Efficient cycling requires a well tensioned chain. A Rohloff Chain Tensioner is necessary for all full-suspension bikes and hardtails where one can’t move the cranks or wheel.

Keep your chain under tension: the Chain Tensioner from Rohloff

The Rohloff chain tensioner is a spring loaded device that maintains chain tension in a single driveline application. It should be used with the Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14 when horizontal adjustment of the hub is unattainable or in rear suspension applications where the distance between the bottom bracket and the rear axle change throughout the range of travel. The Rohloff chain tensioner is an excellent choice for any conversion to a single driveline system (i.e. SPEEDHUB 500/14 or singlespeed).

On dropouts thinner than 7mm, the use of the 13 tooth sprocket and all splined sprockets (chainline 58mm) will require the use of the longer mounting bolt. This is available separately.
