Mooresville, NC (PRWEB) December 20, 2005
The WKA and IKF Go-Karting associations have banded together to develop the SFI 20.1 certification that will keep younger drivers as safe as possible. This new rule takes place in 2006 and requires that children who race (ages five to eleven) wear a chest protector.
LFT Technologies, Inc., a privately-held corporation in Mooresville, NC, has released the new Top Dog Carbon Fiber Chest Protector for the child safety industry. After years of research and hundreds of sled tests, in both the professional racing industry as well as the automotive industry, LFT Technologies Inc.’s President Trevor Ashline was able to provide another safety solution to keep drivers safe without the loss of the racers’ competitive edge.
“While developing for the head and neck safety industry, we could not help but discover new solutions for other vulnerable parts of the driver,” stated LFT Technologies Inc.’s President. “We took the data and built the first patent-pending carbon fiber chest protector, and we found that the carbon fiber design far surpasses the plastic models.”
The Top Dog Chest Protector was designed to protect children in racing and all sports that are chest vulnerable. This device is SFI 20.1-approved and it will help keep younger racers protected without loosing comfort in the safety device. “With drivers starting at younger ages, there is a need for chest protection,” Ashline adds. “The vision of LFT Technologies is to fill that need and provide safety solutions for all drivers.”
The Top Dog is now available, and just in time for Christmas. For more information on this and other safety solutions designed for all ages, you can call 1-800-731-4404 or visit http://www.LFTTECH.com.
