RSC dropped a new product last month, an adjustable subcage, branching out from their core product, easy-pull clutches. We haven't had the chance to see the subcage in person, so we asked Tigroo who has spent a few sessions riding with it to give us his thoughts.

Review: Subcages are a must have when it comes to stuntriding nowadays, allowing you to trust your rear pegs for trick combination, jumping from and landing on the pegs.
This product steps up the game a little higher than what has been done before, bringing fully adjustable pegs plus a solid and durable conception/construction, and it can be swapped from one bike to another just by changing a set of spacers. Each part is made of billet Aluminium, except the oversized pegs made of delrin, covered with safety grip.
All parts are individually packed, machining quality is top notch, bolts and nylon nuts are of course included to mount it on the bike. Mounting on the bike has been a real good surprise, knowing my subframe is a bit bent I was afraid it wouldn’t fit perfect. I was wrong, it took me less than 15 minutes to have it all dialed in and tightened.
One thing to keep in mind: Those subcages are not designed for side exhausts (due to the adjustable pegs) but my original exhaust "belt exhaust hanger" worked perfect just by sliding it a little lower on the exhaust.
Overall, and to sum it up, I think this is by far the last subcage your bike will ever need. The construction makes them act like a secondary crash cage and plastic pegs will be absorbing a lot of energy. The oversized pegs feel very comfy and provide a reassuring grip! Didn't gave them a try yet in the rain but I’m sure it will be great too!!
