Race Face Single Narrow/Wide 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!

Race Face also managed to develop a 30T front chainring for a 104 BCD. Geekery aside, this allows you to get a low enough climbing gear for pedaling an All-Mountain bike up the trail, without having to buy different cranks.

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 Single Narrow Wide Chainring Features

  • 104 BCD
  • Narrow Wide tooth profiling ensures ultimate chain retention
  • Stiff 4mm plate thickness and I-beam construction transfer loads without flexing
  • 7075-T6 aluminum, aerospace grade strength
  • Reversible laser etched graphics.
  • Compatible for 9, 10 and 11 speed.
  • 30T 104BCD NW single ring is threaded with a standard M8x0.75 chainring bolt thread, see the hardware chart for the appropriate bolt length required for your combination on Race Face's website by clicking HERE.
  • If running a 30T ring, you will need the Race Face Chainring Tab Shims (D40331) which you can purchase by clicking HERE.

One of my best upgrades ever! I went from 3x10 to 1x10. coupled with brand new 2013 Shimano XT cranks (that I won in a race), shimano XT shadow plus rear derailleur, XTR chain, 11-36T cassette and race face bash guard (I know that you don't need this one but I didn't like the look of a "naked" ring.
I get the 32T and is perfect for my type of riding/fitness level, amazingly quite and ZERO issues with chain.

        Comments about Race Face Single Narrow Wide Chainring:

        I was having problems with my chain slipping off of my front chain ring after my husband converted it from multiple front gears to a single gear. this Race Face chain ring holds the chain extremely well. I haven't had a single problem with it since he changed it out, and the red color really adds a nice customized look to my bike.

          Sharp looking and durable Chainring. Holds the chain even when banging the gears easier on a climb or harder on a flat section.

            No dropped chains yet! Looks cool and functions well. A little noise at both ends of the cassette(largest cog & smallest cog), but really quiet in the middle cogs. If your getting a chaining 32t or smaller, get the race face shims.

                used this for a successful 1x10 conversion, and it works great.

                looks great, lightweight, practical design and great value. i have a set of deore cranks on my other hard tail with a bent middle sprocket. im going to get another one to replace it.

                  This is the main peice of 1x9 conversion on my old Trek hardtail. 32 tooth front and 11-34 rear works great on the trails around my house. I dropped almost 1.5 pounds, and shortend my chain quite a bit, making shifting more crisp. Much less chain slap and the narrow/wide has a nice mechanical sound, kind of a low hum. Plus it looks so sweet. This was the best, cheapest mod I have done to my bike.

                    Super fast shipping, product came as described, installed in minutes and performed flawlessly. I was nervous with the size of jumps I was taking that I was going to toss a chain without a guide installed....that wasn't the case.

                    The only issue I had was the supplied Raceface sticker didn't match my bike, ha ha!
