The ZipGuide: not fancy, but it does the trick


I’ve never had an issue with the clutch on my XTR rear derailleur, but I appreciate a little extra confidence when I’m DHing on my S-Works Enduro 29.


The initial build had a Gamut dual-ring guide, which has always been bombproof.

Because of a bottom bracket spacing issue, a mechanic removed the Gamut and installed a Bionicon c.guide, which zip ties onto the chain stay. This device worked fine — until it blew to pieces.

Behold the ZipGuide!

Now with DualZip Technology for redundant redundancy.

It was noisy, but it worked fine.


Know more. Have more fun!
