Description

Give your bike the silent treatment with this totally rad chainstay protector from VHS (Velocity Hucking Systems). Designed and manufactured out of natural rubber in New Zealand, this tape will replace that tattered inner tube or puny factory protector on your chainstay with a long-lasting and effective sound deadener that will make your bike look pro.

Who's this item for: The VHS Slapper Tape is perfect for anyone that is fed up with having a noisy bike and wants a neat and effective solution that will banish the sound of chainslap for good.

Materials: Manufactured from natural rubber

Dimensions:
  • Length: 350mm
  • Width: 25mm
  • Height: 12mm
The VHS Slapper Tape has been tested on as many bikes as possible but chainstays come in all shapes and sizes so there is no guarantee that it'll work on your bike. Have a good look at the dimensions above to double-check before purchasing.

Installation
  • Remove your existing chainstay protection.
  • Give the chainstay a really good clean to remove any grunge or old adhesive. Finish it off with some isopropyl alcohol to get things squeaky clean. Avoid using household cleaners as they often contain silicone which will prevent the adhesive from sticking properly.
  • Test the length of VHS and trim to size if required
  • Peel the backing tape and apply even, firm pressure while attaching the VHS tape to the bike.
  • Leave it to set for at least 30 mins before riding, and up to 6 hrs if you'll be heading out into wet conditions.
  • Offcuts can be great for use in other small areas.
Standout feature: Looks a bit like a strip of Cadbury's dark chocolate but this thing is chockablock full of sound deadening goodness. The knobby rubber design creates more surface area for the chain to contact and gives the chainstay more padding without being too bulky.

Pros: Looks neat and will banish chainslap to make your bike sound super stealthy.

Cons: Won't make you ride as fast as Eddie Masters. Doesn't taste like chocolate.

Fits my curvy chainstays!

by

I've struggled to find chainstay protectors that fit my (narrow, curved) steel chainstays over the last 8 months.

The VHS tape molds really nicely around the curves of my chainstays (even though it's flat when receiving it). The 3M tape seems super strong ("don't put it in the wrong spot" kind of strong).

It's beaten many other high-end chainstay protectors already by simply fitting my frame and staying on!
