Now featuring a 225-lumen beam and a lighter, smaller, tighter waterproof body with an updated user interface, the Cosmo225 can handle everything from your evening bike commute to that weekend backpacking trip.
Black Diamond says:
With 225 lumens of power housed in a super compact, waterproof body, the Cosmo225 is perfect for urban adventures and overnighters in the woods. The Cosmo’s new, compact body, is more ergonomic with a lower profile for improved balance, and the updated user interface includes a second switch for easy lens selection. In addition, the updated optical efficiency not only provides brighter light, but also saves battery life. And thanks to its fully waterproof construction, the Cosmo keeps lighting the way through full-on storms, whether you’re forced to bike home in the rain, or you’re hiking back to camp in an unexpected downpour.
Black Diamond's new Cosmo has slightly more power than its predecessor with 225 lumens compared to 200, where Black Diamond have focussed is on the battery life. This model now lasts over twice as long as the previous model using the same batteries (300 hours on min. setting, 70 hours on max). This is a really impressive step forward for BD headlamps and sets them apart from the competition.
The Cosmo is BD's mid-range head torch, it is still full of useful features. We especially like the red light for around camp on an evening, it keeps your body clock right and helps you get off to sleep easier.
