Timber front bumper to protect wheels etc from direct impacts.

front bumper or fender

Steel compression rods to pass bumper impact loads directly back into the chassis main structural members.

At the very front of the kart is a timber bumper or fender. This is advised in order to protect the front wheels from accidental impacts with obstacles. The bumper is made from shaped planed timber and is easily replaced if damaged.

The main structural connection is via two steel compression rods to the kart's front beam and so to the main structural longerons.

Remember to check out our Safety Guidance - always use your kart responsibly.
