Seymour, IL (July 16, 2014) – First-Light USA, the leading manufacturer of hands-enabling lighting tools, has launched TORQ™, a new product family of high-performance, general-purpose tactical lights. The TORQ™ platform has three models, TORQ™, TORQ™ LE and TORQ™ NV, which cater to a wide range of tactical operators.
“TORQ is designed for a broad set of customers and exhibits what our products have always been known for: enhanced ergonomics, functionality, and versatility,” noted Jeremy Ross, founder and CEO of First-Light USA. “We’re committed to providing lighting tools that enhance performance in low light and TORQ delivers on this to a much wider audience than anything we’ve ever done before.”
TORQ™ offers 155 lumens of white light with three secondary output colors (red, blue, green) and a safety beacon. TORQ™ LE is designed for law enforcement professionals with a gray housing, red, white and blue safety beacon, and ready strobe function. Representing First-Light USA’s ongoing military focus, TORQ™ NV features infrared (IR) output, red, blue and green secondary colors, and both visible and infrared beacons. All TORQ™ models operate on two AA batteries.
Interchangeable side panels, a unique feature to the TORQ™ platform, provide users with options to switch the included steel belt clip to either side of the light or to install a dovetail connection which is compatible with First-Light USA’s Tactical Retention System (TRS™) accessories. These TRS™ accessories include a belt mount, MOLLE mount, and magnet mount. Additional side panels are planned for early 2015 and will include a strap cutter/rescue tool, bottle opener and magnet.
TORQ lights will begin shipping in August 2014.
