A new motorbike light coming soon!
Over the past couple of years, we’ve had a number of different motorbike lights. The motorbike lights ranged between 10W & 30W, roughly 1000 to 3000 lumen. The high-performance lights, combined with exposure to the harsh South African elements, including the corrugated dirt road surfaces that our adventurers like so much, have had their durability challenges.
Taking the past four years’ experiences into account, we decided to invest in the development of an entirely new range of motorbike lights, from the ground up!
We’ve recently received our first sets of PCBs, with the required functionality built in. They’re currently undergoing testing with our partner CANBUS specialists, based in Somerset West. These tests include CANBUS compatibility, the ability to dim, thermal regulation, to mention but a few. Aesthetics and mounting options will come later. We’ll probably pair it with a complete relay wiring harness, which should make mounting and connecting the wiring super easy.
Once completed, these motorbike lights will be 100% built for South African road conditions. Rated at 30W each, with a combination SPOT and FLOOD beam pattern, these lights will have you see far down the road for those ‘lekker’ dirt road adventures, you’ll also have enough light to see next to the road.
We hope to launch these lights December 2017, right in time for the holidays.
Have your say in the development of these lights.

If you are an enthusiastic rider or have experience in designing/mounting lights and brackets, we’d love to hear from you!
