The Presto Steel chain guide is a younger brother of flag product – Presto, which could be seen in several prestigious competitions like the Downhill World Championship and RedBull Rampage. The best available technologies have been used to develop one of the most reliable chain guides on the market. The design and development process was based on a years-long collaboration with the best Mountain Bike riders in the world like Darren Berrecloth, Vincent Tupin and Szymon Godziek. What makes Presto Steel different from Presto is the backplate. In this version, it’s made of high-quality steel of a special profile, thanks to which the tensioner is more rigid, durable and lightweight at the same time (199 grams). Other parts, like the guide plate and the bash guard, are the same as in the Presto model.
A completely new bash guard has been used in this chain guide. It has a unique system of fins inside it thanks to which the construction is characterized by high shock absorption. Before any kind of stress or tension can reach the frame, it is dispersed in the chain guide. What is also worth mentioning is its smooth surface – no mud or dust can stick to it and so it remains lightweight even on rainy days and on muddy trails.
In Spanish „presto” means „fast”. The name of the chain guide doesn’t refer only to the speed you can achieve with this particular chain guide, though. It also stands for how easy and fast it is to fit it on the bike. The device is equipped with a guide plate and can be installed in seconds. All you need to do is to loosen a screw, tilt one part of the guide, insert the crank in its place, close the device and screw tightly. And you don’t even need to take off the bike chain.
The Presto mtb chain guide is a quiet device – the link on the top guide has been secured with rubber and that’s why it doesn’t make any noise even on bumpy terrain. The pulley rolls on a sealed bearing and there are special openings in the guide plate that facilitate cleaning.
To ensure high durability and long use of mozartt.com components, all threads (including those in the chain guide materials) are made of metal.
