Aluminum Versus Steel Ramps

Although their strength is comparable, each has unique advantages:

  • Aluminum ramps will never rust or corrode, and they are more lightweight than steel for easier portability.
  • Steel ramps are more affordable, are usually powder-coated for rust protection, and they are hard to dent.

Single-Runner Ramp Features

Why choose a single-runner ramp over a full ramp? Because:

  • They are ideal for smaller motorcycles, like dirt bikes.
  • Most single-runner ramps fold for compact storage.
  • The rung design allows debris to pass through easily.
  • The punch plate design offers superior traction.
