Lighting Zone 5 | Racer Edition Spot
Lens Pattern: Spot
This is the Racer Edition Spot light zone. These lights are designed for those that drive in the triple digits of speed off-road, or need to see thousands of feet down the road. Zone 5 lights produce an even tighter pattern than our traditional spots. Before adding lights in Zone 5, we recommend having a well-balanced lighting package in order to avoid separations of spotlights due to this much tighter pattern.
Lights in Zone 5 benefit from being placed higher up on your vehicle. As the tighter overall beam from these lights help to negate what would otherwise be a concern of glare coming back into the cab. Avoid mounting Zone 5 lights too low as to not block their overall distance throw caused by rocks and brush close to the vehicle. Try to use these top-mounted lights only when absolutely necessary, to avoid glare from dust and fog, excess power consumption, and eye fatigue.
Zone 5 lighting should be relative to your lighting in zones 3 and 4. Zone 5 lighting should be equal to, or more powerful than previous zones to avoid being washed out. Zone 5 are great used as search and rescue lights, as well as for other activities that require a powerful, tightly focused spotlight.
We only offer a spot pattern lens in Zone 5 lights, as they feature many components that are designed for use in distance-specific applications. Using a wider lens would be counterproductive to the goal of throwing light thousands of feet down the road.
