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.

Best upgrade I have ever done! This product allowed me to reduce the weight by over 1 pound by eliminating LX cranks, derailleur and shifter. I installed it without a guide or a clutch derailleur and has worked flawlessly. It's also quiet and have reduced chain slaps. Finally, it also adds bling to the bike since it is available in many colors.

      Very reliable, if you used it for trail and fun riding you probably won't get a chain drop, i've been using mine for a year with a very aggressive riding and had like 20 drops. If you compete is better to buy a chainguide

        I bought this chain ring when converting to a 1x set up and couldn't be happier with it. I ride pretty hard and still can't seem to beat it up. Great chainring for the money and comes in whatever color you could want which is a plus

                Comments about Race Face Single Narrow Wide Chainring:

                Very nice N/W chainring. I used this to convert my bike to a 1x 10 (11-40 cassette), and got a 32 tooth. It's really lightweight, looks sheek in the blue color and has amazing chain retention. My bike is unbelievably quiet now that I made this conversion. I'm in shape now, pushing a 32-40 on the climbs works, but its not super ideal- especially for longer rides. The 32 is probably a great pairing with a 11-42 cassette but for anything less I'd recommend a 30 tooth.

                    switched from a 2x to a 1x with this ring. weight savings alone was worth it. smoother than the stock shimano slx rings that came on my bike. even using a long cage rear der I have zero issues with dropping the chain.
                    excellent product.

                        I upgraded or down graded from a 2X to a 1X and went with Raceface narrow wide. Looks great and works as well as it looks. Light but durable construction. Holds the chain very well. Very little noise in low gear, hardly noticeable.

                            Hey Eric great question! The Race Face chain ring is build for a multi speed chain that is much smaller than 1/8", You could use this but you may not have the best performance I would recommend a different chain, or chain ring for your set up.
