SureFire has introduced a new version of its Aviator light that lets you switch between white light and colored light, depending on the task at hand.
“This SureFire classic—originally developed for pilots—has been reinvented to feature a dual-output white primary LED and secondary colored LED in one sealed head, both focused by a [Total Internal Reflection] lens into a user-friendly beam with ample reach and surround light, according to SureFire officials.
“The rugged, ultra-compact Aviator light is available with secondary LEDs in one of four useful colors that do everything from reduce eye fatigue to cut through fog to help you find blood trails or hydraulic fluid leaks.”
Pull and twist Aviator’s self-locking selector ring to set it to white or colored light, no filter required. It also features a system-disable setting to prevent accidental activation.
The primary LED generates 250 lumens of smooth, intense white light on high and a user-friendly 5 lumens on low. Just press or click the shrouded tailcap switch to activate low output of the selected spectrum at momentary- or constant-on; immediately repeat to activate high output.
There are four separate models to choose from, each sporting a different colored secondary LED.
Amber improves contrast and does not degrade scotopic or night adapted vision.
Blue more clearly defines shapes in the outdoors and helps identify blood and hydraulic fluid.
Red improves contrast and aids in reading red-light-readable topographic maps.
Yellow-Green is complimentary to the color spectrum used in most cockpits.
A lightweight, rugged Mil-Spec hard-anodized aluminum body, gaskets, and O-ring seals protect against the elements, while a sturdy stainless steel clip keeps this light securely stowed in your pocket, pack or flight bag.
SureFire's Aviator light is powered by a single 123A battery and retails for $298.59.
