kLite ULTRA Gravel / Road Kit: Long Throw Beam / Handlebar Bracket / Dual USB Charger / Pro-Race "USB Always On" Wiring Loom
The ultimate endurance racing / touring electron kit! Just add a dynamo hub, and you're ready for an extended off-the-grid adventure. kLite--the leader and primary innovator in self-supported adventure racing--has outdone itself with this latest product setup. 1,300 lumens, waterproof, and vibration proof.
Just choose the type of dynamo hub connection on your adventure rig and this kit has everything you need to get off the grid, light up the trail ahead, and simultaneously charge two of your critical devices.
Choose between two lamp configurations--Wide Beam (intended for MTB and singletrack riding) and Long Beam (intended for the faster speeds of gravel and road riding). An easy way to think about the differences in these is that the Wide Beam projects light twice as wide as the Long Beam, and the Long Beam illuminates the distance twice as much as the Wide Beam. It's about your average speed and riding preferences. Or better yet, don't compromise - buy the kit and the other lamp separately and have it all.
The Wide Beam lamp uses diffused lenses on the outside lamps to provide 180 degrees of lighting, which is really useful for trail riding. At 13kph / 8mph, the center spot kicks on to provide down the trail illumination. Many say that the combination of the wide and spot beams on this lamp allow them to leave their helmet mounted lights at home. The configuration also helps prevent light flares off near-to-the-trail trees and other obstacles--a factor which can lead to eye strain.
The Long Beam lamp uses projector beams on the outside lamps and a diffused lamp in the middle. This configuration is ideal for the faster speeds seen in gravel and road riding, and where you're more worried about illuminating that dark road ahead than avoiding that tree in your immediate field of view. For road and gravel riding, there is no better dynamo lamp, the ULTRA v2 illuminates the road in an impressive fashion and does so without the unusual beam patterns exhibited by other lamps.
Both Wide and Long Beam versions include a capacitive stand light that comes on when stopped or moving slowly--helping to illuminate your immediate surroundings while you push over an obstacle or check over your rig.
This listing is for the "LONG BEAM" kit - Ideal for Gravel / Road Riding.
The "always on" weatherproof dual USB charger accessory converts the varying load of alternating current thrown off by your dynamo hub into two steady streams of 3V 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 trail lamp and dual USB charger are connected by a professional 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 later this year.
