I've just upgraded my rigid steel to 1x and fitted this narrow wide. Even riding hard trying to keep up with my son on a full sus @ Cwmcarn didn't cause my chain to come off. And the orange is beautiful.
Had this chainring for over 6 months and no dropped chains at all. Used with 10 speed slx/deore stuff with no chainguide needed. Looks to be lasting well (has outlasted 2 new chains and cassettes already)
Very pleased with this, it's excellent quality at a reasonable price. Not only does it not slip off as much as my last chainring but it feels smoother and improves the performance if my bike with the reduced weight. This chainring is so light that my race face screws weighed more than it. An overall excellent product
I've intentionally waited until I'd put a few rides in before reviewing my 30T ring on my XX1 system. At a fraction of the price of Sram's this is way better. Better engagement, Better retention, Better durability by a country mile. Deeply impressed with this ring. Oh & I've yet to drop the chain. All this & top quality.
I combined it with ordinary 9speed setup, without front derailleur and not chain tensioner. At first it felt unreal, and I was suspicious it wont go well at first ride. BUT it performed great. Not a single chain fall or hiccup. I havent tried any branded NW ring, but I dont see how it could be any better. Thank you Superstar!
Had many rings from SSC now and they are every bit as good as the more expensive brands! Never had a dropped chain over 3 years of use and that is with the 104bcd and 96bcd m8000 ones....good stuff keep it up!
Decided to venture into the world of 1x setups on my older Giant Anthem, went for the 34t and it has been perfect, one dropped chain after a crash, apart from that no issues at all using my standard length rear mech. Great quality product with very fast shipping. Only slight negative is that it didnt come with the chainring bolts.
