Carbon Leather Frame Protector

We never want to think about the wear-and-tear our frame will face when we first see its gleaming paint and sparkling componentry just out of the box, but facing facts is important. "Smooth" is a relative descriptor of most roads, and rocks, grit, and other unexpected road debris accost frames more often than most of us realize every time we head out on the roads. Taking the extra time to add Lizard Skins' Carbon Leather Frame Protector to your chainstays and other high-wear areas will prevent overnight scratches and nicks from appearing without your knowledge, preserving the aesthetic of your frame without damaging it. The blend of carbon fibers and leather boasts high durability, and Lizard Skins backs it with a highly-adhesive coating to ensure it stays in-place on your frame over the miles without unsightly peeling or chipping.

  • Carbon Leather frame protector for mountain and road bikes
  • Shields paint frame from road debris and chain slap
  • Highly-adhesive, long-lasting material

    Hi, I suppose I customize to my needs? Thanks

    Great Protection

    I've put it through the wringer

    I love these. The carbon black looks nice on the underside and it really does offer that extra protection from rocks flying up or shuttling. Only downside is shuttling has caused mine to shift around and start peeling off... also the glue is such a pita to get off but not impossible and still worth using something... and this something definitely looks good!

    Stylish Protection.

    Looks great and adds protection to an impact prone area of your carbon frame. Get this for your new bike now.

    Works great!

    Got it for my down-tube on my Yeti SB 4.5 (Black color on Black frame). Works great and looks great!

    Much Needed Protection

    I've put it through the wringer

    I got this Carbon Leather Frame Protector for the downtube on my new Yeti SB5 LR. I purchased the Large and it fit perfectly on the underside of my frame. I have used this on my last couple bikes and it has protected my frames from everything from large rock strikes, small scratches and even damage from the tailgate of a truck during shuttle laps (I told my friend he needed a pick-up pad!). If you want to add to the longevity of your frame then I would highly recommend getting this or another frame protector from Lizard Skins. I prefer the Black color to the Clear, but I have a Black frame. Shoot me any questions about mountain bikes.

    Love using this on all my bikes on the down tube. Perfect protection when you throw your bike up on the pickup pad for laps or just to go ride. Also protects really well against rocks and anything else that gets kicked up!

    Stylish Protection

    I've put it through the wringer

    Slap these on your frame and protect it with a little style. These are a little thicker than the traditional clear protection and do at great job keeping your bike protected from chips from rocks and scuff from cable rub.

    Good protection, easy installation

    I've put it through the wringer

    This frame protector actually offers a good amount of protection. It is a few millimeters thick and has some shock absorption capability. It covered a good portion the downtube on my Hightower, enough to wrap around the edges just a bit. Application is easy just clean the area really well (I used a bit of isopropyl alcohol) and stick it on.

    The best!

    I've put it through the wringer

    If you want to keep your down tube chip free, and safe from rock/debris impacts, look no further. I build up an SB6 this year, and wanted to make sure the down tube was fully protected. This stuff is quite thick, and looks good once installed. Holds up to everything thrown at it so far, and shows no signs of wear and tear. It is very sticky when applying, and once stuck, it is extremely difficult to remove. Make sure to clean your down tube or any part of the frame you plan to apply this to with alcohol, to provide a clean surface. Take your time lining it up as well, as it is hard to remove as mentioned above

    love this stuff

    I've put it through the wringer

    I've put these on multiple bikes. I do the black "helicopter" tape on the down tube. Dimension are as follows: 12" long 2.25" wide

    Tacky and Strong

    I've put it through the wringer

    As long as you clean your frame well before application these guards will keep your frame protected for a long time. I've installed them on both of my bikes.

    Perfect for Carbon bikes

    I've put it through the wringer

    I have a 2017 Santa Cruz Bronson size large and the large size of this is almost perfect for protecting the down tube on my bike. It is a little small and does not cover all of the down tube but it covers most of the area that rocks will get shot up and hit your tube. They are super easy to put on, all you have to do is clean of the down tube with rubbing alcohol, wait till it dries, then stick on the protective layer and boom you are ready to go.

    Protect your frame!

    I picked up the Large version of this to put on my down tube. I will say, if you're going back and forth between these and the clear, the major difference, other then the look, is the thickness of the decal. These carbon ones are almost three times as thick and burly. I used the carbon version for beefy protection on the down tube. Then used the clear for the rest of my bike. Highly recommend these protectors.

    Hey Justin, I noticed they only make 2 sizes, small & medium. which size would you recommend for a medium Santa Cruz Tallboy LT Alloy Frame?

    Hey Jimmie, I'd recommend the large for the top and down tubes and small for protecting the rear triangle. Give me a shout if there's anything I can help you with.

    Justin, Can you give me the dimensions of the size large? I'm trying to get something that will cover up my down tube but will also completely cover the SWORKS decal on my 2016 Stumpy, size large. Thanks!
