kLite Low Drag Road Kit
The ultimate endurance racing electron kit! Just add a dynamo hub, and you're ready for an extended transcontinental adventure. kLite--the leader and primary innovator in self-supported adventure racing--has come up with the ultimate long distance, high speed, self-supported lighting / charging kit.
This kit includes an ultra low drag triple beam light, a dual USB charger, and an “expedition rated” USB always on lighting switched wire loom. The unit was specifically designed for the SON delux dynamo hub, but is effective with other SON dynamo hubs and Shimano / SP hubs as well. This setup allows you to use the light while simultaneously charging your GPS and running a low draw kLite Qube rear flashers, or switch off the light and charge a high draw appliance like a mobile phone or battery.
Included in the kit:
ULTRA LOW DRAG ROAD--Highest Efficiency / Lowest Drag Dynamo Light – 750 Lumen, 3x Spot Optics. Expedition rated like the ULTRA GRAVEL but its long-throw triple light is specifically optimized for higher speeds on blacktop roads. This light setup is perfect for road touring and ultra-endurance road racing, and ideal for transcontinental events like the TCR in Europe and the Trans Am in the United States. When coupled with the SON Delux dynamo hub, this lamp realizes 62% less drag than the ULTRA GRAVEL model—a savings that is uniquely appreciated over the long miles associated with these events. Lower drag is also observed in other dynamo hubs - such as the SON28 and various Shimano / Shutter Precision models. To provide the dramatically lower drag, the unit reduces illumination to 750 lumens and focuses all three beams on the road in front of the rider, providing a uniform lighting field ideal for the faster speeds seen in these specialties. When coupled with the kLite USB charger and kLite wiring loom, this unit provides a turnkey ultra-endurance platform designed to keep you electronics charged and you on the road. Ships with a handlebar mount; designed for use with the kLite dynamo wiring loom.
kLITE DUAL USB CHARGER. This weatherproof dual USB charger accessory converts the varying load of alternating current thrown off by your dynamo hub into two steady streams of 5V USB DC charging. A red LED lamp assures you that magic is happening and electrons are actually making their way from your hub into your USB device. Cleverly designed and small enough to fit wherever you feel the best spot is for your charging excellence, including inside of your bikepacking bags! (Dimensions: 8cm x 3.5cm x 2.5cm, inclusive of ziptie mounting holes). The mounting options are virtually endless - I have mine mounted upside down to the side of the head tube with three zip ties, providing easy access from the handlebars and to charging accessories such as the kLite QUBE rear blinker and GPS / Phone accessories on the handlebar.
kLITE "ALWAYS ON" DYNAMO WIRE LOOM AND SWITCH. The trail lamp and dual USB charger are connected by an "expedition rated" wire loom that provides a positive, waterproof connection to your dynamo hub. Toggle the switch on and you have lights and USB charging, toggle the switch off, and the lights are off and you have USB charging only. This "always on" USB functionality is perfect for endurance riders who need constant GPS charging and for those interested in the kLite QUBE--a flashing rear light accessory available separately.
