e*thirteen Comes Through With New Colorways Chainrings


e*thirteen wants to help make your bike look awesome. How can we do this you might ask?

With Colorways Guiderings of course!

e*thirteen has a history of making sweet chainrings. In 2004 e*thirteen designed and released its first Guidering as a supplement to its already popular Single Ring Security chain retention systems. The 3mm thick 7075 chainring allowed for a perfect setup of all single ring chainguides on the market. It not only boasted a lifespan of more than an entire race season but was also the lightest on the market, weighing only 37.26 grams for the 36T size.

By 2007 e*thirteen had recognized the need for racers to more finely tune their drivetrains for specific race courses. So in early 2008 e*thirteen released its now popular odd sized Guiderings. By adding 33t, 35t, 37t and 39t options e*thirteen had once again pushed into an area where few had ventured in the past. The odd chainring sizes took a firm hold in both the downhill racing scene as well as in the single speed, fixie and cross country scenes.

Now in 2009 e*thirteen is doing something new and different purely for riders’ enjoyment. With the introduction of the Colorways Guidering program, riders and racers can bling out their favorite machines. e*thirteen is now offering all its Guidering sizes in a multitude of colors. The classic Silver Bullet and Jet Black will remain and the addition of Delta Gold, Red Rocket, PG Green, Grape Drink and Blue Steel will serve to round out the selection of the lightest, strongest, longest lasting AND NOW BEST LOOKING! chainrings on the market today.


Guiderings-
•Long lasting 7075-T6 aluminum construction
•3mm width optimized for use with any chainguide system
•0.5mm tooth step for perfect chainline alignment
•Chainring nut recess allows for more chainguide clearance
•8 spd, 9 spd and 10 spd compatible
•Also ideal for single speed use
•Odd sizes allow for precise gear ratio tuning
•37 grams (36T)

e.thirteen components is a small, rider-owned and operated company that strongly supports dozens of grassroots races, series, contests and other riding events all over the world every year. Founded in 2001, e.thirteen’s innovative, functional, simple and lightweight chain retention systems have made them a world leader in this category, and the choice of top pro and amateur riders and mechanics alike. They support a worldwide distribution network and take great pride in offering devoted customer service.

 Ok so I know someone is going to hate for this comment, BUT.... what the hell is taking so long? Why is it that it took all the way up to 2009/2010 lineups for mtb companies to start deciding to add colour to their products? (while BMX companies have done it for years).

People get so excited by a colour change in sprockets...this should've been available years ago (maybe it was, I don't pay attention all that often...must be the ADD lol).

So just wondering if anyone sees ym point?

PS I AGREE! THEY LOOK SICK! BUT.... why so long and why all the hubbub when it's not that much of a revelation?
