XT M8000 / SLX M7000 Traction Chainrings


Our Oval design has 3 main benefits; traction, traction and more traction. Forget any of the power gain claims that you've heard from the road side of the sport. For mountain, oval rings provide a more constant torque to the rear wheel thereby reducing spinouts and stalls on tough climbs.


  • Get ultimate traction by smoothing out the torque you deliver to your rear tire
  • 12% ovality (32T is equal to a 30T-34T range)
  • 115° clocking from crank arm puts the major axis in your power stroke
  • Narrow Wide tooth profile eliminates chain drop with the perfect chain mesh fit
  • Saves over 30g versus stock ring (32T)
  • Perfect chainline 49mm (corrected from stock 50.4mm) for a quieter drivetrain with improved chain wear and best drop performance.
  • Includes shims to allow compatibility with your stock Shimano 1X or 2X hardware (no need to buy a new bolt pack)
  • Aggressive crud chamfers for awesome mud shedding performance and extended ring life.
  • Reinforced Wide tooth design provides maximum ring durability when run without a bash.
  • Made from 6mm hard wearing 7075-T6 aluminum plate
