As serious innovators in the LED lighting market, Rigid Industries has constantly pushed the boundaries of LED technology and even producing products we didn’t even know we that needed. Launching this month, Rigid industries is revolutionising the light pod market with the new D -SS LED light.
The D-SS, or Dually Side Shooter, features an up to 120˚ horizontal beam meaning that more of the side of the road will be lit up without having to turn the light sideways. The increased width of the beam allows for better visibility at the side of the road or trail without sacrificing straight ahead illumination. “The D-SS pod incorporates the same powerful optics and legendary LED technology as RIGID’s popular D-Series lights,” explains Mitch Kistner, a member of the Rigid Industries team,” but with the added benefit of additional LEDs aimed to the side for a much broader beam.”
The new light is built with the same great construction and durability of the legacy D-Series while only being 0.8 inches wider. The D-SS comes in a few different advanced optics options, Spot, Flood and Driving and can produce up to 3,096 raw lumens. Single light applications utilise two side shooting LEDs on both sides of each unit and pairs feature three on each side of the units. These lights are perfect for any application that requires a wide spread beam, including A-Pillars, for lights, motorcycle auxiliary lighting and more.
Rigid’s new light features a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours, built with an impact resistant lens and uses the GORE Pressure Equalizing Vent to keep the electronics inside from getting too hot. Additionally, the D-SS light is IP68 compliant, meaning it is globally recognized to be waterproof down to one meter of submersion. Each light kit comes with a wiring harness and switch for easy installation to your truck.
Expect the new D-SS to be available in September.
