Baja Designs has been at the front of the off-road lighting industry for 30 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 Baja Designs being recognized as “The Scientists of Lighting”.  What makes us 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 and one of those factors would be our ClearView Technology.

What is ClearView?

ClearView is the proprietary optics that we have designed to give you the best light right where you need it most. Each reflector and lens pairing is designed to illuminate one or more of our specific nine lighting zones with a smooth and artifact fee light pattern.

Our engineers were the first to define these lighting zones and to design specific patterns for the lesser known cornering, dust, fog and high speed spot zones. All of our optics are designed in house by dedicated team of engineers who have first hand experience to deliver the best results for professional riders and drivers. The ability to put all of the light right where it is needed is the end result of years of research of building and racing for ClearView.

Lens Patterns:

Wide Cornering: The Wide Driving pattern offers a 42-degree flattened horizontal beam for the ultimate in comfort lighting. This pattern is specifically for cornering, dust, snow, rain, and/or fog conditions.

Driving Combo: Maximum trail coverage in a single light. The Driving/Combo pattern is equipped with both Driving (42-degree) and spot (9-degree) optics to provide you with a smooth blend of light for both near field applications and distance.

Spot: A longer and narrower 9-degree beam focus for illumination further down the trail or road. The Spot pattern is designed to be used in conjunction with additional Wide Driving and/or Driving/Combo beam lights.

Work/Scene: Excellent work light or “scene light” with an extremely smooth 120° circle that projects about 40ft. This pattern is not suitable for driving.


When we say we are the “Scientists of Lighting” we mean it, we have decades of experience to back it up. As a result Baja Designs ClearView technology was developed to give the driver the right light exactly where they need it, doing so through our proprietary optics and lens. With nine different Lighting Zones , whether it is Zone 1, Dust & Fog with a near field of vision or Zone 4, Spot to see far out racing down those back roads in Baja, we are able to ensure the drivers have everything they need from our ClearView Technology.
