Press Release: RedSide Custom Tools

The MTB Rotor Protector is the first and only product designed to protect the rotor when the wheel is unattached from the bike. This sturdy encasing protects the rotor from scratches and bends during travel and storage.

The MTB Rotor Protector shines for those who travel with their bike inside their car.

Less of a tool and more protective equipment, it utilizes the thru-axel design found in most high-end wheel hubs, allowing it to be mounted and removed, securely and easily. By attaching the rotor protector to your front wheel, you can toss it in the back of the car with no concern of rotor damage.

When Would I Use The MTB Rotor Protector?

When Ever You Remove Your Bike's Front Wheel:

• A mountain bike Roof Rack that requires removal of the bike's front wheel.

• A Shipping Box with your mountain bike. This is advantageous for PinkBike Buy/Sell; or any time you ship your bike.

• A Bike Bag when taking your mountain bike on a plane.

• A bike transported Inside Your Car.

• Changing the front wheel's tire/tube at the trailhead.

What Product Reviewers Say About the MTB Rotor Protector

"This may not be needed for some BUT, if you are someone who carries your bike on the roof and you don't want that front rotor getting banged up when you throw it in the car, then grab one of these! I was very impressed with the fit and finish, and the axle lock-in was a great touch!"
-The LPB Co.

"Works on all standard sizes! I have a Sram Guide rotor; which are size 200 whereas my son has Tektro Auriga rotors; which are size 180. Ordered two different sizes and they both fit and worked well as intended. Really made our trips to the trail easier considering we don't have a bike rack and put bikes in the back of the car."

"Works great, don’t have to stress about hitting my rotor in the back of the van when I slam on the brakes… or the gas, lol"

For assurance, the thru-axel of the MTB Rotor Protector is removable and replaceable.

The MTB Rotor Protector is only sold in Black and Red, priced at $35.99 with Free Shipping in the United States. Worldwide shipping is offered with a shipping flat rate of $14.00. We cover standard rotor sizes 205, 203, 200, 180, and 160. For any questions, email to Emails will be answered within 24 hours.

 Oregontrail , Take' em off . Being inventive is genius but protecting $35 rotors with $35 Chinese meal bow for 50c is naive

 Take my money!! This is awesome, so tired of stressing about dinging my rotor when my wheel is in the back. Can't order one of these fast enough

 A lie, though a small one, that no one else makes rotor protectors. Muc-Off has been doing it for a while.

 Muc-off protectors are for contamination, not impact. Slightly different idea here.

 Cool for travel. I’ve had my rotors bent in my bike bag before
