Introducing the Next Generation of Wearable Adventure Lighting 

cyrad headlamp, leglight, and flashlight system at night in Fall
CYRAD is Full-Visible-Color System-Based lighting consisting of the Owlsight Headlamp & new LEGLIGHTS, with an optional focusable CRI ~95 flashlight
Take all your night adventures to the next level with true-colors & wide peripheral views 


CYRAD is unlike any personal lighting you have ever used


Each rugged illuminator is based in vision science and research studies of the reflectivity of surfaces you need to see

If you hike, backpack, run, climb, ride, spelunk, track, fish, photo or video nature - or do most anything outdoors in the dark


CYRAD Precision Illuminator Systems will enable:

  • Extreme Vision: True Colors (CRI~95), textures, contours, holes/bumps, roots, blood, scat, wet/icy/oily surfaces, & other details

  • Illuminate your foot-forward zone to be more footsure

  • See more of your surroundings & reveal what's in shadows

  • Enhance your night-vision with customizable spectra including true-color, fluorescence, daylight simulation, & enhanced night vision red

Not just another headlamp or flashlight

When we hike, we often start out early or stay up late for sunrises/sunsets, and wildlife. We wanted more colors and details at night, especially on tough terrain.


We studied today's "brightest" headlamps & flashlights and found that they were deficient in HALF of the visible light spectrum. 


We did the research, taking spectral reflectivity data of more than 15,000 outdoor surfaces to learn what characteristics of lighting were needed to reflect the most detail. We related this to how our eyes function in different stages of darkness.


Then, we created special Cyradiance LEDs, active photonic filters, and special optics, and integrated them into CYRAD Headlamps, LEGLIGHTS, & Flashlights, ruggedized for use in almost any weather.

Get back the colors & details of daytime, at night.

 Learn how headlamps and flashlights that output mostly yellow-green light degrades your detail perception of most natural objects, compared to vision-optimized broad-spectrum light power.  Learn what really matters for better vision at night and how to better use light outdoors, caving, and anywhere dark.  

Half the color spectra you have in daylight are weak or missing in current headlamps & flashlights. New Cyradiance LEDs & technology bring you True-Color and 1st-ever full visible spectrum LED wearable light. A ~95 CRI (Color Rendering Index) rating means that the CYRAD system is capable of producing light to reveal colors of surfaces very similar to how they would appear in natural sunlight.

Customize your lamp's color spectra to meet your changing needs.
You can easily switch between OWLSIGHT Headlamp's 12 Selectable-Color Spectra Modes to enhance your vision for the kind of terrain you're hiking, what you are looking for (to see or avoid), & how dark-adapted your eyes are.

Different levels of darkness, environments, & activities can benefit from boosting different color wavelengths. The best lighting for trail running, climbing, sitting in a blind, fishing lakeside, or snowshoeing may not be the same. Plus, LEGLIGHTS provide 4 selectable-spectra for illuminating ground & periphery.

Your perception of color hues, tints, tones, textures, angles, depth, translucence, wetness, iciness, waxy or oily surfaces, patterns, and other visual effects are determined both by many parts of the light's color spectrum and the light angles you unconsciously use during daylight.

Better illuminate details & reveal what's in the shadows 
Wide-angle "skylight" and light reflected from other surfaces at many angles play a big role in why visual details appear better in the daytime. 
OWLSIGHT and LEGLIGHTS were designed to work together because multiple light angles using illumination on the head with wide-angle floodlights on both legs more closely simulate morning sunlight at your back than any single light source, similar to the light angles used in photography studios.

CYRAD TRIAD or QUAD Systems provide ultimate vision enhancement and versatility, but each systme elements are also great to use on their own, or mixed and matched to suit your needs, whether on urband or wilderness adventures, or even doing tasks around the house.

Be more footsure on all terrain

LEGLIGHTS add 2 full-color spectra floodlights to illuminate your "foot-forward" zone up to 30 feet. This extended peripheral view improves your footing on difficult terrain and permits better heads-up attention to your surroundings.



DID YOU KNOW that your eyes' pupils often and unconsciously glance toward our feet when we walk or run? LEGLIGHTS provide 2 wide-angle, wearable floodlights to illuminate your “Foot-forward” zone with 4 selectable spectra including a full-visible color sunlight spectra simulation, UV, & Night-Vision modes. This extended peripheral view greatly improves your footing on difficult terrain and permits better heads-up attention to your surroundings.
