OneUp has been a compnay to watch and this was the first year they had a booth at Sea Otter. They brought their new products for everyone to see including a 50t chainring, a 10t adapter for DT Swiss hubs, and more. Gamut also had their products on display and inside we take a look at some of the items both had on display.
Shark 10-12T Cluster and OneUp MiniDriver
OneUp had their 10-12t cluster which works with a MiniDriver and allows users to convert their hubs to run a small 10t cog on a DT Swiss (or Hope) compatible freehub. It’ll be available shortly (this month) and works in conjunction with a Shimano cassette and the a large Shark tooth or similar sprocket to get you a 10-50t range or similar 11 speed drivetrain.
OneUp recently expanded thier chain guide range as well. Building on the success of the ISCG-05 Chain Guide, OneUp Components have added two new guides to their line:
The OneUp Bash Guide ($79 USD)
The ultra-light OneUp Low Direct Mount Guide ($32 USD)
OneUp Bash Guide
The OneUp Bash Guide was developed with input from EWS World Champions, Richie Rude and Jared Graves. Reinforced Nylon bash guards and a back plate cut from 8mm thick 7075-T6 aluminum, ensure that the OneUp Bash Guide can handle the biggest hits, but at a weight of only 102g (34T) you may forget it’s even there.
So far in 2016, the OneUp Bash Guide has been on the winning bike for the first two EWS rounds and has more EWS stage wins than all other chain guides combined. We’re excited to see the Yeti Cycles and Rocky Mountain Bicycles Urge BP Rally Teams continue to rack up the wins as the season progresses.
“Light, strong and does its job. The Bash Guide has saved me a few times now and I don’t think I will go back.”
Jesse Melamed, Rocky Mountain Bicycles Urge BP Rally Team.

Not just for Trail and Enduro Bikes
The OneUp Bash Guide is equally at home on your downhill bike. With the popularity of clutch derailleurs, it is no longer necessary to run a chain guide with a lower roller to tension your chain. DH racers and Bike Park rippers will appreciate the reduction in drag with the elimination of the lower roller, without sacrificing strength or chain retention.

Moving across to Gamut, they had a fun bashring toss onto a cone for visitors to win prizes as well as a lot of their products on display.
One of the popular items they had on display was the Podium Pedal. Point One Racing and Gamut teamed up awhile back and the Podium you see here has seen some revisions. We’re fans of the Podium pedal and the updates they’ve done give it a nice refresh.
The bearing configuration and sizes were modified and now has a smaller bearing near the crankarm, improved durability with the axle modification ,and updated bearings that support it. They’re currently available with additional pin colors as well for customization.
Gamut has a range of stems and handlebars as well in their Clios range. The Clios stem is available in 40, 50mm, and 60mm size for All mountain and a direct mount option is available for downhillers. The Clios handlebar is 20mm or 30mm rise also available in a TR and 800mm DH model. The handlebar finish has a nice pop to them.
Chainguides and chainrings are what Gamut is best known for and they had both on display as well. The direct mount chainrings have been quite popular for them. The TTR rings works for 104BCD as well as Shimano M9000 (XTR) and Shimano M8000 (XT) and are available in 30-36t. The DM TTr rings work with direct mount interfaces with SRAM cranks. The TTR products are machined in Canada. The classic 104BCD Race Rings are available 32-40t.
You can check out the Gamut chainguides below in the picture. They’ve got options for upper and lower protections based on your needs and bike.
