Crow Enterprizes offers a full line of safety gear and tie-downs for your type of racing. Driver restraints are available for Off Road, Quarter Midget, Drag Racing, Sprint Car, Formula, and Stock Cars.
A new item that is available from Crow for harness applications is the Dog Bone tapered design for the shoulder belts. The harness tapers from 3 inches to 2 inches, and then back to 3 inches to accommodate head-and-neck restraint systems.
When ordering your belts, just add $12 and an “H” to the part number to add the Dog Bone harness to any restraint system.
For many racers, head-and-neck restraints have two big drawbacks: they tend to be pricey and they are cumbersome to wear. Well, the new defNder team-issue head-and-neck device addresses the issues of price and fit and still provides great protection.
While it may look similar to other HNR devices on the market, defNder’s unique design incorporates flexible formfit belts and a stabilizer bar chassis design that offers drivers unparalleled comfort. The design of the system allows you to put it on straight over your head, just as you would your helmet, and gives you complete freedom of mobility by allowing you to turn your head to the left and right.
The device has easily achieved the SFI-38.1 certification for HNRs in testing. The defNder’s figures were very consistent in both frontal and 30-degree tests, a testament to the significant amount of emphasis defNder’s design team placed on side-impact protection.
The defNder is constructed from high-performance injection composites, and features the highest grade hardware and technically advanced nylon in the Motion-Max tether system, the heart of the side impact protection. Motion-Max incorporates something the manufacturer calls VST geometry which acts as a stabilizer in side-impact scenarios. This is also the same system that allows you the freedom of turning your head left to right.
A big plus in the design of the defNder are the harness flares which locate your safety belts and keep the device from sliding around. You can easily exit your vehicle in an emergency situation.
Everything you need to set up your defNder, including the helmet anchors, is included in the MSRP of $549.99 (excluding tax and shipping). It comes with a simple-to-follow instruction/owner’s manual, a baseball cap, decals for your race car, and is all contained in environmentally friendly packaging.
G-Force Racing Gear offers a complete line of racing belts in Latch & Link, or camlock design that are sold in five-point or six-point configurations. They offer dual ratings for both SFI-16.1 and FIA. All belts are sold by G-Force Racing Gear Dealers starting at $149.99.
Features include pull-down lap and shoulder adjustment. Belts come with bolt-in hardware, but can be used as wrap-around or used with optional snap-in hardware.
G-Force Racing is also proud to offer a re-webbing program for both the Latch & Link and the camlock-designed systems. When you send back your outdated G-Force Racing Gear harness set, all hardware is thoroughly checked for wear and replaced if necessary. Then all webbing is removed, discarded, and replaced with brand-new G-Force Racing Gear webbing. All appropriate FIA and SFI labels are attached and the rebuilt belt system will be shipped directly to you. This program takes two to three weeks and costs $54.99 plus shipping for the Latch & Link, and $109.99 plus shipping for the camlock system.
