When side cases (panniers) are not attached the unprotected rear drive housing will get damaged in the worst case. This happened during test rides and photo shoots in the Tabernas desert (Spain).The damages were significant in spite of the low speed. This absolutely lightweight carbon guard protects the rear drive securely and provides a dynamic finish of the drive unit. Extremely light and sturdy carbon fibre hybrid material, completely covered with a glossy protective hard plastic coat, which penetrates the material and provides optimal protection. Easy to fit (self-adhesive).
