New North Shore Billet Single Chainrings for SRAM Cranks, Universal Spiders for XX1
North Shore Billet has just launched a range of CNC’d alloy singlespeed chainrings for SRAM cranksets, giving riders more options for creating their own 1×10 drivetrains.
They’ll initially be available for GXP cranksets (carbon and alloy), with BB30 versions coming shortly thereafter. Tooth counts will range from 27 to 36, with all except a 35T filling that space. The tooth profiles are slightly thicker (7%, to be exact) than their standard chainrings to help keep the chain in place. The one-piece design replaces the spider and double chainrings, saving a bit more weight than just removing one ring. It also puts the ring in a central position for a better overall chainline.
First versions should ship next week, available for order now through their website. Retail is $60 each.
They’re also working on a spider to fit standard SRAM cranksets that’ll match up with XX1′s 76mm BCD chainrings, letting you add in XX1 parts without giving up a perfectly good set of cranks. Brilliant!
