Cross Propz - Portable Barriers
Perfect for cyclocross race practice, Cross Propz portable barriers are 40cm (15 3/4") tall, conforming to UCI standards.
Using these barriers for practice will help you develop the skills and confidence for dismounting, clearing barriers and remounting that is such a critical element in Cyclocross racing. The portability of these barriers make practice even easier, they weight just 2.2lbs
( 1 kilo) come in a handy carry bag with a strap, so you can throw them over your shoulder and head out to our favorite practice area whenever you have a little time on your hands.
These barriers actually self assemble, spring back into shape when hit, and are easy to set up, just take them out of the carry bag and you're ready to go. Set up three or four sets for a simulated race course with as many dismount sections as you desire.
Cross Propz eliminates the need to carry heavy boards or planks to practice on. You won't need a vehicle to put them in, they're so light you can ride to practice slinging these over your shoulder.
These barriers are being used by the nations top coaches, by junior development teams, and individual racers,from the recreational ranks to the Top Elites. (see here)
Cross Propz help to keep you injury free while practicing....if you crash into a Cross Propz barrier they won't hurt you. Don't try that with a wooden or metal barrier. These are great for everyone to practice with, folks are able to develop the skills they need without the bruises......at least not from the barriers!
