The Quadbar Flexi has a flexible joint that allows the bar to flex rearwards in the inadvertent event of contact with an overhead obstacle. The top pipe can also be taken off easily to get the quad bike in a vehicle for transportation
The joint also facilitates some sideways flexibility before the joint locks and then becomes more of a traditional CPD or ROPS. Ingeniously, in the event of a rearwards overturn there is negligible movement from the flexi joint.
The Quadbar is a small unobtrusive, structure mounted on the quadbike behind the rider designed to counter some of the risks associated with rollovers. The Quadbar acts as a Crush Protection Device (CPD) as opposed to the more commonly known roll over protective structures (ROPS).
A typical ROPS would require a full cage and driver restraint, which are not feasible on a rider active vehicle such as a quadbike. The innovative new design allows the top half to flex when needed but then 'locks' to offer the protection to the rider in the same way as a traditional rollbar.
The height is adjustable when installing the Quadbar Flexi by cutting the lower structure tube to the desired length.
