At MRP... RACING IS OUR MIDDLE NAME MRP has been the pioneer and leader of high quality chain guide systems since 1996. From the original System 1 to our new flagship G2 SL guides, MRP is the consistent choice of the worlds best riders in every discipline on the mountain. Just ask the legends of the sport what chain guide they insist on using year after year. The answer is always “MRP” for their quality, dependability, and reliability. For 2011 we are pleased to to offer what we believe is our greatest product lineup yet. We’ve improved upon previous designs to now offer the G2 SL and all-new System 4 (S4). We’ve also expanded our lighter, XC and AM oriented lineup. We’ve added new versions of our popular 1X guide to fit nearly any bike on the market and worked closely with World Champion Brian Lopes to develop his new signature guide, the Lopes SL.
NOW IN MORE TASTY FLAVORS
Introduced just two years ago, the 1X has become pretty standard kit for XC riders ready to drop some weight! We’ve expanded the lineup with models to fit nearly any bike. Our seat tube mount option is availible in two varieties to fit both mountain bikes and cyclocross bikes. Additionally, we’re offering a new Shimano FD-Mount version that provides and elegant, stiff, and bloody simple way to join the 1X revolution!
The evolution continues. The all new G2 SL and Mini G2 SL are stronger, easier to set up, and 30% lighter than their predecessors. From top to bottom, they have been redesigned and improved. • • •
A more compact, lower profile upper guide reduces noise from chain slap while improving fit on bikes that have tight clearance tolerances with frame members. The lower guide is more compact, lighter and stronger than previous models. Our patented skid is tapered and relieved in multiple areas to provide the lightest, most durable, and best fitting bash guard possible. In short, there is material where it’s needed, and not much where it’s not. The backplate has been redesigned to reduce weight and add stiffness. It also features laser etching to aid in setup and identify which mounting standard you’re holding in your hands. Captive alloy hardware is present on the backplate, making for easy setup. No more having to hold onto the nut on back of the backplate when tightening. The guide fixing bolts use a 4mm allen key for easy adjustment and resistance to stripping out. They are pretreated with a threadlock material to prevent loosening.

The guide that helped Brian Lopes win his fifth-consecutive alr DH race at Crankworx 2010 is now available! The Lopes SL represents the lightest full chain retention system on the market. At just 100 grams the Lopes SL guide is the obvious choice for 4X, slalom, or allmountain riders willing to sacrifice bash protection, but not chain retention, in the name of weight savings.

TRADITION MEETS TECHNOLOGY
Based on our original, patented dualroller “system” design, the S4 is the very definition of refinement. Improvements include captive hardware (no more searching for dropped nuts and bolts), smaller and lower profile rollers, and a weight-optimized bash guard. The S4 is the ideal choice for riders wishing for crank mounted bash protection and the absolute easiest setup with minimal hardware.
