AbsoluteBLACK Spiderless Oval Chainring
The Absolute Black Spiderless Oval is a chainring for a 1x10 or 1x11 setup and smoothens out your pedal stroke. These oval chainrings have a turnover rate of 11%: the 32 tooth version has a minimum of 30 and a maximum of 34 teeth (see illustration). Each pedal move has a 'dead point'. This is when the cranks are vertical. At this point it is not possible to apply pressure, that's why you want to get over this point as fast as possible. Oval rings are narrower where they reach their 'dead point', meaning it's easier to get over this dead point. What happens next is you reach your point of maximum power. You will pass your dead point faster with less power loss, to reach your point of maximum power. This allows efficient pedaling causing less fatigue. This chainring has built in spacers of 2 mm and screw holes to create a better chain line. The ovality of this chainring is 11% which means you need a couple of days to get used to this,but after that there are only benefits! This chainring is equipped with the most advanced narrow / wide tooth profile and guarantees a long lifespan. Easy to mount, just by sliding it over the crank, and bolt it down with 3 screws. You only need an allen key.
