What is essential Protection?

Essential Protection™ is basic bike protection that protects areas susceptible to regular wear and tear. The essential protection kits provide paint protection against cable rub/rash, rock chips, and scratches.

The essential kits are DIY-friendly, cut to fit to protect key areas you think need protection, protecting up to 30% of your bike frame.

One-piece protection is available for downtube and toptubes. All RideWrap’s protection kits are self-healing, superhydrophobic, bike-specific protection film. 

Bicycle protection film is engineered from the ground up to protect bicycles. RideWrap is the first and only brand to create a film specifically for use on bikes. Learn more about RideWrap Bicycle Protection Film.
