Cycle Country Accessories Corp. Announces US Patent Office Issues Patent For Cycle Country X-Force All-Poly Blade

Cycle Country Accessories Corp. (AMEX:ATC) announced that the US Patent Office has issued a patent for the Company’s design for the industry’s first and only all-poly snow blade product line. Introduced initially at the 2009 Dealer Expo Show in Indianapolis, Cycle Country expanded its line of X-Force all-poly blades with three new blade sizes, including 60”, 66” and 72” wide blades, which were introduced at the 2010 Dealer Expo Show.

In addition to using the now-patented RibCore design, these new blades are 21” tall, which is 6” taller than typical steel blades sold today. The radius of the inside curve is also deeper than other powersport industry blades offered today. The deeper radius delivers excellent “snow rollover” performance, an industry measure of plow effectiveness and efficiency.

The X-Force blades are 30% lighter than comparably-sized steel blades. They do not require any steel frame reinforcement, and yet they have all of the equivalent strength and durability of steel blades. Because they are all-poly, they will not rust and can be recycled.

“We believe that the X-Force blade design offers Cycle Country a competitive advantage in the ATV/UTV Powersports market, and opens new opportunities in the Lawn Tractor and Zero Turn Radius Mower markets where a strong, but lightweight blade is beneficial for these typically lower-powered machines”, said Jeff Tetzlaff, President of Cycle Country. “Our X-Force blades will fit our existing mounting systems, so Cycle Country customers can upgrade to the new X-Force blades without changing their basic plow setups. All-poly is the next generation of plow blade design and this patent award recognizes Cycle Country’s continued position as the industry innovator.”
