Available Now: The 28t AK Guard
The wait is over. The AK Guard is now available in a larger 28t option for those of you who like to haul ass, or just prefer the look and feel of a bigger sprocket on your steed. Using the same lab tested Nylon/Fibreglass material used in our legendary Venom Pegs and AK’s signature pedal, the new 28t AK guard is available both as the complete sprocket/guard combo, and as a replacement guard and bolt kit.
An idea that was spawned from his signature pedal; we wanted to take the robust nylon construction of the AK pedal and apply it to a full guard sprocket. The end result is a 8mm thick full CNC 6061-T6 Alloy sprocket with a fully replaceable 10mm thick Nylon-Fibreglass guard that is then bolted securely in to the sprocket via x4 small bolts.
One of the major design elements that has made the AK guard such a trustworthy and robust product, is the way that the Nylon guard is attached to the sprocket. Instead of sitting on the surface of the alloy sprocket, the Nylon guard is sunken INTO the structure of the sprocket and supported all the way around so that the bolt holes on the guard do not take all the impact.
The whole team has been loving the AK guard since we first released it last year, and couldn’t be more stoked that we now offer a 28t version. Pick up the AK Guard now worldwide this month from your local shop or mailorder in both 25t and 28t options with replaceable guards also sold separately.
