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 and the XL (this unit). 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. This unit is a NavBeam XL with 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 XL 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.
