    Watch the Installation Instruction:

    All our chain guides are super easy to mount. You don´t even have to remove the crank. Just watch the video below and you will see how easy it is. You only need a T25 Key. When installing the chain guide use 3 Nm to tighten the Slider Screw (Blue) and 6 Nm for the M5 screws (Silver).

    absoluteBlack and 77designz

    The unique cooperation of absoluteBLACK (oval chainring expert) and 77designz (smart, ultralight chain guides manufacturer), resulted with entirely new product that is incredibly light, mounts in no time, secures the oval chainring at any position of the pedal and can be opened by hand if there is a need of chain removal.
