The Shimano M960 XTR Crankset was unique. Its nine speed rings didn't share bolts so each ring had it's own BCD. Owning one of these beautiful cranksets is a great reason to hold off on upgrading to 10speed. But what do you do when your rings wear out? Blackspire has you covered.

Q: will this middle chainring work with the original xtr outer and inner???!@#%&? Thanks brother for your knowledge (another words i wanna replace my worn 'middle' xtr m960 chainring with a Blackspire superPro?)
A: I think you might be a little confused on what you have. Feel free to contact our customer service line with the model name of the cranks and we can gladly find you a ring.
The thick CNCed alloy of these rings is extremely durable, WAY better than the stock XTR rings that came with my M960 crankset. And shifting is flawless! Tip: when the outer ring gets worn on the bottom due to rock & tree bashing, turn all the rings 90 degrees to put the wear out of the power stroke.
