96 mm BCD Chainrings for Shimano XT M8000 and SLX M7000


Looking for a 1X chainring for your new XT with the proven chain retention of our Drop-Stop® chainrings? Wolf Tooth has what you need in the form of a beautifully machined asymmetrical 96 mm BCD that provides the ideal 1X chainline of 49mm. Note that the 28T & 26T sizes will mount to the inner 64BCD mounting position on these cranksets.


  • These rings fit on the Shimano XT M8000 and SLX M7000 1x or 2x cranksets, and here are instructions on how to measure your BCD.  
  • For 1x9, 1x10, 1x11 and 1x12 drivetrains (including SRAM Eagle)
      • Compatible with all 10, 11, and 12 speed chains (Including SRAM Eagle)
      • If using a 9 speed drivetrain use a 10 speed chain (shifts and works well on a 9 speed drivetrain and fits the ring tighter for better chain retention).
    • Provide a great chainline on most boost bikes.  See this explanation for details.
