About The Founder
Bicycle Armor was launched in 2017 by Roel Vanmuysen. As a Belgian, living in the United States for over a decade, cycling has been in his blood. A European pro cyclist turned American entrepreneur, he founded BelgiumBike - an import and distribution company that represents Belgian cycling products in the US.
His professional approach, passion, and pushing the limits allowed him to enter in the US cycling market. By networking with all levels in the industry, visiting hundreds of shops, and presenting on national and international cycling events he learned more about the US cycling industry and community that he ever thought possible.
Soon owners in nearly 50 states had touched and tested the quality and craftsmanship of Belgium’s finest cutting-edge cycling products.
Roel delivered constant feedback to the manufacturers in Belgium, while in the US, with a solid message that spoke to true love of quality products. With consistency and hard work he earned the trust of the industry and its consumers.
He approached the market and kept up with trends by attending events and trade shows around the country. Events like Interbike in Las Vegas, IronMan triathlons, local races in communities nation-wide, to UCI World championships.
“After 15 years in the industry experiencing the use and development of phenomenal cycling products, I noticed that technology kept advancing, but the way to protect it didn’t,” Vanmuysen said, “How can we protect our expensive ‘wingman’ in our passion called cycling?”
About The Company

The application and timing are very precise and demand a thorough preparation and eye for detail, therefor exclusively offered by educated, professional installers and bicycle shops.
During application the nano-components of the coating bond literally with the existing paint job, creating a new, almost invisible, permanent layer of protection. 9H means 3 x harder and smoother than the existing paint layer. The new coating layer will protect the bicycle for years.
