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.
ULTRA MTB--Wide 1,300 Lumen Triple Beam: 2x Flood Optics, 1x Spot Optic. Intended for MTB singletrack riding, the ULTRA MTB uses diffused lenses on the two outside lamps to provide 180 degrees of lighting, and the center lamp projects out to illuminate the trail ahead of the rider. On twisty singletrack, illuminating your immediate surroundings is critical—and this is where the “down the road” illumination provided by traditional dynamo lamps fall short. Below 13kph / 8mph, the ULTRA V2 boosts the power from the dynamo, providing dramatically more illumination than any other dynamo light at slower speeds. At 13kph / 8mph, the center spot kicks on to provide even more—with a boost of 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, reducing overall weight and complexity. The configuration also helps prevent light flare off near-to-the-trail obstacles--a factor which can lead to eye strain. The unit also has capacitive storage which provides wide flood light in low power mode for ~10 minutes without incoming power – ideal for hike-a-bike, on-the-trail maintenance, and a quick camp setup. When coupled with the kLite USB charger and kLite wiring loom, this unit provides a turnkey ultra-endurance platform designed to keep your electronics charged and you on the trail. Ships with a handlebar mount; designed for use with the kLite dynamo wiring loom and any current dynamo hub.
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.
