The vast majority of bike protectors on the market are simple films with a low thickness and without any damping abilities against mechanical impacts. Among them are poor performers that peel off, crack, rub through or damage your bike´s paintwork over time. Our new line of protectors makes the difference!
 

+++ Highest damping properties on the market against mechanical impacts

+++ Wide range of kits for every frame size and application area

+++ Invisible clear film with self-repairing surface - no scratches visible

+++ High conformability to complex frame shapes, easy mounting & reliable bond

+++ Recyclable PUR-plastics (100% PVC-free) with plastic-free packaging
 

FLECTR GRAVEL GUARD is manufactured from todays market´s most high-grade protection material which is usually used for special purposes in the aviation and automotive industry. With its superior damping properties, a thickness of 0.36 mm (14 mils) and a transparent, medium gloss surface, FLECTR GRAVEL GUARD covers the sensitive sections of your bike nearly invisible. Its adhesive provides a reliable bond under all environmental conditions and can be removed after years without residues.

FLECTR GRAVEL GUARD resists any impact - hard attack with a sharp screwdriver without any effects.

Risks and challenges

We have served 2.000 satisfied Kickstarter-backers already in 2016, so we know what a reliable fulfillment means. Nevertheless, technical or temporal delays may occur. FLECTR GRAVEL GUARD is manufactured in Germany - actually just an hour away from our workshop. We have a well established relation to our suppliers and are able to take a look at the production process at any time. If temporal delays occur, we will do our best to care for these in a timely manner without any loss of quality. As a backer you will be kept informed. We are delighted you decided to support us.
