The K-EDGE chain catcher is a precision component that enhances the overall function of your drive train while protecting your valuable frame. The K-EDGE is CNC machined in Boise, Idaho USA from 6061 T6 aluminum for durability and a clean mechanical finish that integrates with all high-end gruppos.
The K-Edge is a purposeful design that was engineered for a single goal: help Kristin Armstrong win the Gold at the 2008 Olympic Games. While we wouldn’t be so arrogant to suggest the K-Edge was the reason Kristin took gold, it’s a common sense design that provides functional and mental advantages for high performance cyclists. The K-Edge is also perfect for anyone who likes to keep their chain in place, improve shifting performance and protect their frame from damage caused by a derailed chain.
The original one-off K-Edge prototype was used in Kristin Armstrong’s 2008 Gold Medal Ride. It attracted enough attention from the pro cycling world that the new production K-Edge debuted in the Pro Tour peloton at the 2009 Paris-Roubaix.
Now the K-Edge is available for all cyclists. Improve your performance and protect your frame with one simple addition - The K-Edge Chain Catcher.
