Trick New Single Chainring From Race Face for Fixed Gears, Single Speeds

We spotted a prototype of this at Sea Otter, and now Race Face has finalized the design and gone into production with the Single, a single chainring for fixies and singlespeed bikes, both road and mountain.

It’ll come in 32, 34 and 36 tooth sizes with blue, black, red and gold color options. The 36T size weighs in at just 38g, but, thanks to it’s extra width, remains stiff. The Single is machined from a 4mm plate, versus 3mm for most rings, which lets them have a slightly wider outer area that leaves a lip on both sides of the teeth. U.S. retail is TBD, but it should be available by August.

The 4mm width gives them room to machine on each side, keeping the ring stiff while adding some beauty.

Lots of machine work and some laser etched graphics decorate the outside face.

Seems kind of useless for a road application if it tops out at 36t. Turn out a 42t and then we’re talking.

Not all single speeds are road bikes.
