Explorer LED 14
The EXPLORER LED 14 combines the ECRIN ROC, a very durable helmet with webbing harness, with a waterproof hybrid light source, the FIXO DUO LED 14, and acetylene lighting. Used with the ARIANE acetylene generator, this combination is sure to satisfy the most demanding caver. The hybrid light source provides a choice of either a focused long-range beam with its halogen bulb, or flood beam for proximity lighting with its 14 LEDs. The latter light source offers three lighting levels and regulated lighting. This system provides a constant light until it switches to reserve power mode when the batteries become almost depleted.
Complete lighting solution:
- durable and ventilated helmet
- electric lighting is waterproof down to -5 meters
Two powerful electric light sources to choose from depending on the activity:
- halogen light for long-range, focused lighting
- 14 LEDs for flood beam proximity lighting, with three lighting levels (maximum, optimum, economic)
Constant level of proximity lighting with a long burn time:
- 14 LED regulated for a constant level of lighting until the batteries are almost discharged
- automatically switches to reserve power mode when batteries are almost discharged
Acetylene lighting is smooth, even and economical:
- multi-directional lighting
- economical fuel source
Comfortable and easy to use:
- on/off switch can be locked to prevent accidental operation
- light body can be tilted
Space for spare halogen bulb in the light body of the headlamp.

Quick Adjust refers to the straps of the helmet. Do you want the ability to ability to "quickly" adjust the fit. This could be a dial, or other plastic pieces.
Really, most climbers don't need to change the fit of the helmet often, unless you're climbing with and without hats, or you have big hair that flattens and then requires tightening after climbing for awhile.
|Face Shield Compatable||No|
The main climbing gear certifications are CE and UIAA--and normally the UIAA creates the rules that the CE body also supports. When possible, we try to list all the certifications the product carries.
To sell a climbing product in Europe, the device must be CE certified. There are no official requirements to sell climbing gear in the US. The UIAA certification is a voluntary process.
