The Elevate Guard Sprocket is our new “team designed” solid sprocket, which uses the same VIPER Nylon Fiberglass bash guard and a patented interface that made our AK guard such a successful and game-changing product. For riders preferring the look of a solid sprocket but with the advantages of the Nylon guard, the Elevate is available in both 25t and 28t options.
One of the major design elements that have made this guard such a trustworthy and robust product, is the way that the Nylon guard is attached to the sprocket. Instead of sitting on the surface of the alloy sprocket, the Nylon guard is sunken INTO the structure of the sprocket and supported all the way around so that the bolt holes on the guard do not take all the impact.
The high-impact, low-friction material of the guard allows you to grind and slide on the sprocket in ways that a standard alloy guard wouldn’t let you – this also opens up the possibility of a whole new world of grind combinations.
