Petzl Tikka XP 2014

Tikka and Tikka XP are ones of the most popular headlamps in the world. Lightweight, reliable, long operation time - these are the characteristic features of the whole family.

And, finally, the long expected regulated power supply…

 

NAO is the latest headlamp from Petzl - which brings together all the technological innovations of the past few years.

Spark seems to meet most of these requirements...

 

At the beginning of the previous year, the first information appeared in the internet: Petzl works on an evolutionary version of Tikki XP Atex. It was to be supplied from 2 AA cells (almost 2x more energy than in 3 AAA cells), regulated, waterproof, a dream of each owner of Tikka XP.
