READING, Pa., (May 2016) – EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications and the manufacturer of ODYSSEY® batteries, will sponsor the Polaris RZR Turbo Class in the Terracross Championship.
EnerSys® will provide ODYSSEY® batteries to all vehicles entered in the 2016 Terracross Turbo RZR class. The ODYSSEY® battery logo will also appear on the competition vehicles entered in the same class.
“We are excited to add EnerSys to our great list of partners. We start and turn off our Polaris® RZRs hundreds of times a day and having ODYSSEY® batteries on board really gives our mechanics and top level athletes the ability to focus on other aspects of the event onsite and on track, knowing their Polaris RZR will be ready to start when they are!” said Joe Duncan, Terracross Sport Organizer.
ODYSSEY® batteries are designed with an Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) construction and Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology for more engine-cranking power and reserve power than conventional batteries.
ODYSSEY® batteries feature a three- to 10-year service life and two-year storage life at 77 degrees Fahrenheit (25 degrees Celsius). They are vibration resistant, classified as “non-spillable” by the U.S. Department of Transportation and include a limited two- to four-year full replacement warranty.
“Terracross is a perfect example of the harsh conditions where ODYSSEY® batteries thrive,” said Maria Orlando-Krick, marketing content and sponsorship manager at EnerSys. “The punishing conditions the athletes and vehicles endure in Terracross competition showcase the durability and performance of ODYSSEY® batteries.”
Terracross attracts high profile athletes, action sports stars, sports stars and celebrities offering them the opportunity to compete in equally equipped vehicles, which allows for talent to determine the winner. In addition to the Pro Classes, Terracross features a Women’s Class, a Celebrity X Class and a Military Veterans/Hero Adaptive Class, which sees Adaptive athletes/ soldiers competing against one another in specially modified Polaris RZRs.
