ATV Roll bars?
11/26/12 at 09:50:55
 
Roll bars for ATVs discussed at U.S. safety commission summit

David Robertson, founder of the company Quadbar Australia, made a presentation on his Quadbar Crush Protection Device, which is a hairpin-shaped hoop mounted on the ATV behind the rider.

He says his device, which he only makes for utility quads, has been used successfully in Australia for a number of years and has proven effective at preventing injuries and deaths associated with ATV rollovers.

As further information the Quadbar Crush Protection Device sells for $583 Australian Dollars or roughly $562.00 US plus international shipping for what to me looks like $20 worth of bent tubing, U-bolt clamps and some paint.

What do you think should this be a mandated piece of ATV hardware?

I don't think it should be mandated and I honestly think there could be a much better design if it were to be required.  $500+ for that is ridiculous if you ask me.

I'll take my chances without it. Next thing you know is they'll put Height Restrictions on the trails.

Meh! I can see this as being yet another excuse for not wearing a helmet. The trails I (we) ride would be too low for this contraption. I've been through at least 8 roll-overs since starting my ATV'ing adventures, and the helmet has always protected my head.

..can't say much about my ribs or chest, though -- because when that ~900 pound ATV lands on you, it's not your head that takes the hit!

How about they let the riders decide what they want on their bikes. If it seems to be good idea for you...put one on. Just leave me alone if you please.

However...it might protect you from some low flying seagulls. Grin Grin
