🔥 VALVES FOR LIFE
If you manage to break, snap, bend or crack our valves* then we’ll fix or replace them free of charge!
⚔️ INSERT COMPATIBLE BASE
THE ADDITION OF A UNIQUE FOUR-WAY X-CUT BASE TO ENABLES OUR VALVES TO NOW WORK WITH ALL TYRE INSERTS.
THE CHANNELS CUT INTO THE BASE OF THE VALVE ALLOW AIR AND SEALANT TO PASS THROUGH WHEN INSERTS ARE PUSHED UP AGAINST THEM.
UNLIKE MOST OTHER INSERT-COMPATIBLE VALVES, OUR VALVES HAVE A ‘STRAIGHT-THROUGH’ DESIGN SO THERE’S NO REDUCTION OF SEALANT OR AIR FLOW WHEN TYRE INSERTS ARE NOT USED.
ALL OF THIS WITH NO ADDED WEIGHT!
🔧 Spoke key cap
Our MK2 valves now come with a WORLD-FIRST SPOKE KEY Presta valve CAP!
THE spoke KEY IS SIZED FOR STANDARD 3.4MM SPOKE NIPPLES AND IS THE PERFECT TOOL FOR TIGHTENING LOOSE SPOKES IN TRAILSIDE EMERGENCIES.
To use, simply unscrew the cap, slot your spoke through the gap in the top of the cap and slide down the spoke until the cap fits over your spoke nipple.
