Narva Gear To Take On Your Next 4x4 Trip
— August 21, 2020 | 2 min read
Never has there been a better time to holiday in your own backyard. Sure, it’s been forced upon us thanks to an indiscriminate pandemic that prevents flying, but when was the last time you explored your local surrounds?
For most, the answer will draw a blank. Backyard? Local surrounds? You mean fly to Noosa? We mean driving your 4x4 on the exciting long and winding roads that head into areas of your state or territory that are begging for you to visit – and explore!
Now before we go on, at the time of writing the majority of the country was only beginning to recover from the impact of COVID19. The same couldn’t be said of Victoria and to a lesser extent NSW, but hang in there, eventually your backyard will be open for business. And when it does those quaint country towns will be waiting for you to experience the amazing things they have to offer – particularly those that were hard hit by the bushfires at the start of the year.
The advantages of home exploration are made easier in that more Australians are purchasing utes or SUVs with off-road capabilities than ever before. What does this mean? It means that your 4x4 vehicle has the capability to take you deep into the great outdoors.
To ensure you make the most of your adventures, Narva has an impressive array of 4x4 parts and accessories that will not only keep you on the beaten track but get you safely home again. In addition, they’ll add a degree of extra style to your vehicle and possibly improve re-sale value.
Lighting is one of the biggest considerations when it comes to your vehicle and getting in and out of the bush after dark. High beams can only light so far, so Narva offers some of the very best lights, light bars and spotlights.
One of the most important accessories that you could ever want is the Narva ALS rechargeable LED headlamp. If you are setting up camp, making your way to the amenities or replacing a wheel after sunset, this 250 lumen strong headlamp - which wraps around your head - is the ideal companion, shining more light into the place where you need it most. As Kalen from Club 4X4 notes, it is "a feature packed unit" that allows you to "get a great flood of downward light without blinding your fellow campers".
Superbly built, versatile and user friendly, it is equipped with six features, including white, red and green light functions for different applications. It also has a cool motion activation sensor so you can turn the lights on and off without touching it. With a battery life of up to three hours, it has a two to three hour charge time, plus a red flashing SOS light function.
In addition to this, if hand held lights are your preference, Narva also offers ALS rechargeable 150 lumen LED pen lights, as well as an ALS rechargeable LED slim utility light that are available with either 350, 600 or 1000 lumens. All charge via USB lead and can fit comfortably into your pocket.
If you need something with even more power consider Narva’s Colt 1000 high power 6 LED hand held spot light. With 4000 lumens and a beam range of 285 metres, this lightweight Australian designed and tested spot light is great for the campsite or when hunting or fishing.
While these lights are the perfect accessory when outside of the car - or for emergencies - when you are driving sometimes you need more light than even your high beams can provide.
Fortunately, all of your exterior lightbars and spotlight needs are covered by Narva and they can be easily fitted to all OEM or aftermarket bullbars and nudgebars.
For example, Narva’s ultra slimline 14-inch single row Explora LED light bar includes twelve 5 Watt high powered LEDs that produce a more penetrating light down the road. This alone means that lights are 30 per cent brighter than conventional LED driving lightbars. The 9-32V multi-voltage input suits both 12 and 24V vehicles and is virtually unbreakable thanks to the tough polycarbonate lens.
And if you are after spotlights you can’t go past Narva’s Ultima 225 LED combination driving light kit. Each driving light has 5700 lumens, is fully sealed against water and dust, and its striking Euro design transforms your 4x4 or SUV into a luxurious escape vehicle.
But Narva is more than just lights, we offer a range of products that make life easier on the road.
To keep everything tied down, safe and secure, we’ve got an impressive range of cable ties in a range of sizes, plus we have fuses. A fuse can dislodge or blow easily if you are enjoying some rugged off-roading, so we have an easy to store case that contains 360 popular glass, and coloured mini blade and standard ATS blade fuses.
Finally, when you are on the road for hours it’s critically important to ensure you are contactable. Unless you are in the middle of nowhere and out of phone range - requiring you to pack a GPS phone – simply keeping your mobile phone charged will suffice. To help, Narva has a great range of re-charging products like the wireless phone charging cup. This stylish unit sits in your vehicle’s cup holder, is designed to fit phones up to 6.5inches in screen size and has fast charging capabilities.
So there you go. We could fill many books with Narva accessories that will make your off-roading adventure a safe and enjoyable one. But if you head out with some lighting basics, have cable ties and fuses at the ready and can keep your phone charged, you will be ready for everything that nature throws at you.
Happy driving and enjoy your backyard.
