    It really depends on what kind of riding you will be doing, gearing set up and if you want bash protection or not.
    The LG1+ has integrated bash protection and the TRS+ is a guide only application for 1X gearing.

    I would be tempted to run one of the new TRS+ dual ring systems on this bike. They will come in a direct mount bash version similar to the LG1+, and also in a turbocharger version(no direct mount bash) which you will be able to run with or without the turbocharger.

    You right I forgot to specify, I am looking to ride this mainly for Enduro races. Yesterday I installed a TRS+ with 36T saint chainring but still thinking I need a mount bashguard?

    Just looking at the weight difference between the LG1+ and the TRS+, being about 51g.. if this is primarily a race bike I would say you have the right system.
    A LG1+ would make more sense for DH race or AM riding.

    I have the TRS+ on my SB66 and don't see the need for a bash. I just wanted a guide for chain retention.

    I run a LG1+ on my SB works great.
