Dealer Expo Spotlight: Houser Racing Suspension Nerf Bars
Houser Racing unveiled an entirely new lineup of aluminum accessories at the Indy Dealer Expo. Perhaps the most popular ATV-related product of the entire show is Houser’s new “Suspension” Nerf Bars.
The most groundbreaking part of these nerf bars is the foot peg, which is where the “suspension” comes from. It works similar to a swing arm with a rubber isolated pivot point and replaceable cushion ball that is pre-load adjustable. The pegs are made of TIG welded Chromoly with end caps that are attached with air craft grade rivets. We can’t say enough how cool we think this peg is and how popular we think this nerf bar system is going to be.
The nerf bars feature large diameter tubing attached to the frame using a Chromoly Pro Peg design and aluminum mounting clamps or Chromoly front mounts. The netted heel guards are attached to the factory frame or sub frame points without modifications with Chromoly or rubber isolation mounts depending on the model of the ATV. The nerf bars have a slightly raised, up-swept design that Houser Racing says will help keep competitor’s tires from getting under the rider’s legs.
The entire system retails for $399.99, but Houser Racing will soon be offering just the pegs and heel guards for riders who don’t like to run full nerf bars.
One more item from Houser we were impressed with is its new aluminum rear grab bar. Obviously there’s not too much to rave about when it comes to a grab bar, but Houser did come up with a unique innovation. The bar is angled down, which is designed to make it easier for a rider to lift an ATV out of a tight spot.
