Race Face 3 Bolt Direct Mount Chainring

Race Face SRAM Direct Mount Chainring

These chainrings are a game changer for single-ring drivetrains! These Race Face Single rings now feature performance-enhancing chain retention technology, allowing them (for most riders) to be used without a chainguide! The secret are 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... even without the use of a clutched derailleur!

These particular chainrings are made for SRAM cranksets that use a removable spider, such as the X0 and X1. By nature of the Direct Mount design, Race Face was able to offer smallers chainrings such as the 26T, 28T and 30T options. Geekery aside, this allows you to get a low enough climbing gear for pedaling an All-Mountain bike up the trail, without having to worry about BCD.

The Narrow/Wide Single Rings are strong enough to stand up to the abuse of the downhill trail, yet light enough for cross country racers. Single Rings are machined from 7075 aluminum and tested in the most punishing terrain. They’re built to last!

Race Face SRAM Direct Mount Chainring Features

  • Technology: Narrow Wide tooth profiling ensures ultimate chain retention and utilizes SRAM direct mount spline design.
  • Crank Compatibility: SRAM cranks-XX1, XO1, XO, X9, X7, S2210, S1400, and Truvativ AKA (GXP)
  • Construction: 7075-T6 aluminum, aerospace grade strength with stiff 4mm plate thickness to transfer loads without flexing.
  • Cassette Compatibility: for 9, 10 and 11 speed.
  • Weight: 38g (26t) ranging up to 76g (36T)

No chain drops, even with no clutch
I replaced my MRP Bling Ring and MRP 1x Chainguide with this chainring. The chainguide setup would occasionally jam up if I backpedaled in the bumpy stuff.

Bolts right up to my X9 GXP crankset.

NO CHAIN DROPS, even with my no-clutch SRAM X-9 short cage 9-speed derailleur.

Hardtail 26er, 36T driving a 9-speed 11-34 cassette.

Much better than Wolf Tooth
I had the wolf tooth version of this chain ring, it would drop almost every ride. After hundreds of miles, this chain ring has not dropped yet.

PROS: Reliable, Easy To Install, Lightweight

Excellent for 1x10 with XX1 cranks
I use the 32T with XX1 crankset (yes, it's an 11 speed crank but it works for any 1x system), X9 type 2 sram 10speed derailleur medium cage, x0 twister shifter, OneUp 42T cog with 16t adapter, and KMC 10speed chain. Never drop a chain.

Structural failure
Relatively cheap, lightweight and failed massively shearing off at spline interface after 6 months of moderate to heavy use. Wearing out is one thing but structural failure suggest poor engineering or poor quality control.

Good Product
Very good quality. Great chain retention, basically no chain drop.

Not the same Offset as SRAM GPX X-Sync chainring. Need to adjust chainline.

Complete Failure
I have now purchased two of these. Each one lasted maybe a season of moderate use. The first one the outer ring snapped at all 5 arms from the mount while trying to pedal uphill in a low gear. I assumed this a fluke but second one has now bent so that chain slips off when under load.

Can I use this chainring as a direct replacement for a SRAM XX1 chainring?
Marc on May 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It should work flawlessly provided that your crankset is SRAM direct-mount compatible.
Hi
I'm looking at replacing my 32 tooth front chain ring from;
https://www.canyon.com/en-au/mtb/strive/2016/strive-cf-8-0-race.html

It has a 34T Raceface, with Raceface Turbine cranks & Sram x01 groupset.

I'm after the same model, but a 32T or 30T preferably in blue or black.

Thanks very much

Matt

BEST ANSWER: You'll want the Cinch version of this chainring. SRAM uses a different interface than Race Face for their direct mount chainrings, and this chainring is compatible only with SRAM direct-mount cranks.
