Like all other NiteRider products we have been selling since 1989, we want to make sure we offer a best-in-class technical lighting system for Off-road. At our Headquarters in Poway, CA, our engineers test our systems in one of the largest Integrating Spheres in the country. Why is this important? There are many smaller Integrating Spheres used by our competitors but by using a larger system, our measurements are more accurate and allow us to make adjustments more quickly here in the U.S.A where we hand assemble our product. We also work with some of the top material innovators in the world. In the landscape of hi-lumen, technical lighting systems, condensation is a challenge, so we partnered up with Gore-Tex to utilize a “breathable” valve in our housing to keep condensation at bay. We use 3M membranes against our heat-sync to make sure heat is pulled through.
