MRP and Evil are imo the best and basically the standard. For affordablility Truvativ is good

The TruVita works well but they tend to wear out quickly. What size chainring are you going to run? If you are using a 36t you could get an MRB Mini. Some places have them on sale for about 80 bucks.

My recomendations would be BlackSpire, MRP, Evil or Livid(most expensive).

They will be tough. I have never used one but blackspire makes stuff to last on the shore. It needs to be durable
