Phil Armes continues to defy the odds using Eazi-Grip Tank Grips!

We had the pleasure of meeting Phil Armes at the Official BSB Testing last week at Silverstone. We are keen to share his story and the impact of using Eazi-Grip Tank Grips has had on his confidence getting back on the course.

In August 1995 Phil Armes’ motorcycle racing career came to an abrupt end when he crashed at the Ulster Grand Prix and broke his back, leaving him paralysed from the lower chest down, and confined to a wheelchair.
Fast forward 18 years and the father of three was invited, as a past winner, to take part in the 90th anniversary celebrations of the Manx Grand Prix on the world famous TT course in the Isle of Man. This included a parade lap which the organisers agreed that Phil could take part in, if he could prove he was safe and competent to do so.
After learning to ride again on a modified bike at The Bike Experience charity at Silverstone race circuit he took on the challenge of riding the world’s toughest track in September 2013. It didn’t all go according to plan and a technical issue forced Phil to pull out after 24 miles of the 37 ¾ mile circuit. Two subsequent attempts in 2014 and 2015 were thwarted by a combination of technical and weather problems, but on August 29th 2016 Phil became the first paraplegic to complete a solo lap of the TT course on his Triumph Daytona 675.
After finishing the lap Phil said, “that was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done on a motorcycle, but also one of the most rewarding. To be able to ride the TT course again was certainly something I never thought would be possible, but it just goes to show that if you put your mind to something you can often get a great outcome.”
 
The Triumph Daytona was fitted with several technical modifications including a duel brake lever on the right handlebar, a Pro-Shift gear change unit with auto-blipper which allowed for thumb operated gear changes, and extended footrests with cycle toe clips to secure Phil’s feet safely. But one of the simplest additions, that made one of the biggest improvements was the fitting of Eazi-Grip tank grips. Being paralysed means that Phil can slide in the seat, and the extra grip between his knees and the tank eliminated much of this problem and made life so much easier.

Riding the TT course was the height of his return to two wheels, but just two weeks prior to this historic ride, he also made an emotional return to Northern Ireland to successfully complete a lap of the Ulster GP track that he crashed at 21 years ago. He commented afterwards, “the Dundrod track is known as the fastest road race in the world, but it took me 21 years to complete a lap which has to be some sort of record in it’s own right!”

We are so pleased to have been a part of Phil’s journey and wish him all the best for the future.

Eazi-Grip™ and Eazi-Guard™ put to the test in 2016

With the 2016 Road Racing season coming to a close, we can’t thank all of our sponsored riders and teams enough for their support of our products.  This season our products have been put to the test and have ended up on the podium at almost every event. 

Eazi-Guard™ is proving itself as a must have product at every road race to protect not only the bodywork but also fork legs and swing arms on the bike and even riders helmets.  At the 2016 Isle of Man TT our stone chip protection tape was not only used to protect the bikes but also used on the on-board cameras, to help prevent the lenses from cracking around the 37.33mile course, helping to prove how durable our product really is.  

We have made strides with Eazi-Grip™ making it a stronger product than ever before.  We are currently working on developing a Silicone Grip to line up next to our Evo and Pro grips for 2017. 

The Eazi-Grip™ Team will be at Intermot during the week of October 3-9th showcasing all of our products.  Feel free to stop by and check out whats new in the UK Pavillion Hall 8.

Eazi-Grip™ Sponsored Tag Racing Moves Up To British Superbikes 2014

Eazi-Grip™ sponsored Tag Racing will be moving up to British superbikes in 2014. The supersport team based in Swadlincote, Derbyshire will join the championship running the Kawasaki ZX-10R.

“We’ve been considering a switch to superbikes for a while now and feel that the time is right for us to take on this new challenge,” said team owner Rob Winfield.

“The championship rules allow privately run teams like ours to compete on a level playing field and we are confident that we have the experience and resources to step up and contribute to what is one of the world’s most exciting race series.

“As a team, we have learned a great deal racing in the supersport class and have proved ourselves through a series of race wins, pole positions and fastest laps. We’ve worked hard over the years to put out a professional team and we are delighted that this has been recognised by Kawasaki Motors UK and MSVR, who have both welcomed our move into the superbike class. Racing in superbike will not only provide us with a fresh sporting challenge but will give considerably more exposure for our team sponsors.”
