Silva letting us see the light!

One of the big challenges in Adventure Racing (apart from kayaking, swimming, hiking, mountain biking and generally staying awake for days on end!!) is that you have to deal with Night Navigation and travel.

Unfortunately we are not build with eyes that are capable of night vision so we rely on outside sources of light to see where we are going.

Fortunately Team #TriHarder have a fantastic sponsor by way of Silva Sweden who have just sent us a goodie box packed full of lux of brightness!! 🙂



In here we have a number of the Silva CrossTrail II 250 which is a super-bright multi functional lamp ideal for use on the trail whatever you’re out there doing! It can quickly be switched between the head band to a helmet or handle bar mount making it a great choice and all the attachments are included in the box. Set up the mount on the bike and helmet and easily switch between mounts (though Sean generally sticks with the head strap throughout).

The maximum light produced is an amazing 250 lumens, which gives us an excellent 80 meter beam allowing us (no excuses) travel quickly with confidence. The Cross Trail II has an external belt mounted battery pack allowing it to be carried around the waist ensuring stability.

A thicker elasticated head band holds the lamp securely in place with a rubberised band, ensuring it stays put over the roughest terrain. Intelligent light technology* provides bright light on the track in front of you and also at your feet, enabling you to run or ski with confidence.

*Silva Intelligent Light® is a light distribution technology. It combines a wide angle flood light with a long reach spot light. The unique light image gives the user peripheral and long distance vision at the same time.

The second box of lights is a set of the Simi which are stylish high-output safety lights that are easy to mount on frame or handlebars which we have in white and red light. (Front and back)

The bright LED lights are capable of a fixed or flashing light output which is super bright ensuring that we are seen. Very, very handy when barrelling along country roads at 2 and 3am on mountain bikes!!


As always we are ever grateful for the support of such awesome companies like Silva and really look forward to delivering results with their help through 2015 and beyond.
