RideWrap Announces Updated Universal Fit Bike Protection Options

Apr 17, 2020
by RideWrap HQ  


Nobody wants to think about their bike getting thrashed, we would rather ride!

By now, most of us know that adding RideWrap protection can preserve your bike and your investment. When protecting your bike you are inherently increasing aesthetics, longevity, resale value, and most importantly - your peace of mind.

The Collective Series, our range of universal fit products, offers several degrees of protection to match your needs. This ensures that riders can take advantage of bike protection no matter the style of bike or budget!

For 2020 we are excited to announce that we have updated a slew of the products; expanding, redesigning, and adding products that are ready to bear the brunt of destruction while riding your bike.

Covered Protection

Covered Protection kits offer leading coverage within their category. They are designed around one concept, maximum coverage with minimal trimming.

Covered Protection is intended to protect high-risk areas of your bike from scratches, chips, small dents, and scuffs caused by trail debris, rocks, cable rash, heel or ankle rub, and other environmental elements that are thrown into the mix when out on the trails or road. A Covered Protection frame kit includes pieces for your toptube, downtube, seatube, 4-stays, and a bunch of extras.

Bikes are unique. For 2020 we have expanded the Covered Protection range to offer protection that is specific to each frame style. While each kit provides coverage for the key areas of the frame, piece geometries are tweaked against our extensive library of data to ensure that each specific frame type is taking advantage of our max coverage with minimum trimming design ethos.

Frame Styles Available:
• MTB / Dual-Sus
• eMTB
• Hardtail MTB
• Steel MTB
• Road & Gravel

When you buy a RideWrap protection kit, you are set up for a successful install.

With every kit, we include the installation tools required to complete the job along with easy to follow instructions and diagrams. New for 2020, we now include install solution concentrate, the slippy stuff that makes it easy to reposition your pieces, with each kit.

Our goal is that riders can easily do a great install at home and get back out on the trails with a protected bike. If anyone ever has questions about the install, we have a commitment to real customer support via phone and email.


Protection kits are available in both Matte or Gloss finish and feature self-healing film, stain-resistance, optical clarity, and durability. Each protection kit includes pre-install cleaning wipes, install solution concentrate, a squeegee, a microfiber, and stickers; all that riders need to provide themselves is a spray bottle.

$65 USD / $80 CAD / €70 incl. VAT

Shuttle Armor

The Shuttle Armor is a mainstay for riders throwing their bike on the back of the truck for ‘just one more lap’. Protecting your downtube against the abrasion of a tailgate pad, these stick-on polyurethane protectors are gluttons for punishment.

For 2020, we have refined the Shuttle Armor’s design. The profile has been tweaked to maximize long term adhesion on any downtube shape and the styling has been updated while maintaining the same great durability.
RideWrap Shuttle Armor

Available in Matte Black

$20 USD / $25 CAD / €20 incl. VAT

Chainstay Armor

New for 2020, the Chainstay Armor offers a soft rubber compound to soak up those harsh hits from the chain. We supply more than enough so that you can also apply to areas of acute wear that you think might need added protection.

The roll of material offers a ton of value at 50mm x 1000mm allowing you to fine-tune your protection needs. Trim to fit, create a notched noise attenuator, or wrap up a tube for 360 coverage; one roll is going to allow you to add some protection to a couple of areas on a couple of bikes.

 I've been very happy with the full coverage Ride Wrap kit I installed on my Commencal. I installed it when the bike was new and after a season of riding it still looks like new.

 I've had multiple bikes wrapped in this stuff and wouldn't dream about going sans RideWrap. (There's a joke in there somewhere). Such a small investment with massive upsides. The resale of your bike alone is worth the spend. Then there is the protection side of things. Truck shuttle pads are cool and all but your frame still gets murdered by rubbing dirt and trips down long gravel roads. The shuttle armor works like a charm.

 The joke is don’t be a fool, wrap your tool.

 After Ride Wrapping my bike once - I would never ride a bike again without wrapping it! Thanks to Ride Wrap I have no chips in my paint, my bike looks so fresh and its is so much easier to clean my bike each ride. The custom wrap fits around the frame so perfectly, you can't even notice it is there. So stoked to check out the new products! If you haven't wrapped your bike, do it now.

 When I purchased my used bike it had a few chips and scratches but after getting it wrapped, it looks top notch and you can barely notice the scratches. Would definitely recommend wrapping your bike even if it isn't brand new (especially if you're a crashlete). Also, their customer service is great - quick and clear responses!

 My tailored kit has already saved my new Evil Offering from a rock that was wedged in between the front and rear triangle on my last ride. I have no idea how long it was there but the wrap was mangled and my frame was mint! I know if I was to try and install my own generic wrap I would not have covered the area the rock was wedged in. Pretty stoked already and the bike is less than 10 rides old.

 Do you offer replacement pieces for your tailored kits? I have a piece I would like to redo. I love the product! easy to follow instructions too!

 We certainly do. Just ping our customer service team an email and they will get you all the details. The whole service is subsidized including shipping to keep your bike looking sweet!

 @RideWrap: like an entire section replacement?! thats good to keep in mind when my chain/seat stays get jacked up

Ya, just keep your little diagram (no biggie if not) and send us an email with the numbers you'd like to purchase, our team will calculate material usage and go from there! Try to make it easy and reasonable to keep your bike looking spiffy

 And people wonder why small businesses go under. Arsehole comments like some of the above. You know when you need 'something' and you can't source it, that's because the guy who was making it is now out of business because of stupid comments about how you can buy it cheaper somewhere else without actually knowing the full details. I doubt they just go to Walmart, buy crap and sell it for 3x the price. Sheesh.

 i got the tailored fit for my megatower and absolutely love it!! the only spots you can see are the areas where i didnt get the edges down all the way and collected dirt.. best thing is it makes the bike so much easier to clean, its like the dirt just falls right off

 I just put the covered hardtail kit on last night! Great product, requires patience to install but after is near invisible.

 well worth the purchase, might recommend having them install it for you though

 its not too bad to install yourself, though the rear triangle may take some time with unique curves and whatnot! took me about 3x longer to wrap my rear triangle than my front triangle, this is on a megatower. good learning experience though, the next bike will be so much easier

 Super happy with RideWrap on my bikes. It works great!!!

 I used to just let my bikes get beat up. I usually keep them until them break. I found myself wrapping my new frame with heli tape and now I'm disappointed in myself. If it peels off I'm not going to repair it. What a sheep I am. Finally changed up from 26" to something modern and now I'm taping my frame. What's next? Probably a zip tie fender and a fanny pack... Shoot me now.

 Can we get them installed if we're in the neighborhood?

 Tons of dealers getting on board across the world. In Whistler, along with some of the local shops, we do offer install service and book via email!

 @RideWrap What is your advice for bikes that have mixed finishes - some parts are matte and others are gloss - do your tailored kits mix and match pieces where applicable?

 They should offer this OEM on new bikes.

 @dangerdan1: WIDER? Dafuq you smoking. you can literally buy a roll of 3M scotch guard that is 36" wide. This is literally all ride wraps, Lizard skin, all mountain protection, etc does. They insert the roll and cut out the decals in a special printer.

Ride wraps exist because we all all lazy f*cks who don't want to waste time making our own templates.

 @Happypanda1337: Stoencha, and my response, was talking about the Chainstay Armor. Not the protection kits.

RideWrap also includes all the install tools, which others dont, including going to buy 3m. A product is more than the sum of its individual materials.

 @dangerdan69: Install tools? So are you saying they some give you exactly 3 drops of baby shampoo and a spray bottle for that 3" squeegee? I don't think so.

Not knocking the company. They fill a niche that people have a desire for. There are just cheaper options to accomplish the same exact thing. Scotch gard for the your frame. Squeegee, baby shampoo, and spray bottle from walmart, CVS, or amazon.

You want a chainstay protector or a down tube protector. Many options. Old tire, flex pipe conduit, custom mold rubber with a high durameter, thermal plastic, or 3M film. You put an old grip around that area it will still be cheaper than a 20 EU guard.

heres a link to the great site in North America. You want thermal plastics cool they have it. chainstay protector will be made for 5 different bikes for the price of 1 ride wrap. You want install supplies they have it. You want a shit ton of Loctite, you got it.


What dafuq are you smoking? a product what it is. The little install kit, is the experience. You can function perfectly fine without the kit. Its like saying; you NEED a condom for sex. No you don't that condom is so you wont spawn little ones in 9 months or get a STI.

Yes, as they said in the release, they are now sending out the slippy stuff for install along with the squeegee, wipes, and microfiber. The only thing you'd need is a spray bottle, and I'm certain you have one under your sink.

Do you not value design and experience? I've cut all sorts of random materials and glued them to my bike, i'd happily pay for someone to think things through and create a proper solution made for the purpose instead of collecting random bits from an industrial website that also sells caster wheels and tube cutters. There are many ways to achieve a goal, some are just better suited for the job.

 @Happypanda1337: Some of us value our time - happy to pay Ride Wraps for the convenience and expertise.

Then I have more time to ride and spend time with my family and friends. That is a pretty good trade-off. Not lazy - just good time management and optimizing my life.
  • 1 4
 Right? I don't know why people line up to get ripped off with this crap. I got a $30 roll of the 3M stuff (literally the same material as ridewrap) on amazon and I have enough leftover to wrap another bike. Measuring and cutting the pieces yourself isn't rocket science.

 @Happypanda1337: WOW, don't look at www.invisiframe.co.uk or you really will go batshit crazy over pricing, everything in life can be done cheaper but its not necessarily the best option and a frame wrap done well can enhance the look and protect it's future value.

It takes our trained engineers ~8 hours to design a kit for a new model its first size after the measurements have been taken, we then test fit to confirm and modify before it reaches you. We aren't putting a man on the moon, but a lot of technology, thought, time and experience go into designing each model so that it installs and looks great. Also, we source our specific materials from factories, not Bezos :-)

 @Happypanda1337: You’re a double dumb ass. I’m totally fine paying 95.00 for a precise cut frame wrap and keeping my 5k bike from looking ghetto. I’ve seen the self cut tape job, inner tube chain stay protector, the Self made plastic downtube and so forth.. your retard Macgyver bike looks like garbage bud.

 Lol @ chainstay armor. It's just repackaged 3M mastic tape at 4x the price.
  • 7 0
 We aren't saying that we are reinventing the wheel here, but we are certainly not just repackaging products either.

Across the board, our team designs and then works with factories to source our materials. Each material undergoes testing with bikes to ensure that the durability is up to a standard that we would like, adhesion properties work specifically for bikes, and the install experience is up to standards.

In the case of Chainstay Armor, we sought to provide a well thought out product with good value. Most tapes in the same category are sold in 25mm by 3000mm sizes. We found that the 25mm simply does not allow us to properly cut a single trim fit piece for the chainstay, we'd have to use two pieces in parallel and that didn't pass our aesthetics test so we doubled up to 50mm. We also examined and specified our adhesion properties so that you could cut a smaller piece, as having them fall off was an issue, so this stuff is sticky. From a pure value perspective, in Canada, a roll of 25x3000 goes for ~$58 + shipping if not locally available equating to $0.08/cm^2. The Chainstay Armor is offered at $0.05/cm^2, is available at your bike shop or as an add-on to your online order and includes some prep cleaning.
