Foundation Member – Petzl

Petzl’s mission is to create innovative tools and services that allow you to progress, position, and protect yourself in vertical environments, as well as to light your way in the dark…

Over 50 years ago, drawing from experience acquired from caving, Petzl invented the first battery-powered headlamp, giving lighting where it’s needed, when it’s needed with all the benefits of ‘hands free’ functionality and we continue to look for the best solutions in performance, ergonomics, comfort, and reliability.

This search for continual innovation since our first headlamp in 1973 produced the first LED powered TIKKA in 2001, reactive lighting in 2012 and the HYBRID concept allowing you to use our rechargeable CORE battery or AAA’s.

Today there are over a dozen headlamps that make up our range from compact lighting for everyday activities through to performance models for trail running and caving. The demands and the commitment of users are what guide our approach with a focus on new products as well as improvements to existing ones, we look forward to supporting you in your pursuit of the inaccessible.
