The Compact Guide V2 is a light, simple chain-guide, that offers excellent chain security and mud clearance with silent retention. The slider has been designed to offer the perfect balance between weight, chain retention and durability, the open design offers excellent mud clearance. The slider is 3D printed from a high-tech engineering plastic, which is not only incredibly strong, but also offers excellent chemical resistance from bike cleaners/polishes and chain lubes.

The back plate is CNC machined from 6082 aluminium, the use of two fitment points not only saves weight but also makes it possible to fit the chain-guide without removing the cranks. Because of the large array of different chain lines, we have designed the guide to include the use of spacers on the slider and on the frame mounts so you have lots of adjustment if needed to get the the guide perfectly aligned with the chain. Stainless hardware and spacers are included as standard.

The Back plate is available in 7 different colours!

  • Back plate precision CNC machined from 6082 Aluminium

    Easy to fit and set up guide, well made, top quality, looks professional and keeps chain in check on chain ring.

    I’ve only recently fit my chain guide to my latest dream build bike so this is not a long term test review, but from my initial impression when I first opened the packaging I was really impressed with the build quality and the detail. Fitting the item was super simple thanks the the properly engineered shims that just hook and slot into place, rather than having to dick around with individual little washer like with other brands of chain guides. Up to now the guide has performed excellently so I’m more than confident it will stand the test of time too.

    Very well made and easy to fit. Shims instead of washers for spacing off the ISCG mount makes the chain device easy to fit, and it can be fitted without removing the cranks.
    It is lightweight, solid and well made.

    Massive step on from the previous guide Unite launch their brand with. Easy to fit with plenty of chain line adjustment. CNC work is stunning. I’d love to see a little more design work on the polymer guide piece, just feels a bit budget on what is otherwise a stunning piece of kit.
