Uses for Indigenous People & Rural Communities
KXI’s Wildertec division was founded on the belief that our technologies can support and strengthen the communities that live more holistically with the wilderness. Our suite of products represents our pledge to assist with the efforts of Indigenous People and Rural Communities that require challenging 4×4 transportation.
Wildertec solutions for Indigenous Peoples and Remote Communities include:
- Conservation and Policing
- Medical Response
- Forest Fire First Response
- Flood & Disaster First Response
- Arctic Environment Services
- Park & Sensitive Ecosystem Patrol
- Ranching & Agriculture
MANAGE VEHICLE CENTER OF GRAVITY & MASS LIKE NEVER BEFORE
Our patent pending suspension conversion offers unprecedented management of center of gravity and center of mass for the converted 4×4 vehicle. Wildertec Suspension offers any level of driver who has taken our driver orientation & training more safety, control and comfort while traversing complex terrain and steep slopes. Gyroscope-enabled & onboard air assisted technology provides two key advantages that develop this new standard in 4×4 transportation safety – terrain flotation and extreme side slope capability.
UNPRECEDENTED VEHICLE FLOTATION
Also called ‘nominal ground pressure’, flotation is the measurement of the ability to stay above the terrain without sinking into it, where traction is the lowest and environmental disturbance is the highest. At less than 2psi, our 2018 Ford F-150 truck converted with Wildertec Suspension has greater flotation than a walking adult. This level of flotation not only equips the vehicle with the traction to reach some of the most remote locations on earth, but it also leaves virtually no disturbance of the ground, wildlife or plant life in its path.
Our Commitment to Environment shows how Wildertec vehicle conversions by KXI provide maximum ecosystem protection
The ability to stay atop the terrain is produced using KXI’s state-of-the-art low PSI tires, extremely lightweight parts, removal of all unnecessary materials and our patent pending suspension technology which auto-levels to maintain vehicle balance and center of gravity control in all circumstances, when used as directed.
EXTREME SLOPE CAPABILITIES
Vehicles of all types are rendered useless on slippery side slopes, even on slopes as small as a 5% gradient. Their inability to adjust for any variance in their center of gravity means that the tires on the low side of the slope could have >90% of the vehicle mass pushing on them, driving them into the terrain, potentially leading to slipping down the slope or in extreme cases, causing rollover.
Vehicle converted to the Wildertec Suspension System maintain even weight distribution between all tires, even on aggressive side slopes, by balancing the suspension and tire pressure of each individual tire. With nearly a 2ft differential clearance, 20″ of suspension travel and an agile 35ft turning radius provided by the 4-wheel steering, workers can now can safely access millions of miles of rugged terrain, previously only accessible via more expensive and dangerous means of helicopter or small single-track vehicle.v
BUILT-IN SAFETY FEATURES
Central Air Inflation
In addition to adjusting tire pressure for optimal traction, the on-board central air inflation system provides a leak guard technology, where in the unlikely event of a puncture or leak to the triple sidewall protection tires, the tires will stay inflated in order to return home. Our tires are designed to deliver maximum safety and control at various tire air pressures, from low to highway speeds.
The suspension utilizes gyroscope-enabled technology that communicates with the central air system to maintain a balanced vehicle cabin and assist the driver in maintaining control of the vehicle at all times.
