AltRider Crash Bars are known for the center connector which ties the two bar halves together to distribute the load from a crash evenly to both sides of the bike rather than being directed to just one side. This approach dramatically increases the chances of surviving a crash with little to no damage. With the S1000XR, AltRider went a step further by adding a second crossover. Now there is one point low in front of the engine, and a second point high under the beak designed to transfer impact load. This is the only design on the market that can provide real protection in a crash or tip over. Multiple connection points, wider coverage from top to bottom of the bike, and maximum load deflection allows the AltRider bar design to fit closely to the frame of the bike. This keeps the bike’s profile narrow and prevents any loss of cornering clearance.
The bottom of a motorcycle is the most susceptible to hits from curbs, rocks, debris, and nearly everything else and needs the most solid protection. AltRider has brought together a smart design leveraging knowledge from their long list of existing skid plates as well as addressing the challenges the XR presents in terms of its frame and low clearance. AltRider added new and innovative features to bring forth their best skid plate yet. Constructed of 3.175 mm (1/8”) lightweight aluminum, it provides the most coverage on the market without adding excessive weight to your bike. The slightly tapered and rib-cage-like design protects the engine vitals without interfering with a rider’s mobility or controls. Full coverage from front to back means the bike is protected against any debris kicked up by the front tire.
Whereas a solid skid plate would bottle in heat, the AltRider Skid Plate has strategically placed cut-outs to allow maximum air flow and heat dissipation without compromising protection.
Modular Powder-Coated Steel Mounting Brackets are utilized to connect the skid plate and crash bars to create one solid protection package. A cross tube connects the brackets which provides unparalleled strength and is the backbone to creating such a unique and complete system. This design feature was necessary due to the low clearance and aluminum frame on the XR and the AltRider system is the only one on the market to utilize this.
