The V2 of our legendary 77designz CRASH PLATE is milled from extremely tough 7075 T6 aluminum. It protects your chainring (round or oval) from impact damage (For Oval, get 2 Teeth bigger). We offer 4 sizes and seven colors for minimal overlap and max style. Compared to the V1, we have optimized the contact orientation; the new slotted hole means the Taco now also fits Santa Cruz carbon frames. Disassembling the crank is unnecessary to install the Crash Plate, which means assembly is effortless and quick. The minimal overlap of the Taco Bashguard offers the best protection for your chainring while maintaining maximal ground clearance. The Crash Plate can be combined with our ISCG 05 chain guides - all you need is the connector.

The Crash Plate does not fit all Santa Cruz Carbon Frames as their ISCG 05 has too large tolerances. It is best to measure before ordering; the center to center distance should be 55.9 +/- 2 mm. The bash guard is 5 mm thick, and the screws are flush. The screws we use are hollow drilled so that they can shear off in case of an overload. These bolts prevent damage to the frame.

Most of the bike frames nowadays are designed to carry the load introduced by a Taco Bashguard or Crash Plate; regardless, you should still consult your frame manufacturer about whether your frame is approved for our crash plate.
