Another great feature of the LifeGuard®, is if the Quad rolls, and even if the LifeGuard® doesn’t come in contact with the rider, it will provide space under the Quad, also spreading the weight and making it quite possible to push the bike off you… The danger of a conventional Roll Bar fitted to a Quad, is the possibility of the roll bar could striking the rider on the ground, inflicting injury or death. Most, if not all other roll bars are rigid, and although strong and can give crush protection, are rather unforgiving if they strike the rider.
Looking After Your Equipment - And Yourself
We pride ourselves on producing high quality gear that will keep you safe when you’re out working hard on your farm. But like all good things, to keep our gear working hard, it needs to be regularly checked and serviced to remain at optimal working condition. One good example is the LifeGuard, which has already saved a number of lives across New Zealand and Australia since its launch in 2013. Because the unique LifeGuard design allows it to flex around you if your ATV ever rolls, it is made of fabric-based materials which will naturally break down over time, both from general wear and tear and being out in the elements, especially New Zealand’s harsh sun.
These hard-working, lifesaving roll bars are no different to a parachute, a bungy cord or the brakes on your car. Look after them and if the time comes, they’ll be there to look after you.
