Rather hear Roost than chain Slap?
These guys are kindly supporting our riders with the gift of silence, so that they can focus in on what’s important . The sound or tearing terrain.
YOU CAN WIN A STFU SETUP TOO! IN OUR UPCOMING RAFFLE!
Developed in collaboration with downhill mountain bike legend, Chris Kovarik in Whistler BC. Designed to keep your bike quiet and efficient whilst minimizing wear.
The STFU Bike drive-train dampers contain your chain when things get rough - preventing chain slap and noise from your frame but also preventing your chain from over-extending sideways - decreasing wear and extending chain life.
Under tension from pedaling the chain remains completely clear of the STFU Bike units for complete efficiency.
STFU Bike is a collaboration between two aussie mates living in Whistler, Canada.
Chris Kovarik is a multiple world cup downhill winner, still holding the biggest winning margin in DH racing history of 14 seconds against 2nd place Cedric Gracia at Fort William in 2002. Chris has put his bikes and equipment to the test and continues to do so. After many years of fine tuning his machines, he began to search for ways to eliminate noise. After 7 years of experimenting with zip ties, velcro, strips of rubber, PVC piping, rubber O-rings and other materials he could find, the idea for our STFU devices was born.
Jaan Hurditch and Chris met in Australia riding and racing DH bikes in the early 2000’s. Jaan is a mechanical engineer who has worked in the motorsports and mountain bike industry designing components for Vorsprung Suspension in Whistler among others. Jaan and Chris got talking about Chris's quest to shut his bikes up and a new concept he had been working on over a beer at the GLC in Whistler one summer afternoon in 2018.
One 3D printer, a bunch of CAD and prototypes, 2 seasons in whistler bike park and this is the end result.
We hope you like it as much as we do.
The complete range of STFU drivetrain damping devices are designed to keep your bike running quiet and efficient while minimizing wear. Cheers.
