25 years ago, Baja Designs was founded with a passion and thirst for off-road. Performance driven and race proven – Baja Designs engineers and manufactures American made products, using only the best components available, right here in San Diego, California. Since the beginning, we have engineered revolutionary ways to stay at the forefront of motorcycle and automotive lighting. The first product developed was a Dual Sport kit that made pure off road motorcycles minimally street legal. Our intimate knowledge of motorcycle electrical capabilities eventually led us to engineer the first HID motorcycle race light. Founder and Lead engineer Alan Roach, an avid Baja 1000 motorcycle racer, was able to fine tune a motorcycle’s limited light optics to maximize rider comfort, speed, and safety. As a result, BD lights have won every professional and amateur motorcycle and ATV Baja 1000 class for over 15 years. As our engineers and racers advanced to truck and buggy racing, the next evolution began. The engineers quickly adapted their race winning HID motorcycle lights to their new race vehicles. With amazing speed, BD HID lights were adopted by the vehicle race community and could be found on the majority of Baja 1000 winning vehicles. In the process, BD engineers became well known as “The Scientists of Lighting” and were sought out by professional race teams to develop and aim their vehicle lighting. LED lights were the next natural evolution of lighting and BD was the first company to develop a forward projecting LED light bar which was introduced and raced in the 2005 Baja 1000. That original LED light bar has evolved into a line of the highest performing and race winning LED lights on the market. Revolutionizing industry leading lights is not just a job at BD, but a lifelong passion for both the owners and employees. The BD product line is dedicated to being BRIGHTER, BOLDER, and BETTER, which is why we truly are “The Scientists of Lighting”.
Turn NIGHT to DAY with our Daylight 5000K TECHNOLOGY: USP No. 3
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.

Attain 100% POWER OUTPUT with CopperDrive Technology: USP No.3
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. Our circuit boards use copper instead of aluminum to help transfer heat more efficiently from the LED to the thermal gap [...]
Baja Designs Next Generation Squadron
Our Squadron is known for being one of the most popular lights we have to offer, and it is no secret the performance is incredible. When we launched the Squadron SAE, we were excited about the performance, but we knew we wanted more. So our engineers returned to the drawing board to re-engineer the light that not only meets SAE regulations but outperforms the competition giving the best performance possible while being road legal. Current backorders of our [...]
