When you’re packing for your next bikepacking trip, the bulk of an item can be just as important as the weight. That’s why Knog is trying to streamline your gear with their PWR line. We’ve already had the chance to check out the lights themselves, but now Knog is expanding the PWR ecosystem.
The idea is that with a single battery, you can power multiple devices which cuts down on the weight and clutter. Products like the new Power Sound and PWR Lantern let you take the PWR Bank from your bike light and use it for tunes or 300 lumens of camp lighting.
You also can use the same PWR bank as a Headtorch, though it works best with the S & M battery packs.
When you’re not using them as a speaker or lantern, you can use the PWR banks as a stand alone light with or without the extension cable.
That cable is particularly useful if you’re using the new PWR Mountain with 1800 lumens – though it is a fairly large battery pack. There’s so much going on with the PWR line that it’s probably best just to check out the interactive site that Knog set up here.
Outside of the PWR range, Knog has the new + Light series which can be mounted to just about anything. In addition to a magnetic clip, the light includes rubber straps to put it on your bike, bag, helmet, etc. Available in a 40 lumen front or 20 lumen rear, the lights are USB rechargeable, waterproof, and are super light.
The next evolution of their Oi bell, the new Oi Luxe subs plastic for high end materials for a clean, classy look.
Finally, we have the Fang multi tool which is a TSA compliant device that packs 18 tools into one. The composite body includes two tire levers, a bit driver, box end wrenches, and more. Available in September, the tool will sell for $39.
