Product Feature -Flex Shield and Flex Shield PLUS Flexible Bicycle Downtube Protector
Bike frames come in all different shapes and sizes, so we had to design a downtube protector which would work no matter what the tube shape. The Flex Shield is designed to offer more flexibility at the bottom bracket area than our standard downtube protectors. The material is a 1.25 mm polyurethane dome which has been optimized by design and thickness to work better for tubes that curve in two directions, such as round alloy downtubes and carbon tubes that curve towards the bottom bracket. Our standard downtube protectors work best when applied to flat carbon tubes or large diameter alloy tubes.
The PLUS version includes an extra piece - we've added a 10"x2" Lite Shield protector which you apply to your frame first and then apply the domed protector over top. This adds an extra layer of protection and eliminates the chance that a rock might damage the frame between the cutouts.
The Flex Shield and Flex Shield Plus are an excellent choice for Moutain, Gravel, Road, Commuter and even E-bikes to protect your expensive frame against trail and road debris! Customer feedback on the Flex Shield has been awesome! See more about the Flex Shield and Flex Shield PLUS here.
