The LSL Crash PadsÂ® are designed to absorb and dissipate impacts.
The plastic insert deforms on impact thereby improving protection. Its arched shape acts like a skid to guide the direction of a slide. By better absorption of the energy of a crash, the new impact pads also reduce potential damage to the brackets and fasteners. This means that after a low-speed crash only the plastic insert may need replacing. As LSL has done before, the shell is machined from billet aluminum. The new rounded shape prevents the slider from hooking into the track or road surface. The fastening system matches all existing brackets making for an easy upgrade. â€¨Available in a wide range of colors. Pricing starts at $69.95.
LSL's "Crash Pad" mounting kits are CNC machined from aircraft grade billet aluminum. These mount kits are developed for the specific needs of each model. For example the 03 GSXR1000 mount kit, (pictured right) was developed in conjunction with Suzuki Germany, under racing conditions, to reinforce the frame (at the motor mount) to prevent frame damage in the event of a crash.
Check out the LSL Crash Pad Stress Test 3D Simulation. This simulation shows how the pad insert flexes under impact. The flex of the insert reduces the forces on the mounting brackets and your frame. Incident records of many years confirm this function.
