Reviews

The V2 Compact Chain Guide is light, simple, offers excellent chain security and mud clearance with silent retention. The guide has been designed around a unique modular design where you can run the guide and the bash together or independently. This also makes it possible to mix and match colours to give enough combos for even the fussiest rider.

The V2 Chain Guide has proven itself on the world stage with U21 EWS rider Brady Stone who is currently ranked 1st in the global rankings and also took an overall EWS stage win!

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 giving lots of adjustment where needed to get the the guide perfectly aligned with the chain.

  • Back plate precision CNC machined from 6082 Aluminium
  • The Slider is 3D printed from a hard-wearing, low friction material with good resistance to chemical attack.
  • Light and simple design
  • Compatible with oval chainrings
  • No need to remove cranks for installation
  • Includes black stainless steel hardware
  • Compatible with 28T to 36T chain rings
  • Cerakoted in house - available in 10 colours
  • Weight - From 38g
  • ISCG-05 Mount

CHAIN RETENTION CHECKLIST

Having issues with dropped chains? Run through the points below for complete chain security!

  • Use with a clutch mech, regularly check the tension.
  • Check your chain wear, a worn chain will increase chain drops and wear out your drivetrain faster.
  • Check your chain length, to slack and you will lose retention, to tight and the chain will break.
  • Keep you chain/bike clean and well lubricated.
  • Couple it with one of our thick thin chainrings.

  1. Paul Markham

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

  2. Jamie Brown

    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.

  3. Stephen Brown

    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.

  4. Steve fisher

    Ordered the chain guard due to an excellent review from pinned tv ..... looks good on the bike , a obvious,very well made product! Have just ridden with it on ..... great addition to my pride and joy ! Thank you unite

  5. Andrew Keyland

    Had the mark 1 which was very good this is even better extra security for very little weight gain have one on my hard tail and enduro. Good value to boot for high quality UK made piece of kit.

  6. Neil Goodwill

    Received my chain guide as promised. Great quality and easy to fit a quality piece of engineering.

  7. David Sheppard

    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.

  8. Chris banks

    Brilliant piece of kit. I was really impressed. Works very well.

  9. James fenton

    Really clean and simple guide. Fitted to a patrol as the bike seemed to drop chains a lot.
    Can get all gears without rubbing on gx eagle / 32 front.
    Didn’t need to remove cranks or anything to fit. Lots of spacers provided to get perfect alignment.

  10. Ed Meir

    Easy to fit, plenty of adjustment. Has to be rotated all the way to the front to clear the pivot on my frame (bird aeris AM9) but still does the job.
