Rohloff Chain Tensioner XC and DH (8245, 8250)


Chain tensioner keeps chain from falling off sprockets when installing the SPEEDHUB 500/14 on full suspension frames or when retrofitting hub onto frames without a chain tensioning feature.

Dual-pulley configuration provides secure chain routing. Pulleys use sealed cartridge bearings for low friction and maintenance-free operation.

Spring loaded cage can accommodate chain growth on full suspension frame or changing of chainring size if a front derailleur is used (10T max ring difference).

Tensioner is fully rebuildable in the case of an accident.

XC version has longer mounting arm and pivots around mounting bolt to facilitate easy wheel removal.

XC version is included with SPEEDHUBs when packaged with a chain tensioner.

DH version has shorter mounting arm and locks in place when mounting bolt is tightened. This reduces the chances of the chain jumping off the rear sprocket in extremely rough conditions.
