NiteFlux Red Zone has a strong polycarbonate body with a single ended opening (for USB recharging) with o-ring seal. The Red Zone series achieve exceptional visibility with up to 1000lm (in red) over 300 degrees viewing angle. That is around 20x what other lights can deliver and is easily seen well past horizontal. These lights allow you to be seen in any conditions, from any position.

The red zone series has been all around the world since 2011 and in 2022 the new rz1000 pushes the envelope of what can be achieved in a rear light, whilst remaining simple and reliable.

We make this series of lights on request in white, and other colours, including red and blue wig-wag style for emergency services.  Please contact us if you want something made and we can usually do it in just a few days.
