Effetto Mariposa Frame Protection Kit for MTB

Shelter Off-Road – Invisible protection is a transparent shock and scratch resistant adhesive tape. It provides a reliable protection to the carbon-fiber or metal structures it’s applied to. “Off-Road” is perfect for heavier duty off-road riding.


  • invisible protection against scratches and impacts
  • lightweight
  • easy to apply, strong adhesion also on curved surfaces
  • doesn’t turn yellow over time
  • ideal for protecting carbon or metal parts
  • visco-elastic behavior reduced vibrations


How it works

Shelter Off-Road has a 0,2 mm scratch-resistant upper layer with a gummy (viscoelastic) 1 mm layer underneath. This unique, composite construction allows Shelter to spread impact energy within its structure, without transmitting it or reducing it very efficiently.

Shelter Off-Road is the thickest Shelter, and it’s perfect for heavier duty off-road riding. Shelter Road (0,6 mm thick) is best for lighter off-road riding or gravel/cyclocross applications. Shelter ZeroDue (0,2 mm thick) is great for protection of road bikes or surfaces mostly subject to wear and friction, like crank arms.
