HANDLEBAR CONTROLLER

Bluetooth handlebar controller to navigate the mobile device while riding.

To assist adventure bike riders with scrolling a mobile device while riding, for either a map or electronic roadbook, we offer an in-house designed handlebar controller that connects with your mobile device using Bluetooth.

RALLY TOWERS

Rally towers for KTM and Husqvarna bikes for extra wind and equipment protection.

We have designed our own rally tower for KTM bikes that can assist with the wind while travelling, as well as offer protection for your navigation equipment, mounted on your bike. A rally tower is not compulsory to ride events, but it does make your life a lot easier as a bike pilot.

Let’s get you going with mobile navigation and navigation rally riding.

We will show you how to use a mobile device or tablet for all adventure bike navigation needs.

What is ‘rally without the race’?

  • A format of participating in rally-style events without racing, using an adventure bike.
  • Aimed more at small capacity adventure bikes due to the nature of the routes.
  • This format of riding is affordable, available and opens the typical rally experience to the rider coming from adventure riding.
  • It’s for someone that has progressed through various types of adventure bike riding experiences and now find themselves wanting more from their bikes and riding events.
  • Especially if you have riding experience and the bike to match. Time to put that KTM890 and your navigation experience to the test.
  • For riders that want to experience rally stage events, but not necessarily racing or professional event participation.

Why focus on navigation & rally?

  • There is possibly to much focus on skill, speed or just socialising in current adventure riding.
  • You most probably have an interest in events such as Dakar, but your closest experience is taking your adventure bike out on a weekend, or riding a GPS route on an annual social event.
  • The key to unlocking a more adventurous riding experience is adding in proper navigation.
