Promoto is the name behind the famous "Oggy Knobbs" brand frame sliders and aims to provide the best possible solutions to minimise damage to your pride and joy in an accident. Oggy Knobs and Axle Oggys help reduce the damage by taking the brunt of the crash impact and road surface abrasion. Oggy products can significantly reduce the repair costs after a fall.Promoto take design and quality very seriously. Only the strongest, most resilient materials are used to ensure strength, performance and appearance. State of the art manufacturing techniques like CNC machining, laser cutting and MIG welding are used in the production process for accuracy and perfect fit. The brackets are made from high tensile steel alloy for vastly superior strength and minimal weight, aluminium compression components are made from aircraft grade 7075 T6511, the bolts are de-embrittled, high tensile items, zinc plated and clear chromated, the "plastic" used in the sliders is Acetal for the best combination of shock absorbsion, abrasion resistance and strength. All metallic components are fully finished for corrosion resistance and durability as well as a pleasing appearance.Most Oggy Knobbs kits are designed to fit without any fairing modifications, also known as "no cut" Some bikes may have both a “cut” and a “no cut” option. The “cut” option will be cheaper/lighter but less protective than a fully bracketed no-cut kit. They a fraction of the average bike repair bill. If you do have to er..use them and need to replace parts, spares are readily available. Protect your investment, accept no substitute, demand the best.
Oggy Knobbs take design and quality very seriously. Only the strongest, most resilient materials are used to ensure strength, performance and appearance. State of the art manufacturing techniques like CNC machining, laser cutting and MIG welding are used in the production process for accuracy and perfect fit. The brackets are made from high tensile steel alloy for great strength and minimal weight, aluminum components are usually made from aircraft grade 7075 T6511, the bolts are de-embrittled, high tensile items, zinc plated and clear chromated, the special "plastic" used in the sliders is Acetal for abrasion resistance, impact absorbsion and strength. All metallic components are fully finished for corrosion resistance and durability as well as a pleasing appearance.
Some points requiring careful consideration during the design process are based on factors such as chassis design (Is the frame design and materials used conducive to using Oggy Knobs?); the location points on the bike (Will these be strong enough to take the force of a crash impact without bending the rest of the bike or breaking the cylinder head or some other component?); and is there body work involved (Will owners want to modify their fairings or can a version with brackets be designed to avoid any modifications?). Not every design of motorcycle is suitable to just bolt a knob up to and forget about it. Many bikes require the knobs to be mounted via a steel bracket (aluminum brackets can be used in some of the light weight applications) for additional support to eliminate the risk of frame damage upon impact. The Triumph 675 range is a good example of this.
Naturally, the biggest question is what damage will Oggy Knobbs prevent if you actually have to er.."use" them? Well the answer will depend on the model of bike and the position of the knob. Promoto position the knobs to protect major components, (frame, radiator, fuel tank, engine) additional protection to body work and other components is a bonus.
Most Oggy Knob kits are designed to fit without any fairing modifications, also known as "no cut", whereas most other brands require cutting into the fairing. Some bikes may have both a “cut” and a “no cut” option. The “cut” option will be cheaper/lighter and is best suited to racing use where cutting fairings is of lesser importance. Refer to the fitment tables on page 5 for your model regarding any modifications.
Axle Oggys are Promoto's "Extra" crash damage reduction product. The devices help keep expensive components like fork legs, swingarm, wheels and calipers off the tarmac in the event of a spill. Axle Oggys are manufactured from the same strong and resilient materials as Oggy Knobbs. They mount through the axle for greatest strength and use a unique fastening system, exclusive to Axle Oggys, where you only need one tool to install or remove them. They are model-specific fitments that have all components machined specially for perfect fit, best performance and aesthetics. These additions not only look cool but are engineered to work as well. Protect your investment with products that actually work. If you do have a crash and need to replace parts, spares are available.
