HM Quickshifter Pit Board

TRACKDAY SEASON is fast approaching and it’s time to start prepping your bike and stocking up on the latest must-have gear and gadgets.

If you’re looking to improve your pit process, then you won’t go wrong with HM Quickshifter’s innovative new LED Pit Board, which promises to save team mechanics time (and errors).

While HM Quickshifter is better known for its namesake product, this latest offering boasts professional specification and accuracy. With adjustable brightness of the high visibility LED lights, full QWERTY keyboard on the reverse side and a built-in lap timer, it promises to be useful to club racers and trackday addicts alike.

The two row board boasts five memory settings, meaning that team members no longer need to worry about inputting the correct numbers into a traditional board before the rider completes the lap.  And as well as that QWERTY keyboard, teams can also use emojis to communicate with the rider while they are on track. Quite what practical use that will have is yet to be seen, but it will make for some hilarious messages...

HM Quickshifter General Manager Ben Varley explained “Having spent a lot of time in race paddocks around the world, we know just how hard team members work and the pressure they’re under. Our new LED Pit Board will help them convey crucial messages to riders, help speed up the process of imputing the data and also ensure the rider can clearly see it, thanks to its high visibility.”

The pit board has been trialled in race paddocks throughout 2018, including the Bennetts British Superbike Championship, and is now on sale at £499.99 (Plus VAT).
