Interbike 2017 – K-Edge

by Brian Mullin on September 25, 2017

K-Edge was showing off their new 1x Chain Guide. It comes in a High Direct and ISCG 05 mount versions, which should cover the gamut of attachments for the 1x mountain, cross and gravel bikes.

The full-cage design works under abusive conditions and keeps the chain from popping off the chainring or getting sucked. The guide is fully adjustable for height, center-line, and angle and was optimized for 10, 11 and 12-speed drivetrain systems. Its CNC machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum uses stainless steel hardware and has no plastic parts (love that). It works with 28T to 34T chainrings and is made in Boise Idaho and comes with a Lifetime Guarantee against material or manufacturer defects.

The chainguard is a work of art and how everything fits together and adjusts is sublime. I was greatly intrigued that they didn’t use plastic in the design, which is usually a place that prematurely fails on most chainguards on the market.

They also have a newly machined adapter that fits Niterider lights, converting them to a Go-Pro universal mount system. To strengthen attaching things to their Go-Pro mounts they created machined aluminum thumbscrews that can be cranked down for security.
