Lightweight batteries provide performance advantage for racers and recreational riders
Shorai batteries are the unrivaled choice for dirt bikes equipped with an electric starter. Shorai batteries are 70-80% lighter than lead-acid batteries commonly used in dirt bikes and provide faster cranking for quick starts and re-starts, which are common in EnduroCross. The GEICO AMA EnduroCross Series is pleased to name Shorai as the official battery of the 2013 EnduroCross season.
“A lot of the EnduroCross racers are using electric start bikes and the Shorai batteries are a perfect fit. Saving weight while boosting the cranking power for re-starts are a huge benefit since even the best riders tip over in EnduroCross” said Lance Bryson, Director of Sales and Marketing for EnduroCross.
“EnduroCross is such an exciting sport and a perfect place to showcase the benefits of Shorai batteries” stated Kevin Riley, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Shorai. “We are looking forward to working with the EnduroCross team to help spread the awareness of Shorai”.
