 Lumens:
The Black Diamond Onsight has been developed out of the desire for simplicity and robustness while maintaining a bright light output. The single button is easy and simple to operate and being fully submersible thanks to the IP67 waterproof construction means it can withstand tough conditions.
The Onsight has a dual-beam configuration, which provides the two main lighting modes one (climbing mode) optimized for illuminating the holds or trail directly in front of you with 300 lumens of wide evenly dispersed light that doesn’t glare when you’re looking further afield. The secondary Route-Finder Mode adds a powerful, narrow, long-distance beam and increases the total max output to 375 lumens allowing you to search for trails in the distance.
Dual PowerTap™ technology allows you to easily toggle between Climbing and Route-Finder Modes by touching both the right side and left side of the front housing. Thanks to the Dual-Fuel compatible, the Onsight can be powered with either our rechargeable BD 1800 Li-ion battery or with three standard AAA batteries which are included.
The front housing is ultra-thin and has extra articulation built into it allowing a close fit and still see everything you need to see around you. Finally, at the highest waterproof rating of IP67, this light is fully submersible and dustproof, meaning it’s completely sealed and won’t be phased if you’re caught out in the rain.
