Protect your Superbike with R&GBy R&G in R&G News on on 23 November 2020


Protect your Superbike with R&G

When it comes to protecting your pride and joy should the worst happen, the first thing that many riders think of is crash protectors. The best examples of these products help to absorb the impact, while keeping your machine elevated from the ground, so your frame (and fairings) should usually remain intact (check out our blog on R&G Aero Crash Protectors here).

However, here at R&G, our protection range extends far beyond just crash protectors. For over 20 years, we have been helping riders protect their machines with a range of innovative crash protection accessories. All of our protective products have been specifically designed to reduce the damage should the worst happen, normally allowing you to pick your bike back up and ride it home.

Our products have been extensively tested in the harshest of conditions, too.  As a proud supplier to the Bennetts British Superbike Championship, we see our products used on-track at every round, often saving teams vast amounts of time and money, ensuring they can maximise time on the circuit.


How to protect your machine

We pride ourselves on being able to protect the latest models as soon as they reach the market, and we currently offer thousands of products for hundreds of motorcycles, ensuring you can always protect your bike.

To give you an idea on the huge array of products you could call upon to protect your bike, we’ve taken a closer look at one machine in particular; the incredible Honda CBR1000RR-R (SP)…


Aero Crash Protectors

These aerodynamic crash protectors are designed to fit each bike and help to absorb the impact should you drop or crash your machine. Made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), the nylon has been designed to wear away as the bike skids down the tarmac, helping to slow it down without being too rigid, which can cause it to dig in and flip the bike. 


Engine Case Sliders

Fitting neatly over the engine cases, our Engine Case Sliders are very easy to install and complement the Aero Crash Protectors by helping to provide additional protection in the event of a crash. Made from HDPE, the sliders are designed to prevent your engine cases from wearing through as they slide down the road.


Engine Case Covers

For those riders looking for complete protection for their engine cases, our Engine Case Covers have been developed in conjunction with leading race teams and are crafted from 4mm polypropylene for strength, durability and good looks.


Bar End Sliders 

Crashing or dropping your bike can be an expensive accident, and your handlebars are often one of the first parts of the machine to hit the ground. R&G Bar End Sliders are designed to protect this vulnerable area in the event of a crash. 


Cotton Reels

R&G Cotton Reels are able to protect your expensive swingarm in the event of an accident, keeping it elevated from the ground as it slides down the road. However, they also double up as paddock stand bobbins!


Swingarm Protectors

Larger than the Cotton Reels, our Swingarm Protectors are designed to fit on the side of the spindle, helping to protect the entire swingarm, rear calipers, discs and drive sprocket in the event of a drop or crash.


Carbon Fibre Tank Sliders

Made from carbon fibre that has been reinforced with DuPont™ Kevlar®, R&G Tank Sliders are designed to fit seamlessly over the contours of your motorcycle’s tank, protecting these key areas during a crash. These sliders are incredibly easy to install and can help to prevent your tank from becoming dented or scratched, ensuring you do not have to face the cost of replacing it following an accident.


Carbon Fibre Tail Sliders

Made from the same materials as our Tank Sliders, R&G Tail Sliders are moulded to fit onto the most pronounced corners of the tail and can protect from damage and scratches in the event of a crash or fall.


Not just crash protection

Of course, anyone who has followed R&G over the past two decades will know that we are not just crash protection specialists. We offer motorcyclists a wide range of accessories designed to protect the bike against general wear and tear and enhance its aesthetic appeal. Some of the most popular products we provide include:
