BMX Dropout Savers are CNC machined from heat treated, aircraft
quality 6061-T6 aluminum alloy billet. They are then tumble
finished to remove any sharp edges. They are designed to be
used "as is", however given their raw aluminum finish,
they are easily anodized, polished, or painted.
The backside of each Dropout Saver has a
slotted protrusion that extends into the dropout to locate the
axle and protect the dropout. The large backside surface
that mates to the dropout face features a radius on the
complete outer edge. This prevents an otherwise sharp
cornered (90º square) edge from marking or gouging the
painted, powder coated, or anodized finish of your frame.
Stainless steel washers are included with all
Helix BMX Dropout Savers.
