introduced the Skidbike
tool for law enforcement motorcycle training at its annual conference in Las Vegas, according to the company.
Police emergency vehicle operations trainers were able to test-drive the Skidbike at the 2013 International Skidcar Conference in mid-April. More than 30 police trainers tested it out.
"We've put so much energy and focus into developing what we hoped would strike a chord with motorcycle professionals and rider trainers," said Dane Pitarresi, Skidcar president.
Trainers told the company that Skidbike "does a terrific job of emulating a front wheel skid caused by over-braking or lack of traction. It also provides a safe means of teaching techniques to recover from an unexpected front wheel skid," according to the company.
