Oneup Components XT/SLX 96 BCD Oval Ring

OneUp XT M8000/SLX M7000 96 BCD Oval Chainring

Narrow-wide chainrings are a game changer for single-ring drivetrains. Featuring built-in chain retention technology, the OneUp Narrow Wide Chainring allows you to run a 1x drivetrain without using a chainguide! The trick is the tooth profile consisting of alternating fat/skinny teeth to fit more closely into the narrow and wide plate spacing of a normal chain, "grabbing" the chain and holding it more securely.

The OneUp XT NW Rings are specifically made to work with the asymmetrical 96 BCD used on the Shimano XT M8000 and SLX M7000 11-speed cranksets. The same quality and performance benefits of OneUp Components is now available to your XT M8000 and SLX M7000 equipped bike.

This model of the OneUp chainring features a 12% ovality with a 115 degree clocking from the crank arm to put the major axis of the oval in your power stroke. This efficiently utilizes the strongest muscle groups to increase positive work, while picking up the slack in the weaker zones to reduce the negative work, smoothening out the rotation to a perfect spin.

Strong, holds chain well, and, most importantly, it climbs better than a round ring. Makes a noticeable difference.

Oval is legit, and OneUp is excellent as always

By Ryderjin

Comments about Oneup Components XT/SLX 96 BCD Oval Ring:

I had no trouble setting up the oval chainring. Runs without hitch in my Shimano 1x10 setup. (The previous review that show the picture of the chain not engaging... is unexplainable to me, assuming everything was set up correctly.) OneUp machining is excellent, and I have not had any dropped chains either.

First time trying an Oval chainring... I am a seated climber who loves to take on steep, long climbs. So smoother my power transfer the better... and I definitely notice smoother, more consistent power with the oval chainring. Feels better on my knees as well.

Is it enough to upgrade? Well, I would recommend the oval for sure if you are already looking to buy a chainring.

Comments about Oneup Components XT/SLX 96 BCD Oval Ring:

not sure, quality seems good, description was not clear that mount was asymmetrical for XT cranks, and would not fit symmetrical crank. Saving until I upgrade my crank.

      Comments about Oneup Components XT/SLX 96 BCD Oval Ring:

      This chainring fits perfectly on my XT M8000 2x Cranks. The included spacers are nice for moving the chainring more towards the frame, and getting a more proper chainline.

      I didn't have any issues getting a Shimano HG 700 11 speed chain to mount on this chainring, and was able to ride about 15 trail miles on it so far with zero issues in terms of the chain fitting, and I had no issues with the rear derailleur shifting, or the chain coming off of the front ring. Since this is a narrow wide chainring, you have to ensure that the inner and outer plates are mounted properly on the narrow or wide teeth, otherwise the chain won't go on the ring properly.

      This is my first oval chainring, and to be honest I haven't noticed a huge difference from a normal circular chainring. I think I may have gotten a slight increase in pedaling power when I was grinding uphills, but it didn't feel much different than a normal circular chainring, which I suppose is a positive. Overall a great job from OneUp on this chainring!

      Poor machining. Chain doesn't seat and just rolls off.

      Comments about Oneup Components XT/SLX 96 BCD Oval Ring:

      Love oval chainrings and I've used One Up before. This one however sucks. The wide teeth are machined too wide and the chain doesn't properly seat. The result is a chain that either rolls off the chainring or binds and doesn't release.
