Outbound Lighting releases updated Hangover helmet light

Published October 27, 2022

CHICAGO (BRAIN) — Outbound Lighting has updated the Hangover, its U.S.-made wireless helmet light.

The light is being updated with a thermally conductive polymer shell that the company said offers less weight, better performance, and a sleeker finish.

The shell is molded in Michigan from raw material produced in Kentucky. Outbound's Chicago-based engineers optimized the beam pattern for trail riding to fill the rider's entire field of vision.

Outbound's Evo Downhill Package includes the updated Hangover helmet light paired with the complementary Trail Evo wireless handlebar light. 

"The Evo gives the widest, most even beam on the market, optimized for your handlebars so you never lose the trail, providing a 'wall of light,'" the company said. The lights are designed to work together, so one doesn't overpower the other and the entire trail is illuminated seamlessly.

"The Evo Downhill Package provides the coverage you need to ride the trail as fast as you would during the day. You need to look ahead and see well down trail at speed, but also be able to see around your front wheel and your peripheral without turning your head, so we designed the Hangover and the Trail Evo to work together seamlessly to prevent any 'tunnel vision' or blindspots," said Tom Place, co-founder of Outbound Lighting.

"Evo gives you a wall of light from the handlebars forward, side to side and down behind your front axle, so you can see everything in your peripheral vision with excellent depth even if your bars are turning. Hangover lets you spot your runout at a distance and around tight corners to eliminate blindspots, while blending smoothly with the Evo beam."

The Hangover bike helmet light provides over 90 minutes of strong output, with the ability to USB speed-charge on the go. It weighs 100 grams. The waterproof USB-C quick charge 3.0 is included as standard. Both the Hangover ($125) and the Evo Downhill Package ($365) are available at

Outbound Lighting was named to the 2022 Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Companies in America.
