A two piece chain tensioning system. The upper body secures to the chainstay via a hinged clamp and bolt, the bottom section swivels and has a roller guide incorporating a cog which will move with each gear shift to maintain a proper chain line. Ideal for trials or street use.

fantastic and versatile little tensioner. A bit old school in principal, but gives you the versatility to choose your own tension. I did have to reverse fit it to the chain stay to get optimal position for it, but does the job perfectly at a fraction of the price of integrated BB chain device.
BTW it also works great for tensioning a single speed mtb set up when using vertical drop outs.
excellent quality Alu.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Freeridie Product arrives in great condition
Cant review this as it does not fit on my Xc , the part the tensioner has to lock onto has to be rather thin and cyclindical , couldnt have this put on my bike as it has a more of a Rectangular and Thick tube.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Enom Per single speed non è il massimo.
Montato su city bike single speed ma non risolve bene il problema di caduta catena.
O si tende troppo la catena oppure, quando si prendono buche, la catena scende ugualmente e ci si deve fermare a rimettere le cose a posto.
Migliora ma non risolve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bOmBaJ82 y..not for me :(
Product solidly constructed. Severe ... ;/ A minus. I bought it thinking about my arm GIANT REGIN 2/2013 .. unfortunately does not fit. Terminal does not cover my frame. I tried to even change the bolt and does not work. You will have to sell it now. If one looks at weight - I do not recommend. If one looks at the design - would recommend. It must be checked in the field. I gave a good note because I think it is worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jp990 Good value
Good value hard wearing i keep it quiet with some vegetable oil. Ive mounted it logos facing inwards on mine just cos i mainly use the smaller sprockets on the rear and it has started to get a bit stiff after a couple hundred miles. Easy to strip and clean and keeps the chain on my 1 x 9. Would recommend to anyone. Looks great on bike too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by vailcycling Strange size
Well i bought this product to help keep the chain on a Carrera titan dual sus bike. The mounting bracket is too small for the chainstay in that it will only fit very close to the rear sprockets making it useless as the tension on the chain would be extreme. Maybe this is item is suitable for single speed bikes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Bueno, pero mal amarre.
El tensor esta bien pero no es universal, para mi bici le he tenido que adaptar cortandolo enderezandolo y atronillandolo a una abrazadera nueva con la sujeccion que trae el tensor. No es valido para Giant trance, ni reing, que son las que yo tengo, valdria para bicis con bainas finas, tipo bicis rigidas o semirigidas.
deberia tener 3 bisagras o de diferentes amarres para que fuese universal.
