Anyone have experience with the above chainrings, particularly shift quality? Thanks in advance

Hmmm, seems like I may have to be the Guinea Pig with this one. Lighter and cheaper than praxis, have shift pins so I hope they will shift better than my Extralights...... seem like they are worth a try.

I haven't used the Syrius rings (which are compact 110 BCD) but I have used several sets of Hegoa (standard, 130BCD) TA rings.

They are light, shift very well (better than Extralite, up with Praxxis), beautifully made.

Highly recommended.

Well my CR’s arrived today. Nicely made & weighed in @ 122g (52/36). Replaced Sram Red Exogram rings (52/36 @ 177g). Shifting on the stand with DA9150 seems much better than the Extralites maybe not as precise as the reds but will know more after this weekend, so far quite happy with the experiment.

Looking forward to the ride report. Maybe the extra grams are worth the sacrifice if better shifting than the Extralite.
Where did you buy them from please. Any duty paid on them once they arrived.
Cheers

Mine came from R2 bike, our hosts here have them also, but I wanted something else also that SB didn’t stock. Only paid GST on the order, no additional duties. I agree if the shifting is comparable to the main 3’s and Praxis’ rings the extra few grams will be a small price to pay IMO.

Good to know. Just GST is alright.
How long did your delivery take, I'm waiting on a parcel from R2 as well, was sent on the 29th.
