We are pretty excited to announce our wide/narrow tooth CX rings. The are on sale now and shipping next week: Products | wolftoothcomponents.com
I am sure you all have questions so lay them on me. Let me answer your first question though on clutch/no-clutch rear derailleur:
We are testing with both Clutch and no-clutch. Certainly the clutch won't hurt, but about 1/3-1/2 our mtbk customers are not using a clutch with very few chain drops.
CX has some mechanical advantages of mtbk too (more teeth on ring engaged and short cage rear derr) so we think in most conditions no clutch will be needed.
Clutch or not, we still think a chain catcher will be needed in REALLY clumpy muddy conditions (our mtbk data gathering tells us this, as some top World Cup teams are doing this now even with a clutch).
