The MRP has been a favourite chain guide with us for years now, and a regular in the Dirt 100 line up, appearing again for 2017 as a benchmark in design and reliability.
MRP has been producing chain guides since the beginning and if you look back to the 90s, you can trace their evolution; the aluminium guide with an orange roller being an iconic design. They are part of the history and lineage of mountainbike hardware.
How then does the latest MRP G4 Chainguide compare?
MRP may well have expanded their product range (with suspension forks being their latest offering) but they have not overlooked the chain guides – it’s a massive part of what they do. We now have the latest G4 with some subtle but important improvements over the ever-popular G3. So what’s new, and why is the latest guide from MRP still at the top of our list?
