POLARIS TAKES SAFETY TECHNOLOGY TO THE NEXT LEVEL | News | Technology
Polaris offers 30 models with certified Roll Over Protection Structures (ROPS) and credits safety technology as one of the key factors in the outstanding growth of their business.
The Polaris Ranger line-up offers features and capabilities which are important to Australian farmers combined with safety technology such as certified ROPS, speed key, seat belt interlock, side nets and Active Descent Control (ADC).
Polaris even takes safety technology to the next level with the Ranger 150 which is a Polaris youth model. The RANGER® 150 is a one of a kind youth model for riders 10 years and older, as it features rider-safety technology designed for parents’ peace of mind while letting youth riders experience the fun of driving their own vehicle. Driven by Polaris’ RIDE COMMAND™ technology, new safety features include geofencing, digital speed limiting, and passcode protected safe start, which can all be controlled from parents’ smartphones.
Polaris seeks to create an environment for kids to have fun, learn and gain experience in driving off-road vehicles and to do this as safely as possible. The RANGER 150 is designed to give RANGER-loving families a way to extend their passion of driving off-road vehicles to the next generation and make riding a family adventure.
Using the RIDE COMMAND app and the vehicle’s digital display, adults can set riding boundaries for kids using the geofencing feature. Additionally, the digital speed limiting feature allows parents to determine speed limits both within and outside of the pre-established riding areas, helping ensure that kids are riding at the appropriate speed for their age, experience and terrain. The RANGER 150 passcode protected safe start system controls who is operating the vehicle, and when it’s operated. Equipped with a seatbelt interlocking system, the vehicle limits max speed to 9.7 kph until the seat belt is engaged. Additional features include a high visibility flag, two helmets, a protective cage, safety nets and LED daytime-running lights and taillights.
Available in sage green, the RANGER 150 offers seating for two and is powered by an electronic fuel-injected 150cc engine giving youth riders aged 10 and up the fun of driving their own off-road vehicle. Tilt steering and a 14.5-cm seat slider provide adjustability for growing riders, while the 20.3-cm ground clearance and 22-inch all-terrain tires help navigate tough terrain. The RANGER 150 boasts 22.7-kg rear box capacity and offers roof, full and half windshield as well as front and rear bumper as accessory options.
