49.5g, 500 Lumens

The headlamp industry has always lacked high lumen lights with metal constructions in a compact form factor. High lumen headlamps have always been bulky and cumbersome until today. We are here to offer the best of both worlds.
The H1 Nova is a headlamp and pocket light all in one. With its removable headband and attachable pocket clip, this light can be used every day of the week regardless of your needs.

The H1 Nova has a monumental 500 lumens in a unibody aluminum enclosure that is smaller than the average pinky finger. With the detachable headband and included pocket clip, this is the most versatile flashlight on the market allowing it to attach to a pocket or backpack strap for hands free operation. We have also included our signature magnetic tailcap to make the light even more useful in a work environment.

The flashlight markets need for a product like this drove us to innovate and produce the best headlamp out there. If you could have one light to take with you, this is the one.
