SFI 16.6 is the latest seat belt standard that went into effect in 2015. For the 2016 racing season, SFI 16.6 specification belts will be mandatory for NASCAR Sprint Cup and Xfinity series with the NASCAR Truck series mandating SFI 16.6 belts for the 2017 season. The new SFI 16.6 specification adds additional safety standards to the already very stringent SFI 16.5 standards. The biggest change required in SFI 16.6 versus SFI 16.5 is the addition of a mandatory Negative G belt, making all belts e
The patented SCHROTH RFR™ rotary (cam lock) buckle operates with a carbon fiber reinforced gear system. Since it operates grease free it is insensitive to dust and other environmental influences. RFR™ the abbreviation for Regressive Force Release, means the release force is reduced during release operation rather than increasing as seen with all other rotary buckle products. Therefore the RFR™ buckle meets the stringent FIA required release forces without the need of an extended lever.
Outlast® technology was originally developed for NASA to protect astronauts from temperature fluctuations. The temperature corridor within which the human body feels comfortable is relatively narrow. Outlast® technology helps to smooth changes in temperature within this corridor, maintaining a more consistent temperature range.
Outlast microcapsules use phase change molecules to absorb excess heat, providing a cooling system. This heat is stored
