So first here's a disclaimer- I'm not actually using this on a bicycle. I'm making a piece of machinery that required a hand-cranked chain driven mechanism so I bought 4 of these chainrings to use with an old 9-speed chain I had. For this application these are perfect, as I needed a nice compact ring that would be cost effective and I know would last. Shimano is a tried and tested name in the MTB world and I trust their products to perform however they are used, so I'd highly recommend these rings.
I should mention that the image doesn't look like an SLX chainring. An SLX ring has a plastic molding around the inner diameter. This plastic material surrounding the bolt holes isn't concave where it interfaces with the crank, its convex. This means that it won't fit on an XT crank. I wasn't aware of this when I purchased my SLX chainring. I was bummed because I was off on a mt bike trip in a couple of days and needed it right away... So.... I discovered that if you carefully remove the plastic with a dremel tool, the underlying metal is still shaped like an XT so it will then fit. I've got hundreds of miles on my SLX/XT combo with no issues. Not recommending that you buy this and modify it, but if you buy it looking at the photo, thinking it will fit your XT cranks, be aware that it won't fit unless you get all McGyver on it.
