MRP and e*thirteen shake hands in an effort to independently further innovation within the chain retention field. - Fred

Press Release // Grand Junction, CO // April 28, 2015 – Chainguide market leaders MRP and e*thirteen have entered into a co-licensing agreement that covers their respective intellectual property relating to the direct mount bashguard.

Used extensively in both companies’ product lines since 2007, the direct mount bashguard protects critical drivetrain components and provides several advantages over the traditional crank-mounted bashguard. Many World Champions in the disciplines of Four-Cross, Downhill, and Enduro have run chainguides utilizing direct mount bashguards.

The agreement will allow both companies to focus independently on continuing innovation, while working together to address any infringing designs that are in the market.

"It's no secret that over the last few seasons we've seen more and more chainguides come to market that are, in the nicest terms possible, tributes to our designs. We're hoping with this new agreement that we can continue to independently keep innovating the field of chain retention and together keep infringing designs from coming to market." - Noah Sears, MRP
