The new Black™ Pro Range has landed. Be the first to get yours here! In October 2012 the Black™ Research & Development Team came to us with an idea. They called it the Black™ Pro Range. We weren’t exactly sure what they were getting at. We knew they’d been producing quality clothing and accessories for years, but we also knew that they’d never tried anything like this before. After a big-wigs scrum down at GhostBikes.com HQ we finally agreed to stock the full range. And then the metaphorical clock began to tick. And tick. And tick.
But then, after months of waiting the guys at Black™ finally delivered the Pro Range, and my God are they on to something special with this one. Featuring a whole host of premium quality motorcycle maintenance products, the range was designed with only one thing in mind: Stand out from the crowd. Each product features the elegant Black™ brand plate. Hand crafted from lightweight aluminium, each plate is embossed with the Black™ logo as well as the golden statue of manufacturing excellence. The stylish black and red colour scheme means that you truly can stand out from the crowd, letting everyone know that you’re part of the world’s Pro Range of bikers.
I’m going to focus on a few of the products to give you a feel for the range.
The first is the B5066, a heavy duty aluminium rear paddock stand. Boasting a lightweight frame and a pair of high grip rubber compound wheels, the B5066 is a quality edition to anyone’s garage. Poly-Core Technology ensures the wheels are always moving freely, providing balanced movement when using the stand. ‘A-Frame’ uprights add strength and stability, and go hand in hand with the advanced grade aluminium box section. A knurled grips aids control and the width of the stand is adjustable thanks to the grub screws. Bobbin hooks are included with this beauty as standard, meaning you needn’t have to worry about buying extra bits of kit. Available for just £64.99.
Secondly we have the B5069, an MX lift stand like no other. Constructed from heavy duty premium steel, the B5069 has a high density grip pad for added stability. A max load of 160kg means that the stand can be used with even the heaviest of bikes without any hint of it buckling or moving. The stand is fitted with a screw pan as standard, making it a mechanics best friend; ideal for quick jobs and long hard maintenance sessions. The ergonomic wheel runner means that the stand moves freely and easily, so there’s no need for lots of lubricant. The durable rubber handle also means that you’ll be able to manoeuvre the stand with maximum grip too. Get yours for £34.99.
The third and final product I’ll be giving you an insight into is the B5074. This beast is a floating trolley frame AND a rear paddock stand all rolled into one. The tri-rolling trolley with 360 degree pivoting wheel mechanism allows you to control your bike with precision like never before. The Tri-Wheel Lock Technology allows you to hold the stand in position to ensure your bike stays exactly where you want it at all times. The paddock stand is the same as the standard B5072 and can easily be detached and used as a stand-alone rear paddock stand. The dual density rubber wheel construction means that the stand is well supported from the ground upwards, making it nimble and easy-moving. Fancy it? £69.99 is what you’ll need.
And that’s not all. The latest whispers coming out of the Black™ camp are that they’ve got something even bigger ready to drop in early 2014. We heard the words “limited edition” and “helmets” together in the same sentence and got very excited, but I’m afraid that’s all I can say until later this year.
If you haven’t had chance to look at some of our Black™ Biker Clothing yet, take a few minutes out of your day to cast an expert eye over some truly excellent products.
Until next time round, keep those knees down.
