Our Premium 1X Oval 96BCD traction chainring is designed for Shimano XT M8000, SLX M7000 and MT700 1x or 2x cranks Only. These chainrings fit Boost and non-boost bikes as correct offset is realized by the crank spider itself, not chainring.
All 4 sizes have built-in standoffs to provide the ideal 1X chainline. Use the stock 1X Shimano M8 chainring bolts that come with crank. IMPORTANT - if you are converting from 2X crank to 1X and wish to mount 30T absoluteBLACK ring you need to purchase 1X bolts from Shimano, because 2X bolts are to short. Other sizes can use Shimano 2X bolts.
