Published on October 16th 2017


As mountain bikers, it goes without saying that our bikes are our prize possessions! We want to have an awesome time getting sideways on our bikes, but we don't want to put a big scratch in the paintwork by getting a bit over enthusiastic! So what can we do!? Doddy's got the solutions! Subscribe to GMBN: Get our new Snapback in the GMBN Store: 3M tape goes by many names. 3M, Helitape, Invisiframe or frame armour. Whatever it's refferred to as by product variation, it essentially provides the same purpose. This is to protect your frame from superficial and cosmetic damage that could happen during everyday use, almost like a second skin for your bike. 3M or Helitape is great as, being see through, it doesn't affect the look of your bike too much! After a few months of riding you'll definitely be thankful its there and won't notice it at all! Some level of protection for your frame is a must if you're conscious of stone chips on your paintwork. Either as a happy owner or if you're always someone with re-sale value in mind, some level of frame protection is great for protecting your bike!
