KC HiLiTES has been the leader in performance automotive lighting for almost 45 years and has always supported the biggest names in the sport. Legends such as Rob MacCachren, Larry Roeseler, Walker Evans, Rod Hall, Larry Ragland and Ivan Stewart have all used KC HiLiTES to give them a competitive advantage in the darkest of deserts. Now, KC HiLiTES opens a new chapter and is proud to announce a partnership with 6-time Lucas Oil Off Road Championship winner and 16-time X-Games medalist Brian Deegan. Deegan joins an already stacked team of elite KC drivers and teams. Brian brings a host of talents and will not only use KC’s line of performance lights, but also has a direct hand in developing a complete line of Deegan 38 brand lights and accessories that will be designed to outperform.
“To say we are excited is an understatement,” said KC HiLiTES owner and CEO, Michael DeHaas. “There’s a reason why this guy is the biggest name in action sports and his passion to be the best and succeed is what KC HiLiTES is all about. It is a great fit for us and the brand not to mention giving him a competitive advantage when the sun goes down.”
2015 will start a deliberate development process as the two powerhouses work together to develop new products and possibly even evolving existing ones. With a self imposed, early spring deadline for the first batch of products to enter the production phase, these new lights with a dramatic Deegan look, combined with KC’s superior optics, legendary performance and quality will be ready for a summer 2015 release. This will bring a new level of engagement for the iconic brand and give our distribution a new line to support the younger demographic that Deegan attracts.
“I am so excited to get started playing with these new lights. The new product they have is amazing, and I cannot wait to unleash some Deegan flavor on these LED’s,” said Brian. “It is exciting to see what they have done with the FLEX and Gravity technology that allows their LED’s to outperform any other LED in the market,” he added. With Brian competing on motorcycles, off road trucks, rally cars, monster trucks and anything else that requires precision control, KC HiLiTES will have something for every adventure at any level.
