2016 MRP AMG V2 Chainguide Preview | 2015 Eurobike

While today’s chain retaining chainrings and clutch equipped derailleurs do a superb job of keeping your chain on, you can’t take chances out in the mountains and that’s where the good old chain guide comes in. But unlike traditional chain guides, the AMG V2 from MRP is designed to work with today’s efficient transmission systems adding extra security from stump and rock strikes while the upper cage adds an additional level of insurance should your chain jump and skip on aggressive terrain.

ODI Rogue Grips

ODI Rogue Lock-On Grips By: Vineet Sharma Also featured in Issue #13 | Jan 2013   There may be other grips on the market, but ODI makes some of the very best grips till date and that’s why ODI Rogue lock-on grips are probably the most impressive grips we have ever used. The soft rubber blocks are designed to cushion the blow that even the longest-travel fork can’t absorb. And since each block has a subtle file texture, they work great with gloves or without.

Maxxis Cross Mark

Maxxis Cross Mark By: Vineet Sharma Also featured in Issue #12 | Nov 2012 Many riders love this tire, many hate it too. We spent last month testing the 26 X 2.10 Maxxis Cross Mark which offers a nearly continuous center ridge for low rolling resistance on hardpack dirt, with enough spacing to grab wet rocks or roots. Slightly raised side knobs add cornering grip. We must admit that it’s faster than any tire we’ve ever checked and really good for light off roading. Cross Mark delivers outstanding straight line…
