Mountain-bike Rotor Protector

SKU: 4919316181520

The MTB Rotor Protector on Pinkbike.


The Mountain bike Rotor Protector is a protective encasing that prevents wheel rotor damage like scratches and bends during travel, storage, or any time the wheel is removed.


The MTB Rotor Protector is the first and only product designed to protect the rotor when the wheel is unattached from the bike. This sturdy encasing protects the rotor from scratches and bends during travel and storage.


Less of a tool and more protective equipment, it utilizes the thru-axel design found in most high-end wheel hubs, allowing it to be mounted and removed, securely and easily. With the Rotor Protector, you can toss your front wheel in the car with no concern of rotor damage.


When Would I Use The MTB Rotor Protector?

• A mountain bike Roof Rack that requires removal of the bike's front wheel.
• A Shipping Box with your mountain bike. This is advantageous for PinkBike Buy/Sell; or any time you ship your bike.
• A Bike Bag when taking your mountain bike on a plane.
• A bike transported Inside Your Car.
• Changing the front wheel's tire/tube at the trailhead.

  • Front vs Rear Rotor Protectors

    Front Rotor Protectors use a 15 mm diameter thru-axle that most mountain bike front-wheel hubs use.


    Rear Rotor Protectors use a 12 mm diameter thru-axle that most mountain bike rear-wheel hubs use.


    Front and Rear Rotor Protectors are only compatible with the designated thru-axle. E.G; a 12 mm REAR axle is not compatible with a Front Rotor Protector (and vice versa).
