We are especially proud of our guides being mounted and assembled with grade 5 titanium bolts. The bolts are designed to withstand the hardest of rocks. Extra firm, ultra-lightweight and corrosion-free, they guarantee the ultimate ride.
With three points of impact dispersion, the taco is designed to absorb the hardest of hits. Titanium hardware is used to tighten all the parts of the chain guide – with minimum amount of weight.
Reverse C or open-mount system was developed and implemented first in Shovel products. It allows mounting and removing the chain guide in a matter of seconds. No hassle, only smart engineering.
Aluminium guides are coloured by anodising. This process ensures that the colour of your guide will not fade; it will be able to take many hits and a lot of washing of your beast. After a lot of research and development, only paint that can match our criteria comes from Switzerland. We can offer you blue, red, titanium/olive and black.
Space-grade aluminium 7075 T651 with 4 mm of thickness is tough enough to take on the hardest of lines, without compromise.
Ultra-light German CF is used in our entire ultimate product line. Best toughness-to-weight ratio and pure bike porn look.
