Hi all!

Could you suggest me a light option for a 1x 46t or 48t chainring? I ride a shimano DA crankset and I didn't find nothing interesting for it...

Thanks! :beerchug:

They should all be the same weight as there is nothing to them. A 110 bcd spider is 60g; bolts are 15g; 48t /110bcd is about 120g = 195g If you go direct mount, you're looking at 120g (Easton)

Have you looked at absolute black? Once everything shows up I'm going to be running a DA crank with 48t oval ring and the bolt covers

For shimano cranks with 4 arms I suspect you are out of luck. Shimano's rings are relatively light already.

Have you checked Garbaruk chainrings? Don't know the weights but they seem fairly light.
Narrow wide profile and available both round and oval. I hada 46t their direct mount chainring for sram cranks in my previous bike. Did not measure the weight but at least it did what it was supposed to.
