Strengths:    Inexpensive, look cool, light, standard, work well

Weaknesses:    Mmmm... none I can think of. No purple?

Bottom Line:   
If you need a single ring, this is a good choice. Mine works great on my 1x10 and on my SS. I haven't dropped the chain on either and I'm not running guides.

Strengths:    NONE! This ring lasted on my bike two weeks before it warped.

Weaknesses:    Flimsy, cheaply machined. I'm not sure who spec'ed this design out for mountain biking but they definitely cut some corners on the materials of this product.

Bottom Line:   
Raceface has had some troubles financially this year and I hope this design isn't a prelude to their future qua;ity of their products. My recommendation is to stick with the Evolve or Turbine rings which still have some decent strength to them.

I have the opportunity to pickup an older Fatback/FSA crankset for my 907 build (190mm) for under $100 with a newish RaceFace Narrow Wide 30T ring. This is basically the setup I was going for anyways (RF single chainring) but I want to make sure this is going to work on my frame. I will never be put ... Read More »

Single pivots and front ring size

Trying to dial in a 1x setup on my Superlight and I recall seeing something about them having issues due to their design when using the wrong size front ring (i.e. too big/too little) with a single ring setup. Anyone have experience with what tooth range is ideal? Thanks in advance.Read More »

Bash-less? single ring

So all you single-ring guys, with no bashguards..... Will the chain & ring get damaged if you hit a rock? I've been running a bash up front for quite some time, the thoughts of switching to a single ring with no bash kind of scare me esp when the wide narrow rings are like $65+..... anyone ...

Hi, I have searched google and MTBR and there is some talk about comparing the deus to older xt cranks, but I read somewhere that the new slx are very close to xt cranks when the rings are taken off. pictures uploaded are the exact models of the parts I'm talking about. I will be using the race fac ... Read More »

Time for single ring?

Thinking of taking my current Shimano M785 2x10 26/38 to a single ring setup. Is it at easy as simply removing the little ring and ditching the front derailleur? What other steps will I need to take? Also looking to switch out the 38 to make the climbs a little more manageable. 34 or 32 the way to g ... Read More »
