The new Shimano XTR, XT, and SLX 12spd Hyperglide+ chain works differently than other products on the market so Wolf Tooth engineers developed a completely new tooth profile to provide optimal chain retention and durability when using this new chain technology. 

  • The new HG+ chain interacts with the chainring much differently than a traditional wide/narrow design. Wolf Tooth engineers spent the time to understand how the system works and design a new tooth profile that is optimized for this system.

  • Engineered proprietary tooth profile maintains the quiet and smooth performance of the HG+ drivetrain with legendary Wolf Tooth chain retention.

  • Prevents premature ring and chain wear that can come from non-optimized profiles.


  • Any Race Face Cinch™ system crankset.
  • Compatible with Shimano 12-speed Hyperglide+ chains
  • Shimano 12 speed HG+ drivetrains use a 52mm Boost chainline for both 148mm Boost and 142mm standard rear hub spacing


If you plan to ride in very muddy conditions, we recommend a chainguide or chainkeeper in addition to a clutch-type rear derailleur. Without these precautions, you may experience chaindrops and/or chainsuck.
