Expanding the lineup of FLEX ERA lights, the new FLEX ERA® 1 is the smallest and most versatile for a wide range of uses on off-road vehicles.

KC unveils the newest member to the FLEX ERA Family of lights, the long-awaited KC FLEX ERA® 1.

Contained in a compact size of less than 2.7”, the FLEX ERA® 1 packs major performance in a versatile package that can be used as forward-facing, side-facing, or rear-facing lighting. These new lights keep with the FLEX ERA Family tradition of having dual power modes; one mode is for the full, high-power output, and the other illuminates an eclipse-like amber backlight.

Setting a new industry standard, each set of FE1 lights comes standard as a Master Kit, so gone are the days of guessing which beam pattern is best for your application. The KC FLEX ERA 1 Master Kit bundles two lights, three beam pattern lenses, and all of the other necessities so less time is spent in the garage and more time out on the trails.

“Tony Fadell from Apple said that design starts with noticing,” says KC CEO Alan Wang. “Our team constantly pushes our limits to notice things that have become the norm and that we have taken for granted. We challenge ourselves to iterate on the aesthetic and functional features of our products while reducing the friction people experience. The new FLEX ERA 1 is a culmination of that effort to design by noticing how we can push the boundaries.”

Customization is still at the core of every FLEX ERA 1. The machine accent bezels come standard in gold on each FE1 light, but KC offers richly colored bezels in red, blue, or gloss black to suit your need.

The FLEX ERA 1 is the perfect companion for cruising trails and setting up camp with your friends. Powerful, bright, and compact, just as the most versatile light in the FLEX ERA Family ought to be.

Gone are the days of guessing which beam pattern will be best for you. The KC FLEX ERA® 1 Master Kit bundles two lights + all three beam pattern lenses + spare o-rings + black and yellow KC logo covers + a complete wiring kit for everything you need to spend less time in the garage and more time on the trails.


With 2,430 lumens of power in a compact package, the FE1 is the perfect companion for cruising trails or setting up camp with your friends. It can be used for all short-range lighting applications from bumper and ditch lights, to dust lights and scene/work lights. Combine this with the Amber LED backlight for style, and you've got the best of all worlds.


For all of the nooks and crannies, the FE1 mounting bracket was designed asymmetrically to make sure you can mount the light practically everywhere. It features adjustable mounting depth, width, height, and orientation all within the included brackets. Now you have the freedom to mount lights in places that you never thought were possible.


We get it, everyone loves to personalize their rig. That's why we stuck with our tried and true FLEX LED® tradition and ensured that you can change and stylize the colored accent bezel to match your rig. The FE1 bezels come standard in gold, but you can pick up the bezels in deep red, rich blue, or gloss black to suit your needs.


Every part of the FE1 was made with meticulous attention to detail for limit-defying performance. The finned aluminum housing strikes the perfect balance between weight, ruggedness, and corrosion resistance, and its IP68 rating means you can spend more time in the dirt and less time worrying. The FE1s can withstand any dust, dirt, and water that you throw at them and keep on asking for more.
