Hi everyone , I've got a shimano M780 XT Hollowtech crankset 10 Speed which I coverted to a 2x10. The chainring a have worn out and need replacing ( didn't last very long) Can anyone recommended a better set of chainrings ? Sizes are 24x32 with a 11-34 cassette on the back. Ethirteen bashring guard as well. Any advice will be very helpful!

Cheers

    How many chains did you go through to the rings? You must be doing a lot of climbing to wear out a 24t inner.
  • About 3 or 4 . The chains have all been correct that I've used . I do a lot of climbing recently. Was building up my fitness for megavalanche this year. So long distance rides as well

    Seems like they've done alright to me.

    I'd go for what you've got again tbh. They shift the best.
  • Ok, So you don't think there's any other brands or product that would/perform better than XT ?
  • Arent deore all steel while the xt are alu?

    Bit of a weight gain, but is a trade off between weight/longevity... doubt youd notice the weight difference mind.

    Alloy will wear faster than steel, especially in bad conditions, stick with steel.
