The XCG Series of guards are designed to protect chainrings and cranks from damage due to the occasional rock or log encounter. They consist of a replaceable polycarbonate Skid direct-mounted to a 4mm thick alloy back plate. With an XCG Triple, you can keep the big chainring on and not worry about damaging it on obstacles. The XCG Triple is lightweight, and costs a lot less than replacing a high quality 44T ring, so it's a great accessory for the fast and technically aggressive XC rider or for any rider looking to protect their investment. It also has an upper chain-saver section to prevent the chain from falling off towards the inside.
The XCG Triple is easy to install on the vast majority of XC frames and add no rotational weight to the drivetrain.
