Bike riding has really been based on speed and style and tricks, but there's a whole other aspect that people are missing out on, and that's sound. I want to hear how fast I'm going and I want to hear volume. Turbospoke is the only company in the industry with that kind of support. I really believe that their product is going to take my riding to a level that has never existed before. -Eric Lawrenuk


Eric and the Turbospoke

We're very enthusiastic about the launch of Team Turbospoke for 2012. Turbospoke has a unique stance in the world of sponsorship because there is no competition. Our product speaks for itself, and our athletes are just as loud and unique. We treat our riders like big kids, and are happy to have Eric on the team. -Andrew Maxwell


Eric and the Turbospoke

With an already strong foothold on the youth market, Turbospoke is expected to sound off in a number of events this year that will propel riders to new audible heights. There are already dozens of other professionals lining up for the industry's best in bike acoustics.

 Now all the groks will see this, think its the shit because he's "running it Wink " and get them. And I, for one, will laugh. Well played, Eric, well played.

 but will it blend ?

 Be fun to be that dick at the races who has one...
  • + 8
 I just ordered one, pumped for races this year.
  • + 53
 can i install on both side of my bike?
  • + 5
 Think of the potential: 4 Turbospokes for each side of your forks and rear suspension. With the fork Turbospokes facing upward towards the rider. That would definitely turn heads.
  • + 9
 Noone is taking this as serious as it truly is... Here is the website www.turbospoke.com/default.aspx They are virtually intended for kids and sold in tons of kids stores. You can also get them online for $22.99. Would be a pretty funny birthday gift for that one friend who already has a crazy nice bike and u have no idea what to get them for their birthday.
  • + 6
 just ordered mine... never looking back!
  • + 4
 Didnt realize that they were actually real. I thought it was a April fools day thing
  • + 6
 They even have this posted on their website lol Oh god, next thing you know all the 12 year olds on here will be showing up at the mountain and parks with one of these thinking Lawrenuk actually signed haha.

 Just what every good racer wants- more weight and more resistance on your wheels. April Fools

 Caution! This product is awesome! HAHA

 just get a hope pro 2
  • + 5
 Or some I9s
  • - 2
 or chris kings or hadleys
  • + 11
 cris kings sound like rc cars at speed so nope! im going to go with hope pro 2 without grease and dual turbospoke
  • + 1
 I thought I'd like my Pro 2 hub at first, and I did. However after riding it for a month I already hated it. Works and looks so good, but it's soo annoying cause it NEVER stops. I saw a cool clutch style hub that has no sound what so ever and NO pedal lag, although it was big and isn't really the focus of this page.
  • + 3
 Pedal more then Wink
  • + 1
 that clutch hub is most likely a true precision stealth hub i've had one for the past few years love it too bits, soo good it's nice having the only sound on your bike being the tyres.
  • + 0
 i hear removing the grease from your freehub is really good for the pawls... idiot...
  • + 1
 well I KNOW its bad for it so i dont, but for those who chose to it makes it way louder.. wannabe

 I bet this is makes it really easy to pick up chicks. chicks love motorbike riders.
  • + 48
 I just ordered one and already got a 2nd girlfriend!!! It didn't even get delivered yet and I am ALREADY getting more chicks.
[Reply]
  • + 16
 As a serious note, I own one, and will put it on for night rides in trail networks where other groups are riding... and then of course not tell anyone i'm doing it. Riding solo i'll encounter groups (who've been hearing this motor noise for awhile), stop as they approach, and see if anyone notices the thing on the bike. I've come out of the woods and back to the parking lot and had folks gossiping if anyone encountered the motorbike or not...

[Reply]

 I'll be honest - I really wished to see one of these strapped to a downhill bike, and these guys made it look even more awesome I have expected! Deffinetely having one!
[Reply]

 hahaha i love how they're falling off their bikes towards the end of the vid =p totally ordering one of those to take me to the next level... watch out danny hart

 I hope I can make it to the toy store before they close, this bad boy is going right on the XC bike. I always hated wearing that orange vest come hunting season and now those damn hikers who love to hate will be forewarned!

I'd grab a second one for the DH rig but already got a fresh pair of Pro 2's, this may be overkill....or not? hmmmm.....

My nephew will love it, once I've gotten my laughs!
[Reply]

 Wow, I need one. My bike will definitely look faster with that beauty.
(thank you pinkbike for making my day...)

 haha...most stupid thing I can think about...but on a second thought...it might look good if you add a stereo ....? and neon? and lambo doors?, and maybe a bigger can?

 Kinda cool like putting a playing card or a soda can in the spokes but come on guys. get a dirt bike if you thrive that noise. Tacky and kinda crazy. Funny tho if I see someone rocking one on a trail. I will look and laugh in fun tho.
[Reply]
  • + 1
 I found myself turning the sound off, the noise sounded like 30 angry wasps. I would hate to hear one of those on the trail. Good riding though, and pretty funny on top
