The Purely Custom Soft Touch Bashguard is an excellent addition to any bike, especially if you like All Mountain riding, or frequent terrain that you need the functionality of a bashguard. The TPU’s superb combination of hard and elastic (soft) properties works extremely well, so you can slide on things, or grip, depending on the requirements. The ribs actually work, and you can walk up rock and logs using them. This thing shines in super technical terrain, and is supremely functional, acting as a third wheel. The non-marring qualities mean you can ‘Leave No Trace’ on the environment. I would like to see more sizes, so that it could be used on a larger selection of some of the newer drivetrains. The Soft Touch just plain rocks!
