Petzl MYO® RXP LED Headlamp

CLEARFIELD, Ut. - The MYO RXP is the first Petzl headlamp that is regulated and programmable, allowing the user to choose the order of lighting levels and to precisely adapt light output.

To do this, there are three lighting modes, for each of which the user can select the power from among ten possible levels, from 8 to 140 lumens. This feature allows the lamp to be programmed for the type of activity and the length of use. Maximum power lighting would be suited for a short night run, for example; less powerful lighting would help preserve battery life and would therefore be ideal for a multi-day trek. This headlamp has Boost mode (160 lumens) and a flashing mode that can be programmed. It is compatible with lithium batteries to optimize performance, even at low temperatures. The Wide Angle lens offers the option of switching instantly from a focused beam to a wide beam when necessary.

• Regulated power levels:
- constant lighting power
- automatically switches to reserve power mode when batteries are almost discharged

• Lighting levels can be programmed to favor light intensity or battery life, depending on the activity:
- three lighting levels can be chosen (choose from among ten levels between 8 to 140 lumens)
- choice of the order of activation of the three lighting modes
- flashing mode frequency can be programmed (slow, fast, SOS signal)
- user-friendly programming in three steps, using the two buttons

• High-output lighting:
- 160 lumens (Boost mode)
- 8 to 140 lumens (programmable levels)
- shines up to 97 meters (Boost mode)

• Compatible with lithium batteries:
- lighter than alkaline batteries
- better performance at lower temperatures

• Versatile and adaptable to a variety of situations:
- Wide Angle lens allows to quickly switch from flood beam proximity lighting to focused long-distance lighting in a single movement
- Boost mode increases power if needed, while optimizing energy consumption and weight (175 g including batteries)
- light body is tiltable to direct the light beam where needed

• Perfect for endurance-oriented activities:
- 95 h battery life with program level no.1
- lightweight: 175 g

• Reliable and durable:
- battery charge indicator light: warns when the batteries are 70 % and 90 % discharged
- switches are protected from accidental operation when light body is in upright position
- bulb does not need to be replaced
- water resistant for all-weather use

• Comfortable and stable:
- compact design
- adjustable elastic headband
- top strap included (not attached) for increased stability if needed
