Harnesses

103-A115231The stock safety belts work fine but there are better options that provide a safer and more comfortable ride. For example, the Pro Armor 5 Point Seat Belt Harness is a race-grade safety harness that features wide shoulder and lap straps with a heavy-duty, latch-style closure system. The H-style harness ensures a snug fit with easy adjustment and a sternum strap to keep the shoulder harnesses from sliding apart. Comfort is provided with the pads in the shoulder and chest area. A very handy and unique feature is that this harness has a water resistant cell phone pocket with a Velcro flap over the left pectoral area to keep your phone within reach in case of an emergency. Additionally, the harness comes with an LED light that can be stored in the opposite mesh pocket.

Quick Release Steering Wheel

DFR-04-1000Most UTVs don’t have fancy alarm systems to protect them from driving away in the in wrong hands. One way to help keep those with sticky fingers from taking a UTV for a midnight joy ride is a quick release steering wheel.

You can choose from different offsets, D shape steering wheels, as well as suede or vinyl covered UTV steering wheels. The Dragonfire Racing Sport Steering Wheel Kit comes with a steering wheel with a 2-1/2” offset which brings the steering wheel more than 2” closer to the driver (good for those with T-Rex arms). To go along with the quick release steering wheel this kit also comes with a Quick Release Billet Steering Wheel Hub and a Spline Adapter.
