Made with decent grade metal, and properly gusseted, i dont think its any less safe than a square setup...

Andre- THAT is the only cage I would change too if I was going to change...I love the looks, and it seems to me that radius would deflect impact better than square, hence the VW Baja bug, as we both know;) I could be wrong though...:p

whats up andre crossing over to us 4 seaters I have never seen one in person, but i would think it is safe enough for my kid.. as long as the construction isn't shitty. Taylor does not seem to be that type of buisnesman either everything i have seen from him he stands behind 110%. Quit makein excusses and buy one already:good:

I had a radius cage on my Teryx...the only issue I ran into was the height of the rear bar and having adults or taller kids back there. The radius cage that Taylor has is very nice, a different look for sure!

if no luck up there, call rigid and talk with Taylor. as far as safety, try and bend a piece of radius tubing over your leg and see how much harder it is than straight steel. definitely a safe set up

it'd be no weaker then a similarly built straight cage. maybe even stronger? bridge supports aren't arched for nothing... however they provide constant support, not shock loading.
I thought full potential made those? They look pretty sick.

Yes Yes Yes

Arches, Radius's have been known to be very strong. Trailers, bridges, classic construction, helmets, i think the design is proven. We have not had any issues, with the exception of Diesal's comment, the standard RAD4 can be too low for some. We offer a taller version (RAD4plus)that fits adults better-not that i condone adults in the back of a rhino-At least not when you are sober? Once you have been drinking quite a bit i dont see any problem with piling 6-8 people in your rhino to go hot-foot around.

For those of you out there who might not get my humor that was a joke.

Yes, full potential does build a radius cage also. And yes, we do love the SSV Works Stereo systems, just installed another one yesterday, but we offer different systems other than SSV works........thanks Nate.........j/k.....

Trevor,
No problem, i thought you might have been confused.....everyone knows that RIGID invented the Radius..........and the Wheel.
