Colour co-ordinate your steed with Slik Graphics custom decals
Slik Graphics are a custom mountain bike graphics company based in Sweden, and they make excellent value, high quality decal kits for suspension forks, shocks, frames and more.
Back in the early 90’s when the UK mountain bike race scene was kicking off, customising was really popular. What we lacked in variety of bikes was made up for with anodised aluminium accessories – people would go to town with matching anodised spoke nipples; bottle cages; seat collars and seemingly anything else.
Thankfully, with brands like Slik Graphics, you don’t need expensive carbon rims or a market leading frame to get your colour-matched kick. Slik offer decals from just £9.99 to give your bike a custom look.
Slik Graphics make really nice quality vinyl sticker kits for just about any popular set up on the market, and will produce custom kits if they don’t have what you want.
We fitted a kit which had been colour matched to a Mondraker Dune Carbon RR frame. Up front we’re currently using a Rockshox Lyrik fork – when Slik Graphics sent us the £14.99 kit through, they hadn’t yet seen the Mondraker in the flesh, but the colour match is bang on! They shipped us the graphic kit in two ways – yellow on blue and blue on yellow. We’ve still not decided so have one leg in each!
We’ve been using a set of Easton Arc 30mm rims (as part of the Heist 30 wheelset) for quite a while now, though the stock graphics had been looking tatty so we asked for some wheel decals (£22.99) to match.
Although the original Rockshox graphics were easy to remove, the Easton graphics were a pain in the arse and took most of a day. Installing the new graphics was easy though – they fit was absolutely perfect and they position on the rims exactly like the originals.
Are you in to colour co-ordinating on your bikes?
