We Only recommend Dura-ace / Ultegra 11spd chain or Sram Eagle 12spd chain for proper clearance of mounting tabs
Absolute Black always recommends using a new chain when fitting new chainrings.
SRAM Yaw front derailleur compatibility Due to the construction of SRAM Yaw front derailleurs, our Sub Compact chainrings are not compatible with them. If you replace your Yaw front derailleur with a Shimano equivalent (there are no indexing issues between Shimano FD and SRAM shift levers) you will be able to use our Sub Compact chainrings.
