Innovators i4invention introduce CORE HEAT MOTO at the MCN London Motorcycle Show

Visitors to the MCN Motorcycle Show were fighting for a view of the new Tyre Warmer which heats from the inside out ! FabRoc® polymer heating technology is used for the in-rim system which uses a uniquely powerful combination of conductive, convective and infrared heating. Road and Race versions will shortly be available offering increased safety through the depth and range of the CORE HEAT system providing improved grip in wet and cold conditions, improved cornering and braking  plus the vital added benefit of a longer lasting effect due to the heat permeating the entire tyre plus warmth retained and fed into the extended grip by the tyre rim. Enquiries can be sent to Steve Slough (steveslough@i4invention.co.uk) and please click here to see the CORE HEAT MOTO system in more detail.

MCN awards StormRider 5 STARS after 3 months test

Senior Motorcycle News road tester Michael Neeves has awarded our StormRider Heated Bodywarmer the full 5 out of 5 rating after a rigorous three month trial. He states "This bodywarmer keeps you warm before you 've even heated it up, which is a good sign". He goes on to highlight the constant 50 Degree Celsius temperature output delivered across the entire garment, along with the battery pack for use off the bike, as key benefits to the user.

HEAT THE PERSON - NOT THE ENVIRONMENT

White Dalton Motorcycle Solicitors senior partner Andrew Dalton has taken his enthusiasm for our FabRoc® heating technology to the next stage. He states : "We bought the Stormrider's for all of our motorcycle riding lawyers who took to wearing them in our listed building offices which are close to impossible to heat on really cold days, especially with a north or easterly wind. Our non riding staff asked for them and even in the fairly mild winter of 2011/12 these were popular and well used. It has been much more economical warming the body rather than a draughty 1920's listed building which has been impossible to heat. For employers in cold or large environments like warehouses, these jackets really cost pennies to run and keep the core of the body warm. They don't bulk up workers and are comfortable. I started using them by accident, but I would wholeheartedly recommend them for employers who need to heat people cheaply and effectively rather than large areas of air expensively." With todays energy costs heading for the stratosphere here is a great idea for heating what really matters - people, rather than the entire space we occupy !

ANDES MOTO EXTREME - GUINNESS WORLD RECORD FOR MOTORCYCLE ALTITUDE

From top to bottom opposite are Luke Matzinger, Walter Colebatch and Barton Churchill, the Extreme-Team. We know Walter from sponsoring his Sibersky Extreme Project and were delighted to do so again for this new adventure. Walter was asked recently for his reasoning in selecting EXO2 as his preferred heating equipment partner : "Why?  EXO2 make the heated clothing that provides the most heat for the lowest power draw of anyone in the world.  Temperatures near the peaks of the Andes, even in summer can get down to -25C (-13F) so we wanted the finest heated clothing we could lay our hands on."  Here is what he has told us about the team's world record attempt :

Outline:
The current world record - as recognised by Guinness World Records - is 6245 metres (20,489 feet), set by a group of Indian bikers in the Himalaya. We will exceed that altitude by using modern fuel injected dirt bikes, the best equipment available, and a team with significant world adventure riding and mountaineering experience. We will break the Guinness World Record for motorcycle altitude in March – April 2012.

Location:
Ojos del Salado - the worlds highest volcano, and South America’s second highest mountain. Our research indicates Ojos del Salado (6893m / 22,615 feet) is the most favourable location in the world for a motorcycle altitude attempt. Ojos del Salado offers us access to approximately 5800 metres (19,000 feet) along trails before the real cross country challenge begins. From this elevation we will encounter extreme technical terrain including multiple
glacier crossings, boulder fields, volcanic scree and moraine, very steep slopes and vertical steps. At these altitudes, with oxygen levels less than 45% of sea level, walking, breathing and mental function become a formidable challenge. In this environment, altitude, wind, and sub freezing temperatures can prove fatal. Rescue at these altitudes is nearly out of the question.

FabRoc® heating technology used in Research for Manned Mission to Mars

Dr Alexander Kumar, is a 28 year old British doctor, a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and member of the Explorer's Club. he has worked and travelled in over 60 countries, and has spent a great deal of time in the Arctic. Having taken time out of Anaesthetics and Acute Care training in Oxford, he is now living for 1 year, isolated in the most extreme environment on Earth- at the joint French-Italian Research station, Concordia located in Antarctica.

The group lives at around 4000 metres equivalent altitude there and so breathe one third less oxygen pressure than is available at sea level, in London. And with winter coming shortly they will endure 4 months of 24 hour (complete) darkness where temperatures drop to minus 80 degrees Celcius (without windchill) - the coldest on Earth. They are more isolated than the International Space Station - in a case of emergency there is no opportunity for evacuation from February to November 2012. EXO2 FabRoc® heating technology in his clothing will help Alex to survive at almost unimaginably cold temperatures.

Alex is the only British member, living within a group of 13 other Europeans scientists- where they have interesting science ongoing on meteorology, astronomy, glaciology and more.

As the Research MD, Alex is responsible for conducting human spaceflight research for the European Space Agency - looking at how far we can push human psychology and physiology towards a manned mission to Mars.

Arctic Dog Sled Challenge at -32 degrees Celsius

67 year old charity campaigner Anne Mawdsley MBE, Chief Executive of the UK based Raynaud's & Scleroderma Association, has undertaken her most courageous challenge yet. Driving a team of huskies with colleague Jo Kaddish around the fringes of the arctic circle whilst coping with severe Raynaud's - a condition caused by changes in temperature which prevent the blood supply from reaching the extremities. EXO² donated a heated gilet for Anne to use which she told us : ' worked a treat. I was really warm bodily even though the temperature on Tuesday night was the coldest of the winter at minus 38 and when we set out it was minus 32 degrees C ! The tears on my cheeks turned to icicles !' The challenge has raised a further £27,000 for research into Raynaud's and Scleroderma ; you can find out more about this condition at the Associations website www.raynauds.org.uk

Boundary 500 motorcycle group helps keep Great North Air Ambulance in flight

Brian Laverick and friends love their motorcycles and are putting them to the best possible use in regularly touring the 500 or so miles covered by the Great North Air Ambulance to raise funds for a vital service which receives no government funding whatsoever. Amongst their eager and loyal band you will find several members of the Cleveland Police Road Policing Unit - three of them are fronting the image you can click on beside this article to view in more detail. If they appear to be smiling it could be because their StormRider Bodywarmers are taking the pain out of long distance biking ; Bikesafe Co-ordinator at Cleveland, PC Steve Darby, has said that all the guys have been impressed whether using the StormRiders linked directly to their motorcycle battery or alternatively via the portable power pack when they are attending incidents in all weather conditions over a period of several hours ; indeed one comment being 'best bit of kit we have ever had'.

Superbikers do it in StormRider !

EXO²'s heated waistcoats proved invaluable at Donington Park for the Superbike World Championship on the 1st April 2007.

Although sunny, a freezing wind blew across the circuit and riders and support teams were really feeling the cold.

Cregan Boyd, the Director of Trackcare International Racetrack Safety, was glad of his EXO² waistcoat as he stood in the bitter cold monitoring the safety of the riders.

The Honda Ekerold British Supersport Managing Director, Gary Ekerold, also had his team wearing EXO² waistcoats. Not only did they keep them warm but also they looked superb with Honda Ekerold's red and black branding. The Honda Ekerold Team will be wearing EXO² gear for the remainder of the season.

Race 1 of the Superbike World championship was won by James Toseland and Noriyuki Haga could only manage a fourth position. The word went out that Haga was freezing cold and his team manager sent out for a heater/blower to warm him up.

Cregan Boyd also got the message about Haga and bravely lent his EXO² waistcoat to him in between Race 1 and 2. Haga was a different man in Race 2 ( In fact he was " On Fire " ) and the Eurosport commentators were asking what it was that had made such a difference between Race 1 and 2 ?? Haga finally won a thrilling battle with Biaggi on the last bend. EXO² are in discussion with Haga's Yamaha team over the supply of EXO² waistcoats for the season.

EXO² firmly believes that it's heated clothing systems help top sportspeople operate at peak performance and the Superbike World Championships was a great example of EXO² helping to achieve this.

EXO² will be at Brands Hatch for the Bennetts British Superbike Championship helping the Ducati Airwaves Superbike team and the Centurion Racing British Supersport team to name just two.

StormRider in use by Grace Spitfire pilot!

It can get pretty cold on those flights in aircraft which do not enjoy the heating systems available on passenger jets..what better than our StormRider heated vest, taking its power from the Stampe open cockpit biplane engine, used by Carolyn Grace throughout the winter (whilst the Spitfire is in winter maintenance), and warming the whole upper body of the pilot in-flight. Flying through the winter seems less of a chilling thought, with the core body warmed, senses are alert and, as so often, comfort and safety go hand in hand. 

 "Using this heated vest has revolutionised my winter flying in the biplane" says Carolyn, who flies the Stampe all year round as a training top up for her display flying.

 The Grace Spitfire is an aeroplane with a great history, with a very competent pilot in Carolyn Grace. Carolyn is the only current female Spitfire pilot in the world, and has been flying the Spitfire since 1990. In this time she has amassed a great deal of hours and experience. The Grace Spitfire is available for displays - please click on the link to learn more - www.ml407.co.uk
