Philips X-tremeVision moto for maximum safety

Headlights are one of the most important safety features on a motorcycle. As well as illuminating the road ahead, the rider is making themselves visible to other drivers on the road, especially at night. Drivers often don’t see bikes until it’s too late.

The best way to ensure visibility on the road is to choose the best performing headlight bulb available.

For maximum safety and performance, Philips X-tremeVision moto bulbs are engineered with state-of-the-art technology to offer up to 130 per cent more brightness, compared to the minimum legal standard for riders- thanks to improved filament geometry and the use of a unique gas composition.

The bulbs are filled with a unique gas composition that reduces the deterioration of the lamp’s filament, which improves its durability and therefore optimises the lamp’s lifetime.

Philips halogen bulbs are made of quartz-glass. UV-quartz glass is stronger than hard glass and highly resistant to temperature extremes and vibrations, which eliminates the risk of explosion. So Philips quartz-glass lamps (filament 2 650ºC and glass 800ºC) are able to withstand severe thermal shock.

With the capability of increased pressure inside a UV-quartz glass lamp, it produces a more powerful light. And more powerful light means an enhanced driving experience, however dark the road.

Lumileds’ UK Business Development Manager, Richard Armstrong commented: “For maximum safety, the Philips X-tremeVision motor headlighting range is engineered with state-of-the-art technology, offering maximum performance and a high level of safety on the road. Upgrading your motorbike’s headlamp is a good idea especially at this time of the year in order to improve the brightness of the headlamps – be seen and be safe.”
