Tire Protection Systems is proud to be a part of the new SRI EV1. The manufacturer of the widely acclaimed
and balancer line is proud to be associated with the first electric powered Full Scale off-road race car. The SRI EV1 is attracting attention as a potential major advance in green transportation, with a level of power and torque that is generating enormous excitement from the lucky few who have been able to drive one. Boasting a range that is rapidly heading to 100 miles, this amazing product of SRI (Strategic Recovery Institute) and electronic drive train manufacturers EV West was catalyzed by a challenge from the United State military. The mission: create an off-road racing vehicle that will eventually allow our armed forces to switch from internal combustion vehicles to electric power. As the innovative manufacturer of both Ride-On ATV Tire Sealant and the Ride-On Smart Cap
system, Ride-On is thrilled to be associated with this hugely exciting advance.
One player in the project is test driver
, the Director of Powersports for Ride-On TPS, and it's easy to see why he's excited to be involved. The move to create the SRI EV1 was not simply motivated by a desire to improve the ecology by lowering emissions, but was largely motivated by the need of the armed forces to conserve a precious resource: cold hard cash. America's taxpayers are currently paying a horrifying
per gallon of military gas. With hot swappable 230 volt battery packs and a 5 hour recharge time, the SRI EV1 is a possible game changer that may not only help rescue our endangered environment, but might also improve our nation's fiscal health.
Mr. Plewniak and the Ride-On staff are also excited that their company's tire protection systems may prove to be a major boon to this potentially game-changing vehicle. The benefits of a product such as Ride-On ATV Tire Sealant are obvious for a heavy duty vehicle such as the SRI EV1. The Ride-On Tire Protection System contains fibers that are several times stronger than the steel which coats the interior lining of tires. It is therefore able to stop sudden dangerous blow-outs and flats which are caused by punctures. At the same time, it helps tires to maintain the correct level of air pressure.
