Narrow-wide 1x chanrings for new Shimano cranks?

Does anyone know if there are any available 1x narrow-wide chain rings available for the newer style Shimano r9000/r8000/r7000 cranks? I'd like to run a 1x setup with a 40T for cyclocross.

Bikes: Too many. Cannondale SuperSix, Trek Remedy 8, Trek Crossrip+ get the most ride time.

https://www.wolftoothcomponents.com/...shimano-cranks you will have to do a small amount of filing as detailed on that page. The hollow, 3d shape of the Shimano rings makes aftermarket rings look a little goofy on those cranks.

As mentioned above, Wolftooth, and I believe there are others who have Shimano 4x110bcd rings available.

Regarding the bolts, they do look a little odd with regular chainring bolts, but it's still functional. I'm not sure if they have them for the R8000 or R9100 yet, but Shimano does make some outer chainring bolts for the 6800 and 9000 generation cranks for use with smaller chainrings. I have the 6800 ones on mine as I run Absolute Black rings. Absolute black and Rotor also sell some and may have them for the newer cranks, but from my experience with the AB ones, I like the Shimano's better.
