Chain guide - then the chain stays where it belongs!
How many times have you been grudgingly upset that the chain jumped off the chainring? It is particularly annoying when the chain is additionally jammed and only with brute force or tools to free. The chain guide on MTB saves you all the trouble and spares not only the individual components of your bike, but also your nerves. The good feeling of security makes you even more carefree "chain" - in the truest sense of the word! Especially for racers, the chain guide is essential, and in times of 1x11 drives, which have increased chain tension and special pinion teeth, sometimes no longer so urgently required.
The mountain bike chain guides are suitable for use on the 4X bike as well as on the enduro or downhill bike. Depending on the various fields of application, we offer you different designs in our shop. Although chain jumps have become less common with the innovative technologies such as Shimanos Shadow Plus or Type 2 by Sram, in really rough terrain you should not do without high-quality chain guidance.
Bashguards and chain guides for every mountain bike
For the easy installation of chain guides, several standards have been established, but unfortunately they are not compatible with each other. In older frames without intended mounting option still need not be waived a guide. For this case we also offer a large assortment of chain guides and bashguards. The attachment is then for example by means of a clamp on the seat tube or the guide is clamped under the outer bottom bracket cups of the BB bottom bracket. Another type of construction is offered by Absolut with its chain guide. They run the chain through a small tube. This is attached to the chainstay, so the chain is a few mm more around the chainring and is tightened taut. This type of chain guide is also intended for drives with multiple chainrings. A nice and affordable solution is also special adapters that can be upgraded to the ISCG standard. In the event that your chain guide after many hard operations no longer runs like clockwork, we have a lot of spare parts ready for you in the shop.
ISCG 03 (ISCG old) and ISCG 05
The ISCG recording is a widely used standard to attach the bashguard or chain guide. Here, the component is mounted to the pipe in which the bottom bracket is bolted. The difference between the two ISCG standards lies in the bolt circle. The bolt circle is 73mm in ISCG 05 and 59.24mm in ISCG 03 (old). Simplified, you can measure the distance between the two lower holes. This gap is 47.79mm for ISCG 3 (old) and 55.92mm for ISCG 5.
