Baja Designs – Shop Tour

Race-Dezert hit the road again and didn’t have to travel far to get to Baja Designs since they are based in San Marcos, CA. Baja Designs is one of the premier lighting companies in offroad racing. Baja Designs was started in 1992 by Alan Roach. They are mostly known in the bike/atv world for their dual sport kits and bike lighting. They have plenty more to offer for all kinds of vehicles though!

When you first walk in to their store you will see most of the products they make on display. There are some very cool posters around the showroom as well.

Their light designs start using CAD drawings and then are “printed” out using their 3D printer. This thing is pretty awesome and turns your computer drawings into real life images.

Once the prints come out and they can verify everything is correct, the product is sent into production.

New Lights In Production

After the machine production the lights are off to assembly where they are assembled in house and tested to make sure everything is in working order.

 Once the lights are assembled and tested they are ready to light up the night! There is a good amount of inventory kept in stock at Baja Designs so hopefully whatever you need is ready when you need it.

Of course everyone has to have their fun too. There is a couple “Toys” in the back of the shop.

Thanks again to Baja Designs for letting Race-Dezert stop by and check out their operation. Be sure and check out the rest of the pictures down below in the gallery. If you are looking for more info on their lights please visit their website at

    I’ve been running the Baja Designs lights in KOH races since 2008. Best lights on the market and second to none. The people behind the company are awesome too!
