NiteRider was created in California by outdoor enthusiast Tom Carrol who noticed that the surf at night was far superior than during the day. Tom needed to find a way of being able to ride the waves at night, but at the time no lighting options available were up to the job. This situation was the catalyst for the creation of NiteRider lights.
NiteRider lights were the first company to develop high powered lights for use in mountain biking. The company continues to lead the way in light technology with an unparalleled list of industry firsts within the marketplace. The company has recently celebrated its 25 year anniversary and Tom is still at the forefront of the business putting customers requirements into the design process. The business started at the home kitchen table but the same personal care and attention is still present in the way the business operates to this day.
