A Palm City, Fla. company has introduced a new device that will make your medical history easy to access for emergency personnel in case you get hurt while out on your ATV or other powersports vehicle.
Connectyx Technologies Corp. created MedFlash, which is a simple USB storage device that can be attached to a keychain. Should you suffer a medical emergency on or off the trails, emergency personnel can access your information by plugging the Med Flash into a USB port and viewing your emergency data file.
“I think what sets the MedFlash apart from the other personal medical devices is that it’s a web portal,” Connectyx director of marketing Lisa Merkow told ATV.com. ”You can sync your MedFlash device with the web portal and upload and download the data so it’s always correct.”
Ride off-road long enough and you are bound to damage your CV boot, which can lead to serious axle damage if you don’t take care of it quickly.
Rather than let the dirt or sand destroy your CV joint, the QuadBoss Rapid Repair CV Boot Kit’s cone shaped tool lets you slip a new boot onto your axle and seal it back up without having to pull your axle off. The faster you replace the boot, the less damage is done to the joint.
One of the great things about walking the floor at a show like AIMExpo in Orlando, Fla. is checking out innovative products that could help a lot of people. The Shark Kage multi-use ramp falls into that category.
When we first walked by the Shark Kage booth, we didn’t think much of it. It just looked like an ordinary ramp for a pickup truck. However, what we saw next stopped us in our tracks. The ramp was quickly folded up into a bed extender…then a work table. After talking to one of the Shark Kage representatives, we were told it could also turn into a tool box and cargo cover for your truck, as well as a sun shade.
Curtis Industries has announced the release of its new heavy-duty utility vehicle plow. The plow ships fully assembled to dealers to reduce installation time and cost.

It’s designed with a 48″ trip frame and heavy-duty springs to protect the plow and vehicle from ground obstructions.
MotoPumps has recently made available its new Mini Pro Tire Inflator – a compact, all-in-one, 12-volt-powered air pump designed specifically for UTVs, ATVs and motorcycles.
According to MotoPumps, the Mini Pro is lightweight and easy to use. It is designed to quickly air up tires or even top off suspension components.
Hornet Outdoors has created products for Polaris ATV and UTV owners looking to add more storage capacity. Hornet offers products that can more than double the storage capacity of some vehicles, as well as a host of other items to help you get the most out of your machine.
Hornet’s rear cargo racks and box side rails add storage space for campers, hunters, farmers and ranchers to pack more gear. With steel tubing, one-piece welded construction, powder coat finish and tool-less installation, you can carry just about anything with you. Prices start at $149 for Sportsman ATVs, $199 for the Sportsman ACE, $399 for the Ranger and $499 for the RZR.
Bungee cords have long been a staple of ATV and UTV riders for tying down anything and everything. One company has set out to improve on this old-school tie-down system – Lynx Hooks.
The Lynx Hooks tie-down system, which we saw at the Indianapolis Dealer Expo, utilizes patented interlocking Lynx Hooks. These hooks interlock in two different ways: face-to‐face or front‐to‐back, creating secure tie-downs that it says are fully adjustable, versatile, flexible, and significantly safer than traditional bungee cords.
“Lynx Hooks provide sports enthusiasts with the best light utility solution for securely strapping down their gear,” says Karen Hayes, a Founder and VP of Marketing and Communications at Lynx Hooks Systems. “Whether you need a custom cargo net or just a couple of straps to do the job, Lynx Hooks are the perfect tie-downs to have in your arsenal of accessories because they’re so versatile, so safe, and so secure. Once you try Lynx Hooks, you’ll never go back to using old fashioned, frustrating bungees.”
