OneUp Expands Chain Guide Range

OneUp Components Guide Range

Building on the success of the ISCG-05 Chain Guide, OneUp Components have added two new guides to their line: The OneUp Bash Guide ($79 USD) and the ultra-light OneUp Low Direct Mount Guide ($32 USD). At OneUp Components, we believe chain guides don't need to be expensive, heavy or difficult to set-up.

OneUp Components Bash Guide

OneUp Bash Guide


The OneUp Bash Guide was developed with input from EWS World Champions, Richie Rude, and Jared Graves. Reinforced Nylon bash guards and a back plate cut from 8mm thick 7075-T6 aluminum, ensure that the OneUp Bash Guide can handle the biggest hits, but at a weight of only 102g (34T), you may forget it’s even there.

So far in 2016, the OneUp Bash Guide has been on the winning bike for the first two EWS rounds and has more EWS stage wins than all other chain guides combined. We're excited to see the Yeti Cycles and Rocky Mountain Bicycles Urge BP Rally Teams continue to rack up the wins as the season progresses.

bigquotesLight, strong and does its job. The Bash Guide has saved me a few times now and I don't think I will go back. - Jesse Melamed, Rocky Mountain Bicycles Urge BP Rally Team

Guide

With class-leading strength, a weight less than most carbon guides and costing just $79 USD, we think you’ll agree that nothing else comes close.

Do I need a bash?
As the trend for lower and slacker bikes continues, chainring protection is becoming more important. The OneUp Bash Guide uses the same simple, one tool installation and adjustment as our best-selling ISCG-05 Chain Guide, but adds more protection where you need it.

Not just for Trail and Enduro Bikes
The OneUp Bash Guide is equally at home on your downhill bike. With the popularity of clutch derailleurs, it is no longer necessary to run a chain guide with a lower roller to tension your chain. DH racers and Bike Park rippers will appreciate the reduction in drag with the elimination of the lower roller, without sacrificing strength or chain retention.

Install
The install is quick and easy with no need to remove your cranks. Perfect chain line setup is a breeze using the front loading chainline shims which space the top guide rather than the back plate. This means no guess work or messing around with annoying hard to reach ISCG washers

A full selection of spare parts is available from oneupcomponents.com.



OneUp Low Direct Mount Guide

OneUp Low Direct Mount Guide (S3/E-Type)


The OneUp Low Direct Mount Guide is the ideal chain guide for weight conscious trail riders and XC racers who want more chain security for their 1x drivetrains. Weighing just 20g and with an MSRP of $32 USD, the OneUp Low Direct Mount Guide is cheap insurance to guarantee you'll never drop another chain while also extending your chainring life. Includes backplates in three sizes 28-32, 32-34 and 36T and both green and black "Bird" top guides.

 Yes! One Up is my favorite company, I love to see a business growing like that! I just wanted to buy my first chain guide since 2010 and then I saw the prices and got shocked and stunned... 150€ for a MRP or E*13 chain guide with taco and upper guide, Europe's cheapest site. 240 for carbon version. So this OneUp is a bargain. I wish they announced it 3 weeks earlier...

 I've been really impressed with what I've seen and used from One Up too, really chuffed to see em expanding their product lines. Can't be long before they have a whole drivetrain for us?

 Prices are ok considering these guides are mostly made of plastic, wich I guess is good to control noise and weight, and allow them as small company to compete with others by lowering prices.

 At firce glance they seem pretty expensive (for the small amount of material needed) - then you compare the pricing with e.g. MRP and find out that their S3/Directmount single guide costs twice as mutch, and e13 is even more expensive. Good move, OneUp!

 I paid almost 50€ For bloody MRP taco only version. If this came out earlier I'd buy it right away
  • + 13
 I've never understood why people think the amount of material should have any bearing whatsoever on the price of a component. The design, engineering and marketing forms the basis for most of the cost, the actual manufacturing and raw materials are a pittance by comparison. I have the original OneUp chainguide, one of their NW rings, a RADr cage and a 42t ring and the stuff is amazingly well built, thoughtfully designed and light.

 "As the trend for lower and slacker bikes continues, chainring protection is becoming more important."

If the trend continues you are going to need bash guards for your feet also. Bike are becoming to low these days to pedal over and through rough terrain.

 I have one on my bike for several months now together with an oval chainring, very efficient and well placed in terms of price. Does the job perfectly!

 How does it work with an Oval Chainring? Do you just set it for its highest point in its rotation?

 All three guides are oval compatible (including the bash). Checkout the video below to see it in action.

 I like the front install (no need to remove cranks let alone bb) and shimming just the top guide-approach. Mechanic-friendly.

 shimming the bottom is going to make it weaker, too. Sturdier design, not having to shim it.

 I like the look of the One-Up top guide and have been waiting to see this top guide with bash and it doesn't look to good. But of course looks aren't everything and it's good that it comes with 3 sizes of bash plates included. Absolute Black's lower bash looks good and I am looking forward to seeing their top guide and/or top guide with bash.

 What about high direct mount [DM] option?

 Unfortunately, I don't need this. I'm not that hard or fast of a rider that I've ever had a dropped chain on my 1x11 system. Embarrassing I know.

 Damn, just OneUp'd every other chainguide there is lol.... good work!

 So each kit includes 2 top pieces and 3 pieces that attach to the frame? Does that mean that you can equip 2 bikes with one kit?
  • + 0
 No, they offer 3 different versions.
  • + 9
 Each kit does include two top guides and three backplate sizes. You would be a few bolts short of equipping two bikes however.

 @Endurahbrah: yes as long as your running two different size chainrings and pick up two more M5 screws you can do it.

Surely you would need a second backplate to equip two bikes... ?

 love. they only feel weird for the first time you use them for about 5 minutes. i barely see any difference for most applications - sitting pedaling feels no more efficient like some oval ring makers claim. it's when you are standing, attacking an uphill section that these things truly feel like cheating - i've finally managed to get over uphill obstacles i never before had enough speed to clear on short punchy climbs

 What happened to 1x not needing any chain retention help... That's 2/3 of a front derailleur. Yeah its lighter but its basically
the FDR cage that doesn't move.
  • + 1
 How does a guide increase the life of your chainring?
  • + 1
 As your narrow wide chainring wears, the chain retention gets worse, when the wide teeth get narrower. You'll start dropping chains before the teeth of your ring are worn down. Running a guide, eliminates dropped chains forever, so you now only need to replace your ring when the teeth are worn down.

 Dear one up please do a round race Face cinch chain ring. Thanks

 Will a 32t oval work with the 32 bash, or do you need to size up?
  • + 1
 The bash guide comes with 3 bash plates (28-30, 32-34, 36). You will want to up size the bash. for a 32T ring you want to run a 34T bash.

 Is it only boost and oval ring compatib, will my race face ring work?

 It is non-boost and round compatible as well. Your RF ring will work fine.
