Let’s face it, v-brakes are out and disc brakes are in.
With players taking the sport more and more seriously, there is no room for taking time off, especially for weather. We all know God Hates Bike Polo, so if you want to show off all 100% of your skills at a tournament, you have to run disc brakes. You wont be able to find yourself in a tournament final if the clouds start pissing downward and you’re running anything but disc brakes.
While disc brakes can be a literal life saver in poor weather conditions, they do come with one huge set back: the rotor. Until the day comes when humans can make a rotor that is lightweight and indestructible, we are stuck adding a guard to our forks to protect our rotors.
The newest guard on the market comes to us from a Canuck known for being a beast on the team Big Country. Henry Norris has been a metal fabricator for the last five years at Pyramid Metal Works, and after not feeling satisfied with the current guards on the market, decided to put his skills to good use. From his skills, we now have the Goon Guard.
These corrosive resistant stainless steel guards will be laser cut for precision and TIG welded for strength. Norris told us that the Goon Guard was designed in such a way that “in the event of a large impact it will bend before it transmits the force of that impact to your disc tab and fork.” After the guard absorbs the impact, it can easily be realigned. This can happen many times without it affecting the strength of the metal.
This guard will only run you $65! If you’re interested in picking up a Goon Guard, or if you have any more questions about it, hit up Henry Norris via email at email@example.com. To stay up to date with the progress of the Goon Guard, follow @pyramidmetalworks on Instagram.
