    I bought some Zefal DT Armor (their spelling…) for my Kenevo SL but at 70mm wide it doesn’t wrap around the down tube so doesn’t offer as much protection as I’d like. Short of buying another pack, is there anything similar out there I could use instead?

    The DT Armor is 1.8mm thick self-adhesive rubber.

    The bike is already Invisiframed but my mate’s KSL took a rock strike at BMCC and the Invisiframe didn’t offer as much protection as we’d like.

    Sheet of kydex, hot airgun and some self adhesive tape. Job jobbed.
    Or section of old tyre cable tied on.

    My Scalpel came fitted with one of these (well the Scalpel specific one). They’re much thicker than invisiframe type acrylic.

    These look decent, cheap too.

    You might be able to find a specific one for your bike of you look about. Maybe contact the manufacturer.

    would have thought rockgaurdz do one for your bike. got one on both my bikes, the Rallon is onto it’s second one, the first lasted 3 years and had a lot of big hits going by the state of it(lakes riding) but the frame was perfect behind it.

    Rockguardz here on the Kenevo.
    The one on Mrsstus bike has taken a fair bashing as she’s not very good at hopping over root drops/rocks/ logs.

    The Rockguardz looks like the winner. Thanks all for your input, even those who didn’t read the OP properly… 🤣
