There's nothing like the thrill of an offshore kayak adventure after dark, and finally there's a rugged and reliable product to tackle the night. The Kayalite is a high-visibility LED light like none other you've seen before.
Unlike any other portable navigation light available, the Kayalite is virtually loss-proof and indestructible. It can take a blow if you happen to catch a branch or roll your kayak or SUP through a bed of reeds. It's waterproof to a deep water rating of IPX8, fully submersible to 1,000 feet (300m) below sea level. And it floats if accidentally dropped overboard.
The Kayalite can be fastened quickly and easily onto any existing eyelet, deck loop or pad eye. In a pinch, the Kayalite can be clipped to your kayak's deck rigging, carry handle, a free cleat or bungee — even hoisted up a mast.
The advantage of a Kayalite, whether on a sit-in kayak, sit-on-top, stand-up paddle board, scull, inflatable or canoe, is immediately self-evident when you clip its mast to your deck.
The secret of the Kayalite is our patented mast technology that overcomes the limitations of rigid pole and suction-cup based lighting solutions. A tension cable holds the mast upright while preventing it from snapping or accidentally detaching. It's built to work, and to last a lifetime.
The Kayalite includes a 2-LED module rated for 100 hours of service on three (3) AA alkaline batteries (included). LED life is rated at 10,000 hours.
