Looking for extra protection for your bike fork air shaft when removing the retaining clip? Want to be sure you don’t scratch the air shaft of your fork while proceeding with its maintenance? This simple tool will protect your MTB fork air shaft while removing the retaining clip.

Just slide the Protector onto the fork air shaft and use it to lean the retaining clip on it. Slide the Air Shaft Protector and the retaining clip simultaneously and voilà! Depending of the retaining clip pliers you have, you may also simply keep holding the retaining clip with your pliers while using the Air Shaft Protector. It’s that easy.

Our Air Shaft Protector is made of flexible “soft touch” thermoplastic elastomer material, which will protect your bike fork air shaft. It also gives it:

  • Excellent resistance to use and abrasion.
  • Excellent chemical, grease and oil resistance.
  • Very good structural and dimensional stability.

Our Air Shaft Protector, and all Momentum Cycle tools, are proudly developed and made in Canada. The Air Shaft Protector is precisely manufactured using 3D print technology.

Instructions and Guidelines

Please refer to our How-tos and guidelines page for some hints on our tools and your maintenance.

Note there is no need to over torque and that excessive force should never be used for any of our tools.


  • Flexible “soft touch” thermoplastic elastomer.
