Please note that purchases on our Platform are covered by the manufacturers warranty.
Purchases on 3rd party platforms are NOT covered and there have been multiple cases of counterfeit products being sold to unassuming consumers. We have seen and tested these examples and can confirm that while these products may often look similar, they do not uphold the same quality and can lead to failure even under normal use.
At a mere 65 grams, the Lightworks 7075 Chain Tensioner is a popular upgrade amongst the Brompton weightweenie community. Like all Lightworks products these Chain Tensioners are designed around weight savings, aesthetics, functionality and durability.
For reference, a Stock Tensioner from Brompton is about 35% heavier than the Lightworks 7075 Chain Tensioner, making it a cost effective upgrade to save weight on the bike.

The Lightworks Tensioner comes with 2 DLC axles.
There are two versions, a default length, and a longer version which is designed for 6 speed external mods. While the longer version can be used on 2/3 speed external systems, there is a possibility that the longer axle might come into contact with the spokes of some wheels.
When the Brompton stock pulley wheels are installed, there is no need to use the pulley mud cap. This cap is used to keep mud off the stock axle which is weak and vulnerable to wear. Lightworks tensioner axles are DLC coated and extremely strong, rendering the pulley cap unnecessary. This also saves some additional weight.
