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 4.8 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
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

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hope Lightweight Bash Guard Hope Lightweight Bash Guard、自分も使ってるんですが 友達がかなり気に入り、違う色の購入を頼まれ買いました 実際、岩にぶつけましたが、しっかりガードとして機能してました 12 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful, strong, light what else do i need to say? quality is of usual hope standard, there are cheaper, but none of such high quality, buy it. 28 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well made and finished, looks good. This was better than I hoped for, it was perfect actually. Why... well I bought this to put on my Zerode G2 as I had a rock fling up, strike and damage the chainring. Now, the Zerode has its chainring spaced out from the cranks by 2 spacers on each chainring bolt because it runs an alfine hub as a gearbox within the frame. This Hope bash guard was exactly the same thickness as the spacers, so I was able to use the bash guard as a direct replacement for the spacers and keep the chain line to the gearbox straight. Awesome!!. It works pretty well as a bash guard too, not too sure how well it would go if I were to case a jump or something hard onto it though. 02 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome product! I use this for Downhill, it looks great and is a very good quality product, buy it! 01 January 2014

Will it fit ?

I am running an older XTR x3 crankset , can I replace the larger outer chain ring with this bash guard to make it a x2 and if so would it work with original bolts or will I need anything else.

Thanks

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.

Answer: 
The M785 double crankset does not have suitable profile/ clearance between the spider and crank arm to allow the fitting of a bash guard.

Answer: 
The B.C.D. (Bolt Circle Diameter) for both the Firex 3.0/3.3 crankset and this bash guard are both 104mm; so they should be compatible.
