Lighting technology

Constant LED lighting: lighting performance does not decrease as batteries lose charge.The battery life is calculated according to the FL1 standard.
For each mode, it corresponds to the maximum duration during which the lamp is capable of providing at least 10% of the maximum power of the mode concerned. This maximum power is measured between 30 seconds and 1 minute after it is switched on, with a full battery charge.

Optimal torchlight range

Maximum range of 25m in power mode.
The range is measured according to the FL1 standard: It corresponds to the maximum distance at which the torch provides a brightness of 0.25 lux (local measurement).
This brightness is equivalent to that provided by the moon in the best possible conditions.


Monobloc design for optimal compactness. Easily accessible switch on the top of the torch
The BIVOUAC 500 USB head torch can be locked (by holding it in the off position for a few seconds) to prevent accidental lighting in your bag.


15 mm wide removable and washable headband. Composition: 70% polyester and 30% natural rubber for maximum comfort.
The two symmetrical buckles facilitate tightening.
The BIVOUAC 500 USB head torch can be adjusted to fit all head sizes, from children to adults, as well as mountain helmets.


The FORCLAZ BIVOUAC 500 USB head torch is delivered in a fabric pouch with its USB cable to protect and store it. The absence of any disposable packaging reduces its impact on the environment
