Animal‘s Front Hub Guard is finally available. Much like the rear PYN Guard it uses an optional plastic sleeve over an inner metal core that can be run on its own. This front version uses a heat treated chromoly inner rather than the rear which uses an alloy one. These are only compatible with Animal’s Javalin Front Hub and should be available worldwide pretty soon.
Holy shit this is sick.
In celebration of Nigel Sylvester’s 2nd signature watch release with G-Shock, Animal crafted a special edition V3 sprocket limited to 10 pieces. CNC’d from 1/4″ thick 7075 aluminium with laser etched details. Silver polished with black accents including Nigel’s engraved signature. These are made in the U.S.A. by Zodiac Engineering and sadly are not available for retail. Check out more pictures of this beauty over on Animal.
The longer 4.5″ versions of Animal‘s popular Butcher Pegs that we spied earlier this year are finally out. Currently available with Ten Pack in Canada and everywhere else shortly, head over to the Animal site to check out more on the Butchers as well as more new products from the dudes in Jersey.
I’m currently riding the Stolen Silencer Pegs (which ill be reviewing in January) which are also on the longer side (4.4″) and definitely think longer pegs are the way to go in regards to tech peg tricks, they for sure helped with crookeds and tooths.
Head over to The Union to check out an interview the guys at Animal Bikes all about their new MTT (Monster Truck Tire) which will be out in the near future. In other news it looks like they are discontinuing the popular ASM Tire which as been a favourite for many pro riders for some time now.
Be sure to check out The Union next week for the next interview with Animal about their BPE Plastic Pedals.
