The HXR Steel chain guide is a younger brother of HXR, which could be seen in several prestigious competitions like the Downhill World Championship and RedBull Rampage.
The HXR was supposed to be used in less demanding mountain-biking disciplines like enduro and cross-country. It turned out quickly, though, that thanks to its lightweight design, the drivetrain security it provides, and no additional rolling resistance it has become extremely popular among downhill biking teams.
The HXR works quietly and, as mentioned above, it doesn’t generate any additional resistance. None of its design elements touch the mobile parts of the drivetrain.
Installing the chain device is simple and takes just a few minutes. The bash guard can be easily removed with one wrench – just in case any emergencies on the trail. Plug & Play is mozartt policy! The top cage has been equipped with an easy mounting system which, paired with the specially designed back panel, enables a fuss-free removal of the chain, crank gear and the chain guide itself.
What makes HXR Steel different from HXR 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 (119 grams). Other parts, like the guide plate and the bash guard, are the same as in the all HXR models.
The HXR is supposed to protect the chainring and the crank against any damage caused during aggressive rides on demanding terrain. Now you can enjoy downhill rides even more – stones shooting from under the tire, rocks on the trail and accidental crashing into protruding roots won’t take away the pleasure from riding anymore.
In the box, you’ll find an extra set of chain guides designed for oval chainrings. No more chains jumping off no matter what chainring you’re using!
