FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

RIDGE RUNNER OF IDAHO INTRODUCES NEW TWO SEAT ROUGH TERRAIN VEHICLE (RTV)

A totally new concept in design, the Ridge Runner takes ATV technology to a more versatile level.Nampa, ID – Call it a Ridge Runner and watch it run circles around traditional ATVs and Quads. The manufacturers say the new Ridge Runner will go faster, climb steeper hills, clear higher objects, go farther into the back country, and allow drivers to pack in/pack out a lot more supplies for hunting, fishing or camping.

Ridge Runners have 18” of ground clearance and 13.5” of suspension travel, more than any ATV, Quad, Hummer or Jeep. They have four wheel independent suspension, with Fox Racing air shocks, allowing them to traverse very rough terrain, with hardly any perceptible motion in the frame. This also allows swift, comfortable passage over boulder fields or logs that could only be dreamed about with a traditional ATV. Directional control is easy with the rack and pinion steering, as opposed to handlebars that can be jerked out of a driver’s hands or bent
if a Quad is rolled.
 

The steel tube frame provides a strong, protective environment around the driver and passenger. There are no plastic body parts that will need replacing.

At the same time, the engineers at Ridge Runner have designed ina number of safety features that do not distract from the thrills and excitement of running wild with the wind. There are two, side-by-side seats, allowing adults to legally bring one of their kids along. Nervous spouses prefer riding in the Ridge Runner’s protected passenger seat rather than wrestling with an ATV handlebar. Dual seatbelts with double shoulder harnesses, along with roll bars, reduce the risk of injury. The car’s lower center of gravity and longer/wider wheel base significantly limits the risk of rollover.

A Ridge Runner can be transported in the back of a standard pickup.

The Ridge Runner is powered by a twin cylinder, 697cc, four-stroke engine with an automatic transmission. Equipped with a high and low range transfer case, that includes park and reverse, this two seat RTV is capable of high speeds on smooth roads. “It isn’t speed that’s going to sell Ridge Runners,” said company president Dan Denney. “It’s the maneuverability, the sheer fun of enjoying performance that loosens the limits of off-road driving. What a Ridge Runner might do to a weekend really challenges the imagination. The main thing is, at the end of the day anyone who’s been riding one will feel an incredible sense of exhilaration.”

For a limited time, the Ridge Runners are being sold factory-direct at a special introductory price of $14,500, plus shipping. For more information visit http://www.RidgeRunner.biz/ or phone (208) 463-4411.
