Absolute Black's XX1 chainring for SRAM cranks is a welcome upgrade to SRAM's single chainring drive trains. Each Absolute Black chainring utilizes "Narrow-Wide" technology, making them ideal for 1 x 9, 1 x 10, and 1 x 11 drivetrains. Essentially, the chainring is machined to fit perfectly with the male and female shapes of a chain, guaranteeing extremely reliable chain retention abilities. The "Narrow-Wide" tooth profile, holds the chain on the chainring without a chain guide during pedaling, coasting and backpedaling even on the roughest of terrain. The Absolute Black Narrow-Wide chainring can be used in tandem with, or independently of clutch equipped derailleurs in order to minimize or eliminate chain drop. Each chainring weighs significantly less than the stock SRAM XX1 chainring and spider.
Due to the nature of the finsih of Absolute Black products, the chainring you receive may not EXACTLY match those depicted.
