The Party Crasher is MRP’s answer to the increased demand for polycarbonate bash guards. It has MRP markings around the sides of it in white and is a clear brownish color.

The Party Crasher comes in two sizes. The one in this review is the 35-40t model.

  • 34t
  • 35-40t

There are lots of benefits to running a polycarbonate bash guard over a metal one. Some benefits of polycarbonate bash rings include:

  • Fairly lightweight at 221g
  • The guard absorbs impacts and doesn’t bend or get jaggy from impacts.
  • Thicker (13mm) than conventional metal bash plates and can take hits very well.
  • Scrub across rocks and obstacles instead of getting hung up on them.
  • Polycarbonate is strong and doesn’t deform, which means you can finish your race or ride.

There are a few notable issues with using polycarbonate bash guards.

  • Not as light as some metal bashguards.
  • Care in installation to not over torque and crack the guide.
  • Using mineral based cleaners/lubes can dry out the polycarbonate and make it crack.

The Party Crasher itself weighs in at 221g and according to MRP will cover a 35-40t chainring. However, it will only cover up to a 38t properly.

The Party casher has an MSRP price of $39.00 USD.

Look up Chad at Red Barn Bicycles if you’re looking for a great price.

Conclusion

The Party Crasher is a good investment if you’re interested in keeping your drivetrain protected and running during a race run. It keeps your drivetrain safe and it won’t deform or bend like metal guides. The polycarbonate slides over rocks and obstacles instead of getting hung up on them. Worth while investment? Definitely.
