Light maker predicts faster 24-hour races with 12-hour battery

The new Moab Lighting System is named after the battery pack that gives it power "beyond anything ever seen in the marketplace," said NiteRider.

The system is built around the Mother Of All Batteries (Moab, geddit?), a new 18-ounce, 7.2Ah Lithium-Ion pack.

"24 Hour endurance racers can now ride solo from dusk until dawn on one battery," said NiteRider. T

"This kind of technology could be seen as an unfair advantage for those smart enough to purchase a Moab light system. It is not an exaggeration to state that the technology will likely lead to faster race times as transitions and lap times will certainly get faster and faster without the need to change or charge batteries constantly.

"Even with a slightly greater total system cost, riders will be able to save money by not needing to invest in multiple batteries and charging systems.

The Moab system has a charge time of 4.5 hours, gold-plated connectors and both a helmet and handlebar mount are included.
