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.

Darren Skilton splashes his way through Dakar Stage 4On the road to Chilecito on Wednesday, Darren Skilton had to battle for every kilometer on Stage 4 of the Dakar Rally. “The frustrating part is that I know my car is very competitive,” Skilton explained.  “I am so anxious to get this fuel issue resolved so I can really show what the Revolution VI is capable of.”  What started as a bid for a top ten finish has turned into a fight just to survive each stage.  When running properly, Skilton has demonstrated that both he and his General Tire-shod buggy are very fast.  The team finished the special in 8 hours and 33 minutes, and then had to navigate to the bivouac in the dark on a narrow shelf road clinging to the side of a cliff through the Andes.  “The Baja Designs HID lights on the front of the car are incredibly bright and tough as nails,” Skilton reported.  “Visibility is one thing that I never have to concern myself with.”
