Race Face Turbine 10 SPD Chainring Set
After two years of engineering work and rigorous testing, the all new Turbine rings are ready to ride. Completely redesigned from the ground up, these rings shift like nothing else. As with previous chainrings, the Turbine rings are made in Canada from 7075 aluminum, so they are built to last.
- Asymmetrical tooth profiling
- Multiple up and down shift zones
- Instantaneous smooth and quiet shifting, even under load
- Three times stiffer than previous versions, without any weight gain
- Machined in Canada with US made aluminum
- Designed for 10 speed mtb drivetrains

I got the double 36/24T. The rings are high quality and also look good. They come with 4 sets of bolt, nut, spacer. The adaptors install in the place where bash guard or the big/outer chainring will go on a triple. The rings are very light and have extensive machined profiles to help with shifting. Both are high strength 7075 aluminum. The bolts/nuts/spacers are aluminum, black.
I got these rings to convert my 2014 DiamondBack Mason Comp to 2x10 for better climbing, trying to make the bike the one quiver bike.
The Mason and Mason Comp both come with Race Face Ride cranks and Race Face's RACE XT X-Type bottom bracket but with a Race Face single Narrow/Wide chainring - an All Mountain 1x10 setup. The BB shell on the bike is 73mm (72.6 measured on the bike). The bike accepts a D-type (braze-on) or an E-type front derailleur. I only tried the braze-on/direct mount type a Shimano SLX FD-M676-D.
Race Face does say that the cranks are 2 or 3 speed compatible. The chanirings are obviously to be installed on the middle and inner position (64/104BCD) on the crank's spider. BTW these cranks unlike the Respond do not need a granny spider (it is built in non detachable).
These chainrings do not work on my bike. With the above parts the chainline is 2 - 2.5 mm too small making the chain rub on the inner derailleur cage. There is one 2.5mm spacer used in the driver side in this configuration (73mm). Adding one more spacer is not possible (I've tried) as the spindle is too short to accommodate it (you cannot turn the pedals).
I went out and shelled $160 for a Shimano SLX FC-M675 crankset - the thing that I was trying to avoid by getting these rings. The SLX works just fine. They are double in price compared to the Ride cranks but that is beyond the point here, the Race Face should have worked to. The clear advantage on the Shimano is that the crank is fixed to the spindle in the driver side while the Race Face is using an octalink couple in the driver side creating opportunity for the fabrication variations to mess the chainline.
BTW As weight goes the SLX are only 20g lighter compared to the Ride + Turbine rings (measured including BB, spacers, etc.). People report that the Ride cranks are not as stiff but I have little to no time riding on these to tell. In my book the above diffs do not justify going with SLX at more than double the price. But they do fit my bike.
