SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-end illumination tools and tactical products, announces the release of the Z2-S, the latest addition to their popular line of “CombatLight” flashlights. It’s the first stroblng flashlight from the same company that invented both the tactical flashlight and the CombatLight.
The Z2-S’s ultra-high-output LED generates 160 lumens of light, eight times the light output of a standard two-D-cell flashlight. The Z2-S utilizes a micro-textured reflector to shape and blend the beam so it has plenty of reach for searching ‒ and enough peripheral light to maximize situational awareness ‒ with no rings, spots, or other defects. The Z2-S also features a strobe mode programmed to blink at a specific frequency to effectively disorient an attacker, a feature that has been continuously requested by SureFire customers.
CombatLights feature tactical-level output (enough to overwhelm night-adapted vision), ergonomic tailcap switching, and SureFire’s patented CombatGrip ‒ a stepped-down body and rubber grip ring that makes pairing the light with a firearm easier, as well as providing a secure hold in wet or cold conditions or while wearing gloves.
At five inches long and under five ounces in weight (with batteries), the Z2-S is designed to be portable and powerful. Its sophisticated electronics ‒ an internal microprocessor regulates the LED to maximize output and runtime ‒ are protected by a rugged aerospace aluminum body that’s hard anodized with black Mil-Spec finish. Press the tactical tailcap switch for momentary-on, press three times rapidly to activate the strobe, or twisting it for constant-on in either mode.
The Z2-S has an MSRP of $139.00 and is available for purchase from an authorized SureFire dealer or directly from the company website.
