The Road Legal Four Wheel Drive Association is pleased to announce the Team Stealth directive and pledge to reduce noise out on the trails and roads via our Sworn To Silence campaign. Through 30 years of being with organizations like TreadLightly! Blue Ribbon Coalition, The National 4-H OHV Youth Vision Team, and the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC), we know that sound kills trails. Riding on trails with vehicles that echo through the woods is one of the fastest ways motorized recreation loses trail use.
Back in the '90s, Dirt Rider magazine launched Project Stealth designed to raise awareness of excessive sound for motorcycles. The campaign went through a number of changes over the years until it finally was lost altogether. There's a history of sound being a reason things get shut down which can be traced back to the '50s. We'll write more on that stuff in our blogs at a later time, just know there's a long history of "less sound = more ground".
We're coming up with a logo for this directive and it'll be available to those who wish to pledge "Sworn To Silence". Those that do, will have access to our exclusive stickers, hats, jackets, patches, and more to promote awareness of sound closing trails.
This page will be updated as this all comes together.
