Constantly packing, unpacking, and transporting their tools from race to race, professional race mechanics need equipment that is light, compact, and easy to carry. Designed with these needs in mind, the Feedback Sports Pro-Ultralight Work Stand meets the demands of any on-the-go mechanic.
By cutting a few inches from the red anodized 6000-series aluminum center tubes, the folks at Feedback Sports created a work stand that collapses into a unit weighing only 10.6 pounds and measuring just 37 inches long when folded. But don’t let the weight and portability fool you -- the Pro-Ultralight’s tripod leg design maintains remains stable on flat and uneven surfaces, and it can hold up to 85 pounds.
Easy to set-up and tear-down, the Pro-Ultralight Work Stand features the award-winning classic Slide-Lock clamp. Using a simple quarter-turn open/close action, the Slide-Lock clamp rotates 360° without bike re-adjustment and possesses a unique torque-amplifying clutch that holds the bike securely -- without the risk of crimping lightweight tubing.
With an adjustable work height of 42 to 71 inches, the lightweight and portable Feedback Sports Pro-Ultralight Work Stand is perfect for the garage, the parking lot, or the trailhead. It weighs 10.6 lbs (4.8 kg) and measures 5 x 6.6 x 36.9" when folded for travel or storage.
This extremely lightweight repair stand is built to professional standards yet weighs only 10.5 lbs. for convenient travel and compact storage.
Nice stand but the clamp could be better. Problem is that you have to turn the clamp 10-15 times while holding the bike which can be a pain but allows for you to select the pressure which is a benefit. Would be better with a spinner as is on the back as you could quickly spin the clamp into position. However, the clamp does its job well once you screw it down. Otherwise a very good stand-stable, light, sets up really quickly and easily, well made. The 360 degree rotation is a real nice benefit (you have don't have to move the stand). Overall good stand. Good experience with Real Cyclist also-shipped quick, no packaging problems. Would buy from again.
You can get the Pro Elite stand with the upgraded clamp. I've been using this clamp since last Christmas, though, and I have to say it does the job just fine. Let's just say, the more you use it, the easier it gets. This is the best $180 bike service stand you can buy, period.
This bike stand is very light and folds up into a compact unit for travelling.
The grips holds the bike securely and doesn't damage the paint.
The only gripe is the mechanism to open and close the grips, I like the concept of the slide and lock, but in reality when holding a bike the grips don't always slide very easily, especially when angled to hold the bike by the saddle post.
