  • Choosing a chain guide can be a complicated process, we hope that these walkthroughs will demystify the process

  • There are a few steps to choosing a chain guide and the following walkthroughs in this series will visit that in greater detail, but as a first step let’s narrow down the selection process

  • We also recommend reading through the Chainline explained walkthrough so you can better understand how to properly install your guide. Chainline (CL) is a term we will use often, so it is important that someone who is deciding on, or installing a chainguide knows what that means

  • For single ring guides, visit the Single ring guide picker

    • XCX and TRS guides offer just upper guidance and are our lightest weight, most minimal guide. Perfect for Trail, Enduro and XC.

    • XCX guides do not have bash protection and are unable to be run with a chainring mounted bashguard. We offer them in a seat tube or BB mount

    • TRS guides offer direct mount bash protection in the ISCG models. We also offer D-type and E-type mounting

    • We also make a cyclocross specific version of the XCX with a chainline spec designed around road cranks
