Carbocage showed us their new dual ring and XX1-specific chainguides and bashrings. The DoubleX chainguide/bashguard features a dual lower pulley system and a chainring-style bashguard, all made out of carbon. The bashguard features an asymmetrical design which puts more material on the side of the guard exposed more often – it needs to be mounted according to the rider’s normal riding stance. The DoubleX is available in ISCG and ISCG05 mounts, weighs in at 130g and is sold at a price of EUR 169.
The Carbocage XX1 is a combination of a frame mounted, taco-style bashguard and a top-only chainguide made specifically for XX1. The entire product is made out of carbon, with aluminum reinforcement on the bottom of the bashguard. The XX1 weighs 35g without the taco and sells for EUR 69 – or 90g with the taco at a price of EUR 129. The company is working on a version for X01 – because of a clearance issue with the crank spider, the XX1 design needs to be modified to work with the X01.
