An ultra-compact and light weight truly portable Aluminium tyre repair tool set especially designed for Adventure and Enduro riders. The Tyre-Pro Set offers you a;
IMPORTANT TO KNOW ABOUT EASTBOUND DESIGN PHILOSOPHY:
The Aluminium components
The Tyre-Pro components are manufactured in the
Netherlands with State of the Art CNC milling machines. All parts are machined from extremely
strong billet 7075 T6 “aerospace" Aluminium. This guarantees maximum durability and strength with minimal weight. All parts are anodized to ensure optimal surface finish.
The various parts can be purchased as a set or separately to ensure you can update your Tyre-Pro tool set to suit your new motorbike.
Over-engineered design of the Tyre-Pro wrenches;
Torqueing a rear axle nut to specs is one thing but breaking it loose when it's seized up, can
be an entirely different story! This can requires torques which significantly exceed the nominal tightening torque which, for most motorcycles, is roughly between 95Nm (70ft-lb) and 110Nm
(81ft-lb). Where other brands of lightweight
aluminium axle nut wrenches are designed for a maximum toque of less than 125Nm (92ft-lb), the Tyre-Pro spanners 17mm and 19mm can easily handle 175Nm (129ft-lb) and the 22mm and up even 225Nm
(166ft-lb) without any deformation, bending or even scratching.
The Eastbound Tools are over-engineered because you want sufficient design margin for those unforseen situations! At the end of the day, you don't want to get stranded in a desolate place with a flat tire and a broken axle nut wrench!
Ultra compact, light weight and truly pocket sized
The most commonly used axle nut spanners, tyre levers and bead breakers are not designed with the emphasis on compactness. They are often too bulky to fit in a tool roll, are difficult to carry on a motorbike with very little storage space, but at the same time they are often too short to be really efficient when used. The Tyre-Pro Set solves these paradoxal requirements and is truely pocket size and yet provides full size spanners, tire levers and a patented (pending) powerful bead breaker. It is packed in two small pouches of only 16 x 9cm (6.3" x 3.6"). With roughly the size of a smartphone, each pouch weights only +/- 275 grams (0.60 lbs/9.7 oz). This allows easy storage in jacket pockets or even in inner pockets, very useful for day rides when you don't carry luggage but also for longer trips and adventure rides when space and weight are at a premium. The choice for two pouches is driven by storage flexibility; two smaller pouches are easier to stow away than one larger pouch.
The Tyre-Pro set is not only lighter and much more compact than any other comparable tool set (there is no comparable tool set really!) but it is also much more efficient and easier to use due to its longer levers. The Tyre-Pro set comes with four lever sections of 13,5cm (5.3") which can be assembled in various combinations. The lever sections are common for the axle nut ring spanners, the bead breaker and tyre spoons. Using common lever sections for all applications reduces the size, volume and weight of the tools significantly and eliminates carrying around unnecessary bulk.
With the available lever sections you can assemble the following tool length combinations;
Even with normal tyre tools, removing a wheel, breaking the tyre bead, removing the tyre from the rim for replacement or fix a flat tube can be a very tough job, particularly in the field.
With the Eastbound Tyre-Pro set-up all of these tough jobs suddenly get a whole lot easier.
The Patented (pending) Bead Breaker Design
The Tyre-Pro bead breaker is an innovative and uniquely designed tool element which joins the two tire spoons and creates a powerful bead breaker plier with the
functionality, dimensions and power of professional shop tools. The Tyre-Pro bead breaker set combines long powerful levers with a plier opening span of 35mm (from closed to fully open).
Conventional travel bead breaker tools have a much smaller span (approx. 15mm) and much shorter levers, making the bead breaking on many tyres still very difficult.The Tyre-Pro set will break the
bead on any motorcyle tyre.
Road side tyre repairs don't get any easier
than with the Tyre-Pro set

Tyre-Pro 13mm-3/8" square drive set
The 13mm Tyre-Pro adapter together with the 3/8" square drive convertor opens up the possibility of using the Tyre-Pro lever sections on a wide range of 3/8"
square drive tools, metric sockets, inch sockets or Torx bit sockets to service for instance BMW R1200GS brakes or change a rear tire. The high quality chromium steel 3/8" square drive adapter can also be used separately as a socket drive due to its "knurled coin" edge. The Tyre-Pro 3/8" square drive set can be converted to a 1/2" or 1/4" square drive, if so desired, with standard commercially available convertors. The 13mm adapter can
of course also be used as a 13mm spanner, albeit that the head size of the adapter will impose some restrictions on the use as a regular 13mm spanner. Note; the 3/8" square drive insert does not
have a ratchet function.
The Tyre-Pro adapter set eliminates the necessity to carry very heavy solid steel ratchets or wrench breaker bars to work with metric, inch and Torx bits sockets or any other type of sockets.
The Tyre-Pro adapter is capable of handling torques up to 175Nm (130ftlb)
19mm to 1/2" square drive insert
The 19mm - 1/2" square drive insert is an option with the 19mm Tyre-Pro spanner. It give you the option to use 1/2" square drive socket. The high quality
chromium steel 1/2" square drive adapter can be used separately as a socket drive due to its "knurled coin" edge. Note; the 1/2" square drive insert does not have a ratchet function.
This insert eliminates the necessity to carry very heavy 1/2" solid steel ratchets or wrench breaker bars to work with 1/2" metric, inch and Torx bits sockets or any other type of sockets.
The Tyre-Pro spanner with the 19mm - 1/2" square drive insert is capable of handling torques up to 175Nm (130ftlb)
The WheelWedge is another unique but very simple and efficient Eastbound tool to single-handedly reinstall a motorcycle (rear) wheel without any effort. Reinstalling a rear motorcycle wheel all by yourself is often a struggle because you have to handle more wheel parts and elements simultaneously than you got hands available.
You need to;
The WheelWedge is made of anodized aluminium flat bar (6082 T6) which is fitted with two adapter stubs designed to connect with the Tyre-Pro tire levers. The flat bar ties the two tire levers together into a convenient wedge which eliminates the necessity to handlift the wheel into position. Instead you push/kick the WheelWedge under the wheel, from back to front (with one foot or otherwise) thus lifting the wheel in a controlled manner and freeing up your hands to guide the spacers and rotor and align wheel axle hole and swing arm axle holes. With the WheelWedge you can align the axle holes very precisely and put the rear axle bolt back in place without any heavy lifting.
The WheelWedge is also very effective as an impromptu bead lock during reinstallation of a tire. The WheelWedge fits firmly between tire and rim and pushes the tire bead in the recessed center / well of the rim while you work the bead on other side of the tire over the rim edge with the Tyre-Pro levers. The impromptu bead-lock prevents that the already positioned tire bead is pulled out again due to the applied tension on the other side of the rim. The WheelWedge-BeadLock works on spoked rims as well as on cast wheels.
