PRESS RELEASE: Boise, Idaho based K-Edge Cycling Solutions, a division of AceCo Sport Group and Lincoln, Nebraska based Tomac Bikes have collaborated on what could be considered the most technically advanced chain suck frame protection ever developed. The K-Edge Anti-Chain Suck (ACS) was specifically designed for Tomacâ€™s (spoiler alert) soon to be introduced Supermatic 120 carbon fiber superbike.
â€œWhen I saw the clean design and CNC detailing on the K-Edge Chain Catcher,â€ says Tomac owner Joel Smith â€œI instantly contacted the guys at K-Edge to design something for our new Supermatic.â€
The ACS is CNC machined from aluminum billet and has two fully adjustable pucks that can be moved to fit a variety of chainring sizes. The ACS fits between the BB shell and the frame and is both compact and lightweight at 28 grams.
â€œTypically carbon fiber frames are protected by a small aluminum plate glued to the frame,â€œ says K-Edgeâ€™s Joe Savola. â€œWe took a whole other approach. We wanted to keep the chain from ever having the opportunity to reach the frame. The adjustable puck system provides both maximum protection and adjustability.â€
The K-Edge ACS is being built exclusively for Tomac and will come standard on the Supermatic 120. K-Edge Cycling Solutions has an aftermarket version in the works that is scheduled for release early next year.
