The world's first modular headlamp: Silva Free

With the Silva Free, the innovators at Silva Sweden have developed a headlamp that can be put together modularly depending on the outdoor activity. So, whether you're climbing, ski touring, trail running or cycling, you always have the right and, above all, bright setup with you.

The majority of outdoor enthusiasts usually practice not just one, but several sports. Climbing, mountaineering, ski touring, mountain biking – you name it. Sooner or later, an external light source will be used in all of these activities. This is where Silva Sweden comes into play: the Swedish outdoor specialists have developed the Silva Free the world's first modular Headlamp developed and thus created the convenient all-in-one solution.

Did the climbing fun last a little longer? No problem. With the Free headlamp you are well equipped.

One headlamp for all your activities

The concept of the Silva Free headlamp series is quickly explained: the starting point is three different lamp units with 1200, 2000 and 3000 lumens, four batteries and three mounting options for helmet, bicycle and GoPro. From this setup you can put together the right headlamp depending on the activity you plan to do.

When putting it together, it's important to find the right balance between lumens (brightness), burn time and weight.

Brightness, burning time & weight: the mix counts

In order to be optimally equipped on the go, it's worth finding the right mix when putting together. The three factors lumen, burning time and weight influence each other.

For example, if you are planning a non-technically demanding endurance run, you will be more likely to optimize the weight and forego some light intensity.

On the other hand, if you are on a long mountain tour with complex route finding, you are more likely to choose a larger safety margin (burning time and lumens) and accept a little more weight in return.

Silva Free application examples

Even if you choose the smallest lamp with “only” 1200 lumens, the Silva Free’s light beam will delight you.

Silva Free: Modular headlamp with lots of technology

With the Silva Free, the power cable is integrated into the headband. This has the great advantage that there are no cables to get in the way and you simply need to plug in the lamp and battery when putting together the desired setup.

Most headlamps feel most comfortable in cool temperatures and light winds, so they are not at risk of overheating. The Silva Free, on the other hand, does not lose any of its performance even in suboptimal external conditions thanks to sophisticated air circulation, the so-called Airflow Technology.

Intelligent Light stands for the automatic adjustment of the light image. In other words: The Silva Free recognizes whether a focused high beam with a long range or a very wide light angle is needed.

Award-winning headlamp

The Free series from Silva is designed for flexible use regardless of the model. For example, you can quickly remove the lamp from your headband and attach it to your helmet or bicycle handlebars instead.

With its modular concept, Silva Sweden has not only created a world first, but also won the Ispo Award in 2023. The jury was impressed by the usefulness of this headlamp for multi-sport athletes with different needs.

The Silva Free series is light in weight, but still offers powerful light intensity and lots of versatile adjustment options.
