MRP has launched into the narrow/wide single chainring fray with their unique Wave ring that features offset left-center-right alternating tooth configuration. MRP says the design wears better than traditional narrow-wide rings while providing increased chain security–though they still recommend a 1x guide for rowdy conditions, and a clutch-style derailleur is highly recommended for all conditions.

An $80 SRAM direct-mount version will be available in early 2015 with 28-, 30-, 32-, 34-, or 36-teeth, and in offsets for 24 or 30mm spindle cranks. A $50 104 BCD version in 30-, 32-, 34-, 36- and 38-tooth version will follow soon thereafter. The company is also considering a Race Face Cinch system-compatible version.

About the author: Don Palermini

Chicago-born Don Palermini became a cycling-based life-form in the sixth grade after completing a family road bike tour of his home state. Three years later he bought his first mountain bike to help mitigate the city's pothole-strewn streets, and began exploring the region's unpaved roads and trails. Those rides sparked a much larger journey which includes all manner of bike racing, commuting, on- and off-road bike advocacy, and a 20-plus-year marketing career in the cycling industry that landed him at his current gig with Santa Cruz bicycles. Now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area, his four favorite words in the English language are "breakfast served all day," together in that order.
