absoluteBLACK oval chainrings work because riders do not produce power evenly through a pedal stroke –the musculature of human legs makes it difficult to maintain an even power delivery to a round chainring. Believe it or not, but a round chainring doesn't transfer torque to your rear wheel as smoothly as an Oval one. Oval rings work with the natural human physiology. Oval chainrings maximize the part of the stroke where power is produced and minimize resistance where it isn't. As a direct consequence, Oval rings enhance a cyclist’s ability to spin with a smoother power delivery and feel much easier on legs while climbing. Meaning you will go faster and get less tired. You will actually feel your pedal stroke to be more "round" with an Oval chainring than with a round chainring.
absoluteBLACK make oval and round chainrings for almost every crankset on the market. If you don't see rings listed or in stock for your crankset, please let us know your exact crank brand and model and we will be in contact with an ETA and price. We can usually get your required chainrings overnight. We prefer you make contact first to confirm you are ordering the correct chainrings for your cranks before purchasing.
