Stay Safe During Spring Storms with the Ride-On Smart Cap TPMS V.2

For drivers, April showers can create hazardous road conditions, but Ride-On's Smart Cap TPMS V.2 allows you to keep your tire pressure at an appropriate and safe level.

LOS ANGELES, March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- High gusts of wind, mud slides and rain storms that coat roads with water and debris can make spring a challenging time for drivers. Fortunately, Ride-On has a wide variety of products that can improve vehicle performance while providing a number of essential safety functions. Ride-On's tire sealant and tire balancers coat the inner liner of tires with a substance that contains fibers that are six times stronger than steel. Rain storms and melting snow can also lead to hydroplaning, coating the road in a layer of water that reduces tire traction. Maintaining proper tire pressure can be vital for keeping control under wet, treacherous conditions, and, with Ride-On's LED Smart Cap tire pressure monitoring system, ensuring a safe level of pressure is easier than ever.

While Ride-On offers a number of impeccably designed products, their tire pressure monitoring system --an LED Smart Cap-- is one of their best known. Recently, the company has outdone themselves again with their LED Smart Cap TPMS V. 2. Once installed, the Smart Cap TPMS calibrates automatically to the internal pressure of a tire. In the event that the tire loses 4 PSI or more, the TPMS alerts the driver with a blinking red light. As the battery begins to run low, the Smart Cap even blinks yellow, providing ample time to increase tire pressure before reaching hazardous levels.

The Ride-On Smart Cap TPMS V.2 includes a number of advancements that place it above even their impressive V.1. For instance, battery life has been extended to 5 years, and perhaps even better, the TPMS V.2 allows for easy battery changing by the user without the use of special tools. At 21.612 mm x 15.29 mm and weighing only 14.6 g, it is noticeably compact and light, ensuring it never detracts from the aesthetics or utility of the vehicle.

Maintaining correct tire pressure is one of the most important safety measures one can take for their vehicle. Tire pressure that is too high or low can compromise cornering, braking and stability, potentially leading to tire failure, and serious accidents. To ensure road safety for vehicles that range from cars to trucks, motorcycles, ATVs and industrial vehicles, drivers across the globe are learning that the tire protection offered by Ride-On products is utterly invaluable. Since 1985, their team has proved their commitment to the highest levels of quality-- a fact that's evidenced by their stringent laboratory testing and thousands of satisfied customers.

For drivers of commercial trucks or motorcycles that find themselves racing down slick highways during the rainy season, Ride-On's LED Stem Cap TPMS V.2 can mean the difference between a safe, comfortable ride, and a life-threatening collision.
