The compass comes with the same exclusive Silva Jet 2.0 high performance needle as the Arc Jet S.

The Arc-series is built on the Silva Jet 2.0 needle and a reworked capsule design. The new needle have been designed to provide the perfect balance between speed and stability and it has been tested by elite orienteers throughout the development process. The combination of the new capsule and the needle, give you a compass with world class performance in speed and settling time, transparency and unmatched needle stability.
Spectra speed dial
The Arc Jet C S has an updated, more clean version of the original Silva Spectra System and it is developed to simplify your orienteering. The Spectra speed dial consists of reference markings and numbers on the capsule. You just need to memorize the number that the needle is pointing at after completing step 2 of the Silva 1-2-3 system and the sighting line will guide you in the right direction as long as the needle stays pointing at that number.
Designed like a clock, the speed dial is easy to read and memorize and enables you to move faster and more accurately while orienteering. No matter if you are an elite or leisure orienteer, the Spectra speed dial will help you stay on the right course at high speed while reducing mistakes.
