Kwack Kwack kWacker Rotor Guard!

August 5, 2014

kWacker rotor guard

 

The Kwacker rotor guard started as a dream in Denver, Colorado and manifested into reality in Portland, Oregon. Designed and TIG welded by Whilly Willard (a badass polo player who builds race cars for a living), the Kwacker is made out 5052 aluminum and only weighs 8.9 oz. At this time you can only pick them up in person or over at Hecklers Alley, so either come visit us in Portland or hit up the new one stop polo shop! Use this link HERE to find out more.

Oh, by the way. In case you are wondering, the name comes from the fact that it kind of looks like a duck head and it will protect your rotor from getting kWACKED!

The master of the aluminum (not just aluminum, but aircraft aluminum) bike polo frame, Max Power, has long been a push behind the 26″ movement in the hardcourt world. Even as the sport grows for the better and we see many changes come about in rules and the alike, we still see the great 700c vs 26″ debate, so it’s great to see Max Power offer framesets for people on both sides now.

NA’s one stop polo shop!

Have you ever thought “Dang, I could really use a Northern Standard shaft, a Magic Bike Polo head, and a Fixcraft connect right now.” Before today, you would have to, first, travel back in time to pick up a Northern Standard shaft (R.I.P), and second, spend a lot of money on shipping from three separate websites. Thanks to Hecklers Alley, you know have a one stop polo equipment shop!

Headed up by two of Eugene, Oregon’s greatest dudes (Jordan Bailey and Greg Doctolero), the owners of Hecklers Alley want to make polo shopping easy for you. Currently, their inventory includes products from:

In talking to Jordan Bailey, his hopes is to one day in the near future have everything you’d a future or present bike polo player would need to get on the court. Here is his official press release for the opening of Hecklers Alley:

           With over 20 companies making bike polo specific equipment and a growing market with over 2 new clubs a week registering at leagueofbikepolo.com, hecklersalley.com is proud to announce the opening of the only bike polo specific store on Monday, July 28th.

Hardcourt bike polo is an intense sport that requires its own specified equipment.  The sport started out on retro-fitted fixed-gear bikes and ski-pole and ABS mallets to a game with custom geometry frames, highly-engineered mallets and disc brakes requiring protection from colliding bikes and hard shots.

Hecklersalley.com’s mission is to grow the sport of bike polo by making it easy for players to get the products that they need.  Come opening day, they will have a wide variety of shafts, heads and connector systems for mallet making, balls, top-tube protectors, nard guards and a selection of disc rotor guards for players to choose from.  The ultimate goal is for a new player to get everything they need, from bike to protection, at the website.

By retaining the heckling spirit of players waiting to play, the website will provide reviews and descriptions of the products they are selling.  That same tone will also give visitors news and opinions on its blog.

If you’ve ever been interested in giving bike polo a try, hecklersalley.com is a great start for getting the gear necessary to slay with the finest.

Be sure to add Hecklers Alley to your favorites tab so that you can stay up-to-date with the growth of bike polo’s very own store. Be sure to also LIKE them on Facebook using this LINK.
