FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

RIDGE RUNNER OF IDAHO DELIVERS ITS FIRST 800 EFI RUGGED TERRAIN VEHICLE

Ridge RunnerNampa, ID – The extra horsepower in an 800 EFI Ridge Runner makes a significant difference in some people’s minds. Though it adds $1,900 to the cost of a standard vehicle, the 800 series engine with electronic fuel injection, is simply a “must have” item for some people.

“The standard 700 carbureted engine has always delivered the kind of power that’s adequate for nearly all rugged terrain operations,” said Ridge Runner President Dan Denney. “In the back country there is simply nothing that will keep up with it. The clearance, suspension and power combination make it unbeatable.”

Ridge Runners have 18” of ground clearance and 13.5” of suspension travel, more than any ATV, Quad, Hummer or Jeep. This allows them to tackle boulders or logs that would flip an ATV or cause a jeep to hang up. They have four wheel independent suspension, with Fox Racing air shocks, allowing them to traverse rough terrain with minimal displacement of the frame. This assures swift, comfortable passage over rocky roads or log-strewn trails that could only be dreamed about with traditional ATVs.

Ridge Runner has delivered its first vehicle with an 800 EFI engine installed and more are The steel tube frame provides a strong, protective environment around the driver and passenger. There are no plastic body parts that will need replacing.

The engineers at Ridge Runner have designed in a number of safety features that do not distract from the thrills and excitement of running with the wind. There are two, side-by-side seats, allowing adults to legally bring one of their kids along. Spouses, who might hesitate to get on an ATV, 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 or on a trailer. They are ideal for Appalachian trails, Forest Service roads in Main, roads across Baja, on sand dunes or beaches anywhere. Depending on the choice of engines, Ridge Runners sell for $16,950, $17,952 and $18,908.
