How do you feel about changing your motorcycle’s tires? We enjoy it! But it wasn’t like this few years ago. Back in 2012 Jakob and Tõnu were two enduro-riding buddies who loved the sport but got really dispirited when the time came to change tires. Eventually, instead of forever regularly agonizing about it they took on the challenge to turn changing tires into a quick and easy job. After some trial and error, they came up with a tool that enabled 3-minute tire changes regardless if it was air tube, tubeless or bib-mousse. With this tool it took them exactly 3 minutes to change a desert tire with a mousse insert. Obviously, they named it a 3-Minute Tire Changer.
Since 2012, more than 12,000 riders have changed their attitude towards tire changing after using Rabaconda 3-Minute Tire Changer. Today Rabaconda is changing riders lives all around the world 3 minutes at a time. But don’t take our word for it. Watch what others have to say.
The Rabaconda story has an unusual twist. After taking our first product out of the garage and selling it to more than 50 countries, we have met many riders like us who have invented some great dirt bike stuff. We have witnessed the potential of crowd creation and decided to make a difference in the world of motorcycles. Rabaconda’s mission is to turn riders’ own designs into real products and make them available to the whole motorcycle community worldwide. We collect and nurture rider innovation by providing product development and marketing know-how, production and a global sales channel. Thus the tagline Rider developed designs!
And in case you are wondering where the Rabaconda name comes from… Rabaconda is a mythical or possibly even a prehistoric snake-kinda-creature that breeds near off-road trails on every human inhabited continent.
