Cover for KS16s?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a cover that will fit this wheel?

Or does the Inmotion V8 cover fit?

There were some pics of wheels with armless neopren suits - but don't know how much work it is to adopt one...

That's actually kinda brilliant as the neoprene protects from both scratches and impacts. I'm looking...

The cost of new wetsuits is lower than any on my local Craigslist. <_<

that wetsuit was probably made in china like all our clothes so they obviously have a lot of seamstresses, u would think they’d start making covers for wheels and snap on bottom foot pads protectors out of nylon our some other material. 

gotta be easier to make a wheel cover as opposed to a wetsuit. i’d gladly buy covers for my wheels as opposed to making my own.

Be advised I do have the V5 cover; while the cover itself is oddly sophisticated (it's a complex multi fabric with multiple layers) I found out the protection works against scratches but is minimal against impacts because it is thin compares to, say, 5mm neoprene.

You can get a thin bag on aliexpress.  Doesnt offer much protection.  I throw it in there when i go to the beach so my wheel doesn't get sandy.

I looked at vintage round suitcases on ebay for a while but they are all only 6-7 inches wide.

I used the V8 cover on my kS16s.  It is not a perfect fit but good enough for training.

The cost of replacement panels is half the cost of the neoprene cover. Still might be worth it, though, as neoprene is better than that crappy baby foam that EUC shippers often include.

I would like a little rain cover just for the top.

I agree. Nice job following the contours. Did you paint your KS? It appears to have a textured, almost rubberized appearance.

Sorry, since @Hunka Hunka Burning Love didn't do it I have to 😘

That wheel is so sexy it had to be rubberized....

Only thing is mine is bigger :whistling::w00t2: being a KS18L matt black rubber ( see signature) and now modded with western bigger pedals 😁
