Bicycle frame protection

Cruising down the trails, feeling the wind in your hair, and conquering obstacles – there's nothing quite like the thrill of riding a bicycle. However, every adventure takes a toll on your trusty two-wheeler. This is where Armour-Ride steps in, a guardian angel for your bike's frame protection. In this article, we'll delve into the remarkable world of Armour-Ride and explore how it shields your bike from wear and tear, transporting you through the ins and outs of its effectiveness, and debunking any doubts you may have had.

Unveiling the Armour-Ride Shield: An Overview

The Armour-Ride protection system is not just a mere shield; it's your bicycle's ultimate armor against the forces of wear and damage. Here's a closer look at how it works and its benefits.

The Impact of Long-Term Usage

One of the most common questions riders have is whether Armour-Ride's frame protection truly stands the test of time. To address this, we recently decided to peel off a Full Custom Kit that had been securely in place for a few years. The outcome? Astonishingly impressive results 

Defying the Odds of Wear

Even if you pamper your bike like royalty, sticking to gentle green trails, and shower it with post-ride cleanliness, your bike's frame and fork are not immune to the march of time. After just one season of enthusiastic riding, signs of wear are bound to peek through. 

Transportation Hazards

Transporting your bike can be a perilous journey for its frame. Placing it on a tailgate pad, bike rack, or in the back of a van exposes it to every jolt and vibration of the road. Regardless of whether you're part of team carbon or team alloy, this friction leaves its mark over time, revealing unsightly paint chips, scrapes, and other cosmetic imperfections.

Trail Treasures: Scratches and Scuffs

Maybe you're one of the fortunate ones with a stellar trail network right at your doorstep, obliterating the need for transportation. However, the act of pedaling itself can bring forth an unexpected challenge. Rubbing against the top tube, chainstay, and seatstay gradually erodes the factory finish, rendering your frame with an uneven, polished appearance.

Battle Against Debris

Think about the airborne debris that gets kicked up from the ground and launched right at your downtube and rear triangle. Whether you're tearing up dirt jumps, exploring trails, gravel paths, or even cruising on the road, evading the onslaught of dirt, dust, and gravel is an impossible feat.

Conclusion: Where Protection Meets Transformation

In the world of cycling, the inevitable march of time can bring forth unwanted changes to your bike's frame. Scratches, scuffs, and wear patterns seem inevitable, but with Armour-Ride, the narrative takes a turn. This exceptional protection system defies the odds, shielding your bike against the elements, transportation hazards, and the battle against debris. So, whether you're a devoted trail explorer or a casual cyclist, Armour-Ride isn't just a shield; it's your bike's ticket to a timeless transformation.
