Extreme Lights has provided the mountain biking lighting gear for Team Merrell Alpha Pack. The Alpha pack is competing at the AR World Series GODZone Adventure Race in the South Island of New Zealand. The Extreme 1400k can produce +1000Lumen for over 10h when powered with our 6 cell Panasonic battery pack. Making them ideal for the GODZone Adventure Race. Orion Health GODZone, presented by 100% PURE Racing, is a multi-day, non-stop, expedition-style adventure race held annually in the South Island of New Zealand. The course remains a secret until the route is revealed just before the event starts.
GODZone always uses the 'journey concept' where teams will be expected to traverse some of New Zealand’s most stunning landscapes with a logical pathway from start to finish. Adventure, excitement, highs, lows and lots of interesting team dynamics as the racers travel across the challenging terrain of the upper South Island. The leading teams will complete the journey in around 4 days with perhaps only 1-2hrs sleep in the entire duration. Teams at the back of the field will have up to 7 days to complete their journey but the accumulated lack of sleep and time in the wild will catch up with them eventually, we're certain of that. We wish the Merrel Alpha pack the best of luck for the rest of the race. They started on Saturday and are making good progress. You can follow the progress on Team Merrel Alpha Pack's Blog
