Burly enough for DH Racers and Dirt Jumpers, yet light enough for XC/singlespeed. The Race Face single rings now feature performance enhancing chain retention technology. Machined from 7075 aluminum and tested on some of the most punishing terrain in the known universe.
Bike mechanics agree about chain replacement. If your chainring is replaced, 60% of the time your chain needs to be replaced every time. 60% of you probably didn't get the Anchorman reference. That shouldn't keep you from getting a new chain. Take a look at our ginormous selection of chains here.
I put this on my GT Karakoram. It is a nine speed. At first I was worried about chain drops, but in the months I've been riding with it I've only had one. Other that that, this chain ring is great. Easy to install and comes in many colours to choose from.
I switched to this after installing a chainguide that was far to overkill for the type of riding I do. I paired this with a Shimano Deore clutch style rear derailleur and have yet to drop a chain...and i haven't even turned the extra stiff setting on, on the derailleur! Highly recommended.
I have this ring on three different bikes with a shimano clutch derailleur and they give you absolute peace of mind that you won't drop a chain. Regardless of how rough the terrain.
I got the 30T for my 1 x 9 setup and loved it. Good fit and finish. Looks great.
I threw one of these on the middle ring position of my Santa Cruz's 3x setup. I got rid of the granny ring and replaced the big ring with a raceface bashguard. This narrow-wide chain ring in combination with the clutch bearing rear dérailleur has made for a worry free 1x setup. Haven't dropped the chain yet!
Best move I made was going to a single ring up front and you can't go wrong with this Race Face N/W ring. I have been running the 32 for a year now and have no issues what so ever. Wear isn't much at all and I have not dropped the chain once! Also having one up front simplies riding so much! I don't have to think about shifting near as much and can focus more on the trail. Would definitely recommond this to anyone looking at getting into 1X
Went 1x10 last year and love it. This chainring helped to make it possible
Can't say enough about how impressed I am with this chainring. Bought the 32t version to convert my rigid 29er SS to 1x9, using a Shimano SLX derailleur. I've ridden many miles since the conversion, including lots of rocky and technical single track without a single chain drop. No need for any other chain retention device. Just make sure you get the chain length correct and you'll be good to go!
I first started off w this and made my 1x9 Specialized Rockhopper into a pretty good trail machine. I loved not shifting gears and NEVER had a chain drop and chain suck was non-existent. Upgraded to a FSR 29er Comp w the 2x10 and immediately took this chainring off the Rockhopper and put it on my new sled. I do not have a clutched rear d and took the chain hanger/tentioner off of the chain stay. I have put over 1000 miles on my this bike w no issues. I just ordered a 32t from the original RF 34t just to make my climbing life a little easier and not because of poor performance.
Used the 32T to go to a 1x10 setup, first ride went great without a guide and no dropped chains. Second ride I went to a more technical trail and dropped the chain twice in the first 20 minutes. I would recommend this, but only with a guide/clutch/tensioner, especially as the rings start to wear down from use on technical trails.
I bought this chain ring so I could go 1 x 9 on the cheap. I use a regular 9 speed rear derailleur no need for a type 2 or clutch. I haven't dropped the chain yet after 50 rides. I will never use a FD again. Race Face made going 1X really affordable.Definitely recommend it. Worth the 5 star rating.
Just like everybody else says its perfect. Perfect for going 1x9 or 1x10. I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO A FD AGAIN. Just buy it you will not be sorry.
Changed my 2x to a 1x. I'm running a 30t up front and a 11-34 in the rear.No chain guide and no clutched rear derailleur,haven't dropped the chain.The chain sticks even through VERY rough rock and root terrain. I hear the chain bouncing but never comes off. Those guys at Race Face are genius'.
I used this chain ring to convert a 2x10 to a 1x10 setup. I removed both front rings and the derailleur. I did not put a front chain stay on with this ring because on the RaceFace website they said they ran this ring during testing with no chain stay and didn't drop the chain. I jump off of everything I can and love hitting drop offs. After at least 30 hours of hard riding I haven't dropped the chain once. It's amazing how well this ring holds the chain. Two thumbs up!
I picked this up to change my 2x10 drive train over to a 1x10. It has performed flawlessly. I have yet to drop a chain and how can you complain about the color options!
I'm the weirdo who has been running a 1X drivetrain for the past 17 years but I've always had to use my front derailleur as a chain guide with the help of an extra long screw to adjust the derailleur to stay in the middle ring position. I've also hated the look of my cable-less front derailleur just sitting there on my bike not doing much of anything. When I saw these chainrings I had to try them out, but I was super skeptical. How can simply making the teeth narrow & wide keep my chain on, right? Well, it does. And it does it very, very well. I'm currently running this chainring on a Yeti SB66 and I love it. This is a piece of technology that could have been invented decades ago but I guess it was so simple that no one thought of it. If you're a 9-speed or 10-speed rider looking to lighten your bike while also cleaning up its looks, pull the trigger on this chain ring! I've been totally happy with this purchase. I ride super rocky trails that would throw my chain even when I had a derailleur on it. But with this chainring I've only had two chain slips in nearly a year of riding. Get it. Put it in your cart, pull the trigger and DITCH THAT DERAILLEUR!!
I got this and installed on my Niner mcr9 works KILLER no chain drop at all 5 stars
Simple, effective, and light. What else you need?
Excellent chainring. I haven' t had a single dropped chain since switching to it.
No more chain guides for me and no lost chains. And they make it affordable. What more could you want?
Love Love Love this chainring! I'm running a 32T narrow/wide with a X9 type 2 rear derailleur. I just put my bike together 2 days before an endurance race, without testing my new drive train (upgraded from X7 2x10 to X9 type 2 1x10 with this chain ring) and the bike was flawless, quiet, never missed a shift, never dropped a chain. My bike far out performed my abilities! I love the simplicity of the 1x10 and the 32T with the X9 type 2 rear derailleur is about as perfect and simple of a drivetrain you could have!
just put one of these on. was running a chain guide on my 1X9 setup. the narrow/wide is the way to go, haven't dropped the chain yet! looks great easy to install.
I installed this with a single chain ring/chain ring bolts with no fuss. The narrow wide technology is the real deal. I immediately the next day went riding on some gnarly terrain with no problems. I now have a lighter bike, more efficient drivetrain and rotating weight reduction allows me to reach the top of the mountain with more energy. My box arrived from pricepoint very quick and with no fuss. I will be making more purchases very soon. I'm sold on the product and pricepoint!!!
Pick the right teeth number, bolt on, and go. Works great, plus the bang for the buck Race Face is known for. Running a 32 tooth on my 29er hard tail. Just enough to lug up hill without spinning out downhill. One of the new products that is worthy of the hype. POW
Bought this to convert my Prophet to 1x9. I expected that I'd need a guide or tensioner, but decided to try just the ring. I've ridden a lot of rough stuff, and only lost the chain once. I'm impressed and have no plans to add a guide or tensioner...this ring alone retains the chain good enough.
If you are running a 1 by setup get this ring now! I have yet to drop a chain! I'm now running it without a bashguard, non clutch SLX derailleur and a stinger....works beautifully. I removed all the other chain management stuff and lighted my bike up a bit too.
I've put 300 miles on a 32 tooth ring and so far so good. Only 2 dropped chains and I run it without any guide on some very chunky trails. It was a little noisy the first 20 miles of use, but has quieted down since. Very impressed with this chainring.
I've been running one of these on my AM HT 1X10 setup for about 6 months. I dirt jump this bike, hammer downhills, rock gardens, studder bumps and have not had a single derailment running NO front Guide! Ridden in the mud with no issue as well. Light, strong and works!
Got the 30 tooth N/W ring for my 1x10 set up and couldn't be happier. I chose not to run it with a bash guard or chain guide and so far haven't had any dropped chains.
I bought this chain ring so I could go 1 x 9 on the cheap. I use a regular 9 speed rear derailleur (type 2 or clutch type not necessary ) 9 speed cassette and a 10 speed chain. I haven't dropped the chain yet after 20 rides. This chain ring has worked just as well as the ones that cost 80 bucks. Definitely recommend it
Thank you Sram for inventing the narrow/wide teeth. And more thanks for Race Face for making it affordable to us!
Very happy with my green 34 tooth ring so far. No worries about front derailleur rubbing when the chain is on an extreme cog on the cassette. My chain has not slipped off the ring yet, despite having an old long arm nine speed rear derailleur.
I purchased a new bike, that did not have ISCG mounts... instead I have learned about PressFit BB. I have always ran a single ring & chain guide system. In FL there are lots of drops & roots that can pop a chain easily, and I have to admit I was VERY hesitant about running just a single ring with no guide. I have logged over 20hrs now... I have NEVER dropped my chain. I have even TRIED to make the chain drop, no issues. RaceFace has made me a believer in the Narrow/Wide and I will do it again on my next bike. I love not having the extra weight or cost of a chain guide system.. clean looks, lots of colour options... take a leap of faith and try it
No dropped chains paired with an xt clutch derail. Looks great, light weight. Love it.
Put this on new crankset - race face turbine for a 1X9 and it looks beautiful - using this chain ring i was able to remove chain guide and have no dropped chains
This product (Wolftooth 42T GC Cog for Shimano), in conjunction w\the 32 tooth Race Face wide\narrow front chainring has completely changed the way I ride. I am now able to utilize what used to be my middle ring on every facet of my trail rides. I already feel stronger. Shifts beautifully, looks factory, easy install! Haven't dropped a chain yet!
30 tooth ring has been a great addition to my bike. I have only dropped the chain once in about 400 miles of riding.
Quite simply put the is the single most helpful part i have ever bought. The WNW design has never jumped the chain, ever. I have put this to the test, no tensioner no guides. I will buy this product every time. This is the product that sold me on all raceface product. I am a believer and you will be too. I bought the black it goes with everything.
This is such an awesome chainring. Zero dropped chains so far, and the graphics on it are pretty sick too.
Does exactly what it says. I use it with a 10 spd Shimano XT rear cassette and XT shadow plus deraillaeur. The combination of this ring with the clutch mech has resulted in zero chain drops. In fact, I never dropped a chain with this ring before I had the clutch mech. It probably causes more rapid chain wear due to the increased forces while cross-chaining, but gets the job done. Like all Race Face products, it looks cool too.
Light and no dropped chains yet! haven't had it long enough to say anything about durability. TIP: Read the fine print! The 30 tooth chainring needs a male chainring bolt with at least 10mm of thread! I missed this at first and had to wait a couple days until I could get new bolts to install it.
