CopperDrive® – Shines Brighter, Runs Harder, Cools Faster, Lives Longer

Press Release:

August 13th, 2013

San Marcos, CA – Baja Designs’ CopperDrive® LED Management System permits their lights to shine brighter, run harder, cool faster and live longer. High output white LEDs generate a lot of heat, requiring proper thermal management to safely drive them at 100% power. 100% power is the only way to get the lumen count promised by the LED manufacturer.

The Scientists of Lighting at Baja Designs have designed their CopperDrive® with four levels of heat management. Copper core printed circuit boards are combined with thermally conductive gap pads, aircraft grade aluminum heat sinks and microprocessor controlled thermistors to achieve both a high level of performance and a 49,930 hour lifespan of the LEDs.

“I could do what everyone else does and run our lights at 70% power to preserve the longevity of the LED, but I would rather use proper thermal management techniques and available airflow to push the LED to 100% so that we get a brighter package in a smaller space.” –Alan Roach, Owner/Chief Engineer/Mad Scientist: Baja Designs

How exactly does CopperDrive® work? Copper is 60% more conductive than aluminum, and thermal gap pads are 50% more efficient than thermal paste (100% more efficient than nothing) at transferring heat away from the LEDs. In addition, Baja Designs’ heat sinks are specifically designed to optimize the surface area and airflow over the light. The last layer of heat management is thermistors that monitor the temperature at the LED to ensure that even in the hottest environments your LED stays safe and bright.

CopperDrive® allows Baja Designs to deliver the brightest, longest lasting LED auxiliary lights available.

“Either of these kits are incredible lights to ride with. After installing these on my personal bike, not only do they provide a smooth blend of light for slow technical riding, but also the distance that’s needed for high speed terrain.” –Trent Kirby, Marketing Manager Baja Designs.

The Baja Designs Triumph Tiger and Suzuki V-Strom Adventure Kits are equipped with everything you will need for a complete installation on a 2013 Triumph Tiger 800XC, a Suzuki V-Strom DL650 (2004-’11) or DL1000 (2002-’12). Users have the option of choosing between Baja Designs powerful Squadron® and SII LED lights.

Squadron® and SII LED lights maintain a 49,930 hour LED life expectancy, and are backed by a limited lifetime warranty. Utilizing the highest quality LEDs with an optimal 5000k color temperature rating and optics that offer both distance and the smooth spread of an LED, Baja Designs products efficiently reduce eye strain on long night rides.

Fear not water crossings, as these lights are rated IP69K, which renders them submersible up to 9 feet. This may come in handy when you pick the wrong line and end up in deeper water than expected.
Whether you are riding the concrete jungle or crossing the Continental Divide, Baja Designs brings you the LED lights needed to fight the night and make your adventure bike tough.
