In the accessory box we have the tools needed to make adjustments to the stands, mount bolts for gear leaver support (we are looking at the Logitech G27 deluxe model that comes with the gear leaver support) and a couple of cable ties. The only complaint I have here really is the cable ties, the cheapest thing in the box and yet there are only 2.
Taking the actual stand out of the box, the first thing that came to mind is the weight of the product, it is by no means heavy, but it is not light. Also worth noting though is the impressive build quality which was surprising really, it felt robust and strong and pretty damn solid.
The rear of the product sort of gives you an idea of the layout and how it is supposed to work, there is a heavy front end near where the pedals will go as well as 4 rubbers to help keep it in place, there are also 2 rubbers that can be slid all the way down the two poles to sit under the pedals to give them more stiffness.
Unfolding the stand for the first time is pretty easy thanks to the quick release system, the only thing you need to adjust is the wheel support.
This is done via the spanner and hex key under the wheel support, having this like this, also ensures that you can also set the wheel to the correct angle.
I love the sheer solid feel of the quick release leavers on the product, they feel nice and stiff and also very tough, and this is something that needs to be on a product like this, due to its storing nature. I have to say looking over the stand on first impressions on the product I am pretty impressed, Solid, robust and easy to change angles and height is a great option.
