Hope Lightweight Bash Guard

Hope's new aluminium bash ring takes the place of the large chain ring on single or double ring set-ups, ideal for the new breed of 1 x 10 or 2 x 10 drivetrains.

Aluminium chain devices fit in various places around a mountain bikes transmission and help to eliminate chain suck and chain slap when riding over rough terrain or landing from big drops. There are a number of fitments, some frames have ISCG mounts which are lugs on the drive-side of the bottom bracket shell and allow direct fitment to the frame, other chain devices fit in between the bottom bracket and frame and require a specific bottom bracket with a larger drive-side cup, and finally there is the type that clamp around the seat tube in place of the front mech. Also within this section you can find single speed chain tensioners which fit in place of the rear mech and take up any chain slack.There is also a selection of wheel tugs which stop you pulling your wheel over in horizontal dropouts.

Hope Bash Guard Features:

  • Material: Aluminum
  • Weight: 206g
  • Bolt Pattern: 104

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good It's the usual Hope standard (high) Looks good weighs next to nothing and it protects my narrow wide chainring. 13 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's lightweight and it's a bashguard. Bought this to go with a Zee Cranks and Race Face Narrow Wide Chainring. Fits perfectly and looks good. As well as protecting the chain ring it helps keep stuff like laces or winter trousers catching in the chain. 11 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant Product!! Looks the nuts, and does exactly what it is supposed to. I use it for DH and AM, suits my needs perfectly. Highly recommend 03 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice had a few slaps of rocks still going cant fault it 29 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by smashing Excellent lightweight bash that looks very nice and can take a whack 26 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it's supposed to Works like a Charm, replaced my 44t chainring with this on my fatbike, hit a few rocks with it, still in good condition. And had the color I wanted. 18 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bash guard for the price Real good bash guard. Looks and feels awesome. I purchased the 'gun smoke' colour thinking it would be a dusty grey but it has a green tinge to it. Not really the colour I wanted but looks fine on my bike. Nothing bad to say about this product 16 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding product from hope as always! This is a wonderful bash guard on first appearance. Its has the usual machined look from Hope which I like. Its light and it looks good too. I have one that's a little used and there is bare alloy showing from impacts but its holding up well, I have ordered a smaller one as I am not running a double. I have fitted mine to the new Shimano SLX 10 speed triple. I thought there might be problems with the crank bolt holes being twisted (for aesthetics) but it fits fine, you can see a little of the crank flange behind it but its not bad at all, its a 104 fitting so no bother there. All that's left for me to comment on in durability, so we shall see how it copes. regards Mud Plugger 12 March 2014

Answer: 
Yes this would be fine but as with all bash guards; dropping the outer chainring would be required to make space for the bash guard.

Answer: 
Hope manufacture their bash guards to recommended 38t max but you can usually add one or two at a push, as you're running a 42, I'm afraid its just too much and wouldn't protect your chain ring at all.

Answer: 
As long as your older crankset has a chainring BCD (bolt centre diameter) of 104mm then this should be fine. You should be able to use the same chainrings bolts provided you have not damaged them upon removal.

Answers

Answer: 
I've had this Bash ring and the M980 Chainset into the office to check for you and can confirm that they will work together with a little alteration. The guide pin on the outer ring will need to be shortened/ removed to allow the Bash guard to fit effectively. The chainring bolts will need to be replaced for regular bolts, as the outer covers on the XTR chainset are not suitable for use with a bash guard.

Answer: 
Fitting a bash behind this crank spider will likely adjust the chainline and is not advised.

A chainguide with an integrated bash guard would likely be the better option.

I see that there is a version for 32-34t and one for 36-38t.
What is the differene?
Does the 36-38t one simply have a larger diameter?
I have a 32t chainring. If I get the 36-38t version will it help to keep my chain onto the chain ring?
Thanks.
