Why Are High Powered LED Lights Better?
High Powered LED Lights
• Much More Efficient: 4-6 times superior to halogen
• Lifespan: Hundreds of times longer than halogen
• Dimmable: Safely use in varied conditions
• Compact: Low profile, easy to mount
• Inefficient: More than 90% of the energy is wasted in heat
• Short Lifespan: Only 500-2000 hours
• Fragile: Bulb filaments fracture under vibration
• Output Dims Over Time: Halogen starts to lose output from day one
• Fixed Output: Cannot easily control brightness

Additional Safety for Motor Officers
Clearwater Lights are high powered, fully dimmable LED lights that provide longer life and lower power consumption than other light systems.
With the move to provide additional safety for motor officers, Clearwater Lights has developed high power LED lights for Police motorcycles. These high quality lights are designed and manufactured in the USA.
Clearwater has pioneered the use of dimmable LED lighting on motorcycles. Clearwater lights, known for its innovative motorcycle and emergency lighting, introduces a very powerful LED Police motorcycle take down light called “KRISTA PD™”. Intended for use by Police motor officers during traffic stops and for night time patrol use for added protection, each Krista utilizes (3) 12 watt LEDs, an advanced digital PWM power supply and a microprocessor controlled digital dimmer.
How much power is needed?
Motorcycles do not have enough alternator or battery power to support a conventional halogen take down light while stopped – Krista solves this problem. Cruisers, of course, use halogen lights as a tactical safety diversion during traffic stops. One or two Krista lights are sufficient to overwhelmingly illuminate a motorist during a nighttime traffic stop; each light draws only 36 watts of power on full brightness. Either one or two units can also be used on a motorcycle in an “off road” application to provide powerful nightime illumination. Our lights have become popular among the serious minded motorcycle community including police departments across the country. Their comments are a testimony to our build quality and performance.
Two Different Lights Offered
The Glenda LED Light makes the bike more visible to oncoming traffic during the day and at night provides a wide pattern of light which adds to side illumination. Glenda is fully dimmable and can switch from a LOW beam to a HIGH beam with a flick of the factory high beam switch. They are a combination of a fog and visibility light meant to make you more conspicuous. An optional “wig-wag” input can flash our lights from low to high as well. The color bandwidth of these lights really makes a bike stand out in traffic. The addition of a pair of these mounted to the forks on a Police bike will surely make the officer noticeable and safer.Krista
The big sister to Glenda boasts up to 5x more light with a longer reaching pattern. This light is intended to be used as a “take down” light. By using custom and proprietary digital control circuits, these lights can produce up to 180 watts of Halogen light while only using 36 watts each of power. A pair of these lights will fully illuminate the interior of an automobile during a traffic stop.
The intensity of these lights is unmatched by any other light available. You have to see these to believe how really bright they are.
Krista has been tested by some of the toughest riders in the country in all conditions. In addition, "Krista" police lights are currently being used in over 100 agencies across the country.
Applications for the BMW R1200RT, the Kawasaki 1400, the Honda ST1300 and Harley Davidson motorcycles are currently available.
Many law enforcement officers have purchased our lights for personal use affording them a safer ride.
