Some are so ridiculous in practical reality it would be comical IF IT WERE NOT FOR THE FACT they are misleading. YOU ARE NOT GETTING WHAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR in good faith.
The American Medical Association and others in regulatory bodies began reporting concerns on blue biased light sources for health and safety reasons. See the AMA report, "CONCERNS RE LED LIGHTING" including FYRLYT's video response on WHY IT IS RELEVANT to driving lights.
LUXSIS 5000 - Performance & Lifetime Value!
The LUXSIS 5000 whilst the most affordable in the FYRLYT range is in no way a 'second choice'. Construction is identical to the NEMESIS 9000 with the only major difference being the bulb and step up convertors. The lens is crystal clear tempered borosilicate glass (PYREX) that thanks to its unique design is easily replaced in seconds. Others use plastic as its cheap. Consider as plastic inevitably deteriorates it reduces your light output. FYRLYT's lens is superior in every aspect.
The true 5000 lumen 3300K output (per light) with 100 CRI (42% more than most LED or HID) still outperforms many lights costing twice as much and when you factor in their lifetime rebuildability it is good reason the LUXSIS has been so successful. No discernible delayed HID type startup to full power or excessive glare or light back scattering (TYNDALL EFFECT) common with 5000K or greater LEDs & HIDs. LUXSIS is a winner.
FYRLYT driving lights are unique.
Since FYRLYT's beginning in 2011, we have remained adamant as to the importance of light quality specifically for the purpose driving regardless of trend. First and foremost the measure of CRI (colour rendering index). No LED or HID currently meets the benchmark FYRLYT demands. 100 CRI. (more below) Expanded detail can be read here "3 REASONS WHY".
FYRLYT stands alone.
You maybe perplexed as to FYRLYT's position when other brands, 99.9% of media and salespeople will insist the LED or HIDs they sell or benefit from advertising revenue are best and anything HALOGEN is old fashioned and no longer relevant. Consider the actual evidence we share you can independently verify. Don't let others ignorance or finacially driven agendas compromise your safety.
The litmus test of FYRLYT's claims.
Consider this proposition. FYRLYT has been designing and manufacturing in Australia since 2011 and the vast majority of our customers have previously owned LEDs or HIDs. If what we sell was not delivering what we claim it would defy logic that we would still be in business but also continuing to grow market share in 2020.
Why FYRLYT instead of LED or HID?
Analyse the engineering and verifiable science to evaluate the light under consideration. Many lights perform similarly and the marketing often becomes inflated snake oil with catch phrases and ludicrous claims. FYRLYT is different in that what we say can be OBJECTIVELY VERIFIED and confirmed by customer feedback.
If the light source does not project the colour you WILL NOT SEE IT! FYRLYT delivers 42% more CRI than typical LEDs or HIDs.
Driving at night is a very specific task with many challenges for the human eye and brain re driver input reflexes and adaptive night vision, especially as we age. Ask a qualified doctor or relevant academic rather than believing everything the media tells you as 'expert' opinion whilst taking money from their advertisers.
Look at the CRI HALOGEN overlay re *LEDs, WARM and the most typical driving light version, COLD. All that spectral colour data is missing so you will not be able to see it.
Some expensive LED & HID lights ($1000+) on the market ONLY DELIVER 70 CRI and yet, FYRLYT DELIVERS the full 100 CRI. That is 42% MORE!
Worse still is those missing colours are in the region you need to see typical animals or other environmental hazards! Patently absurd.
The fact is blinding white lights that may impress 'some' are a very poor choice, especially in extended use. Professional drivers and their employers should consider this! Eye and therefore driver fatigue can be reduced with sensible light choice. The increased collision rate due to animal strike "because they were not seen until to late" is well documented despite being well within the distance of the beam pattern.
Evidence. FYRLYT is superior to LED or HID.
The following information is made in context in the field of driving lights with all light sources being equivalent volume and brightness. These diagrams will inform you beyond the average salesperson, media off road guru, influencer and big brands. This is basic science and is FYRLYT's design ethos. Remember, the latest trend is NOT ALWAYS best.
DO NOT USE A STANDARD 100W type loom!

NEMESIS 9000 - For the informed...
A driving light delivering performance like no other on the planet. A voluminous WALL of quality light, no gimmicks and no compromise. Like LUXSIS, NEMESIS features the same crystal clear tempered borosilicate glass lens for ease of cleaning without scratching and is easily replaceable. Others use plastic which will always degrade in time, is difficult to clean without scratching and in many cases cannot even be replaced FORCING you to buy another light. How convenient for the brand or reseller! Not so much for you.
The 250W 9000 lumen 3300K bulb (42% more than most LED or HID), unique reflector and optics delivers a superior relevant volume and distance combination exceeding LED or 70/90/100W HID. Nemesis blows these away with NO delayed start up times (HID) or excessive glare or light back scattering (TYNDALL EFFECT) common with 5000K or greater LEDs & HIDs.
Make no mistake TYNDALL EFFECT is a big issue and is the overwhelming feedback we get from customers who have used LEDs, HIDs sold to them on the premise of BLINDING WHITE LIGHT. Consider their negative experience a warning before purchasing any light.

FYRLYT NEMESIS 9000 driving light customer feedback
14 July at 18:33
Well I finally got a set of my own (9000 NEMESIS) fitted up yesterday after finally deciding to bite the bullet and all I can say is WOW these lights are beyond insane.
My 50 inch light bar is now redundant, I drove 600 kays last night on the way home with the lights on 90% of the trip and it was like driving at daytime. The amount and colour of the light is perfect for long distance driving.
I've owned Lightforce, IPF, Hella, Narva and a few LEDs and there is no doubt in my mind the competition cant even be called that as they aren't even close to being in the same league.
I was a fan just looking at them in the shop now I'm a 100% certified fanboy.
Great work guys.

Finally got to give my Nemesis 9000's a good run on Friday night up into the Vic high country. So - are they worth it??
To start off with I will make it clear that I had them professionally installed exactly as instructed. Also I have no barrow to push with FYRLYT, I don't know anyone that works there etc etc. this is my informed, honest opinion.
My previous setup was a huge led lightbar, and I loved it - great spread of white light with no dull spots, but reach wasn't great...
After short drives in industrial areas to get the alignment right I was itching to get them out and really use them.
When I first switched them one I noticed they were not as white as the led lightbar - but white is not always bright and vice versa (see 4x4 Australia January article for more detail on this). But that said there were no dull spots of light and reach was awesome - and I had both lights on spread beam.
After a few ks I realised I had forgotten to think about what the driving vision was like - I could see so effortlessly I instead could concentrate on the task at hand - towing my van safely. Everything just looked natural.
I spotted a couple of roos, a wombat and a deer - and each time I spotted movement well of and had already reacted before I actually realised what it was - each time I just had the feeling I had spotted the wildlife really early. That made me very very happy.
Now I am no expert on the following bit, but I am willing to take a stab. One of the worst things for me about night trips is getting blinded by light from big roadside signs, but I noticed that the glare from signs was nowhere close to what I got from led lights, so my tip is the blinding was from the whiteness rather than brightness of the lights...
So I absolutely loved the lights, they are way way better than anything I have ever seen before and for me are worth every cent.
I know a lot of people will bag them, but now I have one simple question for naysayers. "Have YOU actually used them?"
Ok make that two questions. If they have and didn't like them I will ask how the install was done.
They are a bloody top bit of gear.
