Superlight kit for Husqvarna 701 / KTM 690 / GasGas ES 700
The screen, which has been in the works for the last 24 months is a one-piece design made from high quality PET material. It is so flexible that you can press it flat on the floor without breaking it. We firmly believe that an off road screen should not break or create sharp edges, keeping you safer while traveling/racing. The flip up design is compact, yet efficient in directing the air off your chest, allowing you to ride more comfortably for longer periods.
Screen Safety System (S3)
We’ve been involved in rally racing since 2013 and have been studying the mechanics of crashes both during traveling and racing. During sudden changes in the terrain, it is well known that the screen can hit the rider on the helmet or on the throat, causing serious damage. With safety in mind, Aurora Rally Equipment is introducing a patent pending design that will allow the screen to move away from the rider in case of a hard impact. Depending on the settings chosen, the screen will move forward and in case of a high impact crash, it will detach from its pin to minimise the forces transferred to the rider. The system is designed so that the screen brackets will slide automatically (depending on the installation procedure) or the user can have predefined positions according to their needs.
The Superlight kit is designed to allow you to enjoy your bike with minimum interference and maximum ease of use. Choose a simple setup, with only two RAM® balls and add your favorite digital device, or start building your own cockpit by adding a series of add-ons to further personalise your tower. Dedicated back plates exist to add GPS devices, solar powered battery packs, rain gear, medical kits, light tools or full navigation roadbook setups for those long races in the dunes!
Aurora Rally Equipment is always pushing the boundaries of design and manufacturing. The tower is manufactured using a 3Axis milling machine pushed to its limits. The thickness of the tower plates is continuously changing on both sides to optimise its strength and stiffness. The 3D printed air scoop is printed using special methods and the part is UV-post cured to improve its mechanical properties. Nothing is left to chance.
The air scoop under the tower is a one-piece design, made from high impact resistance resin, specifically manufactured for outdoor applications. In this tower it serves as a cable protective cover and can be removed by undoing four bolts to access all the cables that are hidden in the front of the bike. Exposing the cables to the environment is something that we get a lot of questions. This is done widely on the bike industry. Connectors are all over our bikes, and some of them are exposed to the environment. The idea is to be able to quickly trace errors and get back on your way. So rather than closing the cables inside the tower, and then having the rider to undo the whole tower to access that loose connector, the Superlight tower takes it a step further and allows you to access the cabling quicker, minimising any potential errors.
It is inevitable.
The screen brackets are made from stainless steel that can bend when crashed, while the 3-point mounting system will allow the screen to rotate to absorb part of the impact. By making the tower smaller, and positioning it closer to the bike, the chances of touching the ground are minimised. Further to that, any added brackets on the top of the tower are manufactured using materials that will absorb energy (special aluminium alloy, stainless steel, polymers, rubber dampers) so that your equipment, analogue or digital is protected.
The main parts of the aluminium tower weight just 840grams! This is the lightest 3D CNC tower that has been out of our factory. The development is based on millions of fatigue data that have been gathered throughout the years. It is light, yet structurally stable and its centre of gravity is even closer to the headstock of the bike compared to our other designs, hence the riders will not even feel that a navigation tower is added there.
Let there be light!
There are different needs depending to where a bike is ridden. Sometimes our bikes are used to commute, so there is a need for fully legal, approved headlights, but sometimes the bikes are loaded on our trailers and get to races where lighting is paramount. The advanced lighting bracketing system will allow you to swap lighting setups in 5 minutes tops! Choose from up to 7 combinations of lights using street legal LED lights from Hella® (the same lights used in the KTM® Rally factory bike ) or combine them with a Baja Designs® Squadron (Sport or Pro), go for two Baja Squadron Pros if you want maximum performance or use one Dual4 LED with a low and a high beam feature. Have the second setup ready in your garage and install it for that quick night trip in the trails. Travel further, safer.
The legendary head clamp!
The most important part. If this part fails, no matter how good the rest of the structure is, it will fall on the ground taking with it all the electrics of the bike. This is the foundation of your kit. Since 2016 Aurora Rally Equipment is proud to have zero head clamp failures in all the environments and conditions. Racing, Traveling, Commuting. Our data show that there is no difference between racing and traveling as far as the damage that one can inflict to these parts. To the contrary, there is proof that amateur riders, sometimes, cause more harm to the equipment than the pro riders. The clamp is machined out a solid block of aluminium with special spacers and a chro-moly U-bolt designed and manufactured specifically for that purpose. It is warrantied for life, as all our frame clamps.
