Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A revelation! As always a high quality Hope product. Moved from using a chain guide, to this narrow wide plus clutch mech.......amazing. Less noise, less drag no dropped chain. Why wouldn't you? 28 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Отличный продукт, правда цена могла бы быть и пониже. Имею две таких. На 32 и 34. Кассета 11-36, расширять пока не планирую. Хочу переждать и купить 11-скоростную 11-40 от Shimano, надеюсь, в следующем году они снизойдут с ней и до групп XT/SLX...Задний переключатель со средней лапкой, Shadow+. Цепь пока так и не смог заставить соскочить, но лёгкую верхнюю направляющую-успокоитель, всё-таки планирую поставить - на всякий случай. Помимо прочего, выбрал Hope, т.к. по сравнению с теми же Race Face NW тут выше профиль зуба и есть проточка между зубьями - при перекосах, цепь должна лучше ложиться. В теории. Но еще лучше, как мне кажется, это реализовано у Blackspire, при внимательном рассмотрении она почти копия NW звезды от Sram. Качество - Hope. Но цена мне кажется всё-таки несколько высоковатой, причём и для продуктов от конкурентов так же. Ну, видимо, есть спрос. Но за такую цену, могли бы и бонок насыпать в комплекте... Кстати о бонках. Я использую эту звезду на системе Shimano XT780 (в оригинале тройник) и родные бонки не подошли, пришлось немного стачивать втулки. Стандартные 4мм бонки под сингл тоже не подойдут - будут слишком коротки. Для такой системы и звезды, в идеале, нужны бонки, с длиной втулки 5,5...5,9мм 03 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid from Hope I bought this to convert to a 1x setup alongside an XT 11-36 cassette. I went for the 30t option because where I ride is nothing but technical hills, I'm either climbing or descending rocky runs that need very few pedal strokes. It made sense to sacrifice the top end of my gear range and keep the low end. If you ride more single track, trails or use roads to link riding spots then you'll probably want a bigger ring. Really sturdy and well made from Hope as always. The chain will brush the 2nd cog when in the highest gear so it's not a perfect setup on my stump jumper fsr but I can live with it. A larger size ring may also solve that as from 32t upwards the alignment is slightly more outward. There is also a bit of a rumble sound / feel from the chainring to get used to. I've put that down to the tons of extra contact you get from the wider teeth and don't see it as a problem. 02 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bit of kit, keeps everything really simple.. As kit go's Hope's usually out of budget for most but i took a gamble on this I'm running 34 to 34 and its great on my all Alpine. I've managed to get rid of my bash etc and the chain always stay's on, apart from when my rear mech imploded. With out having the bash & guide its also a lot easier to clean the bike. 15 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's hope what more do you need to know This is a stunning piece of milling as you would expect from hope. I have just overhauled my transmission so I thourght I would upgrade my old raceface (single) chainring for the latest style being the FAT THIN rings, already use a clutch mech so didn't think it would make much differance to the ride, how I was wrong so much more security than before, a lot less noise, better chain pickup, and it's hope so it looks the nutz aswell! Do yourself a favour and buy this;) 14 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another quality product from Hope As with all things Hope this is a beautifully machined piece of kit which has completely transformed my riding. I bought it along with a 40T-Rex sprocket, Zee FR rear mech and Saint shifter to convert my XT 11-36 cassette to a 1x10 set-up. Like so many people before me, after my first ride on the new set-up I had to ask myself "Why didn't I go 1x10 sooner?" The simplicity, chain security, lack of drag or chain-slap and ease of cleaning/maintenance is a no-brainer. My bike looks and performs better than ever. I chose the Hope ring over its RaceFace counterpart as it has slightly taller teeth which I figured would enhance chain security further. However I had to add some spacers between the ring and spider arms to get the optimum chain-line on my bike. No big deal but I believe the RaceFace ring has this option built in by using assymetric bolt threads. Just something to bear in mind if you think your chain-line needs tweeking. All in all this is a great product which I am extremely happy with. Nice one Hope! 28 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Oh yes, fit one today I upgraded every pert of my drive train Xt cassette Xt medium cage mec Xt chain Hope T-Rex And a 32t retainer chain ring. They system works flawlessly I've never dropped a chain and it looks good. Remember to order new (smaller) chain ring bolts when moving to a 1x10/9 set up, if you're not fitting a bash ring! 18 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rempli entièrement sa fonction Super. Plus besoin de derrailleur avant, ni commande, ni cable, ni gaine. Super gain de poids. La chaine ne saute jamais même sans anti derraillement. Certe en utilisation cross country mais franchement rien à redire et celà même avec un derrailleur arrière sans technologie shadow+. 06 May 2014

Answer: 
You will need outer bolts to link a ring with a bash (same principle as running a double or the outers on a triple).
