This is sure to make a lot of drive side peg grinders happy–another protection option that by the looks of it, should perform pretty well. Here’s what Shadow has to say about their new Universal Drive Side Hub Guard:

“Here it is, our our new Universal Drive Side hub guard. This hub guard includes a custom cone nut adapter that will replace the drive side cone nut on your current hub. After installing this cone nut, the hub guard body slides over the nut keeping you're rear driver, chain, & spokes safe from shred. This guard will work with our 14mm threaded axle Raptor cassette hub and most other 14mm threaded axle hubs on the market. Also included will be a set of small washers to help accommodate certain deep drivers. The Shadow Universal Drive Side hub guard will be available mid-summer 2012.”
