HANS SLIDING TETHER GAINS MORE INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION
Atlanta, Georgia (January 22, 2009) - Australian, German, French and Mexican patent offices have formally registered HANS Performance Products' sliding tether design. Know as Vision Advantage PLUS', the system gives HANS Device users an unrivalled range of unlimited vision. Registration formally recognizes the uniqueness of the design.
CEO Mark Stiles said, "We knew the Vision Advantage PLUS sliding tether system was special. It is very gratifying that more and more patent offices around the world are validating our design."
The Vision Advantage PLUS sliding tether system permits improvements in left and right visibility by allowing easy but controlled rotation of a racer's helmet. The result is over four times the field of view versus competing head and neck restraints.
Since being introduced over a year ago, more and more HANS Devices have been specified with Vision Advantage PLUS. Circle track and drag racers alike have recognized that they can get class leading head and neck restraint performance without compromising on lateral vision.
Mark Stiles added, "Bracket racers in particular like the results they get from the combination of proven HANS Device performance and unrestricted side-to-side vision. It helps them win."
The HANS Device is worn by more than 75,000 racers worldwide and continues to be the #1 choice for performance, #1 for vision and #1 for winners.
