The Review
I had this chainring for about 1.5 years. I also taken this for over 3000km of use.
My first impression about this chainring is that this will hold my chain even without the chainguides. Well after installing this on the first day, I immediately rode my bike and have a hop and and a small jumps, well, I am pretty impressed, it really holds my chain in place, Oh by the way, I had this in my bike the 34T Blue version, together with a long cage Shimano XT RD Long cage non clutch mechanism, I installed this on my Shimano XT 3x Crankset (removed Granny Ring and and Big ring, I am running my bike since 2013 in 1x10 setup) and an 11-34T Shimano cogset, I rode this thru ruts, rock gardens, small bumps and jump and all I can say is that it served its purpose, I also have 3 chain drops with with when my gearing setup was with the smallest cogs (11T)during my fast descent in a rocky trail, well I think I this is normal because the chain tension between those gear setup was the minimum,The only thing that I dont like with this is the anodized color blue was removed, well what can we expect, all chain ring will have to be wear due the its interaction with the chain. All I can say is that this narrow wide chain ring is big bang for the buck, and I will recommend this to all of my friens.
