Behind the scenes of the Extreme Lights shoot and a few of the pictures shot at Helderberg Farm in the Western Cape.
‘Extreme Lights’ … the name says it all. My shoot last week with Charl, Hannes and their crew made me realise rather suddenly how pathetic my current MTB lights are, and that LED technology has advanced with leaps and bounds in the three years since I purchased my kit.
The good news is that this Stellenbosch-based company also supplies trail runners, 4×4 enthusiasts and a whole range of other outdoor, high-performance lighting needs as well. For more information, visit them at www.extremelights.co.za or check out their Facebook Page /extremelights
The 4×4 routes and new mountain biking single-track on Helderberg Farm (www.helderbergfarm.co.za) – courtesy of master trail builder Jan Van Schalkwyk - proved a dramatic backdrop for the shoot. If you’ve not ridden your bike here lately, go check it out and – if you’re brave enough – let gravity go wild along the latest WP Provincial DH Track.
Just like the lights, this is pretty ‘extreme’! Jacques Marais
