Wrap Your Goods With Skinnz (Drivetrain) Protection
Pushing for a more comprehensive system of protecting your prized ride is Skinnz and their line of component covers. Citing a foul weather drive up Mt. Ventoux that resulted in his brand new Fuji being blasted by road-grime and grit, the founder Dirk Robers explains the impetus behind his Skinnz project. Wrap your valued goods before heading into the unknown…
The Skinnz concept is somewhat self-explanatory, but the execution is noteworthy. Skinnz utilizes Cordura for both its drivetrain and shifter covers. The point is protection for critical components that would be vulnerable in transportation situations. Whether you are transporting your bike in the back of the team car or loading it onto your Thule rack, the goal is the same — keep things protected and clean.
Skinnz points out the added benefit of protecting your components during storage and general handling — avoid nicked and scratched frames as they inevitably come in contact with levers, pedals, and derailleurs. Prices are TBD as availability is coming soon. Keep an eye on their website for more.
