Examine the types of beam patterns and uses to determine the best beam pattern for your vehicle. This will be largely dependent on how you intend to use the light.
Spot beams are great for long-range visibility, while flood beams provide a wider spread of light for better peripheral vision. Combination beams offer a balance of both spot and flood beams.
You can read about beam patterns in our knowledge base article "The Different Types of Beam Patterns for Off-Road Light Bars and Pods."
Off-road and power sport spot lights are narrower light beams better suited for higher-speed driving. The more focused beam allows you to prepare for upcoming obstacles and long-distance visibility.
Driving lights accent a vehicle’s existing beams, extending the light further ahead. Unlike spot lights, driving lights illuminate a broader area. They’re great for off-roading and used to provide greater visibility on paved roads after dark.
Fog lights increase visibility in harsh conditions like fog, rain, snow, or even dust and dirt. Fog lights are typically installed and used in combination with your vehicle’s existing headlights.
Flood lights only direct a beam a short distance but provide a wide area of light and are great for use on vehicles performing tasks at night, such as roadwork, harvesting, or driving on curvy roads and side roads.
A combo beam can be the best of both worlds. Combo beams have LED lights that supply spot and flood beams with a single light for widespread and long-distance illumination and brightness.
Rock lights are meant to be installed underneath vehicles so that rocks and debris that might potentially cause damage to the vehicle are visible. They are rugged and made with durable materials to withstand damage, dust, water, and other extreme conditions.
Side shooter LED off-road lights illuminate 180 degrees or more of the vehicle’s terrain. These expand even further beyond a flood light’s standard field of view.
Lumens Required for Off-Road and Power Sports Vehicles
Lumens measure the total amount of visible light emitted by a source. When it comes to off-road LED lighting, lumens are an important factor to consider when selecting the right lights for your vehicle.
Lumens determine how much light is produced. The optic is what is responsible for how far the light can travel. This is not just based on lumens only. A 50W spot light will shine farther than a 50W flood light, even though they will produce roughly the same lumens. The higher the lumen rating, the brighter and further the light reaches. By understanding lumens, you can ensure you select the best lights for your vehicle and get maximum visibility.
The required lumens for off-road driving and power sports depend on various factors, such as the type of vehicle, terrain, and speed at which you're traveling. However, a minimum of 3,000 lumens per light is recommended for off-road driving and power sports. We offer LED off-road lights up to 23,040 lumens.
If you're traveling at high speeds on rough terrain, you'll need brighter lights to see obstacles and react quickly. Additionally, if you're driving in areas with poor visibility or during nighttime hours, you may need even more lumens for enhanced visibility and to ensure your safety and the safety of others.
While lumens are important when selecting lights for off-road driving and power sports, they're not the only factor. Other factors to consider include the beam pattern, color, construction materials, and overall quality of the lights.
Colors for Off-Road Lights
White LED lights produce extremely bright light, which is essential for off-road and power sports applications. This allows drivers and riders to see further down the trail or track and spot obstacles more easily.
White LEDs for off-road and power sports are brighter than amber lights. This is one of the most significant benefits because white lights can be up to 15% brighter than amber lights due to the lens's color.
Amber-colored LEDs are a popular choice for off-road and power sports vehicles as warning or indicator lights. Drivers typically use amber-colored lights to ensure they are seen by others when driving as a safety precaution.
Yellow light is easier for human eyes to perceive than other colors, making it an excellent choice for off-road and power sports applications where visibility is key. Yellow light can help improve visibility in rain, snow, fog, dust, and other harsh conditions.
Yellow light is less harsh on the eyes than other colors, which can help reduce eye fatigue during extended periods of use. This can be especially important in off-road and power sports applications when operating in low-light conditions for extended periods. Yellow light produces less glare than other colors, improving visibility without strain or discomfort.
Yellow-colored LEDs can be an excellent choice for off-road and power sports applications due to their improved visibility, reduced eye fatigue or glare, and legal compliance in some areas.
The voltage required for off-road LED lights can vary depending on the specific lights you are using. However, most off-road LED lights are designed to operate on a range of voltages, typically between 12 and 24 volts DC.
Check the specifications of your LED lights to ensure that you supply them with the correct voltage. Providing too little voltage can result in dim or flickering lights, while too much voltage can damage the lights and potentially cause a fire hazard.
If you need clarification on the voltage requirements for your specific LED lights, consult our product pages and specification sheets. You can also contact our customer support for guidance. Contact Super Bright LEDs at 866-590-3533, via live chat on our site, or email us anytime.

Our Deutsch (also known as DT) connectors and ATP connectors can work together. Deutsch connectors are standard for off road and power sports lighting, and we offer connectors that can connect multiple lights. ATP connectors are a good choice for larger light bars due to their ability to handle higher current draws. We recommend DT and ATP connectors for 32” light bars and longer ones.
A rocker switch is an electrical switch operated by a rocking mechanism. It typically consists of a small rectangular housing containing a spring-loaded lever, or "rocker," that can be pressed down on one side or the other to activate or deactivate an electrical circuit. These are common in off-road vehicles and power sports due to the ability to be controlled with a single touch.
Off-road and power sport rocker switches are typically rated for 12V to 24V DC power and have high amperage ratings ranging from 10 amps to 40 amps or more. They may also feature waterproof or weather-resistant designs to protect against the elements and rugged environments.
Before installing a rocker switch on your off-road or power sports vehicle, it's important to follow proper wiring techniques and ensure the switch is properly grounded and installed. Improper installation can result in electrical shorts, damaging your vehicle’s electrical system, or creating a fire hazard.
We offer a variety of individual switches as well as switch panels with on/off momentary switches. If you're uncomfortable installing a rocker switch, it's best to consult a professional mechanic or electrician with experience with off-road and power sports vehicles.
