The Kayalu NavBeam is a ruggedized bright-white LED headlight for a kayak, canoe, inflatable or other small watercraft. 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. 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.

Marine Grade Construction

The NavBeam LE uses a Tektite Mark III light featuring a bright white LED, 100 hours of service on a single set of batteries, and an LED life rated to 10,000 hours of service. The Tektite Mark III's batteries (included) are easily replaced without having to remove the light from the NavBeam mount.

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.

About the RAM Power-Locking Suction Mount and Toughbar Arm

The NavBeam KLR-5050-T, with components manufactured by RAM Mounting Systems and further enhanced by the addition of our Kayalu Toughbar™ , uses a locking vacuum cup design similar to the mechanical suction cups used by professional glass installers.

The mount and our added accessories are constructed of premium-grade materials, all suitable for use in freshwater and saltwater environments.

At the base of the KLR-5050-T is one of two RAM Mounts coupler arms — this lower arm is spring loaded for convenient adjustment. At the upper end of the Toughbar™ extension rod is a second RAM Mounts coupler. Both of these couplers have large handles which can be loosened for positioning the NavBeam headlight, locking itinto position with a single hand. These couplers are manufactured of high-strength composite and are tough as nails.

Because the Toughbar™ extension increases leverage at the base of this mount, the KLR-5050-T includes an anodized aluminum RAM diamond ball above the suction unit (as shown in image with specifications, below) — not a high strength composite ball suitable for shorter mounts as we ordinarily include in our Locking Suction mounts.

The locking suction cup at the base of this NavBeam model provides an exceptionally strong grip. The suction-cup can be cleanly affixed to any non-porous surface (glass, steel, fiberglass, enamel, plastic, etc.) through the action of a mechanical lever arm. And when you want to remove the mount, you simply twist the lock counter-clockwise and pull up a small rubber tab.

To enhance the functionality of this industrial quality product, we include a marine-grade, nylon-coated bungee tether and a plated steel breech clip, which allow you to secure the mount in the event that the mount is bumped or the suction becomes disengaged.
