Rental Handlebar Pad

Renthal, a leader in products for Supercross/Motocross motorcycles, has produced a limited-edition handlebar pad sold exclusively on its website that will help the recovery effort in Japan.

Renthal reports that 100-percent of the proceeds will support the American Red Cross relief efforts in Japan as the country recovers from the March 11 Earthquake and subsequent Tsunami that devastated the country.

Renthal says: “We are only producing 500 of these limited edition handlebar pads and once we’ve sold through them, we will be able to make a donation to the American Red Cross for close to $10,000.00.

“Renthal has very close ties with the factories in Japan, including Honda, Kawasaki and Suzuki and we feel very strongly about doing our part to assist them in any way we can to help them get through this difficult tragedy.”

Renthal will supply their race teams with the LE handllebar pad at the 2011 Supercross Season finale at Las Vegas this weekend.

The pad will sell for $19.95 and can only be bought directly off the Renthal website.
