The 2018 riding season is in full swing and we've already had a number of riders equip their bikes with the original Dustriders hoist, available in the USA since 2014. One of the key reasons the Dustriders hoist remains one of your best options for off-road/rough terrain use is the Y-shaped base. It would be far simpler for Dustriders to manufacture a straight hoist body, but you'd lose the extra stability that comes with a much wider footprint. Honestly, if you've just dumped your bike and need to break out a hoist to get it back off the ground, the last thing you want is for your lifting device to be unstable and slide out. While the proprietary Y-piece makes the hoist slightly larger when disassembled, it more than makes up for it with lifting strength and stability. We have the Dustriders Hoist in stock at the warehouse in NY and ready to ship out immediately. Please feel free to email me or call the shop at (585) 310-ADVM with any questions. Thanks!
