The Next Big Thing: Curved LED Light Bars

An exciting new product showcased at this year’s SEMA show were curved LED light bars from Vision X, Rigid Industries, Putco, Bulldog and Baja Designs. These manufacturers have really stepped up this year to innovate an already innovative industry!  Vision X will have a double-row 5w LED product available from their Xmitter Prime Xtreme product line in various sizes all the way up to 50″ wide!

The new Xmitter Prime XP LED light bars from Vision X will be available in 2014 in several different lengths.

Rigid Industries also debuted new curved LED light bars in a new “RDS” series light developed from the E-Series platform available in different lengths up to 54″.

Putco not only debuted an entirely new lineup of American made LED light bars this year but they also started the lineup with a curved variant:

Bulldog launched a new light bar line at the 2012 SEMA Show and this year (2013) they added a new single-row LED and dual-row LED curved light bar to the product line. The resemblance between Bulldog, Rigid Industries and the gambit of Chinese manufacturers still makes it difficult to differentiate the products when installed on vehicles, but it’s awesome seeing more and more product manufacturers (like Bulldog) making their parts within the USA.

New curved LED light bars from Bulldog are the only thing that seems different about the product line this year.

Last but not least, Baja Designs announced that their OnX LED light bar product line will now be available in a 30″ curved variant. 30″ isn’t big enough to fit on most trucks, but it should work on a race car or ATV pretty well:

  1. After reading and looking thru all of your images, I can tell you your data is all wrong, especially the information you have for Bulldog Lighting. Many of the images above that you gave credit to Rigid for are actual Bulldog Lights. In addition, from doing my research at the most recent 2013 show, Bulldog is one of the most innovative and full USA made companies making LED light bars and they are even certified. I also spent some time with Rigid and Baja and from just looking at and touching their lights there are clearly some similarities to the Chinese brands in the market.

  2. We respectfully request that you edit the information on your site immediately. As they are our patent pending Bulldog LED Lighting Curved Bars. We are the recipient of the Global Media Award for New Design and are the only company in the industry that has both a double row and single row Curved Bar. Bulldog LED lighting is Made in the USA of American Parts. We are not assembled Chinese parts. Do your homework! You have 24 hours to remove the Rigid name from pictures of our products. We will have our attorney notify you in person if you need and we will notify SEMA to investigate. They take Manufacturers IP very seriously, as do we. Thank you.

    • Hello Lisa, sorry for the mis-labeling on some pictures – it was not intentional. I believe I have fixed the labels and gave credit to Bulldog for pictures of Bulldog’s products. It is my goal to provide original and accurate content so I appreciate your feedback.
      The pictures and info posted about your product have been updated to reflect your wishes and if anything else seems out of place or incorrect please let me know. Also, I never said your products are assembled Chinese parts. I only suggested that the visible differentiation between Bulldog and Chinese manufacturers is lacking.

  3. The sad thing about this is… I went to all of the web sites of the manufactures listed here… and none of them have the brackets shown in photos.
