Hella expands Black Magic series with 32 new lightbars

Automotive supplier Hella, operating under the Forvia brand, is expanding its Black Magic product range with a total of 32 new lightbars.

This headlamp series has already been a top seller in the USA for many years, and was launched in Europe for off-road applications in early 2022.

In addition to the first-generation lightbars already available for off-road applications, Hella has now expanded the series with 18 additional lightbars for off-road applications and 14 lightbars with ECE approval R149 for use as auxiliary headlamps in road traffic.

The Black Magic Lightbars are auxiliary headlamps with a very powerful light output. Depending on the version, they offer up to 9,200 (with ECE approval) or 20,000 (for off-road applications) effective maximum lumens.

Both the single-row (Slim) and double-row lightbars (Double Row), with their distinctive look in an all-black design, offer a high recognition effect while being an eye-catcher on any off-road vehicle, SUV or truck.

The new, particularly robust second-generation lightbars are available in the Slim and Double Row designs in both straight and so-called Curved versions.

Curved versions are characterised by a convex curvature and offer a particularly wide light distribution.

With the expansion of the range, Hella now offers a total of 40 lightbars individually or as a set, thus providing the right lightbar for every mounting location on the vehicle: whether roof, roof bar, radiator grille or bumper, the auxiliary headlamps can be mounted either upright or suspended.
