An enormous safety problem associated specifically with ATVs might soon have an answer. The New Traction Control Brakes/TCB seems to be the first universal piece of ATV safety equipment that can help avoid ATV accidents relating to braking.
Whether you, your family, or your friends ride an ATV you are probably well aware that a huge TV safety concern is ATVs flipping over on riders when they brake hard. When the ATV flips over ATV safety gear, equipment, and safety products can help you survive and minimize injuries, but Traction Brakes can help you avoid flipping the ATV in the first place.
The reason why ATVs flip over is because when traveling at high rates of speed and the brakes lock up there is a lot of momentum. The Traction Brakes aftermarket upgrade helps the brakes from locking and especially from locking up at high rates of speed.
On most ATVs and other motor sports vehicles brakes catch on the high or low spots on the brake rotor. The TCB system allows the brake pads to float over these places on the rotor and subsequently can help the ATV’s brakes from locking early when you are riding at high speeds. No other ATV safety gear and equipment we have seen yet can do this, so look at the aftermarket brakes advancement.
Another benefit is that Traction Control Brakes give you a more realistic feel of how much of the ATV’s braking power you are using. With the unit on your ATV you will feel more range in your braking controls, so you will better be able to feel how much brake you are using which helps you know how hard you have to apply the brakes before they lock. There are no electric aftermarket ABS upgrades, but from test results you will find that the TCB gives you better stopping distance and control so you do not need ABS.
