New Tech: Steele Racing Products Gen4 Belt Cooler

Steele Racing Products knows that broken belts on the trail or in the dunes can make any adventure turn south. Under the canopy at the Sand Sports Super Show, their fans could be heard aisles away when the switch was flipped.

At the show, Steele Racing Products showed off their Gen4 belt cooler, specifically for the Polaris RZR. Attaching to the side of the belt cover, the fan would provide extra cooling to the belt.

“The benefit of the Steele Racing Products Gen4 belt cooler would be the thermal management of the clutch belt via our integration with Razorback Technologies temperature gauge,” Sean Auer of Steele Racing Products explained. “This system extends the life of the belt by constantly monitoring belt temperature via Razorback’s infrared sensor and adjusting the output of the Gen4 fan to keep the belt at optimum operating temperature.”

It is nice when installing a product knowing that it is one thing you do not need to worry about turning on or monitoring while enjoying it. This is definitely a product that does just that.

“RZR and Can-Am owners should pay attention to belt temperature, especially when they have upgraded engine and suspension components,” Auer said. “Attention is needed to avoid belt failure, thus constantly purchasing new clutch belts which, as we all know, is not cheap and annoying.”

Steele Racing Products plans on having multiple versions of their belt cooling system and package with Razorback Technologies. Having multiple versions will give side-by-side owners across the board the benefits of extended clutch-belt life, whether they have a heavily modified vehicle or not.
