    DESCRIPTION

    Shelter Off-Road is a transparent shock and scratch-resistant adhesive tape. It provides reliable protection to the carbon fiber or metal structures it’s applied to. “Off-Road” is perfect for heavier duty off-road riding.


    Exclusive Features:
    • invisible frame protection, against scratches and impacts
    • lightweight
    • easy to apply, strong adhesion also on curved surfaces
    • doesn’t turn yellow over time
    • ideal for protecting carbon or metal parts
    • visco-elastic behavior reduced vibrations




    Characteristics:

    How it works
    Shelter Off-Road has a 0,2 mm scratch-resistant upper layer with a gummy (viscoelastic) 1 mm layer underneath. This unique, composite construction allows Shelter to spread impact energy within its structure, without transmitting it or reducing it very efficiently.
    Shelter Off-Road is the thickest Shelter, and it’s perfect for heavier duty off-road riding. Shelter Road (0,6 mm thick) is best for lighter off-road riding or gravel/cyclocross applications. Shelter ZeroDue (0,2 mm thick) is great for the protection of road bikes or surfaces mostly subject to wear and friction, like crank arms.


    Lightweight protection
    With a weight of 0,130 g per square centimeter, Shelter Off-Road generates the following results:

    • Shelter Kit Off-Road: approx. 39 g (total weight of all the elements of the Kit)
    • Shelter Roll Off-Road (58 mm x 5 m, 1,2 mm thick): approx. 350 g.

    Available sizes/formats
    • Shelter Kit Off-Road: a sheet with pre-cut elements specific for off-road purposes, to easily protect sensitive frame areas (chainstays, down tube, cable/frame contact points, horizontal tube against brake levers contact).
    • Shelter Roll Off-Road: recommended for enthusiasts, shops or teams. Sizes(*): 58 mm x 1 m; 80 mm x 1 m;  58 mm x 5 m; 80 mm x 5 m, 1,2 mm thick.

    (*) tolerance +/- 10% on width and length

    Easy to apply

    Adhesion of Shelter is defined as “semi-structural”, so very strong but not permanent. After being applied, it takes Shelter 8 hours before developing its optimal bonding. After that, normal bicycle use or washing won’t affect it, but it can be removed – if needed – without damaging the underlying paint.

    Application of Shelter doesn’t require special tools or procedures, just normal skills, and patience:

    1. after removing cables or other interfering elements, clean the area where you want to apply the Shelter with alcohol and a clean cloth. Remove traces of dried-up alcohol with another clean, dry cloth;
    2. take the suitable pre-cut Shelter element or cut a custom made Shelter piece, without removing the backing paper;
    3. make sure the element fits the area you want to protect and make sure your hands are clean. After that, completely remove the backing paper, freeing the adhesive surface (try not to touch the adhesive surface with your fingers, or do it as little as possible: being transparent, fingerprints might show);
    4. gently position the Shelter on the area to protect, without applying pressure and without stretching the material. Re-position it if necessary, until it sits exactly where you want it. At this point, start applying even pressure, working from the center and going towards the sides, to avoid trapping air bubbles and making wrinkles;
    5. work on the whole Shelter element to make it stick to the surface. Insist on the edges and on tightly curved sections to make sure the adhesion is even.

    You can use your bicycle immediately after applying the Shelter, remembering that the full adhesion is achieved after 8 hours.

    To remove the Shelter, peel it off slowly, making sure not to delaminate it. Doing so, Shelter won’t leave any trace of glue on the surface it was formerly attached to, even after several years.


    UV-resistant

    The shelter is transparent but won’t turn yellowish over time, thanks to its UV protection. It will even protect the underlaying frame paint from UV degradation.
    IMPORTANT: after the removal of the Shelter, there may be differences in colors between protected areas and not, in the case of fluorescent paints or bright colors.


    Visco-elasticity reduces vibrations

    The transmission of vibrational energy through any structure can be reduced by introducing visco-elastic materials at discrete points. It’s exactly what Shelter does, providing stiff carbon frames with protection but also contributing to reducing vibrations. An example of that is Shelter Wheel Kit.


    Beware of copies!

    There are watermark “Shelter Effetto Mariposa” logos inside the Shelter structure, impossible to remove. Both “Effetto Mariposa” and “Shelter” are registered trademarks.

    The shelter is made in Italy.
