In 2000, when we introduced the world's first impact absorbing full thermoplastic Supercharger bashguard, we thought it couldn't be beat. Nine years later, we've outdone ourselves with the all new Turbocharger. Using our revolutionary and patent pending impact flexure technology, the Turbocharger is the strongest and lightest bashguard ever made. It's obscenely strong, ridiculously lightweight, and there's no metal to bend.
E Thirteen Turbo Charger Features:
Primary Uses: When you want the lightest and strongest bashguard ever made.
Our strongest bashguard ever, with the lightest weight (86g for a 36T!) of any comparable size bashguard in the world.
Revolutionary patent pending flexure design absorbs impacts and directs them away from your chainring.
7075 T6 inserts mount the Turbocharger to your crank lightweight standard chainring bolts.
Did we mention that it's crazy strong and amazingly lightweight?
It looks awesome on your bike in either black or white.
Crank Relief runs parallel with crank arm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Tough & awesome!
First things first.
It came with 11mm nuts so I was happy to put it on my bike ASAP replacing 3 ring set with 2 ring + bash. And here comes a surprise. The bolts I had with a big ring will not work with the nuts provided! It is different thread! Not standardized! So why bother providing this nuts? More over there is no info what is included in the package. So now I need to buy a set of bolts & nuts for almost a half the price of the bash...
But bash itself is awesome (I have a black one with gold logos) and will have golden bolts to match! Strongly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous HELL OF A UPGRADE
Bought this tubo-charger bash guard to up grade my old ( super-charger/SRS setup) after hearing how much weight could be saved. It is over twice as light as the old super-charger bash and looks 100 times better to. NOTE you do have to buy different mid length bolts/nuts because the original super-charger bolts/nuts are too long. ( Raceface have some steel bolts /nuts the right length and you can get um though CRC ) pity the hardware doesn't come with the guard but 5 stars anyway.

I never write reviews for products but for this i'll make an exception. Fitted to my Saint cranks after my Supercharger bash guard started to crack around the bolts, and im glad it did. It's lighter, less bulky, and stronger than the Supercharger.Just to top it off it looks awesome (especially with the gold bolts from the Saint cranks). Definitely recommend if you need a new bash guard for your e.thirteen chain guide.

This looks pretty, and it is way lighter than the old Supercharger I had on there. Unfortunately this is all at the expense of strength. First trail with it on and it folded on the first rock. badly enough to let the chainring get bent. Old Supercharger went straight back on (along with new chainring) and have had no more problems. So if you only want it for the look, by all means get one. If you want it to actually protect you from the occasional bash, steer well clear.
