In an emergency, it protects the tank and the frame in the area of the steering head from major damage in the event of a falling over, crash or accident. More importantly, it also protects your hands and arms from being trapped. We are talking about the steering stop. An often small, inconspicuous metal block that determines the maximum angle of the steering head. Actually a sensible thing. If there were not one serious point: the welded or forged, often undersized stops are often bent or even torn off when force impacts, which inevitably results in the loss of the operating licence because the frame loses its approval. This is because the inconspicuous component is relevant for the main inspection. Our energy-absorbing steering stop limiter provides a solution.
The original steering stops, the frame and the tank are reliably protected by our limiters, which are supported at a suitable, stable point on the frame at maximum steering angle, and they reduce the risk of damage! They limit and dampen the steering angle in the event of a falling over or a fall by means of their large rubber blocks, even before the standard steering stops are reached with full force. The material properties of the limiters are selected in such a way that the impact damping is initially soft and becomes progressive as the steering angle increases. They absorb the impact energy, protect the original steering stops and reduce the risk of bending or breaking the standard steering stop. Of course, in the event of a crash, the limiters also create space for hands and forearms and reduce the risk of jamming. For technical reasons, the protective function requires a slight reduction in the steering angle, which is inconspicuous in everyday use. Of course, the function of the steering lock is not affected.Function
