We contacted Expedition Lighting Systems (ELS) in the United States to discuss their vehicle light bars. ELS is a startup company that we feel has the values we are looking for in a sponsor. They are honest, straightforward, professional and caring. They have an obvious passion for lighting systems that was developed through their experience in 4X4ing and time spent in Afghanistan serving our great nation.
After talking with them about our project they have decided to design a custom light system for our vehicle and to deliver it to us in Germany. We thank them for their service in the military, and their support for the charities we are representing on our trip. What a great group of guys. We look forward to abusing their lighting system and reviewing it on the blog as the trip progresses. Let me tell you more about the light bars.
Understanding both recreational and professional lighting needs they have designed a new line of LED light bar systems that are durable and far less expensive than other companies. In this case, inexpensive does not mean lower quality. Rather than using various “cheap” materials and leveraging inexpensive manufacturing techniques to line their own pockets, they decided to create a quality product affordable for everyone. Each light bar utilizes a modified PMMA lens, FF Reflectors, integrated aluminum end caps, and has a powder coated finish. They have 22″, 30″, 40″ and 2X2 light bars that can produce spot and driving beams as well as work and camp lighting. We will update you once we hear more about the design they choose for us and keep you abreast of shipping, installation, and function details as they progress.
