Exceed 4R features Silva Intelligent Light® which is a unique combination of a long reach spotlight and a close flood light. This customization of the light results in less head movement and a clear view of near as well as far obstacles, and you gain the balance and confidence it takes to move fast and perform better.

The ingenious Silva Flow Light feature takes the light optimization even further by providing seamless tuning of the light pattern by simply tilting the headlamp. A tilt downwards makes the beams wider and when tilting the headlamp forward, the light reaches longer.

The super-low mode feature (80 lumen) enables extensive training sessions or races by minimizing the battery consumption when maximum light is not needed. This is perfect for running where you can use the super-low mode when running flat and save battery for the technical trails. The Exceed 4R also features a boost mode of 2300 true lumen which provides a boost of extra powerful light when better vision is required.

Additional batteries and accessories are available for this headlamp model. By adding more battery options to your headlamp set-up, you can find the right balance between burn time and weight for different activities and conditions.

Weight is essential when you want to push your limits to the next level and this headlamp unit including the battery weighs only 258 grams. The ergonomic battery holder is designed to hold the battery steady on the back of your head – but can be detached and replaced by the cable guide on the side of your head and if you want to keep your headlamp clean and simple with an extension kit (sold separately). The wide anti-slip headband and ergonomic battery holder ensure a comfortable fit even during long and rough activities.
