Trying to move away from Middleburn with this one, have a pair of RaceFace turbine lo-pro cranks and want a decent set of compact drive rings, ideally I'd prefer a 48t outer ring. Possible ramped rings would be handy.....down to you guys, any ideas?

RaceFace rings might go well then ?

No idea what they are like

teeth count not right, but that's a quick link to have a look around.

FSA black with silver teeth look quite nice.

Or err a set of Shimano's ?
TA's ?

KCNC any good - similar in looks to the Raceface black with silver teeth.

I was inching towards TA but if I go down that route it will take me a bit longer as they're pricey rings.

I've got some KCNC rings on my Stumpy. Very light! Think I'd be a little weary of putting a lot of miles on them, as I think they might wear quick. I do limited miles on my Stumpy so it's not a real issue. Lovely rings though :)

Probably not much help as im single ring only but my e thirteen guide ring that i bought second hand has put in so many miles and is still going fine. When it came i thought 'that too light, wont last long'.
