Warrior Tech Safe Cycle

Warrior Tech Safe Cycle

Released by Warrior Tech in December 2013

Warrior Tech Safe Cycle

The Safe Cycle was designed for officers to maintain a safe weapon in the cruiser or rack yet have the ability to quickly chamber a round under extreme stress. Operation is simple and the device is reliable. It does not inhibit deployment for the expert, yet it provides a visual indicator that the weapon needs charged for all to see. When the rifle is needed, the Safe Cycle can be ejected using the charging handle or an officer can simply grab the Danger Red or HI Vis Green handle and pull. Either way, the weapon is charged and the officer is ready. In less than one second, the Safe Cycle can be cleared and a round chambered using gross motor skills.

earHero Tactical Earpiece

earHero Tactical Earpiece

Released by earHero in December 2013

earHero Tactical Earpiece

The earHero tactical earpiece is designed specifically to be able to multi-task, with the options of talking on the phone, listening to music, or speaking with someone directly in front of the user, all at the same time—yet they are virtually undetectable, and the design is so comfortable, wearers will barely know the earpiece is there. Designed by an audiologist, earHero’s speakers are so tiny, they will never block a user’s ear canal. Each tactical earpiece simultaneously transfers alternate signals to the brain, giving users the ability to literally talk on a separate phone without removing earHero tactical headsets from either ear and hear whisper level sounds from yards away, while identifying the sounds’ precise location.

SureFire EB2 Backup® Ultra-High Dual-Output Flashlight

SureFire EB2 Backup® Ultra-High Dual-Output Flashlight

Released by SureFire in December 2013

SureFire EB2 Backup® Ultra-High Dual-Output Flashlight

The EB2 Backup—a higher-output, two-battery version of the EB1 Backup—is a compact, dual-output flashlight designed as a backup light for patrol officers or as a primary light for plainclothes officers. It’s also ideal for outdoor, self-defense, and everyday-carry use. The EB2 features a virtually indestructible LED emitter and a precision Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens that create a blinding, far-reaching beam ideal for close- to longer-range applications and for optimizing situational awareness. This useful dual-output light comes in two versions: with a click-type tailcap switch or with a tactical tailcap switch. To activate the EB2 with a click-type switch, just press or click the tailcap pushbutton once for the tactical-level 500-lumen high beam that can reach deep into the night or overwhelm an aggressor’s dark-adapted vision. Return to off and press or click again within two seconds to activate the five-lumen low beam. With the tactical tailcap version of the EB2, press for momentary-on low, press farther for momentary-on high, and twist the tailcap for constant-on activation at either level.
