KEY FEATURES:
-Made using pre-impregnated carbon fiber
-Cured in an auto clave process
-Made completely in-house at Leo Vince
-Currently available for Honda, KTM, and Yamaha models only. More models will be available soon
-Of the models available, a carbon piece is offered to replace just about every engine guard on the bike

WHAT WE LIKED:
-Fitment is spot on. We didn’t have any difficulties fitting any of the guards onto our bike
-The quality of craftsmanship on these carbon pieces is second to none
-Durability is excellent, and we haven’t run into any problems yet
-Saves weight

WHAT WE DIDN’T LIKE:

-You can only use the front disc cover on stock-sized rotors. It would be nice to have a disc guard available for over-sized rotors

WHAT WE REALLY THINK: While carbon fiber guards aren’t a necessity, they do raise the bling factor of your bike exponentially. And when it comes skidplates and aluminum engine guards, carbon fiber will save a fair amount of weight. In our testing, we have also found that the Leo Vince carbon fiber stands up to a substantial amount of abuse and we haven’t run into any problems yet.
