The preferred landing system currently used for the Motocross Industry is a foam pit, which has serious shortcomings.
Hot bikes land in foam rubber and sooner or later there’s going to be a fire. There’s no such problem with a Zero Shock™ air Bag system. The bike stays on top of the top sheet and the worst it will do if the exhaust lies on the fabric for a while is to melt the PVC. A bit of glue and a patch will fix it in five minutes. If it starts looking a bit patchy after a while – a new top sheet costs peanuts and is replaced in about one hour.
Getting out of a foam pit with a bike is extremely difficult. Even getting out without a bike is extremely difficult! No such problem with the Zero Shock™ air bag system. Everything stays on the top sheet and you simply slide off.
The foam rubber deteriorates very rapidly in UV exposure and has to be replaced often at huge expense. And the job of replacing it requires a bio-hazard suit! It’s a mess! No such problem with the Zero Shock™ air bag systems. The PVC is made to resist UV and the structure will last a minimum of six years in the hot sun – more in temperate climates.
It stays where you build it which means that you do not have the ability to practice prior to important shows.
Zero Shock™ air bag systems are fully transportable which means that you would be able to erect it for practice prior to important events and then roll it up and stow in the back of a truck.
The Foam Pit Works
How Our Product Works
Greater Versatility /
ZS air bags can be created in any shape. Whether you need a 6' (2m) -wide bag that snakes between objects or terrain, it's not a problem, as any part of the bag is safe to land on. In addition, the top surface can undulate to create any shape or profile.
Pressure within the air bag can be regulated, from being as soft as a foam pit to being so firm that a bike can land on it and still be effective. This makes it the only choice as a substitute for foam pits for gymnastics and extreme sports.
ZS air bags can be extremely small, both in footprint and height, because the 'fingers' behave like shock absorbers. This makes them perfect for areas where normally a large foam pit would be used, especially in gymnastic applications.
Not only are ZS air bags softer to land on – you can also land anywhere on the bag – right up to the very edge! – Without being bounced off. Our patented design allows for a body to 'krush' the fingers upon impact, which forms around the body to cradle the impact.
Zero Shock™ Air Bags reset instantly! Only a small amount of air is expelled through the 'fingers' directly underneath the impacting body and the system has reset itself even before the person has climbed off of the bag. This means another body can land on the bag while the first body is still on it.
More than one person can land on the bag at the same time with almost no effect in the quality of the landing and no tendency for one person to bounce the other one off of the bag. Depending on the height of the fall, they can be as close as 24" apart and still be safe.
