Why do we offer a Chainguide?
While our oval chainrings, with Absoluteblack’s own patent pending narrow/wide teeth profiles, don't require any chain retention to keep the chain firmly in its correct position, there are still riders who feel safer with some form of backup and extra insurance that their chain will remain securely located. If you ride in demanding terrain, love rock gardens and jumps, or simply want to feel extra safe, our new OVAL GUIDE™ is for you. It's extremely light, small and easy to mount. It's designed to guarantee chain retention, but at the same time made to be almost invisible.
Fully compatible with Oval chainrings
Absoluteblack Oval Guide™ is the Only chainguide on the market that is designed specifically for Oval chainrings. Extremely light and versatile, the Oval Guide™ chain guide secures the chain movement at every single crank position. The Oval Guide™ is also the lightest product of its kind on the market
Our Oval Guide™ chainguide can accommodate any chainline between 48-53mm. That means it fits from 1X setup with 49mm chainline to Boost specific 52mm chainline and more. Chainline is adjustable in 0.5mm increments, with 4 included spacers 0.5, 1, 2 and 3.5mm.
Tool Free - Front Flip Technology
Our chain guide has a tool free movable front part of the cage. You can access the chain using your hands only. If you ever need to make small adjustments on the trail after a crash or broken chain, you don't have to worry about removing the Oval Guide™. You simply flip the outer section of the guide with your fingers, which will give you free access to the chain. Once you’ve made adjustments, you flip it back.
Our chain guide can accept oval chainrings from 26-34T and round rings from 28-36T. Small markers on the side of the back-plate show the ideal position of the guide for your desired chainring size.
