Greetings. I'm getting a Race Face bash guard for my Yeti 575. I dirt only (no urban), trail/freeride, and when I bash it's rocks or logs.

Pros / cons of aluminum vs. plastic? Which is recommended? Thanks!

. . .plastic (poly-whatever-thane). It seems like the plastic slides better over rocks/roots. It seems like strength and durability would be an issue but the plastic is surprisingly strong. Three years later and I'm still running the same e-thirteen although it serves more as a guide than protection - after all this time there are only a few knicks and scratches.
