The new kLite Bikepacker Ultra Road/Gravel and MTB plus the stealthy Bikepacker Pro V2 are all ready to ship.
The pre-ordered Road/Gravel Ultras are all on their way to customers!
A Few Questions I get asked about kLite Products
Whats the Difference between the Bikepacker Ultra Road/Gravel and the MTB version?
There is only one difference:
The Road/Gravel Light has 2 main beams and 1 Spread beam.
The MTB Light has 1 Main beam and 2 Spread beams.
Is the Road/Gravel Light legal on the Roads?
Yes everywhere in the worlds except Germany.
Why buy a Bikepacker Pro V2 now the Ultra is out?
Both the Pro V2 and Ultra produce the same amount of lumens 1300, the main difference is the Pro V2 is much more compact, the standby battery is external of the light meaning you can tuck it under the stem etc when space is tight or you want a more aero cockpit. The Ultra has the standby battery built into the main head unit.
Does the kLite work straight out of the box?
It depends on the setup you already have, you will obviously need a dynamo to power the light, you will also need a way to connect the kLite to the dynamo, you do this via either of the kLite Switches Handlebar or Topcap.
Can I run a kLite upside down?
Yes, no problem, the beam pattern is the same either way up.
Is the kLite really Plug and Play? with other Dynamos I needed to Solder and heat shrink the cables
Yes, Plug the switch directly into the hub, the cable comes pre-fitted with either SON or SP/Shimano connections. Plug the Switch directly into the kLite Ultra or Pro V2. The kLite USB Charger is also the same, the Plug is already fitted, simply plug this straight into the kLite switch.
