K-EDGE Cycling Solutions brand was born from one simple product, Kristin Armstrong’s Chain Catcher - later to be called K-EDGE Chain Catcher. The K-EDGE Chain Catcher is a purposeful design engineered with a single goal: help Kristin Armstrong win the Gold at the 2008 Olympic Games. K-EDGE was the first company to come up with this idea, and they hold the design patent for it.
K-EDGE is perfect for anyone who likes to keep their chain in place in all situations, and protect their frame from damage caused by a derailed chain.
K-EDGE debuted in the Pro Tour peloton in 2009 and has been used extensively since including the 2012 Paris-Roubaix and last year was used by several teams in the 2011 Tour de France.
In a short period of time K-EDGE have expanded their product offering to include components for road, mountain, and cyclo-cross. While their focus has been on providing intelligent solutions for the elite level of our sport, the same solutions used by pro riders are available to cyclists of all abilities.
Westbrook Cycles are delighted to add K-EDGE to our portfolio. The chain catcher is a great insurance policy for any road bike, and the GoPro mounts complement our GoPro lines perfectly.
