Details

Oval chainrings work because a rider does not produce power evenly through a pedal stroke; they maximize the part of the stroke where power is produced and minimize resistance where it isn't. Oval rings make the spin cycle a lot smoother and are easier on legs while climbing. Believe it (or not), but a round chainring doesn't transfer torque to your rear wheel as smoothly as an Oval one. You will actually feel your stroke to be more "round" with an Oval shape than with a round chainring.

Why it matters? Traction, Traction and Traction. With oval rings, rear tire traction improves greatly on loose and slippery terrain. Your legs will be less tired and your speed improved. Climbing will become easier then ever before. It is world's best oval chainring. 

* 28T (64BCD) Oval chainring has the ovality of 26/30T and is best for someone who uses currently 26 or 28T round ring.

* 32T oval ring will suit best someone who uses 30 or 32T chainring currently. While pedaling, you will feel quite similar effort to the one riding round 31T ring (as the smallest diameter of the oval is 30T), but you will gain the speed similar to riding 33/34T chainring. 

* 34T Oval chainring has the ovality of 32/36T and is best for someone who uses currently 33 or 34T round ring.

* 36T Oval chainring has the ovality of 34/38T and is best for someone who uses currently 36 or 38T round ring. 

It is ideal for 1x 9/10/11 and Singlespeeds. Oval (elliptical) chainring does not compromise the work of clutch mechanism in rear derailleur(video on the bottom). It also does not require chain tensioner when using in singlespeed application. Riding out of saddle on the uphill will become more pleasant. 

32T chainring has build-in 2mm spacers and threaded holes (M8x0.75) to accommodate this size on spider. Ovality of the chainrings is 11%. These chainrings also help you to recover after knee injuries as pedaling becomes smoother and less exhausting. It is the most advanced oval chainring currently on the market. 

The most advanced, Patent Pending narrow/wide tooth profile ever produced, guarantee minimum 12 months of excellent chain retention capabilities! We mean it. Always use a new chain with a new chainring.

The World's best oval (elliptical) narrow/wide 104bcd mtb chainring - period. Non circular chainrings, Non-round chainrings.
