Project AM/Enduro: cSixx Doubler Chain Guide – FIRST LOOK

cSixxDoubler3As we gear up to complete Project AM/Enduro, a few goodies arrived from South Africa’s cSixx.  Since we will be running a 2×10 drivetrain from Shimano and FSA, this will be a welcome addition in not only chain management but also bash protection.  We have been running cSixx’s 175g guide on our Project DH with great success.  It has taken some very solid hits and  stayed intact.  We expect no less from the Doubler since it utilizes the same bash ring.  In leu of rollers they went with a stepped polymer slider that has a metal guide down the center to aid in keeping the chain aligned on the appropriate front ring.  The slider also has a large range of adjustment, from 34t all the way to 42t.  The Doubler has a straight forward design similar to all of the other guides on the market, so no fancy trinkets.  Just simple, light and strong protection for your Am/Enduro rig.  The Doubler can also be had in a handful of colors for the hardware, black, blue, red, gold and green are your choices.

cSixxDoubler4Made from Carbon fiber and moulded to fit precisely within 2×10 drivetrains.  cSixx still supplies a lot of extra spacers and bolts to make sure they will fit any frame out there with the proper ISCG05 mounting.  The Doubler also has a shark fin up top of the inner guide to help prevent the chain from falling to the inside of the cranks.  Lightweight aluminum hardware also keeps things light.  Offered in to sizes, both a 36t bash guard and a 40t bash guard, ours came in at 167g (though the site states 148g, we are assuming that is for the smaller of the two sizes – ours is the 40t version).  cSixx’s Doubler comes in at $199 for the carbon wonder piece.  You can find the cSixx Doubler and the rest of the line at www.oneghost.com.
