The all new driving lights from Lightforce use high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps that bring light to the darkest of situations.
Lightforce HID Driving Lights

For more than 25 years, Lightforce has been developing professional lighting systems as well as driving lights, rifle-scope optics and lighting accessories.

The Australian-based company recently unveiled five new driving lights for 2015.

The Lightforce HID offerings in the XGT, Genesis, Striker, Venom and Blitz lines are incredible outdoor options. Lightforce has combined some of its most popular driving lamps with the power and intensity of HID to create lights that get attention and pierce even the most murky nights.

240 XTG

Lightforce debuted its first 240 HID back in 2001 with the legendary Rod Hall’s Team Hummer. That victory and those that followed placed Lightforce at the elite edge. That tradition continues with the 240 XGT. Design awards, industry and user accolades continue worldwide, and no other HID offers the tunability to alter the focal length of the bulb and beam angle like the XGT.

The parabolic reflector projects the maximum light available and remains arguably one of the most powerful driving lights in the world. Your Trophy Truck, Class ‘1’ or off-road machine deserves the best. The 240 XGT is the ultimate long range driving light and is ideal for high-speed, off-road motorsports and is available in 35W and 50W at 12V, and 35W and 50W at 24V options.

170 Striker

The mid-size 170 Striker outperforms many larger lights and is one of Lightforce’s most popular models worldwide. Its compact size makes it an easy install on most vehicles.

The 170 Striker already has many fans, but wait until you see it perform in its HID pedigree. Despite its compact size, the combination of parabolic reflector and HID intensity projects a beam that sends many competitors’ larger lights running for cover. Its versatility makes it perhaps the consummate all-a-rounder, equally at home on a touring vehicle or pure-bred race machine. The Striker is available in 35W at 24V or 50W at 12/24V options.

The Venom is an evolution of the most popular-sized Lightforce driving light with additions that have lifted it to the next level. Created specifically to suit small SUVs and 4WDs, the Venom packs a performance punch.

It combines a unique 25mm clearance with four-point mounts for a new level of installation compatibility in a compact mounting envelope. Small LED lights surround the edge of the light to provide added safety and a sleek edge to Venom. The superior Osram bulb delivers a full-spectrum 4200k color temperature with good contrast for long-distance driving. Venom is available in 50W at 12V, 50W at 24V, and 35W at 12V.

240 Blitz

The 240 Blitz was Lightforce’s first true long distance light and began their reputation for high performance and light intensity. It was not long before it became a favorite in the heavy transport industry in Alaska, Australia and Europe.

The 240 Blitz HID offers performance level suited for those who require extreme long distance visibility. When focused to its tightest spot, there are few lights in the world that can compete when distance matter most.

Budget-conscious off-road motorsport enthusiasts who desire maximum lighting horsepower, your search is over. Power options include 100W at 24V, 35W at 12V, 35W at 24V and 50W at 12/24V.
