It's all about stealth with RIGID's new Midnight Optics. Utilizing our exclusive Spot Optic with a translucent black enamel coating, our Midnight Optics take the subtle "blacked out" look seriously; featuring black oxide hardware, to dark grey screen-printed and black embossed logos on the bezel.
Midnight Optics enable RIGID to "disappear" during the day while still providing powerful LED technology to light up the night. Thanks to improved LED technology, the Midnight Edition PRO now offers more light output than ever before. Midnight Optics are available in E-Series, RDS-Series, SR-Series, and D-Series product lines.
The next comparison is between amber LED vs. amber lens. Using the RIGID D-series as an example, the D-Series with amber LEDs has approximately half of the peak intensity that the D-series with the amber lens has: LEDs Lenses 16,218cd vs. 34,340cd We went with the change in lens color over LED because of the significant difference in peak intensity between LEDs and the lens. The drop in light output from the clear lens to the colored lens occurs when that white light is converted from blue to another color. There is a loss of energy that happens in that process. Even with that loss of energy, we end up with a higher output than what is possible with an amber LED. The Amber PRO Edition also provides a more cohesive aesthetic among the OEM light colors.
