Why protect your bike?
Good bikes can cost serious money. They ride well, look fantastic and odds are you've taken your sweet time obsessing about your next purchase – its attributes, build spec, colour etc. This is not a disorder. It is called passion and people who are passionate about their bikes understand the concept behind Frameskin right away.
Frameskin is an optically clear paint protection film technology that has been carefully designed and custom-shaped to protect your bike frame, fork and cranks from the scratches, scrapes and rubs that can occur while riding. Frameskin will help you keep your ride looking good for as long as possible and will even help retain resale value when it finally comes time to update your toy collection.
Thousands of riders riders around the world have Frameskin installed on their bikes and the comprehensive nature of these kits ensures maximum protection so you can relax and enjoy the adventure. Protect Your Plaything™.
Frameskin was born out of a desire to protect my own bikes from the scratches and chips that everyday use would throw at them, but while it was possible to spend a great deal of money on my bikes, I found there was nothing available on the market that offered adequate frame protection — and nothing near the level of protection that I wanted for my prized bikes. So, I set about designing my own.
A career in the graphic arts saw me well placed to develop a solution. I researched protective film technologies and after considerable testing, settled on base materials with the ideal characteristics for bicycle frame protection. I perfected the techniques for custom shaping and installation and posted photos of my first fitted kit on North America's main mountain biking forum (MTBR) back in 2007 and instantly received sales enquiries from riders wanting to buy a kit from me. It was a lightbulb moment. From there, a new market segment was created and Frameskin has been compulsively obsessed with Protecting Your Plaything™ ever since.
Since forming a company in early 2008, Frameskin has continued to design and manufacture custom shaped protection kits for an ever widening range of brands and models. We pioneered custom-shaped frame protection for bicycles — adapting technologies more commonly associated with automotive and industrial applications. Since forming the company and developing an ecommerce website, Frameskin has continued to develop and broaden the range of custom-shaped frame kits to keep pace with the release of new (mainly) premium carbon bicycles. The website now lists hundreds of custom-shaped kits available for purchase and sales grow strongly each year.
Frameskin frame protection kits are designed and manufactured in Canberra Australia and exported to 35 countries in 2015. All designs, kits, patterns and shapes are the intellectual property and copyright of Frameskin. No design, kit, pattern or shape may be reproduced, copied or duplicated under any circumstances (in part or whole). This would infringe our copyright and intellectual property and would make us angry. Our custom-shaped frame protection kits are highly crafted works or design and are sold as the premium standard and luxury level of protection for your bicycle. Our products surpass basic, standard and generic style protection products in every respect and are not available as a 'factory’ option and not found as a standard item on a bicycle. Our products must not be confused with simple ‘utilitarian' definitions of use or application. They are original and unique works. © 2018 Frameskin ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
Manufacturers, importers and bike shops can send their current or new season bikes/frames for custom shaping. The same goes for forks, cranks and other component parts. This process takes a few days, but ensures brilliantly fitting protection for your new range. We offer special deals to enable the smooth development of detailed custom-shaped kits for your range.

Frameskin received awards in 2014 and 2015 for exports from the ACT Chief Minister's Office. We're pretty chuffed about this.
