60 mph in only 2.5 seconds! There’s no escaping the Ariel Atom!

06 Aug 2014

Visit the ORAFOL stand H30 at this year’s Emergency Services Show in Birmingham, UK  to see the newest Ariel Atom 3.5R model, complete with police livery film.  Standing just 3.4m long and 1.2m high, the Atom weighs just 612 kg.  No roof, no doors, no windscreen, no carpet, no heater, no stereo but max speed and fun, the Atom was chosen to head up the latest safety awareness campaign for Safer Rider.  The Atom was chosen as it is the most bike-like car on the market with its slim and sharp profile.

Sergeant Andy Parsons who heads up the UK Safer Rider campaign, says: "In the UK motorcyclists make up just 1 per cent of total road traffic but account for nearly 20% of all road user deaths. They are roughly 35 times more likely to be killed in a road traffic collision than someone in a car. We really want to create awareness in order to see these numbers reduced."

So how come it’s on the ORAFOL stand at the upcoming Emergency Services Show you might ask?  Well, ORAFOL are the manufacturers of VC 612 Flexibright, the livery film used on this sleek car.  ORAFOL’s Reflexite® VC 612 is a highly conformable high performance reflective livery film.  It has very high brightness and is available in silver, green, blue, red, yellow, fluorescent lime and fluorescent orange.  Its unique handling allows it to conform to the demands of curved vehicle shapes.  Due to its flexibility, it is also ideal for application onto motorbikes.  This flexible property also allows for templating using far fewer pieces, with single piece removability where applicable.

VC 612 is easy to cut, requires no edge sealing and withstands power washing.  It comes with an extensive warranty and meets the UK CAST (formerly PSDB) specifications.

See you in Birmingham on stand H30!
