New Products: Gamut Trail SXC Chainguide – Jet Roll MTB – Wahoo Tickr HRM
Who cares if you have a narrow-wide chainring; it’s still possible to drop a chain. The Trail SXC is a nice, subtle guide that will fit almost any type of guide mount. The Trail SXC weighs 52 grams for the high-direct mount and varies within a couple grams for the other mounting options. At a mere $60 this guide is a slam dunk, especially considering how costly guides can get. Check out www.gamutusa.com to see the full range of fit options.
The Jet Roll MTB is a slick way to store the essentials you’ll need for a mechanical emergency on the trail. The canvas material and leather strap roll up and fit under the saddle. The Jet Roll can store a tube, a CO2 inflator, tire levers, a patch kit and some extra cash. It is made in the good ol’ USA and retails for $55 at www.justenoughtools.com.
Wahoo has been making fitness devices for every occasion, and the new TICKR heart rate monitor will work with just about anything. The TICKR is ANT+- and Bluetooth-compatible, so whether you’re using a Garmin or your phone, this HRM will work. Go from the treadmill to the bike without swapping devices. The TICKR ranges from $60–$100 and can be found at your local shop.
