Welcome to the 2016 Racer X Online Actually Fun Gift Guide. We're attempting to make mundane Christmas gift shopping into something cool—starting with the fact that motocross gifts are the best gifts of all. Try RacerXBrand.com to get your shopping list going this year, then check out some other cool products.
Okay, motocross bikes are cool because they don’t have kickstands. Kickstands just aren't cool. They don’t run ‘em on high-end bicycles either, right?
So it’s cool not to have a kickstand on your motocross bike (also safer and lighter) but that also means you have to throw this giant box into your truck to go riding. It’s called a stand. And you have to lift your 200-some pound muddy bike onto that stand when you’re done with your moto and are really tired. Aliens would look down on this process and realize we’re ripe for the pickings. This is the best we could come up with?
Polisport might save the whole human race, then. The Foldable Lift Bike Stand is exactly what it says it is. It’s foldable! Like, it folds. It even has a nice carrying handle so you can throw it in your truck or carry it while riding your bike through the pits with one hand much easier than the traditional stand. Then the bike stand’s foot pedal will help to elevate the motorcycle with minimal effort. Its structure is strong, and fully reinforced with a metal frame, making the stand handle up to 440 pounds. The stand retails for $119.99. You’ll wish you had invented it, its use is so obvious.
Polisport, by the way, is a legend in the plastic market, so it has some other innovative products like the Ignition Cover Protector. For $34.99 you can protect your ignition cover from impacts and scratches, which will make your bike look so much better when you put it on Craigslist at the end of the riding season. But you’re not including the stand in the bike sale. That’s a keeper. To buy both of these products, visit Polisport.com
