Effetto Mariposa Wheel Shelter Kit

Shelter Wheel Kit is made of 35 washers that fit snugly over the valve stem, gluing at its base. With minimum bulk and weight, they provide an elegant and almost invisible silencing effect, cancelling unwanted valve movements and vibrations. The re-sealable bag makes sure washers retain their properties if needed for successive applications.

Once Shelter washers are applied on the rim, it’s possible to remove the valve an re-insert it without loosing the silencing effect. This is just one application of our Shelter Wheel Kit, but there’s more.

Nobody would drive a fast car whose wheels haven’t been carefully balanced after mounting tyres on.
Current high performance bicycle wheels, with fancy ceramic bearings, lightweight carbon rims, cannot deliver their full potential if not properly balanced.
It’s an easy task that only requires a Shelter Wheel Kit, a wheel truing stand (or a bicycle turned upside down), patience and some minutes per wheel.

The transmission of vibrational energy through any structure can be reduced by introducing visco-elastic materials at discrete points. It’s exactly what Shelter does, contributing to reduce vibrations on very stiff wheels.
