Mountain Marathons, evening orienteering, slightly misguided 24 climbing challenges… Some adventures don’t end when night falls, in fact it’s at nightfall that they really get going!
Manta has an 11 hour burn time on full power mode (300 lumens), which increases to 90 hours on its lowest setting (30 lumens). This makes it ideal for anything from pushing on into the darkness on a Mountain Marathons, to adventures in remote places where opportunities to charge your light are few and far between. Manta charges with a micro USB, so when it comes to recharging you can simply plug it into your solar panel/car/battery pack/laptop/plug socket.
With a battery pack on the rear and a central overhead strap, you can get a really balanced and comfortable fit with the Manta that makes it excellent for dynamic activities like running. The light itself has a focus adjustor for changing between the spot beam (for trail-finding) and flood beam (for studying your map) and the light unit tilts so you can point it down for reading or set it looking forward at the trail ahead. The rear safety light helps you to stay visible to others on the trail.
Single button operation makes it really easy to change through the Manta’s settings, with high, medium, low and flashing modes on the front main light, and standard and flashing modes on the rear safety light.
Manta has a water resistance rating of IP64, it can sustain showers but not submersion.

Reducing our carbon footprint

Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
