X2 marine torch
The X2 is a little flashlight that has been developed in conjunction with and used by Azzam the Volvo 70 in the Volvo round the world race. The new Exposure Marine X2 is a compact, lightweight, rechargeable light, which combines an intense, high-power searchlight with white and red beam modes, together with economy and low beam options for working on deck. For sailing at night the red beam options help protect your night vision from glare when on deck and below.
The X2 light is intended also for MOB search situations. With up to 70 hours burn time, the X2 waterproof, aluminium anodized casing, and features a strobe and SOS flash option. If dropped overboard or attached to a MOB the casing floats beam to the surface
The Exposure Marine torches were absolutely brilliant during the Volvo Ocean Race, especially when Azzam lost her rig on Leg 1. Under the red lights, the crew could work fast without having to worry if they shone the torch in someones face, and we were able to retrieve her rig quickly back on board, which saved the boat from further risk of damage.”
