FIRST RABACONDA RIDERS
In 2011, Reijo Kivelä from the Finnish Motorcycling Federation approached Jakob Saks and asked if he could find someone to manufacture their existing mousse changer in Estonia. It took about 6 months to convince Jakob to look at it. Once he saw it, he also invited his riding buddy, Tõnu Kallast, to take a look. They decided not only to find a manufacturer in Estonia, but to improve on the original design. 18 months later, it was tried and tested by the Finnish Trophy Team at the International Six Days of Enduro in Germany. They simply loved it.
Jakob and Tõnu started to get all kinds of product ideas from their dirt bike friends, and as a consequence decided to start a company that will make innovative motorsport products. A company that helps dirt bike fans turn their ideas into reality and make them available to the whole community. A company that makes a difference to the world of off-road motorsports.
