Absolute Black's XX1 chainring for SRAM GXP 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 finish of Absolute Black products, the chainring you receive may not EXACTLY match those depicted.
There are two different axle length options when purchasing a SRAM crank. The longer axle is easily identifiable by measuring the drive side axle spacer. A 15mm wide spacer is for the long axle, if your spacer is 9mm wide you need the SRAM XX1 short Chainring. This small yet important difference comes in the chainring spacing and chainline.
Additionally, compatible SRAM cranks will feature splines and three bolts to mount the chainring or spider. Compatibility is mixed across SRAM's product line, so cranks should be visually inspected before ordering.
This chainring is designed for proper chainline when used with a GXP or long spindle crank. For short spindles or BB30/PF30 cranks please order the Short BB30/PF30-compatible chainring. Every Absolute Black chainring is carefully engineered to an ideal chainline.
