Strengths:    This is for the SRS+. Doesn't drop chains. Pretty lightweight. Durable.

Weaknesses:    None, these things actually work.

Bottom Line:   
I had a cheap truvativ guide, with the thought that I'd eventually replace it. It happened sooner than I thought though due to the truvativ being utter crap. Once I got the SRS+ shimmed over correctly (took 2 rides) it worked perfectly. It's been great ever since with no dropped chains.

Strengths:    Super strong, no flex at all. Not too heavy for the strength.

Weaknesses:    bearings!!!

Bottom Line:   
Its a very good stiff strong chainguide. If i was a racer then the weight would probably be a weakness but as im not then its not. I have had this for 3 months and have now changed to the P30. admittedly this was a pretty wet british summer but that is no excuse for me to go through !!!3 SETS OF BEARINGS!!! in as many months. none of my other bearings last such a riciulous length of time and i do take very good care of my bike. Come on e13 whats wrong with you???

Strengths:    Light weight, sheds mud, bomb proof, never fails

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
The best all around chain guide setup on the market. The guys at e.13 really know what they are doing when it comes to keeping the drive train safe and working even after the roughest impacts. Will buy again and would recommend to anyone!

Date Reviewed: September 9, 2008

Strengths:    Slides over rocks, roots... anything really. The only time I've ever broken an SRS was when it was improperly installed on my bike... which happened once (came overtightened from the factory, cracked the gaurd). Comes in tons of colors these days, with plenty of variety for all your different bikes.

Weaknesses:    No 3 spd XC version.

Bottom Line:   
There isn't a better guide on the market. Say what you want about the company, but you can't argue with the performance and quality of the product.

Weaknesses:    Mud can get stuck in the chain ring and lock the chain. However if yo uclean your bike there will be no problems

Bottom Line:   
I will stand behind anything E13 does. As far as chain guides E13 is the only brand we sell at AllSpeed. Nothing more to say.

Date Reviewed: September 8, 2008

Strengths:    Set it and forget it!

Weaknesses:    Can damage your crank tabs it is so strong. Mud can get clogged behind the bashguard and in between the chainring.

Bottom Line:   
The SRS will outlast any other part of your bike! When properly set up, it is virtually impossible to ever lose a chain. Never have to think or worry about it, it is literally one of the only parts on any of my bikes that that can easily be said for!

If you are looking for a bit of a lighter weight system, or are running a fragile crankset, the LG-1 may be a better option.

Strengths:    The e.13 SRS chainguide does it all!! The bashguard protects your chainring like a charm, and the guide never drops your chain. What else can you ask for?

Weaknesses:    None!

Bottom Line:   
THE chainguide to buy, hands down!! e.13 is a company that supports the industry, supports the local/national/global scene, and has the ingenuity and drive to design (instead of copy) new products!! **ahem**MRP**

Strengths:    Everything. Good for grinds, doesn't damage stuff like a meatal bash. Chain never comes off. Lightweight. easy maintanence. doesn't stop me using gears on each end of cassette. Never needs adjustment...

Weaknesses:    small stones can get stuck behind the plastic bits that are attatched to the boomerang and that the chain rubs on. Chain rubs on plastic bits occasionally. quite expensive Makes lots of nasty noises when covered in mud.

Bottom Line:   
Buy it! don't even think about an MRP! This is awesome!

What do you think of the Sidi SRS System?

I wasn't sure where to post this but I know a lot of XC racers use Sidis. About 8 years ago I bout a pair Sidi Actions, or maybe Dragons. It had the SRS system when it first came out. It had a very soft grey rubber lug that literally wore down in all the key points in about a month. After that ... Read More »
