E.thirteen is on a mission to refine and perfect the chainguide. Pictured here are close to production prototypes. Expect the final versions to surface in May.

Sleeker profiles should make the guides work well with even more frames. Knowing that not all riders want or need a full guide, the lower Direct Mount Bashguard is removable and replaceable.

The upper slider is now easy to open without tools, which should help make chainring swaps and crank removal less of a hassle.

An updated polycarbonate material allows the use of any chain lube without worry of cracking. Next generation idler wheels help quiet the chainguide, as well as new co-molded rubber inside the guide.

New ISCG Shims will help eliminate the headache of dropping washers while trying to perfect your guide alignment. They'll come in 1 and 2.5mm thick sizes.
