Baja Designs has been at the front of the off-road lighting industry for over 25 years, with countless Baja 1000 class victories and many other championship titles to our name it’s no wonder our lights are the most popular on the grid.  Tireless and constant innovation has led to BD being recognized as “The Scientists of Lighting”.  What makes Baja Designs shine over the competition is a combination of performance, technology, and ease of use that all come together in a superior light that lights up the terrain ahead or around your vehicle. Let’s dive into what makes Baja Designs superior to other off-road lights on the market today.


We will be going deeper into each unique selling point in the upcoming months, so here is an overview to get you acquainted with each unique point of Baja Designs lights.

Clearview – All the light, right where you need it

Clearview is our proprietary optic lens, which is computer-designed in-house at Baja Designs. The goal of our Clearview optics is to provide the clearest light without distortion or artifacts so that you have the most light projecting the terrain in front.  This helps to give users a more usable spread of light and not just a hot center of intense light that is hard to drive off of.  Less driver fatigue combined with a cleaner usable spread of light is what Clearview is all about.

uService – Easily service your own lights

Every single light that Baja Designs makes is user-serviceable, or what we call uService. Being able to service your own equipment is a necessity when out on the trail or back home in your garage. You never know when damage will happen while out on your adventures. As enthusiasts ourselves, Baja Designs set out to make a light that is easily serviceable without damaging your performance lights. This is the core mission behind our uService technology that’s built into every light Baja Designs produces.

The serviceability of our lights is based on the compression of our unique O-ring seal that protects the sensitive internals of your lights from the elements such as dust and water. Where lesser quality lights use a silicone seal that is not designed for serviceability and is prone to seal leaks, the Baja Designs O-ring design allows our lights to be totally serviceable by the user who can service and adjust the beam pattern with replacement lenses that are offered from Baja Designs.

Moistureblock – Waterproof, Rainproof, submersible

Being on the trail, you need your lights to work no matter what the conditions are. From heavy rain to being submerged in water, to dust storm conditions or snow, you need to know that your performance LED lights can withstand the elements while being up to the adventure. At Baja Designs making sure every light we produce works in the worst of conditions is the core of our exclusive MoistureBlock technology.

The ingress of moisture working its way into your light can cause severe damage to the internals such as reflectors, LEDs or worse creating a short that renders your lights less effective on the trails. Making sure the elements don’t damage the internals of your performance lights first starts with our use of O-ring seals at key areas that moisture or dirt can get into. O-rings have been around for a while, and for good reason. They are considerably more effective at blocking moisture and dust than that bead of silicone often seen in lower-quality lights. Also, with IP69K and Mil-Std810 compliance, you do not have to worry about submerging our lights when fording that river.  Using O-rings allows our lights to be totally serviceable, thanks to Baja Designs’ uService technology.  This feature allows you to customize our lights with several of our lens kits to match your lighting needs.

Copperdrive – Driving LEDs at 100% Safely

BD’s CopperDrive LED management system uses next-gen circuit board and driver technology to safely run high-powered LEDs at 100% power. 4 levels of thermal management transfer LED heat up to 3000% more efficiently and provide an extra layer of vibration isolation creating the highest performing and longest lasting LED light on the market.

5000k Daylight – Natural Color, less Fatigue

Human eyes have evolved to see best at noon on a sunny day which translates to a color temperature of 5000° Kelvin.   A color temperature of 5000K greatly reduces driver fatigue and increases terrain recognition. BD exclusively uses 5000K LEDs to ensure the safest and highest performing driving experience.
