Petzl integrated an Ultra Vario Headlamp on the Trios Helmet for cavers. With a focused beam to 210 meters, the Ultra Vario shines your way through the abyss. Four lighting modes help you conserve the ACCU 2 Ultra rechargeable battery's life, which is indicated on the energy gauge. The Vario's LED lighting switches to reserve lighting once the battery is near its end. Petzl made the Trios helmet's shell and the Vario's casing out of impact-resistant ABS that's waterproof to one meter for thirty minutes, and the polystyrene liner offers some cushion without adding much weight. Sliding ventilation slots ensure proper airflow, and the adjustable headband ensures a secure fit.
Take one caving helmet and add to it an ultra-powerful light with 4 lighting modes and an ACCU2 Ultra remote rechargeable battery and you have Petzl's Trios helmet. Light up the darkest caves with 300 lumens cast by new generation LEDs, they last for an hour and 30 minutes plus 30 more when you hit reserve power mode so that you're never left in the dark when you're batteries are running low.
