Chris Rostron, co-ordinator of the NWNL, reports:
I am very pleased to announce that BrightBikeLights https://www.brightbikelights.com/ will be sponsoring the North West Night League for a Ninth consecutive season.
To remind everyone, last year Tom Felbaum (MDOC) was the men’s winner and Hannah Hateley (DEE) the Ladies' winner (NB. Competitors who have won prizes in the previous 3 years are ineligible to win).
Whilst collecting the prizes for last season I was told that BrightBikeLights are intending to stock Gloworm lights that have been a huge success story in New Zealand.
For Orienteering, BrightBikeLights currently have the
The Orienteering Headlight was updated for 2018 and features TWO LEDS to provide 2200 lumens, a reduced weight for the light unit and a high capacity battery giving over 20hours on the low setting. There are 4 setting giving a range from 300 to 2200 lumens and it comes with all the necessary bike and bike helmet fittings, making it a truly versatile light.
They also have several Ferei products ideal for Night and Night Street League events as run by SROC, MDOC and DEE including
This headlight has an LED Light providing up to 1500 lumens. The battery is contained on the back of the headband and the whole unit is very lightweight. It has 9 light settings and an emergency mode when lower light levels are required, for example for map reading. There is an additional option available for either a 2 or 4 cell battery pack and extension cable to increase the duration on maximum brightness. This means it can also be reliably used on the Traditional Forest/Moorland Orienteering Night events.
Please check the BrightBikeLights website for the full specifications of these two headsets and other models in the Ferei range. Eventually the Gloworm products will feature.
