PIAA Extreme White Bulbs Light the Way for Winners of 12 Hours of ATV America
PIAA Extreme White H6M bulbs were all the lights that Team Hiper Wheel needed to capture the overall and Pro Class crowns in the grueling Maxxis 12 Hours of ATV America endurance race, held last weekend in Ft. Dodge, Iowa.
Team Hiper Wheel drivers Matt Smiley, Chris Borich and Michael Krachun, used PIAA Extreme White H6M halogen replacement bulbs in their race-prepared Yamaha YFZ 450 ATV. The trio covered 64 laps of the varied and challenging 6.5-mile course, with an overall time of 14 hours, 10 minutes and 28 seconds -- the final four run under a cold, pitch-black Iowa sky. Sixty-eight teams started the race.
We didn’t have time to rig up a extra lamps so we just swapped in a set of PIAA Extreme White bulbs, explained Krachun, moments after stepping off the victory podium. It was dark and dusty out there, but the PIAA bulbs did the job. I knew they would perform well because we even use them in our race truck.
The PIAA Xtreme White H6M ATV bulb incorporates PIAA’s patented XTRA halogen technology, which offers greater bulb output without the need to increase amperage draws. The output of a 35-watt PIAA H6M illuminates at the equivalent brightness of a standard 55-watt halogen bulb. PIAA Xtreme White bulbs illuminate at a Kelvin rating of 4150K. For comparison, sunlight is 5250K a standard incandescent bulb is 2600K.
In addition to supplying the Extreme White H6M bulb to the Team Hiper Wheels race-winning Yamaha ATV, PIAA Corporation was also an associate sponsor of the 12 Hours of ATV America, a sponsorship that included cash contingency awards. The 12 Hours of ATV America is the only event of its kind in the U.S.
