Max from Reverse talks through the highlights from our 2020 range.

All products will be available to purchase in Reverse dealers and online stores soon, US dollar pricing to follow soon also.

Travel and Sag Indicator 

Travel and Sag Indicator for the ideal coil shock setup

The sag indicator is simple tool to measure the amount of travel you are using on your coil shock while you are riding, and to get the ideal sag measurement. An external shaft is held in place at the top and bottom of your shock, with an "o" ring to show how much travel you are using. The Travel and Sag Indicator can be used on the bike for the testing period when setting up your bike to check if you are using the correct spring rate, zip tie it on, do some runs and see how much preload you need or if you need a higher/lower rate spring. For setting sag, simply measure where the “O ring” has reached with a ruler and compare to a sag chart. This saves time and is much easier to get an accurate reading. Perfect for bike shops and suspension tuners.


Steerer Clamp


The steerer clamp is a headset spacer with an additional clamping function, designed to go underneath your stem for double security. Not only does this ensure that your headset holds well, it's ideal for working/traveling with your bike. If you have the bike in the work stand, you can tighten the steerer clamp and I'll hold everything in place when you loosen your stem and headset. If you're removing/turning your bars for traveling, this'll keep everything in place until you arrive at your destination.

 Angle Spacer 

0.5 ° Angle Spacer for Tapered Forks

In 2019 we launched our 0.5 ° Angle Spacer for tapered forks. This simple spacer sits in place of your crown race at the bottom of your steerer, raising the height by 10mm, equating to a half degree slacker head angle. Instead of upgrading fork or changing internals, this allows you to modify your geometry very quickly and easily.

1 1/8-inch Angle spacer + Tapered Angle Spacer
0.5 ° Angle Spacer for DH Bikes

For 2020, we expanded this range to include an Angle Spacer for straight 1-1/8-inch steerer tube single crown forks and a wider, sealed, DH version to sit flush on wide DH headtubes, allowing riders with these setups to also benefit from this geometry tweak.

DH Angle Spacer € 19.90 | 1 1/8” Angle Spacer € 12.90  | Tapered steerer € 12.90 

Singlespeed kit for XD Drivers

Singlespeed kit and Chain Tensioner


The chain tensioner + singlespeed kit combo has proven popular with our freeriders and bike park fans across Europe and the USA. The singlespeed kit allows all you to convert your normal HG style hub to a singlespeed setup with an oversized 7mm wide flange (standard is 2.8mm) for less freehub wear, coupled with a chain tensioner to keep everything running tight and smooth with a full suspension bike. Compatibility: 9/10/11 speed chains and 13-17T sprockets.

 SS Kit €25.90 | Chain Tensioner RRP €69.90


Black One D-2 Stem


Simplicity was the driver for the creation of the Black One D-2 stem. D-2 standing for 2 Diameters, this stem allows riders to choose between 31.8mm and 35mm bars with the same stem. A simple, carefully designed shim fits inside the stem for use with 31.8mm bars and when removed, it fits 35mm. Ideal for riders who have a few sets of bars with different rises and want to continue using them all, or who may upgrade to a 35mm set in the future without having to buy another stem. Available in 35mm and 50mm lengths. Production models will feature an all-black shim.

Flip Guide


Available for ISCG05 and Bosch Gen 4 / Shimano E Bike systems, the Flip Guide is our latest minimalist chainguide solution which allows the user to make quick adjustments and "flip" the guide out of the way by hand when removing the crank. By hand, you can flip the upper guide out of the way and into the "service" position for easy chain cleaning and crank removal if necessary. When done, flip it back down into the "riding" position and it will firmly lock into place, keeping the chain secure on the roughest of tracks!

For secondary adjustments, the Flip guide has a clever spring loaded micro adjustment system allows fine tuning of the top guide via the Allen bolt to get it sitting within the chain line perfectly - simply thread in to bring closer or thread out to move it further away.


Thanks for your time - further info is available on our website. Cheers! Reverse Components
