UCS Inc. creates and supply’s ESPN X Games 15 with innovative Standards for the MotoX Step Up Event.
Day One of the ESPN X Games 15 begins tonight featuring the new and improved MotoX Step Up Final.
Los Angeles, CA, July 30, 2009:
Tonight at 9pm on ESPN 2 see the new innovative Step Up Standards that UCS designed and manufactured specifically for X Games 15. “Step Up is simple. It's a motorcycle high jump, or pole vaulting with a motorcycle instead of a pole. Riders hit a 12-foot vertical wall to catapult body and machine over a rod that loosely rests upon a set of uprights.” (Smith, 2009)
. UCS implemented the unique design used for Pole Vaulting Standards, but instead will accommodate heights up to 40 feet. The Step Up Standards were built using aluminum-alloy weighing nearly 400 lbs. each and will rest flat on the ground beside both sides of the dirt hill. They will also be using the UCS/Spirit crossbar that has been used in 4 Olympic Games, NCAA championships, USA Track & Field championship, and many other major events around the world.
