NiteRider Supports Australian CEF RAAM Team

NiteRider, Australian CEF RAAM Team partnership

NiteRider lights are off on a long journey ‘downunder’.  Jason Earick, Customer Service Manager, and Cesar Sanchez, Shipping Manager, are preparing a shipment of NiteRider MiNewt Pro 770‘s, Lumina 750’s and NiteRider Sentinel tail lights to the Australian ‘Crick’ Eastham Foundation RAAM team.

NiteRider are proud to be supporting the only Aussie team participating in this year’s Race Across America.  According to team member, Michael Callow the guys at CEF are well in to their training program, and with the days getting shorter as the Southern hemisphere winter approaches, we thought it best to get the CEF team lights “Downunder” so the team can train safely at all hours!

The Race Across America is a grueling event, and it requires meticulous planning and execution to ensure riders finish the event safely.  As you would expect, teams spend an enormous amount of time and effort planning and preparing for the event.  In the case of CEF we know that nothing is being left to chance, right down to the lights they will use for the race.

We are thrilled that the team reached out to us to supply their lights.

NiteRider MiNewt Pro 770 is the ideal choice for the CEF team

We felt that the NiteRider MiNewt Pro 770 is the ideal choice for the CEF team; it’s a light weight single beam light that offers a run time of 2 hours and 45 minutes which should be perfect for the long nights ahead for the team.

As Michael Callow noted recently, “we’ll go with 770s, both Leon and I are of the view that at night on descents we could outpace the follow vehicle so more light the better!

Having supported teams in previous RAAM races, we understand that riders need the highest quality, most dependable bike lights available.  It is great confirmation to us all here at NiteRider that we continue to be the bike light of choice for RAAM riders.

Please check out the CEF web site c2c4aus.com.au for more information.

100% donation to their charity

The team is raising money for Charity with 100% of the funds raised distributed to the charities, with no funds deducted for any race costs. They are all riding for the Crick Eastham Foundation.

The riders have asked and the foundation has agreed for 100% of these funds to be passed onto 2 Charities. In Queensland that charity is Montrose Access. In New South Wales it is Outrun Cancer.

The Crick Eastham Foundation is committed to raising funds for charities that support either Kids, Cancer or the Community. Through support the team at Crick Auto Group and many others, including RAAM race team “CEF Team Australia” we strive to help those that really need it.

We are proud to be assisting in CEF fund raising efforts.

Stay tuned for me information as the RAAMS start date of June 16th draws closer!

NiteRider Announces Departure of Tommy Bryant

We would like to formally announce that Tommy Bryant, NiteRider’s “Man on the Ground” for the past 8 years has decided to leave life on the road to take up a position with a local bike shop in his home town of Bakersfield, California. We would like to think that Tommy has only semi-retired, but we know better!

Many of you know and respect Tommy not only for his incredible dedication to the NiteRider brand and for the countless hours he worked supporting 12 and 24 hour events NiteRider sponsored, but also for his status as a world class MTB and road rider.

We would like to thank Tommy for the amazing job he has done for the company and we wish him the very best in his new position in Bakersfield.

Our new Athlete Support representative is Kevin Talley.

Kevin is a highly experienced MTB rider, a bike mechanic and has been first aid certified. Kevin has already participated in Old Pueblo and several store rides this year and judging by the feedback we are getting he is well on his way to filling the very big boots Tommy has left behind. We welcome you on board Kevin.

If you are at any of the events we are supporting this season, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Kevin – he has a wealth of information on all manner of light subjects such as how the correctly fit our lights to your bike, the angle the light should be set at, how the light operates, run modes, battery run time, and importantly, safety tips, etc. While the Pros have all this dialed, please do not hesitate to talk to Kevin if you are new to the sport – he is there to help!

NiteRider Pro Athlete Brett Tippie at Vancouver Bike Show

Brett is widely regarded as one of the very best mountain bikers around and we are stoked to announce that Brett has agreed to be a part of the 2015 NiteRider Pro athlete program.

Brett will be out and about at this weekend at the Vancouver Bike Show (www.vancouverbikeshow.com)

Brett will be working the event as a roving reporter greeting the public, signing posters etc.

If you are going to the event head over to the Rocky Mountain Bicycles booth and feel free to ask Brett anything you would like to about NiteRider lights.

Take some time and have a look at Brett’s profile under the NiteRider funstuff page here on the web site – there are a lot of great images and videos to check out.

Photos taken of Brett by Ale De Lullo in Lake Garda in Italy last year were so amazing we decided to use them as lead images for our 2015 advertising campaign.

NiteRider Lumina 750 bike light review on MTBR.com

“This is one of the best selling lights in the US for a good reason” – MTBR.com

At NiteRider we like to think we design and make the best quality bike lights; but hey… don’t take our word for it!

Everyone seems to be talking about NiteRider, especially the NiteRider Lumina 750, which has proved to be one of the most popular bike lights in the US.

We wanted to share a sample of this independent review from the well-respected mountain bike website MTBR.com.

The NiteRider Lumina line is perhaps the #1 selling light in the US. It has been so successful and reliable over the years that it has catapulted NiteRider back into the leadership position in bike lighting.

What makes the light so good? Everything.

Beam pattern, form factor, packaging and quality have been refined over the years from its humble beginnings as a 150 Lumen light to this 750 Lumen device today.

The light is bright and it is stable as it dissipates heat properly to provide a consistent beam throughout its run time. Sealing is excellent, as this will take you through a season of wet weather without any issues.

The heatsink materials are nicely integrated with a shock absorbing rubberized material, so this light can take a few hard knocks.

Head on over to MTBR.com to read the full review of the NiteRider Lumina 750.

Check out the Niterider Lumina 750 in the Niterider store.

NiteRider Pro 1800 Bike Light Winner

NiteRider is happy to announce the winner of the NiteRider Pro 1800 bike light at the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance Winter Stoke Party is Eric Semsak. We welcome Eric on board as a NiteRider!

No doubt Eric’s Niteriding will be vastly improved with the Pro 1800 which is a super light weight, compact, single beam bike light that pumps out a whopping 1800 lumens.

NiteRider would like to congratulate all winners in the Photo and Video contest. The quality of the winners’ work is simply amazing, and we are stoked to see that there is such passion for the sport of mountain bike riding.  (Even if it’s only on one wheel)!

Make sure you take a few minute and check out the photos and videos.

We are proud to be associated with the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance and we look forward to supporting the Winter Stoke Party again next year!

Again, our congratulations to all the winners from this year’s Winter Stoke Party.

NiteRider proud to support USA MTB champion Jari Kirkland

NiteRider is proud to announce that we have secured the ongoing support of one of the USA’s leading female MTB riders, Jari Kirkland.

Jari boasts a number of impressive race results from the past few years including 2 x National 24 hour champion, World record holder for a female total distance ridden in 24 hours set in Moab. Jari has won the 24 Hours of Grand Targhee,  18 hrs of Fruita, Montezuma’s revenge, 24 hrs of Old Pueblo, the Vapor Trail 2X (with the course record), 2nd at the 24 hr Solo World Champs.

Jari holds the  women’s record for the Elk Mountain Grand Traverse (an all night back country ski race from Crested Butte to Aspen) and has won the event several times.  She has been 3rd at the Adventure Racing World Champs twice, and she is the winner of countless adventure races.

Jaris notes that; ” My season is going to start with 6 hrs of Frog Hollow.  Then the 12 hrs of Mesa Verde followed by 24 hrs of Spokane.  Then on to the Coeur d’Alene Ironman.  I have a Xterra race also this summer.  Followed by a few more daylight MTB races.

My goal is to compete in 5 world championships in 2015.  I have already been to Verbier Switzerland for the Ski Mountaineering World Championships (last week), then Ironman, Xterra, 24 mt bike solo, and Adventure Racing.  Could be a sweet year ”
