On the 27 February we launched our newly evolved BRUMBY OFF ROAD with even more innovations and features, so let's celebrate the latest improvements to the Bondi and Noosa models.
INDEPENDENT TRAILING ARM SUSPENSION SYSTEM AS STANDARD
Recently, we announced that we'd upgraded the suspension system on our Gidget Bondi, Noosa and Brumby models so we can provide a quality suspension as standard. This upgraded suspension system not only increases the durability of your Gidget reducing impact from road conditions, but also further protects your items inside, as well as your tow vehicle....extending the life of all these valuable possessions.
This quality suspension system replaces standard leaf springs and enables Gidget owners to leave the bitumen roads and highways and travel on graded or made roads [covered by the warranty when driven to the conditions].
And the developments and upgrades continue...
ALL GIDGETS INCLUDE A HAND BRAKE AS STANDARD
To incorporate the new suspension system, a redesign was required for the chassis and underfloor, however it also gave us an opportunity to include a hand brake—the redesign and nature of the suspension making this possible. We've had several industry reviews of our Gidgets and when challenged to find any fault, their only wish was for a hand brake. Done, and this has been applied to the Bondi, Noosa and Brumby models.
DOUBLE THE GAS CAPACITY NOW AS STANDARD
Hey, while we're doing a redesign it's a perfect opportunity to increase the gas capacity made possible by the upgraded suspension. We were also motivated by a change in available gas bottle sizes in the USA, this larger capacity allows Australian and New Zealand owners to use an 8.5kg bottle and our North American customers a 20Lb bottle—which is now the standard. So two birds, one stone.
GIDGET BONDI NOW WITH THE SAME LARGER SUBFRAME STEEL AS THE NOOSA
Again during the redesign, we've upgraded the Bondi chassis steel from 75mm high to 100mm high, an even stronger more durable chassis.
GIDGET BONDI NOW HAS A 100AH BATTERY UPGRADE INCLUDED AS STANDARD
This upgrade from 85AH to 100AH, equal to our Noosa, allows our Bondi owners more time 'off the grid'.
ALL STEEL COMPONENTS, CHASSIS AND UNDERFLOOR ARE LASERCUT OR TURRET PUNCHED FOR OPTIMUM ACCURACY
Previously made at our factory, all these components are now supplied by an Australian manufacturer who utilise the latest technology and machinery. It means an even better built Gidget, and assists in quicker build times.
CENTRALISED LARGE WATERTANKS GIVE GIDGET INCREASED STABILITY
The change in suspension from the Leaf Springs to the new independent trailing arm suspension allowed us to move the large water tanks into a central position over the axle, increasing stability whilst travelling.
NEW BUILT IN DOOR STAYS
Every Gidget now comes standard with custom door stays installed, which allows both doors to be held open in two different positions.
Gidget.....Live & Love the Lifestyle.
