Contours with a difference
Not just some pretty little lines… Frame Skinz, Contours combines topography with a selection of weird and wonderful place names from around the UK, which we had fun researching and verifying. Not for Karen! On a transparent background, it blends perfectly into your bike’s natural colour scheme, providing bomb-proof protection for the essential areas. The seventeen patches can be used independently or in harmony, letting you decide what areas to protect.
- High performance and eco savvy clip, clout, clobber, chip, chafe, crash protection for your precious bike bits
- Universal fitting: suitable for alloy and carbon frames
- Super clean and easy installation and removal
- Exceptional clarity and stylish designs
- Proudly designed and manufactured in the UK; the land of muck
We spent forever (and a bit longer), sourcing the right materials but we are happy as pigs in shit with the end product and hope you will be too. Using materials normally used on Motocross, Karts, ATVs, Snowmobiles and Jet Skis with a strong, clear pressure-sensitive adhesive that is super clean to apply and remove, the end result is a 300 micron composite vinyl (that’s metric by the way), that offers outstanding performance and crystal clear graphics while also being pliable enough to conform to the endless contours of each and every bike frame.
Did we say the vinyl is Cadmium-free? WTF is that, you may ask. Straight from https://www.greenfacts.org/en/cadmium/ Normally found in PVC materials, Cadmium is toxic to plants, animals and micro-organisms. Being a simple chemical element, Cadmium is persistent – it cannot be broken down into less toxic substances in the environment. Basically, it’s not very nice so we got rid of it.
If that’s not enough, with graphics printed using eco-friendly ink and sandwiched in-between the vinyl layers for added protection, the end product is bundled inside its dedicated recycled cardboard packaging, keeping it safe while it heads to you.

The 17 patches, ranging from 32 x 28mm to 330 x 65mm, are compatible with most bikes,… not just mountain bikes.
Nothing other than a good eye (although two are better), and a relatively careful pair of hands are needed when fitting, as the adhesive allows you to reposition the patches if you make a dog’s dinner of it.
If you feel the urge to fettle, simply trim away with a trusty pair of scissors
