  • Chain Tensioner
    Keep your chain under tension.


    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. There are various different versions of our Chain Tensioner available, ensuring we have one here to suit any of the vastly different frame designs currently in use.

    The Standard Chain Tensioner (Art.#8250) is compatible with 135, 142, 170 & 177mm frames equipped with a standard derailleur hanger.

    Fatbikes frames with a 190mm/197mm spacing, alternative gear hubs (non-SPEEDHUB) and singlespeed bicycles will all require the Chain Tensioner -10 (Art.#8250-10).

    Downhill cyclists and extreme offroad athletes using frames equipped with a standard derailleur hanger should choose the DH Chain Tensioner (Art.#8245).

    The Rohloff Chain tensioner is easy to install, it simply mounts to the existing derailleur hanger of the frame. Spacers are used for lateral adjustability. For the quick wheel removal the Rohloff Chain tensioner swings back when pulling the wheel out of the dropouts. The Rohloff Chain tensioner has a tensioning capacity of 10 chain links which is sufficiant even for long travel rear suspensions.

    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.
