Pioneering Safety

IMMI® had a blast at Camp RZR Brimstone. The Polaris event, held for their trail riders in Huntsville, Tennessee, had it all. Thousands of riders enjoyed nightly concerts, Polaris demos, competitions, and exceptional service. Polaris appreciates their riders and it shows with events like these. There was something for everyone, and IMMI was honored to join in the fun as a Polaris partner.

Picture 2What we enjoyed most was showing off our new Click6™ harness, and the reaction from riders was amazing. They loved how our harness gave them the protection they needed on the trails, but still allowed them freedom to move. Unlike other harnesses, the Click6 doesn’t strap you against the seat the moment you buckle up, making it hard for you to reach the dash or look out your door. You can move freely in the Click6 until you need it to keep you safe, and then it locks you securely in place. Easy to use, the Click6 offers six points of protection and one point of connection. When several riders confessed that they didn’t wear their seat belts as a general rule, but that they would wear the Click6 because it was so comfortable, that made our day.

Riders were impressed with how easy and fast it was to secure their Polaris with our product. With the money riders spend on their UTVs, they want the best tie-down available. And they found it to be CargoBuckle.

We’re grateful to Polaris for their increasing commitment to rider safety, and for inviting us to join them at Camp RZR East. A special thanks to all the riders and families that stopped by to experience the Click6. We had a great time talking to everyone, and we’re looking forward to meeting even more riders at Camp RZR West in Glamis, California from October 31-November 2. If you’re there, stop by and try out the Click6 for yourself. We’re giving away 1,000 t-shirts, so come by early before we run out!

UTV Safety

Posted on: April 22nd, 2014 by IMMI Outdoors Staff

One of the greatest things about the arrival of spring is getting outside again to enjoy the outdoors.  For the adventurers, like utility vehicle owners and riders, that means enjoying the terrain as you drive off road.

Of course, most of the UTVs these days are made to handle the toughest conditions, at a high rate of speed.  That’s why it’s more important than ever to remember to buckle up.  We found a fun video on YouTube that you’d enjoy comparing the safety equipment of two utility vehicles.  Of course, we recommend you always choose a vehicle with a seatbelt.  But, this is a funny way to compare the two.

Enjoy!

Hunting Wild Pheasant Thanksgiving Recipe

Posted on: November 26th, 2013 by IMMI Outdoors Staff No Comments

We don’t know about you, but we are planning on hunting for our Thanksgiving bird.  Here’s a great wild Pheasant recipe that we love from Honest-Food.net. If you try it out, let us know what you thought!

1 pheasant, plucked with skin on
1/4 cup Kosher salt
4 cups water
1/4 cup prickly pear syrup, or any other syrup (see above)
1 large sprig of sage (optional)
1 teaspoon cayenne powder
Ground black pepper
__________

  • Mix the salt and water together and whisk to dissolve the salt. When it is dissolved, pour it over the pheasant in a plastic or ceramic container, cover, and leave in the fridge for at least 4 hours, and up to 8 hours. Remove the pheasant and pat it dry. Let it rest on a cutting board while you preheat the oven to 450 degrees, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Put the sprig of sage into the pheasant’s cavity and dust the pheasant with cayenne pepper. Place the bird breast side down on a rack in a roasting pan. If you don’t have a proper rack, rig something up with halved onions, carrots or the like. Arrange potatoes around the pheasant, which serve as a good side dish.
  • Roast the pheasant for 15 minutes at 450 degrees, then drop the heat to 375 and roast for another 20 minutes. Turn the pheasant breast side up and baste with the syrup. Roast for another 30-40 minutes, basting twice in the first 20 minutes. Keep watching the glaze, and remove the pheasant immediately if it burns too much — expect some burning at the edges of the legs and wings.
  • When the pheasant is done (thigh should be 160 degrees when poked with a thermometer), remove to a cutting board and tent loosely with foil. Don’t mess with it for 10-15 minutes. To serve, carve the bird and grind some black pepper over it.

Andretti and Sites: Putting It to the Test

Posted on: October 25th, 2012 by desihal7

Recently professional race car driver John Andretti and I field-tested the new IMMI® three-point seat belt harness that will be installed on Polaris RZRs beginning 2013.  In case you aren’t aware, these next generation UTVs are not your dad’s UTVs.  They are high performance, amazing machines that are faster, and more fun than ever.  Now, I had been on the dirt test track previously while driving many UTVs, as well as a RZR with a conventional belt.  Every time I encountered rough terrain that bounced, my conventional seat belt literally caused me pain in my shoulder and waist due to cinching.  I found myself backing off the gas peddle to lessen the discomfort on the rough areas of the track.

Of course, I understand why so many UTV drivers refuse to use their seat belts in rough terrain.  Because it hurts!  They’ve made a choice of comfort over safety, and that is flat out dangerous!  But with this new belt, in my opinion, IMMI is going to change the minds and save the lives of many UTV riders with their new restraints.  Not only are these things so comfortable, that you don’t even notice that you are wearing one, but they are also easy to use and durable as heck!  They have successfully addressed every negative issue and have produced a seat belt that is the most user-friendly belt I’ve ever had on!  And trust me, if I can’t tear it, then up nobody can!  With John Andretti driving the RZR during our test, he took it to race car driver level, which I do not recommend that anyone try at home.  Remember folks, he is a professional driver!   We pushed it to the limits, and were experiencing the toughest conditions that any person could ever experience while in the outdoors, and I didn’t even realize my belt was there, with the exception that I felt very secure wearing it.  Amazing!  Way to go IMMI!
