Crash Pad head, alu, anodized, black
Our new LSL-Crash Pad is a combination of shiny aluminium with a replaceable plastic insert. The alloy part is machined and has a very smooth surface that is either anodised or powder/transparent coated depending upon colour. The rounded shape prevents the pad hooking into the tarmac or street surface. The plastic insert reduces the impact when the bike falls over and slows the bike down when it is sliding. In the case of a small crash simply replace the plastic insert for repair. The backward located "touch-down" area, of the plastic inserts steers the bike whilst it is sliding, preventing the bike from spinning. There is less risk of overturning and thereby reduced damage to the bike. A 3D computer simulation shows the basis of the design concept and shows colourfully the force/impact the pad absorbs. Incident records of many years confirm this function.
