4WD MODIFICATIONS - ELECTRIC & LIGHTS
The LightForce 140W Genesis LED is said to redefine LED performance, with a 1053m range from a pair of lights and 5000-Kelvin colour temperature.
Designed with the look and feel of the original LightForce Genesis, the 140-watt Genesis LED represents an evolution in the Lightforce brand.
Incorporating industry-leading technology to suppress radio frequency interference, the Genesis LED has been independently certified to the internationally recognised standard CISPR25, ensuring it will significantly reduce interference of broadcast radio reception from low-signal-strength locations.
Genesis LED weighs 2.4kg and has small footprint of 73mm.
Genesis LED has a achieved an IP69K rating for moisture and contaminant ingress. It has a pressure die cast aluminium housing and bezel, with a hard-wearing, UV-stable powder coat finish, and is backed by a three-year warranty.
The 140W Genesis LED is completely compatible with the LightForce range of modular filters.
The selection of colours and spreads enables users to customise the light to suit their unique needs. The combo filter increases the beam width to 120 metres of usable light.
We tested a pair of Genesis lights and found them easy to fit and adjust, and they didn’t suffer from shake on our rough road course. They have a day and night positioning function that we didn’t use, because of their mounting position, well inside our vehicle’s overall width.
We found the combination of distance and spread beams quite exceptional for LED lights. The light was even, without dark blotches and a distinct ‘hot spot’ in the centre of the pattern provided illumination at a distance only high-powered halogens and HIDs could achieve previously.
At around $1250 this pair produces sufficient light for most people’s needs.
