Ladies and gents – we’re delighted to say that the Wideopenmag race team will be supported by Unior Tools in 2012.
Unior will make sure that the team have got the tools they need to keep their bikes running at top conditions wherever they are in the world.
They will make sure there’s no scraping around for the right sized allen key or having to borrow tyre levers on race day and that the riders can concentrate on what they do best.
Team mechanic Chaz Curry will be equipped with a full-works 50 piece Unior tool box and workstand and each of the riders will get a personal 15 piece tool kit to keep their Nukeproof bikes fresh between events.
We’ve tested Unior’s kit in the magazine and been super impressed with their durability and no-fuss design. After months of rattling around in webguy Jim’s tool box they (and as a result his bike) are still going strong.
When we met the Unior crew at Raleigh’s tradeshow last year they turned up to be super positive, super friendly guys that loved pushing their brand almost as much as they did pushing their favourite Slovenian tipple ‘žganje’. We only want to work with brands that we trust and have fun with and the Unior guys fitted that perfectly.
- Our 2 man downhill team will race at the UCI World Cup, Halo British Downhill Series, IXS Cup and select UK regional events.
- Our 2 man 4X team will race select 4X Pro Series events and the British 4X Series.
- Our elite DH’er will also ride select enduro events – including the UK Gravity Enduro Series.
Here’s Mechanic Chaz’s armoury of Unior goodies. We’ve got no idea why a man needs 3 hammers – but apparently he does!
Here’s an edit that we filmed with Unior Factory team rider Harry Heath way back in early 2011:
