No, I'm not going to call these "Rim Jobs" so quit asking!
If you're a fan of TFL, you know we ride our boards tough and tend to break the hell out of em'! Well after countless shattered rims, we finally decided to do something about it. Life Savers are poured from the same material as our Kush line of footpads, so you know they can take a hit and bounce back. They take a beating so your hub doesn't have to. $55 for protection, or $550 for replacement, the choice is yours. TFL Life Savers give your rim (and your wallet) a fighting chance.

-o- If you're having trouble installing Float Life Savers, heat them up a bit with a heat gun/blow dryer/oven and that will make them a touch stretchier -o-
The rim jobs are great! Not worried about landing on rocks as much or slamming down on my board with lower PSI. Just nice knowing there’s something else there to possibly help.
My board is my everything and with this great product my everything is being protected from head to toe.
I tried to get the rim jobs on myself, but definitely recommend using a friend to help spread them wide. After a good stretching, they puckered right back up tight around the edges and look like they aren't going anywhere for a long time
Always wear protection
Another unique and needed invention from The Float Life! Installation wasn’t too bad and they look great! It’s very nice to have added security while crushing some trails and learning some new techniques!
