Overview

We originally only wanted an attractive way to protect our demo wheels to allow learners to feel comforatable without the worry of damaging an EUC.

They worked so well that our customers thought it was an optional extra. From this, the EUC Bodyguard was born!

We worked on numerous versions and editions, each one slightly more refined. We had prototype models out with local riders, incorporating their feedback in the evolution from "a good cover" through to the EUC Bodyguard! The final result providing a sleek look that maintains the lines and shape of the EUC, while also allowing access to all of the ports, buttons and sensors, as well as maintaining full functionality of both the head / tail lights and visibility of the side LED lights too. Something that was in no way at all an easy feat!

The EUC Bodyguard provides "all over" protection for your EUC body / shell as it is constructed from a neoprene (rubber), with an extra strong outer layer carefully selected to maximise protection while looking good no matter how many times your wheel falls, bounces or slides.

Assembled by hand, using extra-strong thread. The seams are stitched, then bound and stitched twice more to ensure maximum strength and retain an all-over "togetherness".

Every cover is then thoroughly inspected and test fitted so that we know every single one leaving Roll.nz will perform as it's owner expects.

Quality may be becoming harder to find these days, but for us it is the only option.

Fitting Instructions

For those after a more "visual" tutorial, please have a look at our EUC Bodyguard Fitting Video. Otherwise the steps for fitting are detailed below;

  1. Place your wheel upright and with the pedals open.

    1. If you are fitting the EUC Bodyguard alone, you may find it easier to do this with the wheel powered on.

  2. Now pull the EUC Bodyguard down over the wheel. This is most easily done holding the front and back of the EUC Bodyguard.

    1. For most King Song EUC there is only one way that the EUC Bodyguard fits, so check the position of the holes on the top panel and the position of the buttons / sensors / ports.

    2. The King Song 18L/XL EUC Bodyguard fits either way, but it is recommended that you fit it so that the top velcro strip is to the side that you usually grab the handle from.

  3. Once the EUC Bodyguard in roughly in place, adjust the position of it to get the front / rear lights and ports aligned correctly and the top corners in position.

  4. Next hook the four bottom tabs into position (under and to each side of the pedals). Check that the inside of the tab is pulled up snugly and is sitting flat to avoid any potential of it catching.

    1. If your EUC is powered on while doing this remember not to lift it off the floor. Also make sure it is being held firmly from the top and be extremely careful of your fingers around the wheel!

  5. Next check the side LED positions and adjust as required to get the maximum visibility.

  6. Finally, with the trolley extended, pull the two top pieces inward until they sit in a nice position (with good access to buttons and ports) and then press the Velcro strip together.

Once fitted, the natural stretch of the neoprene allows you to slide the EUC Bodyguard slightly in all directions, ensuring the best possible placement for maximum light output and port access.

Care and Cleaning

To ensure you get the maximum lifespan out of your EUC Bodyguard, please follow these care and cleaning instructions.

Caring for your EUC Bodyguard

  • It is recommended that riders regularly remove their EUC Bodyguard to check for and remove any dirt or debris that may have become caught between the wheel and the cover.

  • Your EUC Bodyguard should never be put away, or back onto your EUC while it is wet or damp. Ensure it is completely dry first.

  • Do not fold your EUC Bodyguard when storing it.

  • Following a significant fall, even if there is no apparent damage to your EUC, it is recommended that you remove the EUC Bodyguard to ensure that no unseen damage has been sustained.

Cleaning your EUC Bodyguard

  1. To remove dust, dirt and other debris use a clean brush to dust it away. An unused 3-4” paint brush is ideal for this.

  2. For more stubborn or damp foreign matter, a damp cloth can be used to wipe your EUC Bodyguard clean. Then leave to dry out in a shady area.

  3. Should even more vigorous cleaning be required, use a soft brush with mild detergent in luke-warm water. Once again, leaving to dry out in a shady area.

  4. And if any further cleaning is required, please follow general cleaning instructions for neoprene wet-suits.
