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.
Last Sunday, for my 45th birthday DH day, I wanted a little extra control so …
Behold the ZipGuide!
Now with DualZip Technology for redundant redundancy.
It was noisy, but it worked fine.
Know more. Have more fun!

redundant redundancy FTW!
You’ve been riding with me too much – now you’re breaking parts too!
Kevin, your power is rubbing off … and so is your steeze!
What would be more bad ass? DHing on Enduro, or enduroing on a Demo?
Enduroing on a Demo for sure.
The Specialized Enduro is a small downhill bike that happens to climb, so DHing one is not a stretch — at least not at my level.
