  • FS - SCHROTH RALLYE 4 ASM Harness

    As the title states. This is brand new in the box. Black in colour. PN#16100



    Never mounted. I paid $250 for it and will let it go for an even $200

    Anyone looking for a great way to save your ass and improve track days, this is the way to go.

    I've run a harness in my cars for the past 13 years and it was this one that saved my ass last year when my MKIV GTI was written off at 100KPH+.

    It's a pretty simple install and will install on most VW models. It will work on alot of other vehicles, LMK and I can check the install guide for you when I'm at home.

    Contact me by PM or at 604.802.5872(call or text)

    Thanks,

    Mike.

      These are a 2" belt, like the factory belts in your car. Only this is a way better belt.

      Here's why (from Schroth):

      The Schroth Rallye 4 is the de facto standard for anyone looking for a simple, clean, DOT-approved and Safe 4 point harness. The technology built into the harness puts it in a category above the belts made by other manufacturers. The years of testing and motorsport experience only give credit to what the engineers have been saying all along.

      There are two main reasons why the Schroth Belts are the only safe 4 point harnesses: ASM technology and the ability to install the belts to stock harness mounting locations.

      ASM stands for Anti-SubMarining. It's an extra flap of material sewn into the inboard shoulder belt that prevents you from sliding underneath the lap belt. In a 4 point harness made by some other company, the two shoulder straps restrain your upper body equally. They keep your chest from moving forward. However, this also pulls up on the lap belt and allows your accellerating pelvis to slide under the lap belt and cause serious damage to your stomach and intestines. With ASM, one of the shoulder belts will elongate at a different rate which will force your pelvis down into the seat cushion. Upon rebound, you will be placed back in an upright position with the belt correctly placed over your body.

      The advantages of being able to mount an aftermarket 4 point harness to stock mounting locations are many. First and foremost is the knowledge that these points have been load tested. This means that the manufacturer of your vehicle engineered the points to be able to withstand some truly amazing forces for a specified length of time. In plain English this means that the bolts won't pull out of the sheet metal.

      It also means (in the case of a Schroth Harness) that you can retain the use of your stock 3-point harness, allowing you the use of the backseat of your car. If you have the need to transport passengers (or cargo) in your backseat, it is possible to disconnect the tailstrap (a feature only Schroth has) and use your normal 3 point harness.

      These belts are perfect for Driver's Schools, Autocrosses and canyon runs with your local car club. They offer a comfortable and stylish harness that will hold you in your seat during spirited driving, as well as a restraint that will perform ahead of the competition in an impact. This belt will work perfectly for someone driving a vehicle that is on the vehicle reference list, as it is critical to test the seat back strength in order to make sure the seat can withstand the forces exerted upon it.


      Hope that explains everything.

        I am familiar with the brand. Thank you. I just wanted to know the width.
        I am looking for a wider belt and preferably 5pt minimum, but was curious since I wasn't sure how exact the image was.
        Thanks!
