Penton 44-inch Light Bar

Light up the night with the 44” LED light bar from Penton. This full sized light bar fits perfectly on off-road vehicles of all shapes and sizes. Penton builds a solid product that performs far beyond its price range. The 44” model’s casing is made of die cast aluminum and the lens formed from hardened glass to make it as rugged as it is bright. The relatively low power draw makes it ideal for installation on any DC power system from 10 to 45 volts. Drawing 20 amps at 12v and 10 amps at 24v it can easily run on factory electrical systems without worrying about overloading the alternator. Still not sure? Here are a few more reasons to check this light bar out.


CREE is an industry leader in semiconductor and microchip production. Their high-efficiency LED chips produce an amazingly bright pure white light while using less power than competitors. For you this means longer battery life and less load on the alternator while running the light bar.

Combination Pattern

Penton uses precision shaped lenses to focus the light produced by the LEDs into a combination spot and flood pattern. The outer lights spread out in a 60 degree cone to light up the surroundings. The center lenses focus the beam in a 30 degree cone to pierce the night farther out in front of the bar. This combination gives excellent illumination both up-close and at a distance making it an excellent choice for any nighttime work or play.

    I bought this bar to install on the front of my Peterbilt semi. I haul hogs and drive down many poorly maintained country roads and paths at night. It is not uncommon for me to drive to a location in order to load the truck in the middle of the night, load the livestock, and drive to the sale barn. This light bar has proven instrumental in illuminating the entire process. I am more than satisfied with this product.

    This is a really great product. After reading the many reviews, I hesitated by the light bar at first. For the price, I decided to take a chance and am glad I did. I installed the light bar on a Yamaha Rhino and cannot believe the level of brightness that this thing produces. So far it has handled the abuse well. I have no complaints and would recommend the light to others.
