There’s more than one way to get on and off your motorcycle, and more than a few reasons to learn them all. Professional motorcycle instructor Cassie Maier teaches how you can save tons of energy once you master a variety of mounting and dismounting techniques, which are all especially useful on loaded adventure bikes in off-road environments. These are the same techniques she uses to manage her 550+ pound BMW R1250GS all day long when teaching adventure motorcycle classes.
This enormous gain in comfort was made possible by using a new coating material for the rollers: tetrahedrally amorphous carbon (ta-C), also known as industrial diamond. This coating is characterized by extreme hardness and resistance and in this respect it is placed between the well-known DLC coating (Diamond Like Carbon) and pure diamond. In contrast to the metal surfaces used so far, the coating with the ta-C industrial diamond does not wear off. At the same time, this type of coating also offers a drastically reduced friction coefficient.
