IT’S (NOT) HOT IN HERE…

DEI Powersports has launched what they call the next generation of heat protection performance using a combination of advanced textiles and a reliable stand-off bracket design.

For improved thermal performance, DEI joined two durable materials together to form a dual layer design.

WIPE OUT!

Driving in poor weather conditions brings with it many challenges with real pressure on windscreen wiper blades, although they are often the most neglected component on a vehicle according to consumer research.
