What is an OPD and how can it help?

An operator protective device (OPD), also referred to as a crush protection device (CPD), is an engineered attachment that is fitted to a quad bike. They are designed to help protect riders from crush related injuries in the event of a rollover.

Independent research notes that fitment of OPDs to quad bikes are likely to offer a net safety benefit in low speed crashes typical of most on-farm use.
