Unlike conventional kickstands that are heavy, ugly, permanent, and unusable by modern design, the Upstand™ is fully detachable, lightweight, and usable on most bicycles.
The tab on you bike weighs 15 grams and the stand itself weighs approximately 25 grams. The total weight is the same as a single gu packet.
Embedded in the carbon is a strong 6.5 pull pound axial magnet (rare earth magnet).
Simply fold the stand in half (shock cord ) and stow it in your seat bag or 3 panel jersey pocket. It is only 8.0″ long (standard model) and weighs less than an energy pack.
Or you can use our Upclip and store your Upstand right on your bicycle! The Upclip simply installs on your existing water bottle bolts and gives you the option of quickly snapping your Upstand onto your bicycle! Check out the Upclip here.
Not at all! The Upclip sits beneath your water bottle cage is nearly invisible when both are installed!
It will take less than 30 secs. Simply slide out the rear skewer, hang the 15 gram tab on the skewer, slide it back in and tighten. That’s it. Even in the event of a rear flat, the tab will stay there.
Also yes! Let us know in your order comments during checkout so we can ship the proper bored tab.
Yes. If you would like to get an extra tab for your Upstand, it will only cost $5 at the time of your order. Simply find the the Upstand model (Standard, 20″, or 29″) you’re purchasing on our site and select the option “with Extra Tab” from the list of choices. If you would like to order an additional tab(s) sometime in the future, a standalone purchase costs $7 per tab (includes shipping in the US).
