Hope Retainer Narrow Wide Chainring

Hope Retainer Narrow Wide Chainring

The new Retainer Ring by Hope Technologies is designed to eliminate the need of a chainguide while running a 1x drivetrain. This is accomplished by using the ingenious narrow/wide tooth profile. In other words, the alternating narrow/wide (or fat/skinny) teeth fit more directly into the narrow and wide spacing of a normal chain, “grabbing” the chain and holding it more firmly, even without the assistance of a clutch derailleur. The CNC machined 7075-T6 aluminum Retainer Ring not only holds perfect balance between lightweight and strength, but it completely obsoletes a front derailleur, eliminating irritating chain rub and drag. The hard anodized finishing make these insanely durable, keeping you turning over your 1x for years to come. The Retainer Ring is compatible with 9, 10, and 11 speed set ups.

  • Available in Black, Silver or Gold.
  • Available as a 30t,32t, 34t and 36t Chainring size
  • 104 BCD 4 bolt pattern
  • No need to run chain device
  • Designed to work with conventional 9, 10 or 11spd set ups
  • Weight from 41g

functional simplicity
I wanted to simplify my drivetrain, by going from 3x9 to a 1x9. The results with this ring are great. No longer do i have to listen to chain rub on front derailleur, everything is silent, i shed weight by deleting parts and am able to utilize every rear cog. The hope ring seems very well machined and thought out. I got the 32 ring, it was easy to install and set up. My only concern is wear
the ring is aluminum and not steel, but it is hard anodized and you will not be shifting between front rings. Time will tell how it wears, but lets be honest, it is easy to replace, relatively inexpensive, and best of all it just works!

Great Product
I purchased the Hope narrow wide ring because I had worn out my other single ring and needed a smaller chain ring. I looked at many of the rings on the market and found that the Hope has the thickest wide teeth with in reason. There are other rings out there that have thicker wide teeth but would cause unnecessary drag on the drive train.

I really like this ring, if you are looking to buy once, this is your ring.

Does what it says
I've gotten about a dozen rides in since installing. Rides are typically in very rutted, rooty, rocky terrain, drops, jumps - not a single dropped chain. I saved 7 oz by being able to remove the chain guide and the bike looks much cleaner and rides quieter. Very happy with it.

No dropped chains
So far I have had zero dropped chains with this ring. I'm not sure how they did it but it seems to work without any retention devices. I would recommend this for sure. Hope makes good stuff!

Kyle T on Mar 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I believe it's compatable. Got mine for sram bb30 cranks. But for precise shifting spacer and (or)longer bolts might be required.
Do i need specific sized hardware to install? I knwo the race face one recommends Tab shims. I am currently going from 2x down to 1x

Thanks
