Cree LED Running Lights now in stock
« on: September 20, 2010, 12:46:00 PM »
New in store today is the best running lights we have ever seen.

These small lights produce a stunning amount of visible light, in fact, when viewed against a 55 Watt HID Xenon on our test bike, the quantity of visible light is almost identical to oncoming drivers. This crazy bright performance is made possible by the four Cree LED emitters in each pod. This is coupled with a impressive reflector and lens setup that further increases visibility. Current is very low at less than 0.6A per pod thanks to sophisticated current control circuits.

Though these units don't project light like a HID, from a safety aspect they are in our opinion the best running lights on the market today. There is no better way to be seen!

Have been running these lights now in the darker winter evenings, and even with fog as well, for the first time I've felt totally visible to others.

They look good. Could you post a picture showing how they are mounted ? ( without them turned on )

Hi Jeff

They use a small angled bracket with a flat base. (flat base is 65 * 35mm). You can change angle of bracket through 180 degrees. Both the mounting holes and the arms that hold the light are slotted so you can extend the light away from the bracket if needed.

If a different kind of bracket was needed it would be quite easy to fabricate something as they are removable.







In this shot you can clearly see the Cree emitters. The fins on the back provide heatsinking for both the emitters and the constant current circuits. (they barely get warm though to the touch)
