Self-adhesive Shelter Off-Road protection is a composite shock and scratch resistant transparent compound with visco-elastic behavior. Shelter Off-Road widely increases the shock-resistance of carbon-fiber or metal structures it applied to.
Shelter Off-Road protects from impacts spreading their energy within its structure, is abrasion and solvent resistant, doesnt yellow and has a semi-structural adhesion to the surface it applied onto normal bicycle washing wont affect it, but it can be removed if needed without damaging the underlying paint.
Shelter-Kit Off-Road comes as a sheet with pre-cut elements specific for off-road purposes, to easily protect sensitive frame areas (chain stays, down tube, cable/frame contact points, horizontal tube against brake levers contact).
- Protects against scratches and shocks
- Easy to apply
- Perfect adhesion also on curved surfaces
- Doesnt turn yellow over time
- Visco-elastic behavior reduced vibrations
- Lightweight approx. 39g (total weight of all the elements of the Kit)
The shelter is UV-shielded so it wont turn yellow over time and will even protect the underlying frame paint from UV degradation.
Visco-Elasticity reduces vibrations:
The transmission of vibration energy through any structure can be reduced by introducing visco-elastic materials at discrete points. It exactly what Shelter does, providing stiff carbon frames with protection but also contributing to reducing vibrations.
