—Leading Police Motorcycle Competition Winner –Officer Quinn Redeker – Samples
New Wear-Resistant Brake Rotors in Upcoming Phoenix, AZ, Manteca, CA, and Roseville, CA Competition Courses—
SAN DIEGO – April 26, 2012 – PureForge, the only company using patented Atomic-Forged technology to make metal tougher, announces the first test of its wear-resistant brake rotors on a police competition course. The rotors have been mounted to the BMW motorcycle that leading police motorcycle competitor Quinn Redeker will ride April 27 and 28 in the 16th Annual Southwest Police Motorcycle Training and Competition in Phoenix, AZ. The timed course challenges the riders and motorcycles with several agility exercises that assess penalties for knocking over cones, putting a foot down and other infractions. Redeker, a Ventura Police Department Motor Officer and Trainer/Instructor for Ventura, CA Police Department, also plans to compete with PureForge rotors at the Manteca, Calif., Police Motor Skills and Training Competition May 12, and at the Roseville, Calif., Police Motor Competition May 19, which will give PureForge valuable performance metrics and insights.
“PureForge is thrilled to put the rotors – rather than the rubber – to the road in our first-ever use on a competition course,” said Nathan K. Meckel, Co-founder, President and CTO of PureForge. “Reviewing PureForge’s rotor performance in demanding situations like these helps us ensure that we meet unprecedented quality and performance standards for our customers. We are honored to have Officer Quinn Redeker, one of the finest motorcyclists in the country, be the first to sample our rotors on a competition course.”
The public is invited to meet PureForge and see Quinn Redeker and other riders from 19 police fleets participate in the competitions beginning at 7 a.m. on April 28 at the Phoenix Municipal Stadium, 5999 E. Van Buren St. in Phoenix, AZ. Redeker, who has been perfecting his skills since the age of nine, is considered a front-running opponent following 16 first-place finishes in 2011, including the outright course record at last year’s Southwest Police Motorcycle Training and Competition event.
