Wrap My Bike introduces to you, the Shimano Ultegra 8070 DISC SKIN.
This is a custom made skin from high quality vinyl print foil.
With this custom-cut vinyl foil it is very easy to customize your own Shimano Ultegra Disc brakes. Nothing is impossible anymore!
Based on our instructional videos you will be guided step by step in wrapping the disc.
This is what you receive:
- sets of 4 disc skins
- Alchohol pad
- Smile on your face after wrapping the discs.
For show, not for performance
After many justified questions about the heat dissipation of the foil in relation to the brakes, we tested the skins with various test subjects over a period of 3 months. The discs heat up by braking. The inner side of the discs serve to dissipate the heat, on which the foil can therefore be applied. When developing the skins, we therefore also left the ventilation spaces open so that they are not disturbed.
As mentioned, we have extensively tested the skins for 3 months in several conditions during the summer. Rain, wind, but also hill and mountain landscapes are visited. The following findings were made during the test:
– No problems with braking were ever experienced during the testing period.
– During summer descents in hilly and mountainous landscapes, the foil can overheat and melt.
– The foil can withstand a temperature of up to 120 degrees.
– During 3 months of cycling through sun, rain and wind, no problems have arisen with both the foil and the brakes themselves.
‘We make the skins available based on a high demand from people who would like to personalize their disc brakes. But our urgent advice is not to apply the foil as soon as you start cycling/descending in the mountains. Then the foil could possibly start to melt, which could affect the discs and braking behaviour. Our urgent advice is to remove the foil for use in hilly and mountainous landscapes. Wrap My Bike cannot be held responsible for any adverse effects arising from the disc skins’
