Gamut has released a new version of the P30 chainguide, and at a claimed weight of 222 grams, the P30 is pretty impressive right out of the gate. In order to achieve this welterweight status, Gamut trimmed a lot of material from the polycarbonate bash ring, and the result is a 25% lighter piece which Gamut claims also provides greater protection. Gamut also played with the polycarbonate blend in order to achieve a better strength to weight ratio. We don’t doubt the weight reduction claim, but the large resulting holes in the bash ring make us think that this is a guide better suited to a DH race bike than your urban assault rig. Still, for all but the most abusive riders, this should offer all the protection you’ll need.
Like the model before it, the revised P30 is designed for 36t single-ring setups, and mounts up to your ISCG tabs. For you all-mountain riders, Gamut says that a dual-ring setup using the same lighter bash ring is in the works.
