I've been using SL200 for the longest time and it was my very first ShredLights products that I ever purchased (time flies) and at that time, it was the brightest skateboard lights I ever had. I took them out to daily riding session up until 2022 when my friend on Boosted Stealth that I met at the local park recommended me SL-1000 which was their top of the line lights for ESK8 and many others delivering wopping 1000 lumens at max (so bright that it could blind drivers.. pedestrians… just be careful with this!). I was looking into it and after seeing them action in person, I decided to contact ShredLights directly to order two of the single packs. Shipping was extremely quick and I received it around a week-ish or so considering that I live in Canada. Upon unboxing it which was professionally well packaged, everything felt super high quality. It had weight to it and body was made of aluminum which could handle anything. I just wish it didn't have sticker around it as mine left small adhesive but thankfully, they were easy to get rid of.
The diffuser that came with this light is another bonus because it let's you see everything! I believe this is the ideal for group rides at night to help the riders to see their surroundings! Another bonus is the feature that this lights has unlike the previous generation lights. It has 5 brightness settings along with 5 modes along with the lockout mode so I don't accidentally turn it on right into my eyes.
Just be careful using this lights as it could blind anybody because they are super epic and op. Important thing to know as for current SL-1000 model: I would highly recommend anyone to use Loctite on the lens caps so they don't come loose but other than having that small issue and diffuser leaving gaps between the light and the lens cap, this is 100% worth it!
If you are investing in ESK8 lights, get this right now!!
