New Rainer Kalwitz SpokeGuards
In March 2019, Rainer Kalwitz and SpokeGuards started a conversation regarding using Rainer’s unique designs on spoke guards. We are proud to announce that as of October 2019, a new page on the Spokeguards web site will be dedicated to Rainer Kalwitz designs. Initially there will be 14 different designs available, which will increase over time. This is a progressive collaboration generating a lot of excitement from viewers of the designs.
Whether you are into heavy metal bands, graphic novels or simply like a unique type of design, have a look at the Rainer Kalwitz page coming soon to the SpokeGuards web site. As usual, these designs are available in the standard format spoke guards, with a 104mm hole in the centre and the full cover version.
