IP (International Protection) Rating - Clarification
The first digit is the protection rating against solid foreign objects (i.e. dust) and the second digit represents the protection against the ingress of water. The Q3defend's first digit 6, means totally protected against dust. And the second digit 8, explains that the product is protected against complete continuous submersion in water.
Our iconic defend torches are made from High Strength Aluminium, coloured in tactical black and has a soft touch urethane coating surface providing
maximum grip. Using aluminum has many advantages; it gives a sturdy and durable torch, that can withstand being used. Our aluminum body also
works as a big heat-sink, ensuring that the LED is being cooled properly
The High quality of craftsmanship going in to our torches, ensures that our products always perform as they were intended to do. A solid silicone touch switch, highly efficient optics, ripped ergonomic handle ensuring you a firm grip. All of the things combined is what makes a Suprabeam.
The defend series come as a standard with two lenses. One is placed just above the LED to increase the effect of the optics and provide a powerful 5-degree spotlight. The other one is placed between the LED and top cap. This gives the torch an extra layer of protection, and is easy to exchange in case of wear and tear. Especially if used in dessert terrain, with possible occurrences of sandstorms, the lens can get frosted and give blurred beam over time. This way you can quickly replace the outer lens or add a colour filter just by unscrewing the head.
The switch inside a Suprabeam torch is first grade electronics, ensuring a long lifetime and correct functionality every time.
The switch is a metal button with Touch function at rear, allowing you to access great light output with one single touch.
Two-section silicone dust cover
Our premium switch is protected with a two-section durable silicone dust cover, which protects efficiently against dirt, dust and water. Underneath the silicone cover lays the aluminium button switch, tested to run for at least 20.000 operations and waterproof up to 10 meters. This combination gets you a highly durable torch and the most durable solution on the market. Even if you unlikely should encounter problems, it is designed to be easily replaced like any other part of our torch, thanks to our modular built.
