MORIMOTO: Has always been our go-to-guys when it came to HID, and when they released their line of LED products, we had our doubts. Performance left a little to be desired compared to some of the more refined models on the market. BUT (and thats a big BUT) that has since changed with the much more mature, refined second generations of each model they offer. While in all-honesty Morimoto didn’t exactly nail it the first time around on the LED bulbs, what we have from them today is about as modern as it gets and much more in-line with the quality and performance we’ve all come to expect from the brand.
BACK THAT THING UP! Morimoto’s new XB 921 LED Bulbs are designed just for reverse lights! Utilizing a big boy CREE XB-D LED emitted through a proprietary Kuria Optic clear glass lens, you’ll be able to actually see objects as you back up!
6061 AL: The extruded aluminum heatsink features a smooth 6-Fin design and is finished in a gorgeous graphite color to compliment other Morimoto LED bulbs. This bulb feels rock solid in your hands–no room for any chintzy cheap stuff here!
BEEFY BASE The white ceramic base handles heat much better than cheap plastic bases, and even though they’re only lit up for a brief period of time while you’re in reverse and probably wont get all that hot – why risk it? The printed “XB LED” graphics are a nice touch too.
CREE LED A single XB-D 5500K emitter blasts a very color-neutral white light through the mini projector lens. The output is end-firing like most 921 sockets require, meaning the light coming out of the bulb is aimed directly backward where you want it most!
