Innovative chainguard system. The combination of shock-resistant plastic elements and SKS Chromoplastics Technology gives the products strong advantages: Extremely lightweight, higher stability, material identical to mudguard - perfect optical fusion and uniform design.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Scheele Great quality product from SKS but doesn't fit
Really wanted this to fit but it just rubbed my outer 48 tooth no matter how much fiddling I gave it. A shame because it is quality.
Anyway Ive switched to an old skool bottom bracket so this won't fit anyway as it needs external bearing bb to fit between.

Rated 5 out of 5 by freerudi Chain guard that protects the chain!
I purchased this to install on my 1 x 10 speed hardtail which I ride during the winter when it is generally very muddy.
This works really well at keeping the mud, which is chucked up by the front and rear tyres, off the chain and front chain ring thus reducing chain wear due to the muddy paste which grinds into your transmission.
It is reasonably simple to install and once set up it works well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Nice but a bit tricky to install
This works well as an aftermarket chainguard but be aware that it takes a bit of fettling to get it installed properly. On my 16in bike it required to be
* Cut down a bit to fit the small frame
* the metal bracket to be bent back towards the frame a little to prevent fouling the inner chainring on a triple
* On the outermost chainring I had a pin that sat between the ring and the crank to catch the chain if it dropped off. This had to be cut off as it rubbed the inside of the chain guard (I have a 42 tooth chainring and was using the 42-44 tooth chainguard)
* The rear bracket needed padded out with a bit of rubber as it was a little to wide to be properly tightened against the chainstay
None of these are real issues, just be aware that it really needs to be carefully fitted to the bike to avoid rubbing
