Range: 10.2-14.4% and Timing of 110.5-116.3° after TDC (top dead center) Patent Pending Advantages of our special Direct mount chainrings: *Finest design to provide excellent weight to strength ratio * min 12% lighter over stock round chainring *One of a kind special oval shape (Patent Pending) *Greatly improves traction and climbing abilities *Unique Patent Pending narrow-wide teeth profiles to keep your chain in place for minimum 12 months! *Special 3D teeth machining for ultimate mud relief decrease wear and noise dramatically *Superb quality and great look. *You will ride faster using ovals. If you keep using round ring then others will get quicker. *You will not "feel" the oval shape at all *Reduces stress on knees *We mastered our oval chainrings to perfection, so you can get best possible advantage from the oval/elliptical shape. What size should I choose? * 30T Oval chainring has an ovality of 28/32T and is best for someone who uses currently 29 or 30T round ring. * 32T oval ring will suit best someone who uses 31 or 32T chainring currently. While pedaling, you will feel similar effort to the one riding round 31T ring, but you will gain the speed similar to riding 34T chainring. Why our oval chainrings work Our 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. Smoother power delivery to your rear wheel means that you will be able to maintain better, constant cadence; get less stress on the joints (knees) and therefore be able to keep certain level of effort for longer. This results in higher average speed. Moreover, 11 studies made by various Universities in the World show that using oval chainrings human legs utilize more muscle groups (compared to round one), but each of them to lesser degree. Load from pedaling an oval chainring is spread over greater muscle mass which in effect gives you the feeling of fresher and more relaxed legs. It is world's finest oval chainring backed by tens of thousands of customers.
