Rabaconda Portable Thee-Minute Tire Changer Sounds Cool

Tire, mousse, and tube changes are one of the things that simply can't be separated from motorcycling, but sometimes, these maintenance operations can take quite long. And that's where the Rabaconda 3-minute mousse changer steps in, making life easier and reducing the "dead time."

Rabaconda is a product that was designed and developed by the bike community, inspired by Finnish Pertti Ahonen. Using this gadget will drastically reduce the time spent replacing mousse and tires, but its main features are still the ease of use and portability.

Usually, when large numbers of riders gather in the same place, at least one workshop will be present, catering to their tire-related needs. Unlike any other bulky equipment serving the purpose, the Rabaconda 3-minute mousse changer comes with a small profile and low weight, and it’s easy to carry around even on a support motorcycle if need be.

With a weight of only 16 kg (35 lb), the Rabaconda 3-minute mousse changer is made from galvanized steel and anodized aluminum, it can accommodate hub bearings between 20 and 28mm in diameter and also works for tube tires.Sense and simplicity
The system is engineered to fit inside a strong Cordura bag, and assembling it or tearing it down can be made in less than a minute, without the need for any tools. Using quick-release bolts and boasting a highly intuitive design, the Rabaconda is easy to use even for less experienced riders with limited skills.

Suitable for use both on field trips and at home, the 3-minute mousse changer eliminates anything that was not essential for the job, and is, therefore, utterly purposeful, especially with the optional Rabaconda pro-grade lever set.

These irons have been designed to provide the best experience while being safe for the rims and user, alike. They come as a set of five, and Rabaconda believes this is exactly how many one needs to perform a mousse change in three minutes.

The Rabaconda 3-minute mousse changer can be yours for €276 ($306), while the irons will set you back another €75 ($83). It may sound a bit steep for only one guy, but we're positive that, if you show this to the fellows with whom you ride often, they'll be ready to join you.
