Orem, Utah - November 2015 — On November 10, 2015 Atlas Flashlights launched their flagship product the Atlas C57, a beautifully designed aluminum, titanium and carbon fiber, everyday carry flashlight. Four light settings cater to every occasion — from moonlight to high burst. The C57 meets IPX-8 standards (3 meter submersible for 30 minutes) and comes with a scratch resistant sapphire lens. Chromium tungsten and hard anodized coatings produce a rugged, durable finish. The Atlas C57 has two mounting options — 30 millimeter and one inch (carbon shell removed) and comes in a wide variety of color options to match your personal style.
“This light is unlike any light in the market,” said Eric Peery, CEO, Mechanical Engineer, Atlas Flashlights. “We used the strongest materials to produce a customizable, versatile tool for outdoors, gun, and flashlight enthusiasts.”
Performance Enhancements: The Atlas C57 uses the efficient Cree XP-L LED to produce more than seven days of constant running time. Four lumen settings (1, 50, 300, and 1000), two mounting sizes (30 mm and one inch without the carbon shell), and two power source options (one 18650 or two CR123 batteries) allow for great flexibility.
“No expense was spared in material and component selection. From the Sapphire lens and titanium end caps to the CREE LED and copper heat sink, the C57 is quality through and through.” Said Eric Peery, CEO, Mechanical Engineer, Atlas Flashlights.
Durability Advancements: The Atlas C57’s durability is evident in the materials used. Aluminum, titanium, and carbon fiber produce strength as well as dissipate the heat produced by higher lumen output settings. The signature titanium heat shield was patterned after high-performance vehicle exhaust heat shields and controls the external heat along with protecting internal components. The LED heat sink is made of copper, a superior heat sink material. Potted electronics provide thermal and shock protection. The sapphire lens was chosen because it is stronger than tempered glass and scratch resistant. Finally the Atlas C57 meets IPX-8 standards, which means it is suitable for continuous immersion in 3 meters of water for 30 minutes.
Design Innovations: Form follows function with the Atlas C57. The aesthetics were inspired by high-performance vehicles with function and personal expression in mind.
“We wanted to create something that looked and felt different than other flashlights. We wanted it to look and function like a high-performance light.” Explained Dan Peery, Industrial Engineer, Atlas Flashlights.
Titanium and carbon fiber are materials more commonly found on sport cars, motorcycles, and racing bikes because of their strength to weight ratio. The Atlas C57 uses these same materials for similar reasons. The signature Atlas Ring keeps the light from rolling away and provides a connection point for a wrist strap or carabiner. The Atlas C57 differentiates itself from the competition by providing multiple combinations of finishes. The carbon fiber can either be raw or coated, the titanium has a natural or black chromium tungsten coating, and the aluminum comes in a black hard anodized finish. Replacing the tactical raw carbon fiber shell with a Kryptek shell for hunting, a Multicam shell for outdoor adventures, or a white shell for urban exploration gives the Atlas C57 an entirely custom look.
“The C57 breaks new ground in flashlight color customization. Being able to swap out carbon fiber tubes and end caps provides a wide range of appeal.” Said Eric Peery, CEO, Mechanical Engineer, Atlas Flashlights.
