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:

    ADDED this ring and a 17t niner cog to my Niner SS (creating a 2:1 drivetrain) to make the bike a "DingleSpeed".
    Previously had a 32/19 (1.68:1) set up and added the chainring as well as the cog for another gearing option. I use the 2:1 gearing for gravel/commuting and the lower gearing for technical vertical trails.
    Recently hit some trails without having the opportunity to move the chain. The 2:1 (Raceface 34 and Niner cogalicious 17t) worked perfectly. Was riding with a top-ranked xc racer (nearly 30 years my junior) and managed to stay on his tail throughout without any technical issue. I have recommended Race Face since I bought a Bianchi BOSS with Turbine cranks in 1999 and will most likely continue to recommend them till I am pushing up daisies.

        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.

            The product description says "If running a 30T ring, you will need the Race Face Chainring Tab Shims." which I found to not be true using an 2010 XT crankset. Maybe something has changed with the newer ones, but the chainring fits and works great w/o them. You just need single-ring bolts, or bolts with thread that goes all the way up to the cap. I'm really impressed with my chain staying on over rough stuff with no chain guide, and I haven't even got my clutched derailleur yet!

              Switched a 2x10 set-up to 1x10...this is my front chainring. With only limited rides on the setup, I dig not having a front derailleur and all the parts that go with it, haven't found that I'm missing any gears, and have yet to drop the chain.

                simple symmetric machined ring. obvious that race face spent the extra time to make a superior product.

                Comments about Race Face Single Narrow Wide Chainring:

                Narrow wide chain rings really help the chain stick around with 1X setups.

                All my bikes are 1X and 2/3 use race face rings.

                Stylish and great function. Only draw back is ring wears quickly. I ride 100 plus miles a month and in 800/1000 miles its time for a new one.

                Keep in mind thats rock gardens with no bashguard and one bike is a single speed.
