Rockstop Frame Guard
• Impact protection for your motor casing
• Reduce damage from heavy rock strikes
• Downtube protection from trail debris
• Tailgate and bike rack protection
• A universal fitting MTB product
• Easy to fit
An aluminium plate moulded inside the Frameguard reinforces the tough,
shock absorbing polymer material, and also bends the Frameguard to suite
each bike frame.
The high shock absorbing polymer is specially formulated to take on heavy
rock strikes, and avoid shattering the factory fitted motor casing.
Theoverall curvature of Frameguard gives extra volume, to ensure a
seamless fit between the guard and the frame - regardless of bike brand.
This is in 2 parts. There are 4 flexible metal and adhesive tabs that form
and stick to your frame and motor casing, these provide the anchor for
your Frameguard without modifying or damaging your bike in any way.
Velcro straps pass through each of these tabs and also through tracks in the
Frameguard, pulling it neatly and securely against your frame.
This means that undoing the Velcro straps easily releases the Frameguard for
bike cleaning, leaving the tabs and straps in place. To put it back on
simply thread the straps back through the Frameguard and tighten them
Tapers towards your bike frame to give it a seamless finish, and appear as part of the bike.
To avoid the build-up of mud and debris under the Frameguard, these drain
holes will allow water to flow through when washing the bike down
Allows water, mud, and debris to flow through.
Rockstop Frame Guard
The long and short of it...
do you get when you cross a bunch of hardcore mountain bikers with a
bug up their ass about something, and a group of pointy headed polymer
engineers who only get good ideas after a few beers?
Rockstop is the snarling love-child of the Grizedale Mountain Bike Hire
Centre and Urofoam Ltd - experts in all things polyurethane.
Pat (the manager) and the guys
at Grizedale were looking for a different sort of tyre insert, one that
was easier to fit, and that you couldn't tell was there when you were
riding. But it still needed to be tough enough to protect rims and tyres
under hard impacts.
10 miles down the road
is Urofoam - specialists in technical problem solving in industries such
as oil, mining, automotive, and sports. Immediately intrigued by the
challenge the well-oiled machine sprang into action.
It wasn't as easy as it looked.
It took several attempts - lots of alcohol and some regrettable
language - but we got there in the end!
To help test the ideas we
managed to get alongside a fine group of riders who ride-tested the
various versions and gave us their feedback
So everyone got stuck in and Rockstop is the result.
None of this would have happened without Pat and his team, so loads of respect to a genuine Lake District partnership.
