Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Absolute demons. Extremely strong, durable and quick as.
Bought a set of these demons and was not disappointed. They really are the dogs meatballs. Use them everyday, they're insanely light and they stand up to anything - when I say anything I mean anything - took these bad boys on a MTB downhill run for a laugh as I have money to burn and they hit a 20ft drop no questions asked.
I did manage to break them on a small rock though.
Seriously, if you buy a set of these you will feel like Optimus Prime doing a superman seatgrab over the Empire State Building - get em now!!!!
