Introducing the SL-200. See the Difference.

The Best ShredLights Ever Made.



Meet the SL-200, the latest and greatest generation of ShredLights. The SL-200 is a complete upgrade in every facet from the previous model, the High Beams. In this post we will explore all of the new features this ShredLight has to offer, as well as comparisons to the High Beams. Thank you to everyone who has been putting our lights to the test and providing valuable feedback along the way. We are very excited about the future of ShredLights.


50 Grams. 200 Lumens.

The most requested upgrade was brightness, so we started there. We found a plastic and rubber construction to be the best way to absorb shock and keep everything lightweight, but faced challenges with overheating when increasing the brightness. We managed to get 200 lumens of brightness on high power by adding a heat sink that transfers heat away from the PCB. Our goal was to have a minimum of 3 hour battery life on full brightness to provide real world reliability. We then designed a custom lens with Far Focus technology to optimize the full brightness upgrade. This combination means you can see 15-20 feet ahead with the Combo Pack, and 25-30 feet ahead with the Night Ops Pack.


S-LOCK mounting with

We’re excited to introduce S-Lock; our strongest and most reliable attachment mechanism ever. After rigorous testing and rapid prototyping, we have found the most secure way to keep ShredLights on your skateboard. The rubber shell can withstand and disperse heavy vibrations caused from riding. Not only is it a strong hold, installation has never been easier. Simply slide the ShredLight into the desired mount until the plastic clip clicks into place. To remove the ShredLight, push the plastic clip away from the light just enough to slide the ShredLight out of the mount. We will go more in depth on the various mounts we have in future blog posts.

More Control. Less Hassle.

More Control.
Less Hassle.

We added multi-purpose dual side buttons and internal setting memory to make control easier. The dual side buttons enable you to power on and click through modes from either side, as well as dual click to power off from any mode. You can also power off by holding down either side button for 1.5 seconds. Internal setting memory allows you to restore the previous setting from when the light was last turned on. New flash settings provide maximum visibility while conserving battery life for consistant use.

    Hello, I’m interested in maybe buying these light for my evolve board, how much do they cost and do you have a store in the UK

    Cheers

    These look better in every way. It really sounds like your team listened to feedback to deliver an all-around better product.

    I’m most excited for the enhanced battery life and brightness. I often ran the first-gen ShredLights on low-power mode just to stretch the battery life given that they’d lose power and end up even dimmer when set to high-power. Even with four of them, they only really gave enough light to see maybe 6-12 feet, which wasn’t enough when going 15-25 mph. Still, they do help with visibility in traffic even during the day. They’ve definitely saved me a few times.

    Beyond that, I’ve had at least 3 of the first gen lights die on me within six months, which I assume is due to puddles and vibration and had a couple fall off and get lost when riding, so I’m really excited to see the improved IP65 rating and better mounts given that ShredLights aren’t cheap to replace.

    The side buttons and settings memory will make using them much more convenient. With four on the front of my board, two on the rear, and one on my helmet, it takes way to many button presses at weird angles to get them all going. That’s definitely a welcome change.

    I’d still like to see them get smaller given that they’re prone to running the wheels of my board depending on how tight the trucks are and how they’re mounted.

    Also, while far-focus is a great improvement, I think it’d be great if they also focused light at more of a forward/downward angle, a bit like headlights on a car. I care more about putting that light where I need to see, not lighting the trees.

    Also, it’d be cool if there was a way that even just a piece of clear plastic to channel light or secondary low-power LEDs helped put some light on the sides of the ShredLights. It wouldn’t to be more visible from all angles.

    Regardless, the SL-200s look to deliver on nearly everything I’ve wanted to see improved! They look like a fantastic upgrade! Great work!
