Effetto Mariposa Shelter Frame Protective Adhesive Kit

Shelter is an amazing adhesive backed, transparent multi layer elastomer designed to dissipate shock. Designed to protect downtubes from rocks being kicked up from the front wheel, it can however be used as a chainstay protector. Being that it is much thicker than other frame protectors, you'll notice the chain slap noise completely disappear.

Comes with down tube, top tube, chain stay, and individual cable rub guards. Apply Shelter to your cyclocross or mountain bike for ultimate frame protection.

Comments about Effetto Mariposa Shelter Frame Protective Adhesive Kit:

I put this on my brand new carbon Mach 6, and it's easy to cut, adheres nicely to a clean surface, and protects like a bulletproof vest! I put it everywhere! If there was a cable even remotely close to the frame....taped it. You know that nice rubberized downtube protector on the mach 6? I basically extended that idea almost all the way up the downtube! It's really not that heavy, and more than worth the weight.

Now for the only part I didn't particularly care for...it's pre-cut. What bike was this specifically made for that a pre-cut form would be appropriate for?! I guess it helped a bit on one spot...the downtube only version was unavailable...really, I'd rather just have a sheet of it and cut it to my liking.

    Comments about Effetto Mariposa Shelter Frame Protective Adhesive Kit:

    I bought this for my carbon hardtail. I've had it on the bike from it's first ride 2 years ago. It performs fantastically. The downtube has taken some pretty significant hits, the kind that have left dents in the Shelter, but nothing gets through. It's lightweight and the best thing about any product you can put on your bike - once it's on you never have to think about it. It's clear so the frame shows through. I strongly recommend it. The only 'downside' I would say is that a product like this is only as good as the adhesive it uses. Wash your hands very clean before applying and try not to touch the sticky side. While my downtube strip is solidly in place, the circles for chain rub spots are coming up a little on the edges. I'd cut them in 1/2 because you don't need a full circle in most spots, but those are the problem. Maybe I'll break out the superglue.

      Highly recommended for a carbon bike frame. Protectors are large enough to cover vital areas and easy to cut and shape down if need be.

            Good protection for a carbon frame, but the pieces are very small. Not much there for the price, I would excpect about twice the material to do one frame.

            Good product and gives a nice amout of protection, and unlike other reviews I can barely notice it. All-in-all if you want extra protection on your carbon bike this is the way to go.

            Too thick

            Comments about Effetto Mariposa Shelter Frame Protective Adhesive Kit:

            I ended up returning this stuff. It was way too thick, like 1/16". Sure that would be protective, but it would look weird.

            I ended up getting some remnant 3M clear bra from a local installer for free. Pretty much invisible.

            For the lower downtube I bought some of the textured, rubbery stuff that Santa Cruz offers.
