Brigantes Presents – High Angle Solutions – Petzl Tikka XP²

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

Weighing in at just 88g, the Petzl Tikka XP², is lighter than other head torches on the market but still delivers 80 lumens in maximum mode and lights up to 68 meters. In economic mode, it can reach a burn-time of 190 hours, which is ideal for extended exercises in the mountains. It has options of both white light and red light, as well as a Wide Angle lens, with a simple open-close feature, allowing the user to choose between a long distance focused beam and flood beam proximity lighting.

The Petzl Tikka XP² headtorch, in reality, will cover most of your mountain needs, this is a good choice if you want a well priced torch for a ‘bit of everything’, or if you are buying a second torch to back up a more beefy model for extreme use.

The AAA batteries are located in the front of the lamp, in the same unit as the LEDs and the TIKKA XP² can be used with lithium batteries to decrease weight or improve performance in cold weather.

With th TIKKA XP², the button system is simple and can be used with gloves on, a necessity in higher, colder altitudes. The strap itself is well made, easy to adjust and solidly connected to the lamp unit.

The TIKKA XP² is reliable and bright, an excellent all-rounder for a military mountaineer.
