Praxis Works 1x Cyclocross/Gravel Chainring

With its Wave tooth profile, the Praxis Works 1x Cyclocross/Gravel Chainring gets the job done whether you’re CX’ing in mud or grinding some gravel! The Wave profile applies alternating lateral force to each chain link to actively retain the chain to the ring – a huge step beyond typical narrow/wide rings that rely solely on friction. Praxis 1x rings are machined from 7075 T6 aluminum for superior stiffness and are hard anodized for additional durability.


  • Crankset: Compatible with 110 BCD, 5-bolt road and gravel cranksets
  • Chain: Compatible with 10-, 11- and 12-speed drivetrains (not compatible with Campagnolo groupsets)


  • Color: Black
  • Cold forged and hard anodized 7075-T6 aluminum
  • Weight: 72 grams (42T)

    Like other reviewers, I got this to go along with my new power2max NGeco power meter for my CX/gravel rig. So far, so good!

      Awesome Corinna! Glad you are enjoying your new Praxis Chainring. Let us know if there is anything else we can do!

    I purchased this along with a power2max NGeco power meter. The chainring is excellent and the customer service sets a real high-water mark. I sent a question via email, and Josh quickly responded with an answer and a video on how to access the chainring/power meter. To top it off, they put the chainring on the power meter before sending it to me. It took only a few minutes to install the PM and I was off riding. Kudos to Power Meter City for their help excellent customer service!

    I got this to replace a direct mount Praxis chainring that came on my Ibis Hakka MX, basically the same thing, when I added a power meter. Chain retention is not nearly as good. The image here shows a wide tooth profile, which is similar to what my direct mount chainring looks like. But the chainring I received has a narrower tooth profile. I’m not sure if Praxis changed the design or what, but this chainring certainly is not equivalent to the direct mount chainring that came with the Hakka. Would not recommend.

      Hi Phil. I know we spoke on this but just to leave a note for others, Praxis updated the tooth profile on their Wave chainring to accommodate 12-speed SRAM and Shimano cranks, while maintaining 10- and 11-speed compatibility. The image on the page is the correct one. Thanks!

    This is a very nicely made ring. I use it on my 1x gravel bike and have not dropped a chain yet! A little detail I like is the etched chain picture so you know which link goes on which tooth which is otherwise easy for folks like me to forget.

    • Power Meter City

      Hi, Thank you for this kind review! We really appreciate it. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do!

    Cool chainring purchased to provide compatibility for my power2max NGeco on my 40T SRAM 1X set up.

    • Power Meter City

      Hi Brad. Yes – these rings work great with the power2max. We’re glad you are enjoying it!
