Technology / Motorcycle / Rim Lock: Rim locks are used to prevent tires from slipping around motorcycle rims. They are primarily used on off-road bikes and/or any application using low tire pressure for enhancing off-road traction. Aggressive off-road tires or under-inflated tires are prone to slipping on the rim under hard acceleration or braking. In such cases, a rim lock saves the inner tube’s valve stem from damage.
