Schrader tool type head to remove valve core from stems.
Offered in three color choices: Red, Blue, and Orange.
These are a great little item to add to your bike for not a whole lot of money. Will you ride faster, climb better, or wheelie longer than when you didn't have them? No. But they look nice, are very solid, and it's nice to have the valve core remover built right in at tire changing time!
I keep these in my tool pouch to keep clean in case I have to use and have regular black plastic caps on; cheaper than buying separate tool; they are durable enough to use as intended and look cool, but, I had to clean out some mud to use on an emergency repair
Picture shows a nice color blue, recieved them and looks baby boy blue. No o rings in cap. Ugly
I bought these to install on my DRZ 400 that has many blue anodized parts on it. I wanted to eliminate carrying a valve core tool in my trail bag. I already had nice Blue anodized valve caps, that have o rings in them so it was a want purchase more than a need. I recieved them and immediately looked at the faded ugly pale blue anodizing that doesnt look like ANY OTHER blue on any brand anodized parts I have ever seen.. The blue on these caps is cheap looking so I say to myself, well if they have o ring seals in them I will use em. NOPE, no o rings either. Wasted money on these.
I will be honest. I bought these because I need a few dollars to give me.free shipping. They actually saved me money. They are purely bing as they are just vavle caps. The do what they are supposed to do, keep mud out of the valve stems and not be black plastic.
I just put these on my wheels and wow, do they look great! Not only that, I had to use the core remover already. I just put on new tires/tubes and needed to deflate the pressure a bit. When I depressed the core, it got stuck open, bleeding all my air. I just turned this valve cap around reseated the core and I was up and running again. Such a simple part, but it's already served me well.
I really like most tusk products that I have used, but these could be better. They feel a bit scratchy when screwing them on and there isn't any kind of rubber seal like most valve stem caps have. It is nice to have solid aluminum caps instead of coated plastic or solid plastic and I like the blue too, If I needed to get more I wouldn't rule these out, but I would at least look for different ones first.
The core remover on these doesn't work on any of my tires. The hole in the middle is too shallow and it bottoms out before the little fingers can engage. I guess I could put it in the drill press and see if I could make the hole deeper, but I don't know how far I can go before it punches through.
Also, there's no o-ring in these as a stop gap against a leaky valve.
If you don't care about that and just want some bling, then go ahead. Otherwise, there are way better options out there.
I bought these for the sole reason they come in orange(KTM). They look great, have a lot of thread, and have a core remover also. That way I am never without one. With the Tubliss system the threads are almost too deep for the beadlock. The valve stem bottoms on the lock instead of the o-ring. Haven,t had any issues yet so on they stay.
After one trail ride where the core worked its way loose, everyone should carry at least one core remover with them anytime the ride takes you further than just around the cooler. I have had both stainless and brass valve stem caps with core removers but never anodized aluminum. They match my "orange" Warp 9 billet hubs, are very lightweight, and definitely have that bling factor with the added benefit of a core remover. The only thing missing is that my previous caps had a rubber o-ring but this one does not. I haven't tested it by riding through micro-fine dust or deep water yet but the fit might be tight enough without it.
