Cyclocross and Gravel chainring for 1X in a new format called Z-Rings — titled because of the unique characteristic that make WickWërks Z-Rings the next step forward. The “Z” is Narrow-Wide Extended — extended for ease of installation, extended for chain interaction improvements, extended for better durability, and extended for more fun!
Cyclocross & Gravel Z-Rings are available in these configurations:
- 38 Tooth – 110 mm BCD – for Traditional 5-Bolt Mounting, Sram 22 5-Bolt, and Shimano Road/CX 4-Bolt.
- 40 Tooth – 110 mm BCD – for Traditional 5-Bolt Mounting, Sram 22 5-Bolt, and Shimano Road/CX 4-Bolt.

The New Cyclocross & Gravel 1X 40 Tooth Singles – The Z-Rings
The new 40 tooth WickWerks Z-rings will fit many standard cranks at 110 mm BCD. Select your crank style from the order option above. Most cranks with this bolt circle are configured for a pair of rings (2X), but these Z-Rings are made for conversion and will work on most existing cranks. It’s a simple conversion to a single chainring (1X) drivetrain.
Converting from a double: Check the bolt pattern of your crank first — make sure it is the 110 BCD in one of the compatible configurations listed above. Order the right rings using the options for selecting your crank. If you prefer to use Conversion Tabs, order those and standard length bolts. If you prefer to mount the Z-Rings directly, get a set of the Shorty bolts to attach them. If the crank is compatible, the conversion does NOT require a new crank!
