Colorado chain guidance company MRP has announced that the prototype guide seen aboard XC podium toper, Adam Craig's bike, is to be available via Ison shortly.

Developed with input from some of the world’s most demanding riders including Adam Craig and Ross Schnell, the 1.X was designed to allow cross-country riders to take advantage of the huge weight savings (a full pound or more) and simplicity of a 1x9 drivetrain without having to worry about their chain falling off.

Craig had this to say about the 1.X: "I'm committed to running the 1.X while Mountain Biking because it does exactly what I expect of the rest of my bike: Works without knowing it's there. Quiet, simple chain retention and less moving parts to think about."

The 1.X guide can be seen on MRP’s booth at Crankworx Colorado from July 30th to August 2nd 2009.
