Drive in snow & ice?

FYRLYT is superior to LED or HID for driving in snow and ice. Note we are referring to light sources predominantly used in driving lights. Less glare. More detail. Less icing up.

Alaska to Nordic regions.

In 2012 the first FYRLYT's went to Alaska with the most famous trucking company in the Arctic Circle. Subsequently we established a warehouse distribution in Sweden to service the Nordic regions. We delivered a product that works day in day out in any climate and environmental condition. You want a driving light to be at full power without delay and one that is rock solid from the billet cnc alloy mount up. No die cast, sheet metal or plastic mounts that may let you down.


LED? Read on...

You could be forgiven for assuming all LEDs are the same and being "new" must be best. Yes, there are some very high quality LEDs used in architectural, medical and broadcast lighting but that is not what is being used in typical driving lights regardless of brand or price. If you want the facts you must look at the engineering data sheets re spectral power distribution. Even in a specific LED chip this varies re 'bin' models. There is a lot more to consider than just "brightness". You can have have an intensely bright light that actually reduces your driving safety thus being a poor design for purpose. 


TYNDALL. The big issue.

The TYNDALL effect, a principle of physics, makes mid to high kelvin rated LED & HID lights problematic in the glaring white of snow. rain or fog. Any brand that promotes 5000K as ideal because it is "like daylight" is misleading you.


Trust the media & marketing?

Brands, including FYRLYT, exist to sell their products. When HID was introduced, there was a race to market the brightest and most powerful lights. However, many of these claims were often dubious and lacked any scientific merit. The arrival of LED has only made matters worse. If you want to know the truth about driving light performance, go back to the basics: the light source. What is the real data? If a light source is fundamentally flawed, it is not ideal for its purpose. You can dress it up with marketing hype, but that doesn't change the facts.

Dark Adaptation.

Short wavelength HEV LED lights are substantially inferior as they compromise your reaction time re dark adaptation and compromise safety. Ask your ophthalmologist. FYRLYT's light quality maximises your driving safety.

This is FYRLYT NEMESIS 9000. Note the lack of glare and at distance no blue haze or back scatter. More detail due to the 100 CRI of the light source. That is 42% more than typical LED or HID regardless of price. 



Plastic filters? Poor design.

A 1990's marketing 'fad' and compromise light output. It is two more surfaces to get dirty and therefore diffract the light. Some brands use them because their lenses are not hard coated and damage easily. FYRLYT's lens is superior borosilicate crystaline clear tempered glass (more on that below). 

FYRLYT's 'Pyrex' glass lens. 

Our new 2019 design tempered glass lens is not only optically superior but can withstand cleaning that would damage any plastic type lens even hard coated types.

LED? 5000K? Poor choice. Read the AMA report. HERE

LEDs have received a lot of media attention lately, leading many to believe they are the only viable lighting option available. However, FYRLYT disagrees and urges people to consider the facts. FYRLYT's scientifically-proven superior CRI resolves more detail than the average LED or HID (by 42% at 70 CRI). It is widely known that LEDs can freeze over in extreme conditions, making them useless, but FYRLYTs minimise these occurrences, providing greater safety and reliability. HIDs suffer from delayed start-up and typically have poor CRI, and their actual outputs are often overrated and unreliable. In contrast, FYRLYT's base model LUXSIS outperforms a 240mm, 70W HID while also offering a 100 CRI and lifetime serviceability.
