|Built to weather the perfect storm.|
|San Marcos, CA – May 7th, 2013 - Baja Designs’ Scientists constantly research the latest technologies for ways to make their LED lights better. Their new Moisture Block cord is an innovative new technology that solves one of the biggest problems that plagues LED lights – water in the light. Moisture Block completely stops water from wicking its way up the cord and into the lights.|
“Our lights have to be impervious to pretty much everything – dust, rain, snow, water crossings and collisions to name a few,” says founder and Chief Engineer Alan Roach. “Our new Moisture Block cord system is a fail-safe way to make sure that our lights are 100% waterproof no matter how harsh the conditions are and even if the customer cuts off our waterproof connector,” says Roach.
The Moisture Block functions exactly to its name, completely blocking moisture or water from working it’s way through the cord and into your LED light. Even if you cut the connector off, your light is still waterproof and you won‘t void your warranty. Moisture Block, another great innovation in lighting from the Scientists of Lighting at Baja Designs.
In other news, the Baja Designs’ Scientists of Lighting have yet another “bright” idea made better. Squadron and SII LED lights are now available in an attractive and salt water resistant white coating. These MIL-SPEC lights provide amazing light output with incredible functionality and customization.
“I am an avid fishing enthusiast and as everyone knows, boat deck lighting can be power hungry and extremely fatiguing to the human eye,” says Mitchell. “The Squadron and SII are available in four patterns and utilize uService™ technology which gives the pattern choices and customization that has been lacking in the marine market. On top of that, the 5000 kelvin color temperature is comfortable to the eye and provides excellent color recognition.”
Baja Designs is attending

Baja Designs’ Scientists Evolve uService™ LED Lighting Systems
SAN MARCOS, CA – Baja Designs (BD) has always engineered and manufactured LED lighting systems with replaceable lenses and optics. Amazingly enough, almost all other LED bars are silicone sealed and not serviceable. If a BD lens is scratched or scored, you don’t replace the entire light as you do with most imported products, nor do you need to send it back to the manufacturer as you would with other popular LED lights.
BD’s uService™ technology allows you to simply unscrew BD’s water and dust proof lens and seal to replace the damaged optics or lens. On top of that, the same uService™ technology means you can also change the optics of your light. When you consider that BD also includes a limited lifetime warranty on all their lights, uService™ offers the ultimate in purchase protection.
“Racing off-road for over 25 years has taught BD engineers to design products to endure even the roughest of conditions. Our uService™ replaceable lenses and optics will further guarantee a race finish while also saving you money from needing to buy a replacement light,” says Chief Scientist and Baja Designs founder, Alan Roach. Alan also added, “You wouldn’t throw out your car if your windshield cracks, would you? No, you’d just replace the windshield. So why would anyone design a disposable LED driving light? That’s crazy!”
Baja Designs has also evolved the uService™ technology to permit “customization.” Replaceable lenses and optics allow you to customize your pattern for any application on the fly or make repairs quickly and easily. BD’s uService™ products are uniquely o-ring sealed and carry an IP69K rating – that means they are submersible up to 9 feet and pressure washer-safe up to 1450 PSI. Catch the company’s YouTube video featuring Zog the Caveman attempting to rebuild his disposable lights while the Baja Designs Scientist easily breezes through his rebuilding process in minutes.
Look for the uService™ icon on all applicable LED products from Baja Designs. More product news from Baja Designs in the upcoming months will reveal a complete series of innovations designed to continually bring you a re-evolution of bright ideas made better.

The Scientists of Lighting at Baja Designs would like to thank all of their sponsored KOH race teams and congratulate Bomber Fabrication’s Randy Slawson for an amazing victory at this year’s 2013 Griffin King of the Hammers race. A long week of preparation and pre-running culminated in a very exciting race on Friday. This year’s KOH was witnessed by a record crowd out at Hammertown and an even larger following via the live internet broadcast. Staying true to its name, King of the Hammers was more relentless and unforgiving than ever before, allowing just 27 finishers out of 129 racers.
Bomber Fabrication’s Randy Slawson had this to say, “We chose to outfit our Bomber Fabrication race car #4448 with two Squadron Wide-Corning lights and one 8″ OnX LED Light bar (with all spot reflectors). This combination allowed us to tune our suspension well into the night in preparation for our bid at the 2013 King of the Hammers. End result, on February 8, 2013 we were crowned “King” of the 2013 King of the Hammers. We highly recommend Baja Designs lighting systems for race applications, recreation off-roading and expedition excursions.”
The Scientists of Lighting – at Baja Designs are thrilled to be part of the 2013 King of the Hammers spectacle. Ultra 4 racing has become well known as one of the toughest race series in the United States and King of the Hammers is the granddaddy of them all. The scientists of Baja Designs will have a booth setup so everyone can see their lights, including the new OnX LED that provides the distance of an HID with the smoothness of an LED. BD scientist will also be on hand to help aim your lights and recommend the ultimate lighting setup for your vehicle. Bluetorch Fabworks owner and racer, Jason Carner says, “We are all really excited for this year’s KOH, and even though we hope we won’t have to use our BD lights for this race, we always know we have the best in the business.”
The new OnX motorcycle mount allows you to harness the unsurpassed distance and smooth spread of the Baja Designs OnX 8” LED light bar on your motorcycle. Now you can easily mount the 8” OnX LED bar to your stock handle bar mount and achieve more light than ever available, as well as easy aim and go adjustability. After years of engineering and advances in LED technology we at Baja Designs can proudly say that our LED lights are officially the future of off road racing. The new OnX LED Light Bar is the only light bar on the market that has the distance of an 8” HID with the smooth spread of an LED. Each OnX M/C light offers a concentrated beam of 3600 lumens. Countless hours of testing and preparation have ensured that the OnX is be perfect for racers and enthusiasts that need a vast amount of light at high speeds. The OnX utilizes a Cree XML T6 Bin LED at 5000k, which will be complimented by our one of a kind user changeable optics that have been specifically designed for the OnX’s HID like distance projection. If you’re looking for the guaranteed farthest projecting LED light on the market, look no further.
