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.
