Cobra tubes are coming

November 28, 2009

From : Yes, it looked like this moment was never going to come but it did. After 5 years of fighting, the cobra tubes are available. They have already arrived in some countries like Japan and Taiwán and others will receive them in the coming weeks.

We´ll make a video soon explaining the faster way to mount them but meanwhile here are some instructions that we made for the boxes. It shows the best way to mount them in case you have a brake. If you don´t use a brake, it´s so easy it doesn´t even need explanation

Available in 20″, 24″ and 26″
