Arguably responsible for some of the finest looking chainrings available on the market, Absolute Black has a unique eye for design, coupled with an unquestionable knack for engineering.
Many of us in the cycling world have probably already seen the bizarre oval chainrings that many road cyclists have opted to use instead of traditional circular chainrings. As an inherent result of a circular chainring, cyclist produce an imperfect pedal stroke, which generates uneven power throughout the stroke. The Oval Narrow-Wide XX1 style chainring by Absolute Black is designed to even out the rider’s pedal stroke and create much smoother cycles while transferring torque to the rear wheel in a uniform fashion. By eliminating the “dead spot” on the chainring, riders will feel their pedal stroke become more “circular” and smooth. With a more stable transfer of power to the rear wheel, riders can expect greatly increased traction on loose and slippery terrain, making ascents much easier. Additionally fatigue on cyclist’s legs decreases as a result of a smoother pedal stroke, making hours in the saddle much more enjoyable.
The Oval Narrow-Wide XX1 style chainring from Absolute Black utilizes specially machined teeth that take advantage of your chain’s natural shape. By crafting each tooth profile to fit either the “male” or “female” links in your chain, the chainring essentially locks the chain in place, minimizing the possibility of your chain dropping or becoming tangled.
