Can you remove RideWrap bike protection?

Realistically, there is no need to remove your RideWrap as it is always a selling feature for the next owner and with self-healing features it stays looking great. BUT if you want to remove the kit it is super easy and user-friendly using a gentle heat to soften the adhesive bond, then peeling it off gently.

We have chosen our adhesives so that they are removable. This balance between bond and removability is very important as paint quality can vary widely from manufacturer to manufacturer. This being said, please always use heat when removing as paint quality is highly unpredictable.

My model/year/size is not listed, can i use this kit instead?

Tailored protection kits are designed to be model and size-specific. If all the model, year, and size details do not match your particular bike, we do not have a perfect match yet for you. We wish we did.

RideWrap puts in a huge effort to source and design as many kits as possible, however, there are always some that they have not had the pleasure of acquiring yet. There are a few options that we have in this case:

Bring RideWrap your bike

Their shop in Whistler is where all the magic goes down, bring them your bike and they will be happy to take measurements and create a kit for your model. Get in touch with them to make it happen.

Check out the Covered Kit

While we know its not the full coverage of the Tailored kit, we have used our deep library of bikes and data to design these bike frame size-specific kits. We used all the measurements that we’ve acquired in order to design a kit that offers the max coverage with minimal trimming. In addition, these kits offer the most protection by film area available per dollar spent.

Put in a Kit Request

Drop RideWrap a kit request and they will A) do our best to source your particular model B) let you know as soon as it is available.

What is self-healing film?

RideWrap films have a self-healing top coat that allows light scuffs, scratches, and marks to dissipate with either direct sunlight or a gentle heat using a hair dryer; it’s tough to explain, but they literally disappear. We often show customers this process by scratching up some extra film and taking a hair dryer to it; it really is a cool feature and in the end, it keeps frames/forks looking fresh for so much longer than unprotected.

Are RideWrap protection kits DIY friendly?

The kits are absolutely DIY friendly. They have approached the product two-fold for our customers, a rider can easily grab a couple of beers and install the kit over a couple of hours, or they can visit one of the fantastic Certified Installers to have the full-service experience.

All kits come with the required installation tools and very detailed instructions.

Selecting the correct RideWrap Tailored Protection kit // Legend

All protection kits have a few options to select before adding them to your cart. Below is a description of the nomenclature used throughout the site and products.

Option 1: Model
The model names are listed as the manufacturer website as much as possible. If you are looking at your bike on the manufacturer website and it says “Nomad” then start by looking at the options for “Nomad”
Each model has some information within the brackets. Something along the line of “(27 – A)”.

The first term is the wheel size, as some models come in varying wheel size… 29 for 29″ wheels, 27 for 27.5″ wheels also known as 650b, 26 for 26″ wheels, etc.

The second term is frame construction… C for Carbon, A for Aluminium, S for Steel.

So, a model listed as “Nomad (27 – A)” Refers to the aluminum frame construction Nomad with 27.5″ wheels.

Option 2: Year

The year option refers to the model years where the frame design was sold. Typically model year starts a year after the actual year the bike was introduced, for example, the Specialized Enduro 2020 was released in August of 2019, however, its model year is referred to as beginning in 2020.

If the model is current, the introduction year will be followed by “- present”

So the brand new Specialized Enduro S-Works has year options 2020 – Present and 2017 – 2019 for the previous frame model.

Again, we do our best to match how the manufacturers label their bikes.

On some models, we have added additional monikers to the year selections to further aid in the correct association to your bike. For example, Santa Cruz has “V3” or “V4” used to unofficially describe some of their bikes.

We do our best to keep our thumb on the mark for the different years, be sure to do the research surrounding your model to see if there has been a recent change to the frame geometry.

Option 3: Size

This is your bike size. Most brands utilize the S – XL monikers, however, some brands are moving away from this. We match as best we can to the size options as listed on the manufacturer’s website.

Option 4: Finish

This option lets us know whether to produce your kit in Gloss or Matte.

Gloss is very shiny/polished. Think of that new car shine.

Matte, sometimes referred to as satin, is dull/not shiny. Different manufacturers use different degrees of matte, so not every matte will match perfectly. We have produced our films to match the widest range of matte bike finishes.


We only list models, years, and sizes that we have available. If yours is not listed at any of these levels, then we do not currently have the matching kit for your bike. Other models, years, and sizes will not fit your bike. If this is the case, please put in a kit request with RideWrap and the will try their best to source a bike to design.
