H.I.D. (High Intensity Discharge) Lamps:
PIAA HID lamps have race proven performance and durability.
Combined with industry leading technology and state of the art
components, is why PIAA leads the industry in HID products. The bulbs
provide a crisp 4000 kelvin (pure white) rating to provide you with the
most light output possible from a xenon lamp. PIAA HID's are the number one choice for championship off-road racers around the world.Working with WRC Rally race teams, PIAA has designed a new high performance HID lamp. The introduction of the shock lamp has taken the racing world by storm. The PIAA HID Shock Lamps have crossed the finish line in first place more than any other light on the market. The Shock Lamps come in three popular sizes, a 4", 6", and an 8" lamp to fit any need or demand.
PIAA Off-Road & Racing Lights
All PIAA lights will stand up to off-road conditions. However our HID lamps are specifically designed to withstand the often severe punishment of off-road racing. The PIAA Shock lamps have the high output necessary for drivers who race to win. The Shock Lamps have set the standard in World Rally, U.S. Pro Rally, SCORE, BITD, and IMSA endurance races.
HID Bulb Technology
HID bulbs do not have filaments like standard halogen bulbs, but instead
consists of xenon gas, mercury, and metal halide salts. The xenon
gas is ignited by an arc of high-voltage current and glows
brightly (around 7X more output than Halogen Lamps). Also, the high voltage is supplied by a PIAA ballast combined with the perfect combination of gases have made PIAA's HID lamps the choice of winning racers around the world.
