Silva’s Intelligent lighting system provides a wide beam for close proximity lighting and a long narrow beam for long distance seeing. A further addition is the SILVA Flow Light that provides seamless transitions between lighting types by simple head movements; tilting the light downwards makes the beam wider to brighten up slower activities and tilting the headlamp upwards results in a longer lighting beam perfect for fast paced activities. An easy to operate button on the side of the light unit you can flick through the lighting modes with ease even with gloves on.
Battery life is great thanks to the 3.3 Ah battery which is USB rechargeable and comes with multi attachment Velcro for mounting on the headband, belt or bike. The SILVA Connection System allows you to use any SILVA Li-Ion battery from 2008 and onwards. A battery indicator means you can keep track of your charge level before and during your activity and a low battery warning and reserve mode automatically adjusts the light to a setting that ensures that you get back home safely.
