HELLA Value Fit Design Series Light Bar 11-inch and 31-inch

 

 

If you’re keen on nocturnal adventures, you’re going to need a decent off-road light. HELLA offers a powerful LED light strip which is designated strictly for off-road use only. The LEDs are arranged behind two different types of lens, creating a light bar that has both reach and spread. The light strip comes in an 11-inch 289mm (L) x 90mm (W) x 65mm (H) 60W option, with a combo beam that produces 5400 RAW Lumens and 3077 effective Lumens. It also comes in a 31-inch 797mm (L) x 90mm (W) x 65mm (H) 180W option with a combo beam that produces 16200 RAW Lumens and 8500 effective Lumens. Mounted behind your bull bar or on the roof of your vehicle, these powerful bar lights are set in a die-cast aluminium housing and supplied with an alloy mounting-bracket.

The grate includes grilling and frying sections and also folds into thirds for compact transport.
