Hi all. Just got myself an etap HRD group set for new ride and a dzero red powermeter. I need some chainrings for this 110bcd 52/36.

I would like to stay with SRAM rings for now. I think I need x-glide r but want them in black as pictured on the SRAM site.

Problem is I can only find these as Red in the grey colour. The black version is listed as Force.

Two questions
1. Are the rings actually the same?
2. Is there a x-glide r inner ring?

There is some terrible SRAM availability in the UK right now for some reason.

Dzero HB version or NHB?

SRAM availability issues also exist in the rest of Europe. Mantel and Bike24 do have stock.
Most "innovations" in cycling are solutions for non-existing problems.

Hb (which I think is the new standard?). The SRAM range is a bit a mess tbh.

I've been in a similar boat trying to figure out what the latest revision is in black. I may just order praxis instead.

Bought the Glide R set paired with Quarq Dzero spider.

The chainring is "dual use" type in the sense that if you run the Non-hidden bolt, it fits one way around and if you run the hidden bolt (like with the Dzero) then you just turn the rings 180 degrees to fit.
There are two pins on the ring to prevent chain suck

worthy to note that if you run the hidden bolt setup, you will need a special chainring bolt for the hole behind the crank.

I am looking at similar setup.

One needs the Buzz series chainring from Praxis.

Or Absoluteblack oval for sram.

To save a bit of money I've been using Sram Red 10-speed chainrings on my 11-speed system with a Quarq crankset. The 10-speed version (50 tooth) costs about half of the 11-speed version and I find no difference between the two in functionality except a seven-grams difference (10-speed is a bit heavier). You can find 10-speed version made for a hidden bolt with the hidden bolt already installed and only one chain guard installed (as opposed to two chain guards on the 11-speed version).
