An unprotected wall in an impact zone is an unprotected rider, plain and simple.

The Evo System in detail

So what’s an Airfence Bike Evo - High Safety System?

Anyone can chuck a few foam blocks or straw bales on a wall, but no one believes that’s safe any more. The Airfence Bike Evo - High, a fully ENGINEERED SAFETY SYSTEM, is designed with enhanced features to maximize the opportunity for safe deceleration of a fallen rider. The evolution of design is based on our experience in non-inflatable motorcycle safety barriers which started in 1998.

Airfence Bike Evo - High Safety Systems:
  • Come in individual sections with an internal foam frame and an extremely strong, reinforced PVC fabric cover.
  • Come in sections of two sizes: Evo - High 2 x 1.2 x 1.25m (6.5x4x4.1ft) (LxWxH) and Evo 2 x 1.2 x 1.05m (6.5x4x3.3ft) for protecting low walls.
  • Sections are strapped together by 5 seat-belt webbing and double stainless steel D-ring assemblies forming a seamless soft-wall bank of protection of any desired length.
  • Being light and easily joined and disconnected, they are simple to deploy and remove, protecting the Airfence during non-motorcycle use of the track.

Other New features include:
  • Two optional heights of 1.05m (3ft 4in) and 1.2m (4ft 2in) so you can choose the height you need.
  • New extra thickness—now 1.2m (4ft) to allow greater absorption of impact energy though a larger air cell prior to compression.
  • New foam inside to make for a more robust frame.
  • Sand tubes in sleeves at the bottom of the front stabilize the barrier in high wind and assist in lifting a sliding rider into the barrier, not under it.
Airfence Bike Evo or Airfence Bike Evo High?

What do you need to protect? Does the 1050mm (3.3ft) height of the standard Airfence Bike Evo completely protect riders from the barrier behind including extra height to allow for a tumbling rider compressing the top of the Airfence? If yes, choose it. If not, choose Airfence Bike Evo –High and get that full 1.25m (4.1ft) of protection. Sometimes steel armco type walls are lower and can the lower Airfence Bike Evo. Concrete can be any height, so might use either type and tyre walls are typically 5 tyres high and need Airfence Bike Evo—High.

Comprehensive soft-wall safety for bike riders on an impact zone wall. Airfence Bike Evo -High is for your facility if:
  • Safety is your priority and want the best
  • Have bikes on your track regularly
  • Need ease of handling, quick installation and removal to save worker hours.
  • Want the extra reliability offered by Airfence Bike during events
