The Kayalu NavBeam is a ruggedized bright-white LED headlight for a kayak, canoe, inflatable or other small watercraft, integrated with a standard RAM Mounts ball for attachment to any RAM-compatible mount. The NavBeam is no ordinary LED flashlight, it's actually a submersible light capable of operating in fog, rain, ice and sleet — even at 1000 feet (300 m) below sea level.
The NavBeam is available in two models, the LE (this unit) and the XL. The NavBeam LE is a dual-purpose light having a narrow beam and also serving as a 360° light when aimed skyward. The NavBeam XL is a brighter headlight, having a reflector that directs all light forward. The NavBeam LE has a single LED and the NavBeam XL is available with either 2 or 4 LEDs.
The NavBeam is invaluable for navigating extremely dark areas while avoiding rocks, tree branches and other obstructions. The NavBeam can be directed to find a lost lure in a tree branch, or to illuminate equipment on deck. The NavBeam is easily capable of being trained on incoming watercraft as a signal to avoid collision long before an incident.
This NavBeam LE model is bolted to a RAM Mounts ball mount, providing compatibility with any standard RAM Mounts assembly including any Kayalu ParkerMount™, nClamp™ clamping mount, Kayalu locking suction mount, or any other base or coupler that can accept a RAM Mounts 1" ball.
Marine Grade Construction
The NavBeam LE uses a Tektite Mark III light featuring a bright white LED, 200 hours of service on a single set of batteries, and an LED life rated to 10,000 hours of service.
The NavBeam's Tektite Mark III is secured to its RAM Mounts ball using our custom, black oxide steel hardware. We also add a removable rubber baffle which protects your night vision by blocking unnecessary rays of light directed toward the rear of the unit.
REGARDING THE NavBeam™ LE AND NIGHT NAVIGATION
The NavBeam LE may be held or directed skyward for use as a 360° light.
For outfitting a kayak or canoe for night navigation, consider mounting a Navbeam LE atop a Radpole multipurpose gear mount, a ParkerMount fixed mount, a YakBastard clamp, or secure a Kayalite to your deck. Although a suction mount is suitable for use as a headlight beam, we do not sell or recommend suction mounts, magnets or other unreliable adhesion-based systems to secure navigation lights intended to provide a primary source of visibility.
