Absolute Black's 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.
