Among several new tools, Motion Pro had these cool Ti Prolight Titanium Wrenches, which it claims are more than 75 percent lighter than standard steel wrenches. Because the wrenches are so light, Motion Pro recommends them for onboard tool kits for dirtbikes and streetbikes.
A set of four (including 8mm, 10mm, 12mm and 14mm) retails for $99.99. You can also buy them individually: 8mm ($16.99), 10mm ($21.99), 12mm ($30.99), 13mm ($35.99) and 14mm ($39.99).
Pacific Coast Sunglasses Inc. had several new models of sunglasses: Tribal KD’s; the old-school Blackbird sunglasses with two different frame colors, all-black or black arms with a red frame; five new models of Biker Chix sunglasses; and Blue Ice with blue mirror lenses. It comes in polarized also.
Helmet House had two new Italian boots: the TCX SS Sport street boot and the TCX Comp 2 off-road boot. The former is “inspired by the styling of TCX’s road racing boots and designed to offer the comfort and functionality of a sport-touring-inspired product while keeping the boot at an entry-level price point.” Suggest retail is $199.99, and the boot comes in black or white.
The TCX Comp 2 is equipped with the same Torsion Control System found on the brand’s Pro 2 boot, but it does not have that model’s inner booty. It retails for $269.99.
A former soldier with Britain’s special forces reportedly developed UTAG products, which allow riders to carry easily accessible personal and medical details.
Two products in the lineup are a standard-sized card and dog tags, both of which incorporate a flip-out USB stick that hold information such as emergency contacts, blood type, current medication, copies of a passport or driver’s license, and so on. Sensitive data can be password-protected.
The software also features a seven-language translation function, available via clicking on icons of national flags. The card and tags are decorated with the international medical symbol of the snake and staff, as well as with the acronym ICE.
Ashton, Ill.-based Fly N Cycle Inc. distributes the products. The company was also displaying officially licensed MotoGP products made by Bike It in the U.K. The lineup includes teardrop-shaped knee sliders, kneeling pads, a rain cover for bikes, a track pump and key rings featuring the MotoGP logo — or representing riders Capirossi, Dovizioso, Edwards, Hayden, Lorenzo, Pedrosa, Roberts, Rossi, Spencer, Schwantz, Stoner, Toseland and Vermeulen.
CST, a subsidiary of the same Taiwanese company that owns the Maxxis brand, had two new tires. The ABUZZ is the brand’s latest ATV tire. CST says the tire is designed for everything from soft to hard pack, and can “roll through the worst a trail can dish out, including mud, sand and rocks.” The 6-ply tire is reportedly lightweight for “effortless steering, quick braking and rapid acceleration.” Shoulder lugs help with cornering traction while protecting the sidewall.
CST designed the Surge S dirtbike tire for soft terrain. It features widely spaced, self-cleaning knobs and a rubber compound “specially formulated for durability.” (continued)
