MRP announces new carbon fiber AMG chainguide

Two options fit 28-32t and 32-38t rings

MRP has released a new carbon fiber-enhanced version of its AMG single-ring chainguide, dropping the weight from around 125g down to 105g. According to MRP, the switch from an aluminum to a carbon fiber backplate also improves impact durability.

As on the standard AMG, the AMG Carbon features a nylon upper guide with MRP's 'Quietring' wrap to decrease noise, a lower skid built into the backplate, and no lower guide at all since MRP intends for this to be used with the latest crop of clutch-equipped rear derailleurs.

MRP makes the carbon backplates in house

MRP will offer the AMG Carbon in versions to fit both 28-32T chainrings and 32-38T ones. Suggested retail price is US$150 – a US$50 upcharge over the standard aluminum AMG.

James started as a roadie in 1990 with his high school team but switched to dirt in 1994 and has enjoyed both ever since. Anything that comes through his hands is bound to be taken apart, and those hands still sometimes smell like fork oil even though he retired from shop life in 2007. He prefers manual over automatic, fizzy over still, and the right way over the easy way.
  • Discipline: Mountain, road, cyclocross
  • Preferred Terrain: Up in the Colorado high-country where the singletrack is still single, the dirt is still brown, and the aspens are in full bloom. Also, those perfect stretches of pavement where the road snakes across the mountainside like an artist's paintbrush.
  • Beer of Choice: Mexican Coke
  • Location: Boulder, Colorado, USA
