Dual Squadron XL Race Light

For those who want a race-ready LED to clear a trail, or for those ready to swap out their Baja Designs LaPaz 8'' Race Light for a LED with the power to outshine. We at Baja Designs proudly introduce the Dual Squadron XL Race Light, Including 2 new Squadron XL's of whichever pattern you choose, wiring harness and mounting brackets, this light kit is sure to light up the darkest of trails. And using the Squadron XL's high speed LED, you get the brightness and carry of a HID, and the durability and longevity of a LED. This race light runs at 8600 lumens, with a draw of 86 watts, and a weight of 6.45 lbs. You too can light up the night with the new Dual Squadron XL Race Light for $874.95 available at BajaDesigns.com. For any addition questions or forum discount shoot me an Email (Christian@bajadesigns.com), message or phone call (760) 560 2252.

We will have some pictures of it on-bike when we get the light back from SEMA, but it mounts to our Racelight quick-release receiver kits like so:


Thanks for the question, and if want anymore pics or have questions I would be more than happy to answer them.

This will replace the Twin 8" La Paz in so far as the depth of the beam/
So is this a 100+mph light solution and is it comparable to the KTM B1K (PR/OnX/OnX) light?

Pretty cool that BD is selling the KTM light, do you also sell the frame lug to fit it?

We are still testing the Dual Squadron XL Racelight, and we will have definitive results. As far as I am aware the 8'' LaPaz HID will project a little bit farther, but when comparing it to the Dual Squadron you will definitely get a wider beam spread. And yes the Squadron XL's are all high-speed but the KTM B1K will still provide the best Racelight performance. But unless your willing to pay for the B1K, I would say you will be more than satisfied with the performance of the Dual Squadron XL Racelight.

Updates or feedback?

Baja Designs: Any light performance graphs? More photos of installed lights? Other data?

Users: Any feedback on the lights? Their operation? The install?

Thank you... these lights look great on paper!

I have the regular squadrons on my GS. The quality is great, they seem to be made with top quality in mind. Looking at the housing, it's a work of art!

I've run them now for over 20k miles in all weather conditions and on ALL the time but on a dimmed setting (20%) most of the time and full power on highbeam switch.. It doesn't matter what else I'm in, it feels like the headlights are off now compared to the GS. My wife was just bitching at me last night for constantly turning the high-beams on and off on her car with HID Projectors. I just felt like I didn't have a good view of the road.

They are expensive but I've not regretted my purchase at all. I did have 1 issue with my dimmer and they had a new one overnighted to me with an RMA label for the old one. No BS, no 'give us a credit card', no ship it on my dime... just fixed it immediately.

BD will be my choice for all future aftermarket lighting.

Vertically stacked would have been way cooler.

To get the full use of light patterns and optimal performance our ClearView optics the choice was made to go horizontal. A vertically stacked Double race light with these LEDs would have caused a waste of light due to the overlapping of patterns.

Dual Squadron XL Race Light

I run the twin lapaz hid lights on my xr


Are these LEDs better or worse than the HIDs for all round use?

Can you dim these LEDs?

Is the squadron xl the same as the squadron ?

Thanks

For all around use the Squadron XL's are a much high quality and more durable light. The Squadron XL's come with an internal dimmer that can be activated by a momentary switch, which we also have available. The Squadron XL and the Squadron provide the same amount of lumens (4300), but the way that the Squadron XL provides a high-speed beam that allows you to drive at 100mph + without any worry of outrunning you light. This gives you a "safety light" to feel comfortable riding at high-speeds. Let me know if you have any more questions or want more information I will be more than happy to help.- Christian

So what sort of distance and width (meters pls) can you expect from the squadrons ?

Does the kit weigh less than the twin lapaz lights I have ?
