NSB Drops New XT Rings

Building on the success of our Variable Tooth chainring line, North Shore Billet is excited to release our 1x rings for the 2016 XT M8000 cranks. Committed to North American manufacturing—from raw material sourcing to the creation of the final product—we’re proud to don the “Made in Canada” moniker. Our latest range of rings for the M8000 cranks keep true to this statement while adding an exciting “first” for the XT line of cranks; 28T ring compatibility.

Due to the high demand for small rings, we’ve designed a 28T ring for 1x use. By mounting to the 64mm BCD and offsetting the ring towards the spider, we are able to achieve a 49mm chainline—the perfect place for a 1x ring to be.

Specs:

      Fits Shimano Deore XT M8000 FC-M8000-1 FC-M8000-2

      49mm Chainline

      CNC machined from 7075 T6511 Aluminum

      Ring Sizes: 28T 30T 32T 34T 36T

Our Rings, Our Process

High quality parts come from high quality metal; we’ve found this to be important for any component, but most notably for chainrings. As a result all North Shore Billet chainrings are created using US made Kaiser 7075 aluminum. The raw aluminum starts as large, rolled sheets that we have saw-cut to our required specifications. These blanks are then delivered to our Whistler factory ready to be machined.
