Hey all,

The canyon impact protection unit is brilliant! pictured in the link below, ... ON-IPU.jpg

Anyone know if something like this exists to protect non canyon frames (third party)?
And additionally are there any alternatives to this that will protect a carbon top tube. Ive crashed my alu frame with just paint chips as consequence but i don't know how well my new carbon frame will fair in similar situations.

Acros BlockLock :thumbup:

It's not quite the same thing and not suitable for anything other than small frame tubes, but it does a similar job and there are a few similar products that would be more suitable for a modern MTB
Kashimax TT protector:

And a DIY version:

Or you could put something soft on the back of your shifter or whatever hits the frame. That would look better IMO.

tat acros system looks like a winner! i wonder how much stress those little screws cause on a big stack, reckon across is a safer bet !
