234Truck-Lite’s new custom LED headlight has been selected as factory standard for forward lighting on International  ProStar on-highway Class 8 trucks.

Truck-Lite and Navistar engineers partnered to develop the highly efficient ProStar custom LED forward lighting assembly, and the strategically designed visibility system is the industry’s first 100 percent LED lighting assembly. An LED headlight, LED turn signal and LED daytime running light will be standard equipment on ProStar Class 8 trucks in North America.

Truck-Lite’s innovative optics are designed to create a smooth beam pattern that meets all regulated safety standards and places the light on the road without glare to oncoming traffic. The new ProStar custom LED forward lighting assembly boasts a long and efficient life cycle that is rated at over 30,000 hours.

“With the new LED forward lighting assembly, Truck-Lite and International are delivering more white light on the road, adding significant peripheral road clarity and increased forward visibility which enhances the drivers feeling of safety,” says Brad Van Riper, Truck-Lite’s Chief Technology Officer.
