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.

    Have used this chainring all summer and have yet to loose a chain. My last chainring would pop a chain off once a week.

      Comments about Race Face Single Narrow Wide Chainring:

      I got this to replace the three stock chainrings on my Specialized Hardrock. The conversion to one chainring is cool, and the Race Face Single Narrow chainring is a great choice. I got it in orange and it works and looks great. It even sounds good...it's quiet, but there is a soft mechanical purring that I really like. I got a seat tube mounted chain guide just for added protection against chain drops. I highly recommend this product, and the 1x conversion.

        These are awesome! Must have for a 1x10 setup. I have been running these for a year now and with the addition of a type 2 clutched derailer I have never dropped a chain even in the nastiest root and rock gardens.

                  I switched from a 3x9 22t/32t/41t 11-32 to a 1x10 30t 11-36. Top speed on trails with the 30x11 ratio ends up being around 25mph. There is no hill I cannot climb on a 30x11. Unless you race regularly (ie. every weekend) and need more speed on downhills I would not recommend anything larger than 30t in front. I have shadow XTR with clutch in the rear, with the Wide Narrow in front I have not dropped a chain ever.

                    It's a single chainring. Not much to say except that it holds onto the chain, and when paired with a clutch derailleur, makes your chain virtually undroppable.
