Our Story

Born in Melbourne enjoyed the world over

While our products flash and ding and lighten up the world, we are a proudly Australian design business. Our home is in Melbourne, but we’ve taken flight all over the world. Co-founders Hugo Davidson (designer) and Mal McKechnie (engineer) started working together long before Knog. They’ve always shared the same vision: to make innovative, best-in-class products that inspire people to explore the great outdoors on foot or two wheels.

Lighting Specialists Since 2002

Knog is a relatively new player in the headlamp market, but we’re not new to lighting. We’ve been a world-leader in the bike light industry for almost 20 years, creating dozens of innovative, best-in-class lighting solutions for the road, trail and outdoors. Picking up over 15 design and industry awards in the process.

For the Bilby 400, our team of expert product designers collaborated with a panel of experienced outdoorsmen to create a headlamp that delivers on all fronts, while alleviating many of the frustrations; no more frayed straps that lose elasticity, no more disposable batteries, no more leaky LED housings and no more complicated user manuals.The Bilby 400 is a considered and intuitive design that truly does set a new standard in hands-free lighting.

Our diversity, is our strength

At Knog we celebrate diversity in all its glorious forms. With a team that comes from all over the world with a plethora of different skills and experiences. It is our collectively shared value of being obsessed with making the best products possible, that keeps us as one.
