Twisted Throttle is proud to present Denali LED Lighting. The compact 2-square lamps house ultra-bright LED's with an incredibly low draw of 0.75 amps each. A two lamp kit provides similar light output as dual 55-watt halogen kits on the market. This single Denali LED Pod has a positive and negative pigtail and comes with a single 'Euro' driving beam lens installed.
The Denali LED's are housed in a rugged die-cast aluminum housing for optimum durability and heat dissipation. The housings are IP68 (ingress protection) rated so that they're impenetrable to dust and submersible under water up to 3 meters. The unbreakable polycarbonate lenses are housed by a 6061 aluminum face plate which doubles as a radiant heat sink to melt away snow and ice in frigid conditions. The Denali LED's have been subjected to a 14Grms vibration test to ensure their performance in high impact conditions.
Each pod housing features a 4-sided channel design that allows you to interlink multiple pods together in a row. This also allows for attachment of the various mounting hardware for flush mounting, bar mounts, and even helmet mounts.
Denali LED lighting uses a very pure, white light which runs at a brightness of about 5,000 Kelvin (K). Factory HID lighting usually runs at 4,200K, and aftermarket HID lighting can be anywhere from 6,000K up to 10,000K. However, at 6,000K and higher, blue light is introduced to the spectrum, and you lose distance, or penetration, that the beam can travel. Since the Denali LED lights keep the color temperature under 6,000K, we maximize brightness without losing distance. This makes them an ideal driving light!
Here's a table comparing some common auxiliary lighting options with the Denali LED kit:
|Denali LED Lighting||HID lights||Halogen bulbs|
|Light Output Per Watt (Lumens)||90||100||15|
|Light Output Per Amp (Lumens)||1200||1200||185|
|Start Up Draw (Amps)||0.75||4.8||4.6|
|Running Draw (Amps)||0.75||2.92||4.6|
|Operating Life Span (Hours)||50,000||2,500||250|
Denali LED lighting carries a 10 year warranty against lamp failure. This does NOT cover crash or user-imposed damage.
Denali LED Lighting vs. Vision-X
Don S. from Ohio liked the Denali lights so much he sent us a video of them mounted on his 2008 Kawasaki KLR650e using the Twisted Throttle fairing mount brackets and said "I just wanted the share this: I made a quick video for a few guys on KLR650.net. It is a simple demonstration of the Denali lights I bought from you. I compared them in a dark garage to the stock low and high beam."
