Strengths:    Durable, Comes in many sizes, Black ano finish, light on the budget. Many shops will have it in stock.

Weaknesses:    Slightly heavier then some of the competition, but still very light. Softer metal.

Bottom Line:   
This is a solid product that will look great on your ride, and be very reliable. If you are looking to make the lightest ride out there, there are other alternatives, but this chainring will never hold you back.
Also works great with Truvativ cranks.

Strengths:    cheaper than other brands

Weaknesses:    wore quickly

Bottom Line:   
After a year the teeth are worn and the chain jumps off the ring, this is not acceptable. I will get a chromo ring if i can find one.

Strengths:    Solid design, Runs very smooth, wears well.

Weaknesses:    The E13 is lighter, and I think they could lighten this ring up a bit too.

Bottom Line:   
Solid Chain ring that is simple and looks good. If you dont run a bash guard this could be a good option for dirtjumping or light dh. Also they come in a wide variaty of sizes, so what ever suites your need they have it.

Strengths:    Strong, strong, strong!

Weaknesses:    None yet.

Bottom Line:   
What can one say about a single chainring, except that this one is very strong, works well with my MRP, and is still true after one DH season.
