Simply put, the Bilby is the world’s most powerful silicone headlamp.

The Bilby produces a serious output of 400-lumens and offers an impressive 5-hour runtime on full power, and over 105-hours on the lowest setting.

It’s lightweight, dust proof and waterproof to 1m (IP67 rating) and intuitively designed from medical-grade silicone to ensure durability while providing form-fitting comfort.

The Bilby will suit the most serious outdoor enthusiast in the most demanding of situations.


Multiple Light Options

Multiple Light Options Knog Knog

The 5 LEDs on the Bilby are optimally placed for their individual purposes – a high beam to see by, 2 elliptical beams for mid and wide beam angles, a red light for night light purposes and downlights for reading. Within each mode there are four brightness settings. On the brightest setting, the Bilby has a range of up to 100 meters.

Another outstanding feature of the Bilby is its ability to be customised via Knog’s own Modemaker app. This app allows users to increase Bilby’s modes from 6 up to 8, and choose which order they are operated, allowing users to create a headlamp that is customised to their specific own needs.

A final unique feature of the Bilby is its special ‘boost mode’ that allows a user to extract full power from 2 LEDs simultaneously. This really lights things up for a period of up to 10 mins.

Rechargeable With Integrated USB

Rechargeable With Integrated USB Knog Knog

Say goodbye to single use batteries.

The outstanding feature of this design is the fact that the USB is integrated into the lighting pod – which means no cables to lose or break.

To recharge the headlamp, simply plug the pod into a USB-A port, and you’ll have a full charge in just 4 hours from flat.

Matte Silicone Finish

Matte Silicone Finish Knog Knog

The Bilby’s body and strap are moulded in matte finish medical grade silicone that won’t tangle your hair. It’s easy to clean and is adjustable to fit head circumferences from 300-660mm.

The extremely comfortable silicone strap adjusts with a toggle. Once you’ve found your size you can set and forget or adjust on the fly.

Unique Pod Chassis Design

Unique Pod Chassis Design Knog Knog

Our new removable pod chassis design is packed with advanced optics allowing for various beam widths and elevations. Through the use of the 2-intuitive buttons, users can electronically raise and lower the light beam over a 20-degree arc which overcomes the need for the traditional mechanical adjustment ensuring the light points right where you need it when you need it.

The same removable pod is fitted with an innovative heat sink design, which helps prevents the headlamp overheating even when on full power over long periods of use.

And remember, the Bilby is IP67 rated, meaning it’s waterproof to 1m as well as dust-proof. This headlamp is made tough.

    I’m really happy with it, a lot of different light modes. You can choose what modes are best for you. Recommend for all.

    The Bilby has been the perfect head torch for my camping and kayaking adventures. I love that it’s waterproof and USB rechargeable. I’m also loving the multiple settings, and the boost mode is super bright. The adjustable strap fits firmly and securely and it looks great – not heavy and clunky like the head torches I’m used to. Highly recommended!!!

    Got one of these for my trip around Australia – camping, kayaking & fishing. Waterproof, durable and with an awesome battery run time, it’s perfect for my needs. The Bilby is far superior to any other headlamp I have owned!

    We’ve backed Knog’s Bandicoot and Bilby head torches and we love them both. Last month though while we were camping at Kakadu the Bilby became everybody’s favourite head torch. All those extra lumens and the easy to adjust head strap made it the go to torch. The bandicoots were there for the slow coaches and also did the job, just not as brightly. We liked using the red lights on the torches for evening board games by the fire and the brightness of the Bilby for cooking. We also use our Bilby and Bandicoots for walking, cycling and for the odd Darwin blackout. Defintely the best head torches we’ve ever had. Would be great to be able to buy a spare battery for the Bilby. Is that possible Knog? For those times recharging is tricky.

    KNOG – In my opinion the Bilby is the Superman version of the Bandicoot! I was a Backer on the Bandicoot and loved it! Now that I’m a Bilby owner, my Bandicoot sits lonely in the drawer. I love that the unit comes out from the headband to charge via USB! I love the size adjuster (just set it & it stays!) I live in a rural area (no light pollution) so when I take the dog out at night, Bilby makes it seem like daylight! And BOOST Mode makes my light go BAM!!! SUPER BRIGHT! Pushing two buttons to power Off is different than my Bandicoot, but no big deal. I’m quite happy with the battery life of Bilby! I’m completely bald, yet the head band (with cushion) is very comfy & not too heavy. The Modes are easy to cycle through. When you download the Modemaker App, you can add some interesting light modes. It works for adding Modes to Bandicoot as well. I am very very pleased with the Bilby. When I see bulky, clunky, ugly, crazy looking, battery powered headlamps in local stores, I just kinda laugh. They can not even begin to compare to ALL THAT BILBY CAN DO ( in a neat, slim, stylish, sleek, function filled Headlamp! The one thing I did notice is Red Mode is not as bright as with my Bandicoot. I do prefer a brighter Red light because I can see without attracting all the insects to my face (when I take me dog out each night). I found that using Bilby on the dimmest setting does not attract the insects either, for the most part. I’m sure that also extends my battery life too.
    KNOG! You all make EXCELLENT QUALITY PRODUCTS! I can’t wait to see what you design next!

    Excellent design, powerful lights, great for running. This is definitely an improvement on the very good Bandicoot model. The headlamp is sleek, easy to use and wear, and has a lot of flexibility in terms of programmable light options. Highly recommended.

    This is the simplest and most intuitive little BIG light ever. Multi-purpose for home and bike and even bush or caving. But the BEST thing I like about the Bilby and in fact, all the Knog products is that it charges by slotting into a USB. Materials high quality. Brill!

  8. 5 of 5


    I haven’t had much time to play with this yet but I love the five light types (long beam, mid beam, down beam, reading light, and night vision saving red light), comfort of the silicone band, and it’s not too heavy to boot. Really nice design and highly functional. No regrets with backing your kickstarter, great product.

    Great flashlight! The best I’ve ever had. Knog, you are an incredible team that makes the world a better place!!!!
