GEAR BAG

The Enduro Engineering Axle Pull Handles slide right inside of the axle and secured with taper locks, front or rear, to provide you a handle to ensure the removal of the axle much easier and smoother. With this item it takes away any feeling of needing to hammer out the axle from the wheel, taking away the risk of damaging any parts. This can be very helpful when in the middle of a race and there is a need to switch wheels or change a tire. Also makes simple maintenance jobs much easier when there is something to grab onto to pull the axle out.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

The Best in the Desert’s Mesquite GP was always one of the toughest races I participated in. It was riddled with blow sand, making for endless whoops with sharp edges taking all control and flushing it down the commode. Every time I raced it I thought someone had installed broom handles inside my front fork. Here I’m Husaberg 400 mounted, pretty sure it’s 1993 and if you could parachute into my forearms you’d see tubes of cement!
