DEI Powersports has launched what they call the next generation of heat protection performance using a combination of advanced textiles and a reliable stand-off bracket design.

DEI’s new ONYX Series™ Flexible Heat Shield, available in a rich black finish, looks great and outperforms other conventional metal heatshields currently on the market, it is claimed. For improved thermal performance, DEI joined two durable materials together to form a dual layer design. The outer is made from heat-treated glassfibre, impregnated with molten aluminium (that’s what it says here!), which is then formed into a tight weave for added durability and strength.

Meanwhile, the inner material is made of a specially treated, high temperature resistant fabric (89 per cent silica) capable of withstanding extreme exhaust heat – up to 1350°F (732°C). The outer edge features a ‘surge stitch’ for improved durability, while all hardware is stainless steel. The material technology combined with the stand-off bracket facilitates maximum cooling and heat dissipation.

The ONYX Series™ Flexible Heat Shield protects legs and boots as well as acting as a barrier between the exhaust and plastic bodywork, suspension components, or electrical harnesses.

Designed to be flexible, the shield will fit many different applications and pipe diameters and is available from Nimbus Motorport on.01377 236 170 or ENDS.
