USA Assembly
Assembled in the USA

Built to last

We at MonkeyLectric run our own factory in California.  We waterproof and perform final assembly on the NLX1 (and our other lights!) in the USA of imported parts and test them to make sure they're super durable for your riding adventures.

Your NLX1 is covered by our 2-year limited warranty.  If anything happens, let us know and our friendly staff will help you get rolling again.

And if you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, we can give you a factory tour!

Waterproof, durable and rugged

Made for any adventure

The battery capsule is fully sealed with a high-quality cap and o-ring to keep water out.  The LED strand is a covered with a waterproof coating, and the controller is encased in our clear, waterproof, and durable urethane. It's the same battery and waterproofing technology that has made our other Monkey Lights ultra-durable.

The NLX1 isn't just splashproof: It qualifies for an IP67 rating.  It can be submerged in water for a very long time and still work just fine.

The light is also durable so it can handle bumps, potholes, curbs, and jumps.
