Features:

  • Polyester webbing for exceptional strength

  • Dropped forged alloy steel with cadmium plated

  • Adjuster includes anti-slip springs

  • Floor-mount, bolt-in or wrap around style available

  • Available with pad

  • Webbing size: 3×3, 2 ¼x3, 2¼x2¼, 2×2 ”

  • Colors:  Black, Blue, Red, Platinum

Why Polyester?

In independent testing, nylon belts have been shown to stretch during resistance and loose strength when exposed to rain, sweat or any liquid.  Polyester belts are superior to nylon at absorbing energy during a crash test. In other words, they stretch less, keeping you away from the steering wheel and tightly in your seat. Affect of exposure to liquids is also minimal. Polyester webbing’s resistance to the elements is critical in off-road racing where conditions are often extreme and less controlled.
