The Disaster Guard concept was born in the Shadow Design Vault over a year ago. The design direction was to create a bash guard that could be applied universally to most sprockets. Since traditionally, bash guards were bolted to a specific sprocket, it was quite the challenge to design a way for the Disaster Guard to be applied to the bike without this limiting “Bolt-On” design feature.
We came up with assembly process of the Shadow Disaster Guard while figuring out a way to get better chain alignment on our bikes without changing how far our crank arms were spaced from our frames. Playing around in our 3D drawing program, we created a spacer that was the same shape as the Shadow Killer Crank spindle boss. This spacer fit between the sprocket and crank arm and was held on by the spindle and sprocket bolt. No extra bolts at all. This allowed us to remove the inner drive side bottom bracket cone and obtain a better chain alignment as well as correct crank arm spacing."
