Few riders begin their life of off-road adventures as an adult. Most were first dipped in the world of riding when they were young and every trail led to exploration and every lap around a backyard track delivered a thrill that could be found nowhere else. For many it began as a family affair, with friends or relatives that made the world a little bigger and more filled with wonder. Once tasted, that feeling would never go away.

Big Government Wants to Limit Your Off-road Ability…We Disagree! Stand Up and Let Your Voices Be Heard!

2014.polaris.cpsc-ruling.act-now-to-protect-your-freedom-to-ride.jpg
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) wants to design your next off-road side-by-side (ROV) vehicle.Despite the willingness of off-road manufacturers, along with the Recreation Off-Highway Vehicle Association (ROHVA), to work in unison with the CPSC to develop ongoing safety improvements for all off-highway vehicles, the CPSC appears determined to mandate handling and performance capabilities, and require excessive and potentially unsafe restraint systems for future ROVs. If not halted, the mandate will unnecessarily limit design freedom in the off-road industry and negatively impact off-road customers.The proposed CPSC “rule” would require the manufacturers to make arbitrary design changes to all future side-by-side vehicles. The proposed changes could lead to future off-road vehicles with reduced steering response, reduction in ground clearance, and more restrictive driver and passenger restraint and seatbelt systems.
