Trail Tech Equinox Driving Lights
Being seen is good, but if seeing what’s in front is on your agenda then some auxiliary headlights could be the ticket. Trail Tech is mainly an off-road company, but is branching into street products with the Equinox, which Trail Tech claims has reinvented what’s possible with an LED light. The Equinox is said to have a smaller and more efficient diode array than other LED spotlights and draws just 14 watts per pod. Black anodized billet-aluminum housings and hardened glass lenses protect the LED array and secure to a 3⁄8-inch stainless steel post, which connects to a variety of frame clamps depending on the bike. $439.95 gets you one kit that includes two Equinox 75mm lights, a wiring harness, and your choice of frame mounts.

LED Light Bars
Ever slow down when a traffic light turns yellow and wonder if the person in the car behind you knows you’re stopping? Custom Dynamics offers a way to combat that possibility with a line of LED Light Bars to bolster your stock taillight and/or blinkers. The bars shown here are tubes of LEDs called TrueFlex. A two-wire, single-intensity system is standard, and an extra $4.95 gets you a converter for combining running lights with blinkers and taillights. Prices range from $10.95 to $89.95 depending on the size of the light, or you can explore other LED auxiliary lighting options at www.customdynamics.com.
Occasionally it’s nice to have a light that’s not attached to the bike. Princeton Tec has an extensive line of such devices, from handheld to head-held and from “family” to military spec. Running on three AAA batteries, the Remix has a 100-lumen spot beam that can be turned down to a lower “flood” setting, while the cluster of three, 5mm LEDs are available in red, green, or white light. The Remix is made on site at Princeton Tec HQ in New Jersey and comes with a 5-year warranty. Get one for $39.99 at www.princetontec.com.
