Switch Oval Traction Chainring
With maximum efficiency and bank-saving affordability, the OneUp Components Switch Oval Traction Chainring keeps your chain in place through rowdy rides and only costs a fraction of the price of a complete direct mount chainring. Forged from a lightweight, yet strong alloy, this chainring takes a licking and keeps on ticking, and its narrow Wide tooth profile keeps your chain put through white-knuckle descents and rock garden rips. Thanks to a unique ring-to-spider interface, the ring removes and slips right over the crank arm with just a single tool (4mm Allen key), which prevents you from having to take off a crank, or spider, or bring along multiple tools just to make a simple gear change.

Not compatible with 12-speed XTR chains!
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Runs large
I struggled and struggled to install this, only to eventually learn that these chainrings are NOT compatible with XTR 12 speed HG+ chains. I presume they're not compatible with any of Shimano's 12 speed HG+ chains. Backcountry, please update your information on these rings to warn customers and please get your hands on Shimano HG+ chainrings.

Turn and Burn
- I've put it through the wringer
After spinning in circles forever, I put an oval ring on when my last Cinch ring finally wore out. I'd always run a 30T roung ring, and decided to go up to a 32T oval. I didn't, and still don't, notice any difference in the pedal stroke feel. What I did notice was more effort when I rode a demo bike with a 32T round ring and the same Eagle X01 drive-train.

If I’m going from a 30t round to a 30 tooth oval will I need any change in chain length?

Will this chain ring work on a SRAM GX drive train with a 64mm BCD? I'm looking to replace a 11 speed X-sync SRAM 30 tooth chain ring on a 1x11 GX drive train, but can't tell how this chain ring would attach to my crank set.

Hi Francois, this Switch Chainring is specifically for use with OneUp's spider so it won't work for you. But based on your image you'll need a 94BCD chainring which we have from Absolute Black (item # ABC0005).
