Mountain bike website Factory Jackson check out E*Thirteen's LG1+ chain device and E*Thirteen's Guide ring. Here's what they had to say:

The LG1+ chainguide is claimed by e*thirteen to be the most reliable, most adjustable, strongest and lightest chainguide on the market. That's a strong slogan to put onto your product and in such a competitive market, is one that would need some serious back up. Having run the LG1+ for a while now and on a variety of trails and on two bikes, I have found it faultless in every way and most definitely what I like to call, a 'fit and forget' product.

The LG1+ is very light for a guide complete with taco and as far as I can see, your not going to loose your chain either, so it ticks the reliable box too. If you've read the full review below you know this thing is very adjustable too, so that just leaves strength and so far it's had a few scrapes and bangs and so far so good, but only time and throwing myself into the line of danger will perhaps indicate where the LG1+ might fail.

Overall I have been more than impressed with the LG1+ and I'm sure it will be hard to find another guide that meets or even exceeds this on any one of the guides key features. It really does seem that the LG1+ is pretty much perfect and if your looking for a new guide, I'd more than recommend it. At ?130 it isn't the cheapest guide available, but considering what this guide offers, I really believe this is excellent value for money. The LG1+ is available in white and black and in two sizes to accommodate ring sizes from 32-36T (tested) and 36-40T in both the iold' and '05' ISCG patterns. The Guide Ring is also on the money at £35 for 32-35T and £40 for 36-40T and is available in 'PG Green', 'Delta Gold', 'Rocket Red', 'Drink Grape', 'Jet Black', 'Silver Bullet' and 'Blue Steel'.
