Allmountainstyle is a brand new company, based in Spain – and fully dedicated to mountain bike innovations.
They launch their activity with a kit of protections for frames – but with an innovating composant inside. We were curious of that.
Protection kit overview
Allmountainstyle kit is presented on a board – all the patchs are already divided in 3 forms : circular, arrows and a long patch for the downtube. The new thing here is the structure of the patch – a PVC material with a honeycomb structure.
The material is thick and not too much flexible. Each patch looks really strengh (they are 9 on the kit)
Two colors are available : transparent or black. Here is the transparent kit that we tested.
First, you need a clean bike (and clean hands also) to work properly. Even if the patch are deep, your fingerprints could stay forever on the patch ! Installation is quite simple : you just need to place the patch and to expel air bubbles. The sticky layer below each patch is strong – you have one trial.
We set the patches in two bikes (one white, one black) to appreciate the rendering. Up to you to say if you are fan or not of the design !
Installation on weldings or complicated forms is not easy. The stiffness makes the work a bit hard to have a clean result but you can manage to do it with concentration !
Good protections that do their job
We test the protection in some rocky trails in South of France and the result is clean : the downtube protection works well – the frame is trully well protected. The arrow-shaped cutting on the patch is smart to protect the area around the bottom bracket. The others patchs, dedicated to cable routing, are also made to last.
At the end
Allmountainstyle differs with the use of the honeycomb structure – this is really strong and ready for rough attacks. Patch forms are well thought also. The price is 22,90€ and the delivery free of charge if you order on the dedicated internet website. In front of the price, we can regret that the kit do not allow you to protect your chain stays and seat stays.
