Inspired By Racing!
CSD Has built dozens of UTV race cars over the years, from modified RZR’s to complete custom chassis from the ground up. Much of the design and safety aspects of the cockpit section of our proven race chassis have been worked into our bolt-in UTV cages. In fact the design is literally lifted right from our race chassis and adapted to a bolt-in version. Safety is designed into every aspect of the cage, starting with beefy 1.75″ diameter .120″ wall DOM tubing or optional Chromoly. CSD Cages utilize the strength of triangulation throughout, including diagonal roof-bars and rear down-bars that all meet at a central nexus for unbeatable strength. The roof bars triangulate outward from this central nexus to the front A-pillar corners to stiffen the part of the cage most likely to impact during a rollover. Head space is another important consideration in cage safety, so CSD cages are built slightly wider at the top than competing cages to provide extra side-to-side head clearance and upper body protection. Because straight tubes are stronger than bends, the CSD cage is designed with as few bends as possible, and fortified by triangulating tubes at critical corners. The focus is on safety first, but we believe this approach results in a simple, purpose-built cage that performs and protects as good as it looks.
Excellence in Manufacturing
In our manufacturing process, cage tubes are precision notched to form the tightest, gap-free joints, then precision formed on an NC mandrel bender. Meanwhile, our cage bungs are CNC milled from solid steel, while foot plates are laser cut from steel plate. Fully welded cages are then assembled in our CAD-designed assembly jigs for repeatable accuracy and professionally MIG welded, or choose our beautifully TIG welded option.
