The LifeGuard improves quad bike safety

Preventing injury from quad bike roll-overs has long been an issue and to date there’s been no really workable solution.

However, New Zealand firm Ag-Tech Industries claims to have an answer to the problem – the LifeGuard.

It’s a flexible horseshoe-shaped roll-over hoop that attaches to the rear rack of the bike.

In the event of a capsize it will support the weight of the machine, allowing the rider to escape.

The key feature of the LifeGuard is that, being made from plastic segments bound together by a strap, it can deform around the rider should it land on top of them.

Unlike a rigid roll-frame it spreads the weight of the bike, very much reducing the chance of injury, according to the firm.
