BOPLAN® RACE TOTEM
NEXT-LEVEL COLLISION PROTECTION FOR CYCLING RACES
The BOPLAN® RACE TOTEM can be used at potentially dangerous places in the course where clear signage is required: at pedestrian refuge islands, speed bumps, junctions, pinch points, narrowings of carriageways, dangerous obstacles such as road signs and posts, street furniture, etc. Deployment of race marshals in these areas is often inadequate and even dangerous, with possibly serious consequences such as bodily injury to participants and employees.
The BOPLAN® RACE TOTEM is designed to warn participants of an obstacle in time. In the event of an impact, the energy-absorbing polymer ensures much less risk of injury.

- easy and quick to install

BOPLAN® RACE PILLAR
EXTENSION FOR ROAD FURNITURE
The BOPLAN® RACE PILLAR is a specially designed safety solution to extend the length of smaller traffic furniture.

In addition, the arrows provide extra signalling and guide the riders in the right direction.
