A simple precision-made component that provides valuable insurance against front derailleur malfunctions with the Pro model being easier to fit and allows for independent adjustment of the front mech and chain catcher.
About Front Derailleurs
Various derailleur systems were designed and built as far back as the late 1800s. A French bicycle tourist, writer and cycling promoter Paul De Vivie (1853-1930), invented a two speed rear derailleur in 1905 which he used on forays into the Alps, and we wonder if 20 gears are enough. Since then there has been many advancements in the number of gears, materials and reductions in weight. Wiggle lists a large selection of front and rear derailleurs catering for double and triple systems with 7, 8, 9, 10 and even 11 speed cassettes.
About the K-Edge brand
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 that was engineered for a single goal: help Kristin Armstrong win the Gold at the 2008 Olympic Games. While we wouldn’t be so arrogant to suggest the K-Edge was the reason Kristin took gold, it’s a common sense design that provides functional and mental advantages for high performance cyclists. The K-Edge is also perfect for anyone who likes to keep their chain in place, improve shifting performance, and protect their frame from damage caused by a derailed chain.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
My di2 hasn't thrown the chain yet.
I got this chain catcher for my other bike with ultegra which had problems (due to the bike shop installing a too long chain)
If it does not fit,can you recommend what style I need and recommend and example please
This determines which type of chain catcher you might use.
The clamp type has a ring which wraps around the seat tube of your bike frame and does NOT mount on a bracket that is factory installed into/onto the frame. The images below show the difference in the mount style and you can see the ring in the second image that wraps around the frame rather than screwing to a bracket.

WHAT YOU CAN USE
Here are some options, I have also used the Dog Fang and despite being quite cheap it does the job pretty well.
You will need to know the diameter of the seat tube at the point where the chain catcher clamp will be located. Ideally the tube will not get too wide underneath the front derailleur clamp too.
I cannot tell for sure but the seat tube does look pretty consistent in diameter immediately after the clamp on your bike from images I have seen.
Anyway, items you could use.....

Great stuff, Wiggle, my K-Edge Pro Road Braze-On Double Chain Catcher is superb on my Dura Ace Di2 Supersix Evo.
With the standard version, your one front mech bolt holds both the mech and the chain catcher, so you need to get two rather different things aligned and set up. Its a bit of a faff doing it this way, so the pro is much easier and gives better perfomance as each part is set up independantly !
