Viper is a 240 lumen head torch that's reliable, rainproof, adaptable and compact featuring a reactive lighting mode that adapts to the proximity of your environment and activity.
There are 5 standard lighting modes, from 15 lumen side lights to a 240 lumen high beam. Burn times range from 5 hours at maximum to 115 hours on low with a 115m beam distance.
The light unit can tilt forwards for navigating, with a balanced fit perfect for dynamic activities. At just 95 grams it's light enough that you’ll forget you’re wearing it.
We've made Viper simple to use, even wearing liner gloves, with 1 button to change between standard modes, and another to activate the reactive lighting mode.
Viper has a water resistance rating of IPX6, so it’s rainproof but not submersible. It takes 3 x AAA batteries and is compatible with good quality alkaline, NiMh rechargeable or NiCd rechargeable batteries.

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
