Exposures Volvo Ocean Race heritage continues as they become official light supplier to Dongfeng Race Team.

221 days until the 2017-18 Volvo Ocean Race teams to set sail from Alicante and training is fully underway.

Following our successful relationship with Winners Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing in the past 2 editions of the Volvo Ocean Race we our proud to have been asked by Dongfeng Race Team to be their official light supplier.

The relationships we build with offshore race teams are invaluable for product development, testing and brand awareness. We fine tune our latest innovations to ensure they survive the toughest ocean race in the world. Previous products such as the XS-R and X2 light were developed along side Ian Walker and his crew and have already done 2 circumnavigations of the world.

 

More recently supporting Alex Thomson on Hugo Boss our MOB search light (or “the sun” to quote Alex) and Raw Pro headtorch were put through their paces throughout the non-stop, solo around the world race narrowly missing out on 1st place.  

Pictured are the first batch of lights sent out to the crew at Dongfeng Racing as they prepare to ramp up their offshore training and night passages.
