The simple attachment runs along your bike’s floorboard between your boot and the heat shield, and is said to help prevent you from grilling your kicks. Normal pedal functions aren’t affected. Heel Guards are made of durable high-grade steel, and you can choose from either the Turn-Down style or the Turn-Out style, depending on your preference and floorboard set up. Just make sure your particular footboard design incorporates a flat area on the bottom or on top under the rubber pad to allow the Heel Guard bracket to sit flat. The Guards are priced at $69.95 each.
