XT M8000 Grip Ring
Unite’s new Grip Rings offer excellent chain retention, great mud clearance and longevity, with a very high quality finish. Grip Rings are CNC machined from 7075 aluminum, one of the hardest grades of aluminum available, they are then hard-anodised to create an even tougher, more durable finish.
A large amount of wear occurs on the front face of chainrings, due to the extreme chain-line caused by 1x set ups, our extra wide alternating tooth profile improves both durability and retention for a longer period. As chains begin to stretch they start to bind in certain places, damaging the chain and ring; Grip Rings have specially machined recesses, which help to prevent this damage, increasing the longevity of the chainring and chain.
The rear face carries very little of the wear from the chainring and so has been heavily recessed to clear mud in some of the worst conditions. Grip Rings utilise a stiff and light design that is efficient and offers excellent protection from rock strikes.
