  1. Hi Chris , do you recon putting on raceshield on this frame ?

  2. It depends on your preference. Raceshield helps to protect your carbon frame against paint chip. However, it adds weight to your bike. Personally, I only use it on certain parts of the frame to prevent cable rub. After all, Nomad carbon is designed for aggressive ride. Paint chip and scratch marks are part of the deal in mountain biking. I would not be too bother about it.

  3. Thanks Chris ! Was thinking to buy the full frame package but the gloss film over the matt kinda destroys it, I'll just get some cable rub ones I guess , how about the top and bottom tube ?

    1. I did not put anything on my top and bottom tube. If you are concerned, you may put a mud guard on the bottom tube.
