Learning a lot from their 3-watt single LED MYO XP, Petzl completely redesigned the Tikka. They call it “a compact, yet powerful headlamp offering both a long-range, focused beam and a diffused wide-angle beam from a single 1-watt LED.”
Like the MYO XP, the boost mode allows long-range lighting up to 164 ft for 20 seconds. A thermal sensor prevents the LED from overheating. Once the unit cools down, the boost mode can once again be activated.
