Spend more time riding, less time storing and retrieving your bike.

How they work.

Multi-directional Wheels  

Unlike a conventional swivel caster, the rotacaster™ multi-directional wheel does not swivel about a pivot point, yet still provides full 360 degree mobility while maintaining a fixed orientation. This allows the load to be safely levered or pivoted off the wheel without any rapid load shift due to rotation about a swivel offset.


rotacasters™ also provide substantially improved load stability, as it maintains a fixed relationship between the center of gravity of the bike and the wheelbase. In addition, the fixed orientation and differential of the primary wheel to roller diameter ensures better directional tracking in a chosen direction (i.e. have you pushed a shopping trolley or swivel wheel cart recently?).

This adds up to a more stable, more maneuverable, more predictable, safer and faster method to store and retrieve your bike.

Other Advantages

  • The 125mm (5") wheels make traversing tiled floors, concrete expansion joints and other imperfections easier than smaller wheels. 
  • non-marking polyurethane rollers ensure no marking or scrubbing of floor surfaces.

Everyday use 

Where you step off your bike is no longer important. Our stands allow you to easily move the bike to an out-of-the way location: against a wall, between cars in the garage, or even through the doorway of a storage room. With the bike held in an upright position, the bike takes up even less space. And the removable handle on the rear stands lets you really tuck the bike into a corner. Next time you need it, the bike can be simply pulled out, rotated, and away you go.

Workshops, dealerships, Collectors

Moving multiple bikes around in the showroom or workshop to get to the one you want is safe, quick and easy.

At work

With commercial space a premium, parking areas can be used more efficiently increasing vehicle storage capacity.

Will this work with my bike?

We have a rear stand for bikes with a conventional swingarm and pickup spools, and a stand for bikes with a single-sided swingarm and a hollow rear axle (left-hand or right-hand entry).

The front stand is universal, compatible with virtually all road-going motorcycles (17” or 19” wheels)

Simple two step process

STEP 1     Fit the rear stand

The rear stand lifts the tyre off the floor and holds the bike in a stable upright position.

STEP 2     Fit the front stand

The front stand simply lifts the tyre off the ground.  Both ends of your bike can now move in any direction. 

If you're unsure which rear stand suits your bike please get in touch. We are happy to help.

Additional Features

Safety bar

The handle on the rear stand doubles as a safety bar preventing the stand from unloading during motion, or simply for peace of mind while your bike is unattended.

Closed loop pickup, right hand side

A simple solution to an age-old problem: the closed loop for the pickup on the right hand side of the rear double stand means you don’t have to balance the bike with one hand while you’re juggling the stand with the other.

Quick adjust pickups

The spool outriggers on the rear double stand have a simple self-tensioner, eliminating the knobs and screws. The outriggers are reversible so bikes with spools that are very high or very low are accommodated.

Strong, simple design

Robust one-piece construction, no complex mechanisms, no modification to the bike. Patents pending.

Compact and Versatile

If you take your bike to the race track, our rear stands are the perfect replacement for a conventional paddock stand. If you have more than one bike, you can easily adapt your rear stand for different bikes, and the front stand works on virtually all road bikes.

High quality product, high-tech manufacture

We chose to use high quality materials and state of the art manufacturing, with partners we know and trust. High quality steel precision tube, CNC laser cutting, CNC bending, robot welding. Our products are made in Brisbane, Australia.

Why we’re on Kickstarter

We are well beyond proof of concept, having had several pre-production units in the real world, with good feedback. After many months of prototypes, redesigning, trials, refining, arranging suppliers, everyone’s happy and we’re ready to go into production.

Kickstarter is a crowd funding community where product creators set a funding goal and deadline. We’re on Kickstarter to raise funds to build our first batch of stands in volume, and to do that we need to build jigs, program CNC machines, and buy bulk material.

Between us, we have many years’ experience in a wide range of industries and markets. But we don’t know everything, which is why we team up with like-minded and enthusiastic people who are experts: material suppliers, fabricators, machinists, machine programmers, logistics, bike nuts. We also believe in working with local partners so we have greater surety and control of product.
